I had fallen asleep and my husband had put this on and woke me up, due to the rumor of MK11 being announced. So I got up just in time to see Ed Boon "give" the award for best sports game, which I immediately complained was lame. Then they cut to the trailer. Looks great. I pre-ordered the special edition this morning.

The music choice was awful, but the fight was great!

So I see the "Premium Edition" for $100 ... no images though. Google, didn't find much. Pre-bought for now though.

MKX had two different badass Scorpion CE figures. Hope they do something better for XI!

Yeah I figure if I don't like what the Premium edition has, I'll cancel and get a regular version. I think for now they're just saying "Kombat Pack" which I am not sure what that means, maybe extra characters, or future DLC.

Wait, so is the point to physically damage your opponent by mutilating limbs and such until they can no longer fight?

"Tis merely a flesh wound"

Interesting concept if so, but no in game shown.

I hope it's even half as good as the trailer was.

That concept sounds a lot like Tao Feng: Fist of the Lotus for the OG Xbox. If you blocked too many upper body attacks with your arms then your arms would take damage and after a while your arms would break. If you blocked too many attacks with your legs then your legs would eventually break. I remember it being a pretty decent fighting game back in the day and was developed by John Tobias, Joshua Tsui, and David Michicich after they left Midway.

I'm hoping the Switch version isn't dumbed down in some way because that's probably where I'll play it.

Not related to MK11, but is XL worth of picking it up? It has been years since I played an MK title, but I've been looking for a new fighter to play with my brother and I've been considering XL.

Absolutely. The XL version includes all the DLC fighters. It is a solid game for sure.

Nice, I'll track down a copy.

I also want to try Injustice and pick Tekken 7. I have been slacking this generation when it comes up to fighters! Shame on me.

Not the most popular characters that's for sure. But it might be nice to see updated versions of a few.

I'm mostly just upset that Michael Myers isn't listed. Hyped for Ash and Spawn though.

Mine is still sitting unopened. Trying to finish Sekiro first. Anyone else playing? Thoughts?

Fighting feels good. Brutalities lost a little luster this time around but they're still fun to do. Everything is as gruesome as ever. The grind for unlockables is way too steep and there's way too many of them to begin with so that part is a pain point. There's no need for 3 types of in game currency. Towers can be really hard but that's largely subjective. AI is as much a rubber band as ever. Micro transactions are borderline disgusting.

It's an 8.5 game to me. I never thought in 2019 I'd be sitting in my bedroom listening to Metallica and playing Mortal Kombat... but here I am.

Mine is also unopened. Mainly because we were out of town when it released and came home and immediately fell ill with some horrible virus. Hoping to get into it this weekend, but I just don't have the hype for it anymore. Micro transactions? Where do those appear? I think many games are going this route. no

You can buy skins and items and one of the three currencies with real money. Then you can buy a character you unlock in story mode if you don't want to play through the story mode. I'm of the opinion that most micro transactions are disgusting and these are no exception.

Started it last night. It's more of the same, but great to see a continuation of the story. I usually suck with Jade but I'm getting good with her and Skarlet.

Kronika has the best fatality in the history of Mortal Kombat. Though it is getting a bit old seeing it over and over again.

Also if you use the PS4 sleep function in the hopes of coming back to a tower battle (like I did earlier instead of shutting down) it will kick you out of it because "server unavailable" even though it's supposed to be offline play. Sort of annoying.

Have not started the story mode yet, I think my husband will do that tonight while I do my weekly L4D2 group play and I'll try to complete it next week maybe.

I haven't done the sleep mode to return to a tower thing but I do know a lot of towers are timed. Are you having that problem with every tower?

Even if timed I thought sleeping my console paused everything. This was just the shortest Klassic tower.

Occasionally the audio cuts out sometimes too, seems weird.
