SO EMBARRASSING



tin can made man posted:

I never thought I'd see an action setpiece which focused on Goro tearing apart a barn on a foggy American farmstead, but 2021 is a year of strange surprises

Imagine being a Shokan and hearing your holy prince Goro - legendary warrior and nine time champion of Mortal Kombat - got killed by some no name dude in a barn.

Well you see, because Goro was so expensive, they had to make him integral to the story, and of course "big guy in a barn" is really a role only Goro could pull off:

MK 2021 Producer Todd Garner posted:

Heís extremely integral to the plot. He is a beloved character. Heís awesome. Heís obviously somebody that I would love to have in every movie. Heís also really expensive. Not going to lie. Heís really expensive. [...] So what we did is we knew that. You know that heís expensive, you know that heís beloved, you know he has to be in the movie, and you canít just have him come in and justÖ Itís not like Indiana Jones where he comes in with two knives and you shoot him. You canít do that. Thatís no good. We had to figure out a real reason for him to be in the movie.

At least in '95 he was killed by a movie star. You'd have to explain to the Shokan what a "movie" is, but once you did that I'm sure they'd be very impressed.

Jadeís default costumes in MK11 are pretty great.
It's perversely impressive that, in a game full of scantily clad lady ninjas, they managed to make one whose gimmick is specifically "exotic Oriental stripper."

Which character? Jade looks largely normal in MK11.

Goro also goes back to his home planet and dies between MK10 and MK11. He starts the game as a mummified corpse in the Krypt.

I don't understand how people got bore-o'd for Goro but I don't like it.

I didnt grow up with Mortal Kombat, to me Goro is just the midboss/fake final guy working for Shao Khan. He's big and gets super armor, and in MK95 his nards get nuked.

That's exactly who he is. You don't need to know anything else about Goro. He's the reigning champion of Mortal Kombat and killed generations of Shaolin monks until a B-movie actor punched his balls.

Mortal Kombat Mythologies Sub Zero or whatever that lovely game was is not part of the Mortal Kombat universe. I do not accept it.

Inspired by this thread and the memory of that game I booted up the PS Classic last night and tried it out for the first time since 1997.

Jesus gently caress is this game hard. It's full of the cheapest bullshit that requires wrote memorisation of every aspect of each level, which can only be obtained by dying a lot. Even with same scumming, the difficulty is absurd. No wonder I never bought the thing after renting it one weekend.

Pity, because otherwise the bits that you fight give good glimpses at what it could have been, and I dig how it plays just like mk3.

I'm more interested in a move towards giving men the same sort of sexual expression as women receive in games (specifically, stop wearing pants at grandpa height to avoid The Devil's Belt), but its still pretty cool to see more variety in the MK women's roster than "floss bikinis" and "the MK ninjas, but sexy".

Thereís a certain segment of gay/queer men and mascs who really like Kanoís design MK11. Be mindful if you turn safe search off is what Iím saying.

They need to go back to one of Raidenís old outfits where his hair was down and he had a whole tiddy out.

Normally, I would be 100% in favour of that. Make everyone in Tekken get their dick out so Jun and Hwoarang can gently caress already. But Mortal Kombat is a game where the highlight is like disemboweling your enemy and putting their head on a stick, so it would get into weird gore fetish territory.

I'd assumed (like a fool) that Joe Taslim would have something to do with the fight choreography in this, but I was stone cold wrong; it's some dude named Chan Griffin, whose only other real notable credits are a few DC superhero movies and the latest Alien.

If there's one thing I think this movie did right, it was Kung Lao. Right from the weird-rear end teleport intro. If there's a sequel, I hope we get Revenant Kung Lao; I was never a fan of the revenant concept, I just want to see him back.

Apparently he's a Prince of some kind, too, though the particulars of Shokan monarchy has never been made clear to me.

Have it kind of lower volume during the build up and then blast the "JOHNNY CAGE IS NOT AFRAID TO DIE!" right as a fight starts.

Honestly even this movie would have been improved 10x if the Chinese Ninja Warrior and Lost Soul Bent on Revenge tracks played during the two Scorpion/Sub-Zero fights.
