If you still give two shits about MKX, they are doing a beta now, switching over there shitty netcode to a rollback style similar to Killer Instinct and Street Fighter V.
Only Scorpion and Sub-Zero are playable.
Because that's all anyone picks anyway.
Biggest reason is the online was really fucking shit.
MK9 lasted longer because it was a nostalgia wetdream so people put up with the shit netcode, or just played it offline.
Gameplay wise MKX is a far better game.
If they continue to release characters past KP2, and eventually a "GOTY"/Komplete edition, and the netcode is as good as KI, then people will stick with it.
Could have done a lot better if they didn't shit the bed at launch though.
And Jacqui and Johnny Cage.
MK9 is the same engine as MKX.
They just significantly improved it and fixed all the bugs.
The mechanics are also similar, and the games play by very similar rulesets.
They just altered some of the base mechanics, and added in a few new mechanics like running, and stage interactions.
Character balance may be off, but the gameplay is perfect. Some bugs here and there but it plays fast. Faster than MKX.
They're pretty different. MKX is more fluid but is more slower.
can't get back to western fighting vidya after playing Jap games
and I don't even mean SF or animetrash
What do you mean by "faster"?
The character movement and frames are similar between games.
The only thing I could think you mean by faster is dash canceling? IE dash cancel combos, block cancel movement, and canceling out of dashes with normals to start offense.
mkx was a lot of fun, but they ruined the tower system. the random shit just isn't as much fun as the well thought out wackier tower in mk9. you also got a much better sense of accomplishment with the mk9 tower
Armageddon really did feel different didn't it?
It could have been fun shit with KAK but the Mortal Kart minigame felt tacked on and fuck playing as Taven in Konquest Mode. And the bios were rushed/unfinished too.
Maybe should have used Kreate a Fatality for Custom Kombatant, Reused The Fatalities from DA and D characters and made new ones for returning characters.
I mean they reused stages, models/outfits and Movesets so reusing Fatalities would be a no brainer right?
I had some fun with them and I liked most of the soundtracks and the tone, especially in Deadly Alliance, but they were still a middle-of-the-road experiment by design
the best thing to come out of that period was Shaolin Monks
I understand that, a lot of people liked dash canceling in MK9.
People were pretty upset about its exclusion in Injustice, and then in MKX.
The devs straight up didn't like how it altered the meta game though, dashes ended up being far too powerful, and there was no consequence about movement. IT also looked silly.
Um its hard to say, dash speed is different between characters in each game, so its hard to really compare.
In a lot of games you don't really use dash as your main form of movement though, so it doesn't really effect the pace or speed of a game.
>you don't really use dash as your main form of movement though
That's because of walkspeed. Which makes it even more intriguing since MK walk speed and dash speed have been very slow.
Because Midway had the MK team rush the fuck outta that game so they could get money. They couldn't even finish the backstories they had for each character, so those were relegated to the Armageddon website until MK v DC was announced.
The parent company did not give a fuck about the quality due to the company slowly dying.
Kreate-A-Kharacter was extensive for them, and due to that & the amount of players, everything was gimped. Fight styles were reduced too to fit everything in
Motor Kombat was awesome for what it was though
i don't want to log in so i'm gonna post these links here
>Gameplay wise it's the best MK ever made Nah. MK9 has that shit down.
Add in the shitty story and the characters into edgy evil shits. I know this shouldn't be a issue with fighting games, but I would think the devs would have learned their lesson after turning Kabal into evil edgy terrorist man.
What's the problem
She can't give a blow job without them.
I will pick the game up when it's on sale when the new netcode is implemented.
Also, do you guys realize how much this game sold? By no means was it a failure, even if it will be rightfully overshadowed by sfv.
>The main protags were a group of young minorities and women
>gay agenda forced on one of them
>terrible personalities on all of them
>johnny cage reduced to dudebro genero
>shinnok only being a threat at the beginning and the end
I love Kenshi's son, he is just as much of dork as his father.
It's just such a hilarious contrast for me, everyone else is super try hard assholes, and those two sound and act like they go to stamp collecting conventions.
The kicker with that is it wasn't even noticeable in game outside of one quick scene. Prior to overanalysis of that scene, the character was just some asshole. Now being gay is his defining trait to the fans
I unironically love her the most in MKX simply because she's the most perfect balance of adorably deranged and bloodthirsty she has ever been.
The lips never bothered me, I could take or leave them, doesn't really matter to me. But I love the teeth on the redesign, better than her old needles.
The only ones I have a problem with are the shit guest characters and Bo Rai Cho+Tanya who are only there because Boon finds farts and vomit funny and Tanya is the name of his sister.
post more Mileena
my fap folder isn't big enough
>Not playing lackey
There's your problem
He's a huge Aztec grappler who Sacrifices people to the sun and cleanses scum with holy light. Plus from gameplay point of view Great AA grab can do strong pokes and make people guess between actually going in or just doing a command grab to scare them and keep them guessing what you are going to do.
