Cool, if true. And it kind of makes sense.

What was their justification for charging 70 bucks on the switch in the first place?

Is this easy for a beginner to get into? I’ve played them in the way past, but not since. I think all those moves and button presses seems so daunting to remember. But, I saw a review and it quite intrigued me. Is this like a typical button masher game?

Gamepass has the previous one, MK 11 basic edition, for free, try it out.

New one plays a little different. But close enough.
The game has a nice brief tutorial .

I had a $100 Amazon gc so I got the digital deluxe version for XBSX. I said fuck it. I didn’t have any fighting games and I used to love this as a kid. Certainly looks gorgeous. I’m sure I’ll get my moneys worth before I inevitably pack it in.

Considering this is the 30th anniversary I'm shocked there hasn't been an Anthology collection Port of MK1-3 and Ultimate MK3

So uh, this doesn't look that good to me. Aside from Havik (he's disgusting, I love it) I'm not interested in a lot of the other fighters - even the first dlc characters don't excite me.

It just doesn't look that much different and I've NEVER liked any fonthe story modes.

Sad but I may pass on this one.

I caved. I am enjoying the heck out of it, it is fantastic. I bought MK11 for like seven bucks so that one is next but I wanted to play the pretty new one first.

I read on a forum how to cheese the test your might after failing many many times.
Spoiler:
They said use a battery but I'm using a glue stick. Works like a charm, just roll it on the controllers, hit it the first time every time!




I'm about 40% done with the game. Having the time of my life with it. This is my first MK game (other than 45 mins of tutorial in MK 11).

This is also like one of the best martial arts movies I've ever seen, I got an itch now to go watch a bunch of them.

Such a good story too. I am definitely doing a second playthrough right after the first one. I've never played another one but I get a sense of the series and I think fans will find this a worthy entry.

Definitely will wait for this to drop in price or on Gamepass. I remember buying 11 when it was $30 for the Ultimate Edition.

I see in settings to turn screen reader on and off, but no matter which I do, the damn screen reader reads all the menus and dialogue associated with it. How do you turn that off?

Maybe you have the PS5/Xbox main console setting for it on.

I’m on Xbox with it. And, I turned screen reader to off in game, but it still talks every menu. I def don’t have on main settings bc no other game talks the menus.

Stumbled upon this DIY arcade cabinet build video just now.

I named one of my bikes Bertha. A car hit me while riding it and I survived. I miss her, she took the hit for me.

That video is interesting but would be much better tightly edited down to about 20 minutes or so for the average YouTube consumer. Leave a lot of the little conversation and chuckle moments out. I do enjoy this longer version though.
