    Fatal Blows can only be used once per match so if you get hit by one in the first round your opponent cannot use it again in the second or third round. If a Fatal Blow missed completely it can be used again in that same round after a short cool down. Personally I think if you miss you miss, tough luck but we'll see how it plays out once people discover how to play and manage it correctly.

    It's not actually gonna cost anyone that much though, is it? You earn those Krypt currencies through playing the game anyway and the majority of the unlocks are inconsequential nonsense. The actual game itself plays brilliantly, almost certainly the best a Mortal Kombat game ever has. Buying the game isn't supporting microtransactions; paying money for those currencies is.

    It's definitely worth it at that price if you enjoy mashing through some single player stuff. The story is nonsense of course but it's decent enough fun and there's some excellent guest characters (all are included with XL). Still looks good as well, despite being a few years old now.

    Haven't the guest characters for this game already leaked? Or was that leak debunked?

    Completed the tutorials as well as the character lessons (except Frost as I'm yet to unlock them). Decent stuff though pretty lacking compared to Skullgirls or the recent Guilty Gear games in terms of checking for understanding. A cut above most games in the genre all the same. A couple of the character lessons have errors though, namely Jax's Gotcha Grab and Kollector's Demonic Mace Desh Cancel. Even the demonstration performs those incorrectly. Experimenting with other button combos got me through Jax's while Kollector's mace needs to be cancelled with a crouch, not a dash. Those minor issues aside this is a massive improvement over MKXL, which I've been playing a far bit recently to prep. Gonna get stuck into the Story Mode this morning before work! As always I am terrified to actually play online. Gonna enter a tournament in Glasgow in a couple of weeks to help me learn.

    This unlocked on PSN at midnight so I've had a quick blast through the tutorials before bed. It's a lot of information to take in but it already feels better to play than XL. Still having trouble adjusting to the combo timings but the krushing blow stuff seems real fun. Can't wait to feel like I've done one deliberately some time. Had a nosey round the Krypt for a moment; framerate is less solid in there, then hopped out to see if there's an option to invert the Krypt y-axis camera (there is!). I'll give the story mode a wee go in the morning. Pretty good stuff so far though!

    The grind is just cosmetic stuff though, right? I don't think that's gonna bother me much if so.

    Nintendo Switch

    Street Fighter V sold pretty poorly for the series thanks to its bare bones launch (no arcade mode or real single player modes) and exclusivity to Playstation/PC. With MK11 Mortal Kombat will likely overtake SF to be the third biggest fighting game franchise, behind Smash Bros and Tekken.

    Yes they do. I hate it but I doubt it will ever change.

    Nintendo Switch

    Mortal Kombat X was a lot of fun, as was 9. They were huuuuge improvements over the older games in the series plus the presentation and solo content is unparalleled in the genre. MK11 looks to be greatly improved on all fronts, including the oft-criticised animations. Footage of the Switch version has looked pretty impressive so far too.

    The first one is by far the worst one

    I massively prefer Super Mario Bros over USA2 or The Lost Levels. I don't know if any of them could be considered "by far" the worst though. Unless the original Mario Bros counts?

    Two of the rumoured guest characters sound absolutely perfect so I hope that leak is true. I ended up getting it digitally on PS4 so I'll have to wait until Tuesday to get stuck in. Very much looking forward to it though.

    I know the game is difficult and everyone has their own way of coping with the frustration but that's too much information.

    I am incredibly jealous of that setup.

    Played through five of the bosses and a couple of run n gun in co-op with my wife. I was worried it might be too difficult but the flustered moments of deaths saved by panicked parry revivals were delightful. Hollering at the telly. It looks absolutely amazing; I didn't know about the equipment customisation stuff so I mistakenly though the shop was selling consumables. The invincible dash feels essential at the moment. Sometimes the collisions can feel a wee bit off; not unfairly so but in the platformer stages for example, it can be hard to judge where holes in the ground start and end. A couple of bosses' deaths were unceremoniously abrupt and it's a bit unclear whether or not I'm doing any damage during their phase transitions but, uh, that's about it for the negatives. It's superb.
