Mortal Kombat 1 General Discussion Media Thread

Welcome back, let's run some sets soon haha. I've been using Reiko in KL and it's been working out for me, maybe only cause most don't know the match up.
What's good broski, glad to see you're still getting it in. I'm still trying to figure everything out so I'm not worth fighting against but I'm down to run some sets in the future.

I might pick up Reiko after I get comfortable with Li Mei.

I'm still playing story mode and have a little bit to go before it's done. Megan Fox's voice acting .......if you even want to call it that lol. She sounds so bored to be there lmao. All the other voice actors do a great job with what they are given. I'm enjoying it and the rest of the game so far. I'm still trying to get my bearings with Mileena together though. I did laugh at lord Brady already asking for Subzero buffs lol. It like MKX all over again. Hopefully this game will have a better shelf life with the FGC than MK11. I never want to go through those dark times again.
 
Yeah, hearing Megan Fox's performance really makes you appreciate the talent of actual voice actors. Her candance is so rigid and unnatural. Her design looks good tho.
 
Dude I loved the story so much. It was stupid, it was inconsistent, but above all else it was fun. This story didn't take itself too seriously and I am so god damned happy about that. It was dumb fun through and through.

The part at the end where you choose your titan? That was unbelievably hype for me lmao.
Story was decent until Chapter 13, to be fair.
Chapter 14~15 legit gave mea good laugh, though, and not in the good way.
It was more in the "Are you fucking kidding me?" type of way.
Seriously?

Chapter 15
Spoiler:

Quantum Chi?
Frostbite?
Johnny Savage?

NRS can get the fuck outta here with that Kreate-A-Fighter Easter egg nonsense :rolleyes:

Quan-Zero in the end credits too.
My eyes have never rolled so far into the back of my head in an "I can't believe this shit" motion before.

Also, literally Armageddon 2.0...... How fucking original, NRS!

Dude Invasions is insanely slow paced. Its brutal as fuck because every single, EVERY SINGLE, fight in Invasions has super armored opponents. Also when you die in a tower, you start from the beginning.
Invasions can be quicker paced and you can get more XP for characters and kameos if you put like 70 "Attack" points and 50 "Specials" points on all of your characters, got to one of those "3 enemies" fights and just uppercut and / or get a kameo that Teleports and just spam uppercuts and finish with a Brutality.
It's not that fun to do, but it's a sure as shit way to get your character and kameo leveled up quicker, which means unlocking kameo Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Kung Lao, Shujinko and Motaro quicker.

I've only played since the 19th and I already have my Sareena kameo to like level 7 and like 4 main characters to level 14 (to unlock the 2nd Fatality) by having the "Not Junk" Talisman and spamming uppercut / Brutality & Flawless Victory of those 3 person fights.
It's the only way to quickly unlock Brutalities for all of your characters, at the moment, but thankfully you CAN cheese it.

LEGIT..............The ONLY reason I'm really bothering with Invasions is because it's the quickest way to get kameo Brutalities (unlocked at level 2 and level 11 for each kameo) and the goddamn 2nd Fatalities for all characters (which should be unlocked once you perform them, like in MKX and MK11).
Otherwise, no sadly Invasions is not that fun at all.
I haven't gotten to the Invasion Boss / Scorpion Mesa yet so maybe that will change, but at this point I'm not holding my breath for it.
The only thing I see myself coming back to Invasions for is the special season Invasion and to unlock the special skins for those 6 weeks, as once I've got all of the roster characters to level 14 and the kameos all to level 11......"This one goes to 11" (lol)......... my interest in it will quickly dwindle for this mode.

The actual in-game fighting mechanic and Towers is really the only solid thing that's keeping me invested.

Sareena has been a terror online. Everyone uses her for combos and safety, but I found some niiiiiiice tech against her

 
Finally finished the story mode.
Spoiler:
The whole Armageddon thing was beyond stupid imo. The post credit scene with Lord Havik walking around complaining about missing the action was dumb. I always thought Onaga was going to be teased as sequel bait but nope.....I enjoyed the story up until Shang from MK11 reappeared than it just went off the rails for me.
 
....This costume, is CRIMINAL

Which is why these colors only make sense (imo) for that Invasion boss character.
Fire colored Sub-Zero (for example) just doesn't look right.
That Invasion Boss skin for Scorpion looks better than his default, though, imo.
 
Shao's red hooded story costume is in Kombat League as the Grand Master reward. Thats what I'm grinding for
 
I feel like I am going crazy in this forum. There is this Bradley Abbott Turner, that keeps flashing for me. I feel like I am having hallucinations. It feels like you're talking to him here, but then wake up next day and find out, that he never existed! No messages or anything!

It's like a phantom! Is this forum haunted or something?
 
^ No. Mutants with a buzzcut is not my thing.

Anyways looks like MK1 is indeed like MK9... They've brought back Player 1 advantage, and made it a 100 times worse.

4 years of hardcore AAA Unreal Engine 3+++ development. We totally spent the most amount of time on this game, you guys! Ed Boon never lies through his teeth!.....

Eddy once again on Twitter yelling about "This game is going to be the longest supported!!!111"...yeah right Eddie, just like MKX PC port was "as good as consoles" , with MK1 port somehow being worse than that... WB tells you to move on, and you'll move on.

I'm glad I didn't pre-order this piece of shit. It's the same story with NRS games: gotta wait for the Komplete Edition with at least 50% discount, because that's exactly what it's worth.

Looks like I'm still going to stick with MK9 for a while...

Its easily the buggiest MK game since Gold. There's glitches in every department. Graphical, sound, gameplay, progression, UI. The game is super fucking fun, but damn this shit is flat out broken lol.
 
Ha! Obviously I meant BEFORE the transformation. Although, I'm sure some guys are into to the mutant version as well. To each their own.

This game is buggy? Only bug I can across was halfway into the story, the audio became out of sync during a cutscene. Haven't seen anything else. I'm on the PS5. I heard the Switch version is ridiculously bad. Whoever thought that was a good idea needs to be fired.
