I laughed at this - but honestly I agree - imho the story in MK9 and how it is played in the according mode is really well done - as I don't own a current gen console I'm thinking about picking this up for PC (in a steam sale at latest, perhaps at launch)
as a huge friday the 13th fan,i was hyped for the game ever since jason was announced.the addition of the new characters is great, but i just wanted them to add michael myers to the roster as well.jason vs michael would of been sweet.
Mortal Kombat XL owners - how are the new DLC characters?
I got the original MKX and am thinking about getting the $25 DLC upgrade bundle. But I don't really care for the horror characters to be honest...the only I think I might enjoy playing is Alien. Maybe Predator too.
And as far as the MK DLC characters, I don't know how I feel about them either. I'd love to have Goro. And Triborg looks cool. But I don't know about the others...
What else is included...DLC costumes? I already have the new pit stage, I guess I got that for free somehow.
$25 for 9 new characters seems reasonable...but would like to hear some thoughts from folks who actually play them. Yay or nay? Should I grab it?
Yeah I never played around with the crypt from the previous game either....
Let me know your thoughts EG. I am not a huge MK fan but the new game is fun. I mostly play as Kung Lao and Erron Black. I watched some vids of the new characters from XL to see who I might like to play as from the new bunch but none of them seem like standouts to me.
I played MK9 for a while, once I got the hang of Kung Lao and Raiden I was all set, super cheapness on the tag team division. Haven't played MK9 in a long time, should play it more, I thought it was great.
Funny thing, after all these years I just finally realized that Bo-Rai-Cho is a spin on Borracho, which means Drunkfuck in Spanish...thus the drunken style, lol, sometimes I'm just clueless...
MKX feels much more refined as a competitive game than MK9 IMO. Utilizing running adds a whole new depth to its combo system. What I still prefer in 9 are the stages and the fatalities (the brutalities in X partially make up for that though).
Btw, Triborg has a 4th variation which is Cyber Sub-Zero. You need to tap up twice then press start or something during variation select.
Alien is a cheap mother fucker with crazy and punishing low / overhead combos.
