A reminder that Mortal Kombat 11's pre order price on Steam is R355 just in case the price increases after release.

Sad as it is, I've already requested a refund on this :(

I should've known better than to pre-order a game.

Apparently there is supposed to be a patch to fix up the Krypt issue where its a sort of a grind and the different currencies required.

How are the graphics though? i have seen a few negative reviews mentioning the graphics looks like its an xbox 360 port...worse than MK X. I was thinking of pre-ordering this but decided against it after reading up the MK X debacle. The price for the premium version is far cheaper than the console standard edition of the game.

Just requested a refund myself. Not going to support a game that is 100% tailored for monetization.

They actually have tower modifiers in the towers that make the screen go black, making fights higher in the ladder near impossible to win unless you have actually grinded / spent money on character buffs or you have to spend "koins" for skip tokens. WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK.

And as per the video I posted above, it was probably released like that on purpose so that they can "fix" it and make it SLIGHTLY LESS BAD.

Man I am fucking tired of these studios and publishers. Indie is the way to go these days. Or just plain non-monetized singleplayer games which unfortunately are far and few between.

I think it looks awesome compared to previous versions.

So I'm confused? That's kind of how the Krypt in MKX worked? Why the problem now?

And it's just been Injustice 2'd now since well....it's Netherrealms?

Honestly it still sounds fun. I'll never go all the way. But maybe a couple of playthroughs, learn a handful of chars, and then do the daily's for a few weeks. It was all pretty fun in X and I expect it be the same in 11. And that's good enough. And heck, it's more than fighting games offered from a few years ago. I still play X now and again, still don't have the entire Krypt, still don't care....well I used to play it...I'll have 11 now.


That is if I ever get the download done whilst Telkom keeps my fibre locked at 4meg cuz they're morons.

I'm currently enjoying it a ton.... But that's me. My expectations were very low, I'm not disappointed at all so far. Anyone wanna play, let me know.
Same here i am enjoying it quite a bit however i never take these type of games that serious and would never dabble in all that Krypt nonsense. Just casual online play or rather "Kasual". However i do feel it doesnt look as good as MKX especially turned all the way up there`s a lot of blurriness and weird ghosting going on (Look at Kanos beard and chest hair ) but it seems to be the TAA causing that if what i read is to be believed, for R355 im a happy camper.

I thought that fatality you did would do more damage to this prick and leave him/her in a situation where you could end it !

It was a Fatal Attack, not Fatality. Like an X-Ray attack in previous installments.

@durimotara is no push over in this game lol... But in my defense Im still learning haha....

That's not what getting owned looks like. Getting owned would be your opponent getting two perfects or damn close to that.

The main weakness seems to be you don't know your own attack range and love jumping into the air to close distance and getting punished for it.

Also corners are not your friend, in any fighting gave ever. If presented with the opportunity to get out always do so, don't take a breather and wait for your opponent to get up again.

My download finally completed.

I may be fucked though when it comes how good I am in the game since I didn't see Kenshi or Takeda anywhere in that roster from the game you two played, my two best chars from MKX gone. Gonna have to start over as a noob myself basically.

Yeah they arent in this one, i really enjoyed Takeda myself on MKX. The pace of this game is very different to MKX and it takes some getting used to. There is also no more running which allowed for some good pressure on your opponent. Dashes have been added to fix that but last i checked they were too slow.

Also finding it hard to string some decent combos together (other than Scorpion) .I`m getting there with Lui Kang.

I played against a pretty good Noob Saibot last night and you are correct he has some good tools. will try him out tonight. Have you been playing?
Negative. Refunded the game before even installing it. I'll consider buying it again if they address the micro-transactions, the excessive grinding and the towers of time modifiers.
