Give Shinnok love!

Just a general reminder that in a thread asking for people to like Shinnok more, with ideas presented as to why, be prepared to handle the fact that people will object and also present their ideas as to why they do not like him.

Just throwing that out there in case people get "offended" about what is said about their favourite.



True.. true, I'm all playful with this. I'm not twisting anyone's arm so they give him love tough I would like to, lol jk



I love Shinnok's design- except for the skeleton arms. I wish that his arms flashed to the skeleton look whenever he used his necromancer powers, otherwise they would appear his normal skinny arms lol.

I am curious about his "samurai" DLC look - do you think it matches/fits the character?

I think he looks like a t-rex or that he got really desperate for food with those tiny skelly arms, but skelly flashing as you mention would be great.. haven't tough of that.
If a samurai would match a sorcerer-type character who would totally not horribly kill himself as punishment for failure or whatever? I can't say I see anything fitting about it tough I'm all for more costumes, can't cry because they add one ya don't like since nothing force ya to use it. It may still look good in game but I'm not all dancing over it.

So much for love, heh? Lots of Shang Tsung except and except, sound good to me, not to mention Shang Tsung is awesome, also one of my fav. But all that's a bit too much rant for me to handle.

Sorry but i don´t support "generic stuff" on characters, imo is a steal if shinnok makes some tsung moves. And imo shang tsung like happened mk3 and mk9 is a joke or gag, also boon has showed him like as a very stupid character and supposdely tsung is a great master not an ass licker of shao-khan.
Problem is that in mk2 he was showed praying to shao-khan for avioid the punishment, but then in mk3, the movies, the series and then specially in mk9, nrs has painted him like a stupid child and a slimy good for nothing. In other words NRS has exagerated and ridiculized to him. Also they have stupid design in mk3 and mk9- But At least in the old outfit in mk9 is better a bit in comparision with young outif............ like as reboot him sucks except few moves that were remastered in comparision with mk2 mk3 and mkda.

Shinnok might have some scrawny arms, but he backhands the hell out of your jaw in his X-Ray!

The best things about Shinnok: His extensive vocabulary and that x-ray. It just screams, "B!TCH BETTER HAVE MY MONEY!"

Well then, every characters steal from each others cuz I'm sure they can all give you a kick in the face. :gr_jest:
Tough I have not seen such a slap of doom before his x-ray before.. as mentioned xD
Just that is good enough to make him his very own b****slaper character.

You may hate Shinnok and his pinky aura still that really is just a color but then Shang Tsung is a joke and them outfits sucks... ya played that ''stupid MKM''... I'm starting to wonder what you even like about MK.. there must be something since you're here xD

Wait, londonhellgate likes John Tobias...who by the way is collecting paychecks from Zynga as we speak...yet he calls Mythologies "stupid".

Correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't Mythologies made by Tobias WITHOUT Edward J. Boon?

lol are you saying that mkm sz is an invention of Tobias? really? go to the tobias ´s twitter and you will find that him has adapted the ideas from mkmz for "mk4" storyline only.................. In other words tobias did not the mkm sz ´s story line seem.

Also happened the same since mk3, tobias only has did the concepts and designs of characters at mkm:sz even more in mk4,
maybe i´m wrong but i have understood that tobias was a producer and artist designers. Then in mk4 he adapted the history of mkm sz to mk4..............

are you ´fn jocking me? I consider stupid to the mkm sz, not by tobias ´s concepts, my dear TT, lol
i consider so much stupid this game by the horrible martial choreography like happened in mk3, by the stupid 3d bosses that it ´s have and "how" stupid Dimitrios has very bad adapted the costumes in shinook ´s live actor. Please don´t try confuse me, lol.

and and 1000 times ,who had the rotten mind for bring to Gary Wingert for play as shinnok with his drunken stupid face? seem the draxxon ´s father XD.

But let me see that stupid ed boon has ranted sometimes, during 2011 across interviews, saying that him hates to mkm sz like if him has made it............... and the reality is that mkm sz is 32141231243214123 better than mk3 and who made made it in 1995? yes by stupid boon in martial choreography in ´fn 1995 year. But again too the mkmz martial choreopgraphy sucks in comparision with mk2 and mk1 games.

really love his revamp. also, his acting/voice fit so well. my hair rose up during the story mode when he said 'how DARE you' to johnny , really hope he sticks around for at least another game before they bring shang tsung back. not that I don't love him too but shinnok deserves his chance to shine and they did a great job with him

edit: forgot to mention, I just LOVE how he slaps people around lol

Imo is not about the likes, is about what stuff corresponds for to be made or not.
Is a bit like i have said (subtly)more above replying to TT, the design of shinnok from tobias is fine, but he adaptation for the actor ´s costume was very bad created and just the actor ´s face did not fit for play as dark god role.......... again is about if some stuff is correct or not. Why shinnook in mk4 is huge different, specially at face? it is very antagonistic surprise: mk team in mk4 knew that shinnok mkm sz as final result on previous game, was a huge fail. even this design from mkmsz is not back anymore neither 100% in MKA

Why don't you read the ending credits of Mythologies yourself?! After all, YOU are the one worshipping Tobias and assassinating Boon's character. Care to explain to me why Gigante Studios was a massive bust?!

Huh? you seem that you has not readed the end-credits of mkm SZ, lol

About studio gigante is a complete different history, also midway was a big company with many years over, and studio gigante was young company, not have comparision. Is like try to compare the europe union with the mercosur from latin american...........
Also MK was the best invention of tobias. If you are talking about tao feng, for ur surprise Tobias had alot Style of fignthing game, much more than MKDA from stupid boon.

Also don´t make laugh TT, mkda was a game that tryed to follow the tobias ´s line, and also they have used alot tobias ´s ideas.
Do you want to know why mkda had more succes than Tao feng also? cause mk team has introduced new arenas with unique Enviroments/atmophere and certain details on gameplay.................. but as always those stuffs was a smokescreen for hide how mkda sucks in comparision with tao feng.

I have to admit, that part of his X-ray looks hilarious. The problem is the rest of it is generic and meh all over. They should have made it more comical, in-keeping with said slap. The same goes for the character overall -- looks decent (gaunt, very sorcerer-like), but he has an unimaginative move-set and distinctly derivative feel about him.

He just doesn't feel boss-like and I wonder how high they will push his damage / health sliders in order for him to fit the part...

keep in mind that they didn't show Shinnok very well. They skipped one of his special moves and they didn't do any "good" combos. The only cool combo they showed is in his "bone shaper" variation.

I think NRS has to make him comparable (movelist -wise )to the rest of the cast, if not he would be over powered. IF he is a Boss, he may have more moves or another form.
Now if you think there could have been more flash and pizzazz like they did Raiden(the sparks,lightning), i can understand that. His normals may use that bone staff more, we'll have to wait and see. maybe on Sat?
