Re: Official TRMK E3 Questions Thread

Lmao Well, Mileena is understandable and also Skarlet somewhat, but the others DO need a major outfit overhaul...

Mileena and Skarlet is not understandable. There's nothing about their character that says "She clearly should dress slutty."

Mileena using her body as a weapon is kind of a fan created defense for her (lack of) wardrobe.

I mean, just about every female character has been trashed up in these games. The most unforgiving offense being Sonya in Mk9.

It needs to stop. Sexy is one thing... Trashy is another. Mileena had just enough clothing to cover her nips and vagina. Her legs and arms were more covered than her body was.

F*** the perverts! I don't play MK to see soft-core porn. Keep that crap out of the games.

Hey, I agree. Its insulting that they think I need the slut factor to fully enjoy their game. Tell this to NRS.

:laugh:
Of course not.
This is NRS we're talking about.
Ed would sacrifice his own child before he'd ever let the NRS mascot lose to Sub-Zero.

Atleast during the Deception promo's, Sub-Zero killed Baraka.. but never Scorpion yet.

Letting Scorpion win for MK promos is nothing new. Scorpion is the face of MK. That's something we all need to deal with. lol

Re: Official TRMK E3 Questions Thread

Are bosses going to be playable?

I really hope not.
If Shinnok is the Final Boss, then he should be unplayable and hard as f*** to beat.
Same goes for Kintaro and Goro, if they return.
Bosses are supposed to be these hard fighting people, who use cheap tactics to win, and are supremely over-powered.
(i.e. - 53% X-Rays in MK9)

If they are playable, then they should be banned online and only playable offline.

I agree, this is why I believe it should be asked, but like MK9 I think they're going to do the same thing... I hope.

Problem is that I've seen too many people WANTING playable bosses to happen. I always say that having playable bosses loses the purpose of what they are supposed to be.

I don't want to fight as a boss and know every single tactic they're going to use against me (with added boss stuff like the shield and stone skin or whatever). But there are some who tend to think that as long as they are balanced with the other characters, it should be fine.

No, sorry, bosses should not be balanced to fit in with the remainder of the cast just so that they can be playable. Bosses and sub-bosses shouldn't be playable.


And I never cared for Shinnok being playable in the fourth, I thought he was a painfully dreadful, boring character.

I don't mind "Boss" characters being playable, as long as they're not the Boss/Sub-Boss of the specific game. MK:D for Gamecube did it properly, as Goro and Shao Kahn were neither sub-boss or Boss, and were not the crazy overpowered douche bags that they were in the original trilogy. Same with Armageddon, although Blaze being unplayable would defeat the purpose of the game. But yeah, if Shinnok is indeed the Boss for MK10, he should NOT be playable, should be overpowered and cheap, and make you want to break your controller.

You know what I would love? If Shao Khan returned and was a playable character but he isnt the boss and thus does normal damage. Kinda like how Shang Tsung became playable in MK2.

Exactly what I mentioned in the post above. Although I can't see Shao Kahn as strong as a normal playable character, they should go the Gamecube route like I said, and make him a bit stronger, albeit slower and less combo oriented.

As you said, though, never against Scorpion.
It'll be a cold day in hell before Sub-Zero ever defeats Scorpion in any promo.

Yes, but quite honestly, it's down right f***ing tiring and it doesn't mean that we have to like it.

MK9 cinematic trailer; Scorpion kills Sub-Zero
MK9 Kollector's Edition Bookends; Scorpion kills Sub-Zero.
MK9 start up screen; Scorpion defeats Sub-Zero.
Injustice intro; Scorpion is about to kill Sub-Zero.
MK X cinematic trailer; Scorpion kills Sub-Zero.

How about regular Shinnok as a playable character/sub-boss (a la Shang Tsung in MKII) and he transforms into a devil as his Final Boss form. Obviously, Devil Shinnok would be unplayable...

Re: Official TRMK E3 Questions Thread

Not gonna lie, I am getting sick of it as well. Probably not because I'm sick of seeing Scorpion win all the time, I'm sick of seeing my second favourite character always getting his ass beat.

Stupid idea but anyone think Sareena could be a sub boss? Her true form is a giant hideous demon
