I still recall playing the first Mortal Kombat on my Sega Genesis in 1992. It was my first introduction to a fighting game, but also my first introduction to my father and I spewing trash talk at each other. An introduction to Mortal Kombat also resulted in me playing just about every other fighting game out there, such as Virtual Fighter, Tekken, Street Fighter, Killer Instinct, Soul Caliber, and even Clay Fighter. In high school, my friends and I played Tekken Tag Tournament so much that we even burnt out the disc!
Mortal Kombat X is the most recent iteration of the brutal Mortal Kombat series. In Mortal Kombat X, you will kollect koins to unlock Fatalities in the Krypt. Don’t worry–this new iteration still puts the letter ‘K’ in front of every word possible. It’s good to know some things will never change, huh?
All joking aside, the game is very well done. Movement and kombos feel smooth, and the animation transition well between moves. It also doesn’t hurt that the graphics are outstanding. Of course, fatalities and brutalities still exist, and still make you cringe in empathic pain.
Still playing the Witcher 3, three weeks later, and I still feel like I have a long way to go until the end. I haven’t had a game last me so long since Skyrim. The amount of content in this game is just astronomical. If you really want, you don’t have to engage with all the content, and you can finish the game much quicker. However, even the secondary quests and objectives are so engaging, I just feel the urge to do everything! If you’ve been craving a big, open-world RPG, this will be the best one you play for quite a while. I may even play the game all over again once both of the expansions are out, which should be sometime in early 2016.