Imo Kung Jin was the worst new character in the game right next to Cassie Burch and Jax daughterfu who I can't remember the name of atm because shes so forgettable. The only good characters were outworld residents like Erron Black and D'vorah only because they actually fit with the MK theme. The earthrealm SJWs were just pushing an agenda and have been seen many times in games before.
>Everyone hates Kotal Kahn's outfit
>Everyone either hates or doesn't remember Ogre's Alternate outfit
No sir, those days are over.
Reptile is still a qt tho
The only character that the DLC rule fucks with is Freddy, at least with him I can understand why people are so upset over it.
>SFV and KI season 3 right around the corner
>implying I will touch MKX again
at least until Triborg is released
>Tfw the other guest character for KI is gonna be lame ass Skorpion instead of something cool like Edgar from Phantom Dust or Dante from the Devil May Cry series.
>start playing the game
>try out SP mode to get accustomed to the changes and new stuff
>watching a cutscene
>characters in a FUCKING FIGHTING GAME start fighting while I have to press QTE instead of FUCKING FIGHTING BECAUSE ITS A FUCKING FIGHTING GAME
>unistall the game
Remember when anon drew this, and Sonicfox ended up bringing a blown up version of it at some tourney?
Where are the robobros and cyborgfags?
What do you think of Triborg so far?
I'm hype as fuck but I need Net & Flamethrower.
>Not bringing Fulgore in as a guest character
Fucking weak, Fulgore best robot.
QTE events don't do anything.
Literally nothing gameplay related.
If you hit them right, your character wins the cutscene, you lose them, your character gets beat up.
Thats it, it has no actual effect on anything else.
Its such a fucking weird thing.
So just because nobody makes a thread on /v/ the game is dead ok
Swap out Leatherface for him then, fuck it
keep muh triborg put
only way I can get to play as Smoke in MKX
The thread was revived for that, but of course died out real quick. It's gonna be dead as fuck until maybe KP2 is completely out or summer tournaments, but that's a stretch.
its literally going to be banjo and kazooie, i dont see how people dont see it coming at this point.
Honestly, I'm ready for them to just make the horror movie fighting game a thing already, and then just make the next MK so that we have marginally less horror film DLC.
...Who the fuck am I kidding?
That's a funny joke
I would want to see how the Terrordrome devs react to that too
Fucking never, we arent even getting new costumes in KP2, just the old ones that were sold stand alone or pre-order exclusive
On second thought though, it would be interesting to have Sabreman
The online was god awful and some of the DLC characters were broken at launch.
ITs online functions were less then quality.
They want to change that.
Doing a beta test for a new function of the game, after that, they will patch it into the game proper.
People caring more about >MUH LORE than actually playing the game is what fucking killed it. Literally ZERO matchmaking was happening in it. For people who cared about the game, absolutely nobody cared about it.
>GGPO is made on PC
>devs start using it on consoles
>PC version of the game doesn't get it
>the architect of Mileena's awakening
but then WHO WAS PHONE?
Nobody plays anymore on /vg/ because the threads turned in to everything EXCEPT playing the game. I can get games fine by going in to lobbies or asking on TYM, 4chan is the only dead place for it.
>Revenant Characters don't have Uncorrupted 2Ps
I fucking love MK's aesthetics.
same here man
this one is probably my favorite
While I like how they managed to get all three into the game this way, I kind of hate we won't have legit Cyrax, Smoke, or Sektor talking to the other characters in the intros.
It's basically an empty mannequin.
I can get around the worse models (maybe I'm imagining things) on consoles, but can you turn the bloom off on consoles? jesus christ
>Perfect MK9 Sektor and Cyrax Helmets and Lights
>Smoke has Red Lights along with Black/Dark Purple colors
Fuck I want them now they look so goddamned cool.
I hope that 1 Skin Pack rumor is proven false and Sub-Zero gets this back.
who does that?
I remember... Jax? going "poor man's Liu Kang!" midfight I think, but not in the intro (against Kung Lao), I think probably between rounds, when he beats him
I think Kitana claims that Kung Lao 'lives in Liu Kang's shadow', and Jacqui has one that's like:
Jacqui: I don't fear you.
Kung Lao: How could I change your mind?
Jacqui: If you're name were Liu Kang.

I wonder if it emulates well
i don't know how KI handles it, but i hate the rollback netcode in SFV
the worst is when i'm playing against a laggy ryu or something and then he activates denjin and then starts shooting fireballs at me from fullscreen and the fireballs are just going backwards and forwards and its so fucking disorientating
I have some I forgot the tumblr and I don't want to get band again
>implying I like dead chicks
>implying I like chicks at all
one gay character means forcing agenda.
Not that anon, but is Ue3 good at anything in particular?
The best example is Bioshock 2, even Gow quality declined as more stuff was rendered by the engine. GoW2 pop up issues were insane.
Not sure if render is the right word
>punchable face and chin
>that ridiculous nose
>that ridiculous circlet/helmet thing
the only thing memorable about him was being gay
Jacqui is also boring as fuck, at least Cassie and Takeda are cool
too bad the coolest Takeda variation is the worst
Wait, is Kung Jin actually gay?
