    I definitely like Shang Tsung, but his actor is what really sells it. Just perfect casting of Cary Tagawa.

    Not too happy that it basically confirms the DLC leak. I mean we got characters outright missing from the roster like Reptile, Ermac, Rain, Smoke, and here they are as moves for Shang Tsung to transform into. Neatherrealm, that's not what people meant by making them playable. And then you got characters like Sektor and Cyrax who are playable, but locked off to the player. And on top of that, the leak lists the likes of Spawn (confirmed), Joker, Ash, and the Terminator. Really? Not Millena or Quan Chi?

    Hopefully the leaks aren't 100% legit, but I would think MK characters would get priority.

    Honestly I'm not expecting any missing MKX character that was playable to be DLC. If they're not already on the base roster, then they're most likely sitting this one out.

    I think people are exaggerating how much of a presence the ninjas have in Shang Tsung's moveset. Him using one recycled move of theirs from the past games isn't really comparable to making an actual playable character.

    Same deal. They're just stripped-down versions of Triborg with a fraction of the moves, no fatal blows, no fatalities, no variations, no intros, no victory poses and recycled animations from the last game. They're, "locked off" because they're not even close to being actual characters. Same reason any other NPC/boss character in another other game is locked off.

    I find myself having to repeat myself to people that making those characters into fully playable ones isn't easy as pressing a button like they make it seem. People did the same with Baraka, Sindel and Rain in MKX. Claiming that they had full movesets when their movesets in the story were just simply their MK9 moves.

    I'm not saying that it's easy to just flip a switch and make a character. The problem I have with Cyrax and Sektor (and the NPC fighters as a whole) was that they are playable, they just aren't done.

    Neatherrealm went through all the effort of optimizing a character (even with an older kit) and making a new model and tweaking animations if only for the character to sit unused when Ash from Evil Dead will get a complete kit. The character they wholesale own who is now optimized for MK11 will do nothing but collect digital dust in an unfinished state whereas they stuck more effort into the guest characters all over again.

    Having Cary's likeness and voice for a rejuvenated Shang Tsung is pretty darn awesome. The morphs into klassic ninjas is a neat enough feature.

    That Kintaro fatality is pretty out there, though. Not even sure what he did there? Did he place Kintaro's soul in the body of Raiden and then make him form his own body from within?
    Take my dreams, childish and weak at the seams

    The best I can figure is that he spawned a new body for Kintaro out of the victim's genetic material. Think of it as the mystical equivalent of a chestbuster. I think it's some kind of reference to the movie when Shang Tsung summoned some of the warriors whose souls he'd stolen in his fight against Liu Kang.

    Tsung in this game just seems to be all about referencing other characters. His moveset involves changing into other characters, his intro has him manifesting a green skull like the ones Quan Chi creates and his fatality has him resurrect Kintaro.

    Just uninstalled this game and I'm never buying another one. Tried to play a Tower of Time fight. The AI used an overhead attack, the assist a low. No way to block both and then I was juggled, uncontrollably between the AI enemy, the assist and the modifier weapon until my health was gone. 100 to 0, and literally nothing I could do about it. Figured it was bad luck, hit retry. The exact same thing happened 3 more times. It's not that I missed a block, or was missing frame timings. It's not that I missed a read and got punished. The very first attack of the round is completely unblockable, both a low and an overhead simultaneously, and then I never even get control of my fighter back until the CPU has done it's fatality and put me back to menu.

    Whoever designed this mess should straight never be allowed to develop games again. Put them in janitorial services where they belong. I'm glad I didn't bother buying DLC.

    Kombat League is cool but I wish the character selection for the opponent had more options than just Scorpion. I guess some people have their games bugged and they can only pick Scorpion and I keep being matched with them.

    I don't mind the endless sea of Scorpions. The bad ones will heavily rely on teleport which makes it easy to blow them up.