Also, anyone else here disappointed in how the storymode was trying to be way more "realistic"? I miss the over the top bullshit from the previous games. Deception's story mode was exceptional.
UE3 is good at being user friendly, easy to use and having a lot of premade assets already built into it. That's why there were so many games using it, that's why id Tech 4 (or was it 5) could never compete with it.
>edgy terrorist man
...He was a cop, though.
Granted, Kabal was kind of a morally grey cop.
...If Stryker ever comes back to life, he'll never be able to live with what he was forced to do.
>Not liking the hotheaded Asshole
>not enjoying when KJ called Jacqui "The Zombie's Daughter"
>Not using Shadow skin which fixes the other two problems
Agreed on his first costume/helmet and Jacqui, Bitch is dull.
Yeah, Raiden told Kung Jin to join the Shaolin. Kung Jin claimed they wouldn't accept him, to which Raiden replied, "The Shaolin only cares what's in your heart, not whom your heart longs for."
When asked, majority of writers and developers confirmed that Kung Jin is, indeed, homosexual.
And no. I wasn't upset by how 'realistic' it was. I was much more annoyed by how dumb some people were.
Johnny Cage is a likeable hotheaded asshole, Kung Jin is the scrappy doo of Mortal Kombat
I love MK9 but believe me, it's not
>meter drain glitch
>smoke parry glitch
>player 1 advantage
>random block advantage on a few strings
MKX fixed a lot problems and created a few new ones
I'd give that to Frost actually. At least KJ has reasons and motive to be a hotheaded asshole and gets his shit together and starts being more cooperative towards the team.
Yes. It's sort of a glitch though.
Originally it was supposed to be random, every other frame would change who has the advantage for trades, but the bug made it so player 1 always had the advantage.
Originally it was a design choice that they used in all there games as someone there didn't like trading hits.
They got so much shit for the bug they just said fuck it and let trades happen.
>gets his shit together and starts being more cooperative towards the team.
I really don't recall that
and why are we posting Livewire now?
being serious for a second though, I loved the moment Hanzo came to Sub Zero and she attacked him, and Sub just made her instantly chill
>Dairou kills himself using one of Havik's moves
Never noticed that before
Frost has no relation to any of the Sub-Zeros. She's just a young woman who manages to have ice powers. Apparently, random people are born with these powers.
Bi-Han (the first Sub-Zero who died and became Noob Saibot) and Kuai Liang (current Sub-Zero and the most popular one) are brothers. That's it. No further family relations, even when previous Sub-Zeros existed before them.
Frost is simply Kuai Liang's apprentice. No relation.
Give it to me straight, doc.
Is he going to be DLC?
>mfw I unironically liked that movie
>mfw the director is a convicted pedophile
She stubborn and selfish.
In the original timeline, she betrayed Sub-Zero because she wanted to become all powerful. However, he betrayal led to her becoming frozen solid by an ancient artifact. Sub-Zero, being dope as he is, took her frozen body and kept it in safety, hoping she'll one day return and he can forgive her. Sadly, she does return, and she joins the darkside.
In the reboot, she's just a punk. Bark way louder than her bite, as she got her ass kicked by Cassie in a cage fight. Her attacking Hanzo/Scorpion was purely because 'Lin Kuei hate Shirai Ryu', when Sub-Zero was trying to end that rivalry.
I fucking hope not, they need to stop with the feature characters and bring back actual MK characters.
Where the fuck is Fujin? Is he not meant to show up in the MK4/Shinnok story line?
also I really, really want Hotaru
>That blatant Ancient Ogre rip off
>ogre invented native south american aesthetic
He's from a species from Outworld, but his father thought he was being a fuck and sent him to Earthrealm. There, he found the Mayans, and basically helped establish their culture.
Yeah but Kotal is still alive and kicking unlike Ogre who can only return in non-canon Tekken games.
I'm disappointed at the lack of Kotal and Ogre doing..anything together really.
the hair really ruined the alternate costume, fuck
ON YOUR KNEES
Kotal's Alt should have been established it's War Paint instead of his default....and they should have went with a deep Red.
I think those are nose-piercing-bones-thingies, like, like indians use or something
>not making your friends fucking huff and puff black smoke out of sheer anger because you caught them again with the command grab

>mfw Vomit is back
>mfw EXBelly Bash has him fart on you
All I saw was Farts and Vomit Variation and Jojutsu Variation
Was there a third one shown?
>Nobody plays anymore on /vg/ because the threads turned in to everything EXCEPT playing the game.
Which thread are you talking about? You just described everything on that board.
what were the issues on the PC version? all I ever heard was some people not being able to boot the game on release, and Tanya having an infinite on PC
>tfw always find a lobby with over 20 people on it every weekend
I have no idea how or why, but I'm always glad
>Was there a third one shown?
My guess is when he grabbed the guy and jumped high into the air is an acrobatic variation. Because a big fat guy jumping around like a gymnast in Advent Children is "funny".
Jax was cool token black Jacqui is a just a female token black, personality wise she's just a more serious Cassie while having a grudge against Ermac and maybe falling for Takeda. She's just so bland
