@gearsol: I'm no authority on Millia but sure. If you want I can do some online training with you and show you some of her combos and basic game plan. Do you have skype or a mic on PSN? It would be a much more beneficial training session if I could communicate with you somehow.
GGs to everyone that came out! Fun matches against @SuddenBlackout It was interesting playing against a different style of May from what I'm used to. You're a good player and I hope to see you back in the future. Every Sunday the gospel of Xrd will be in session and all are welcome. Praise be.
@shatteringlast: I'm not sure of all the online modes yet. I do know King of the Hill lobbies will be back and you can do practice mode while waiting for your turn. I hope password locked rooms are back so I can do that and post the info here in the future.
Wow, good to see lots of interest in MKX here. I'll definitely look into setting up some casual GB sessions throughout the week and posting the info here. I hope the online and lobby system works well.
I played Shang Tsung, Sindel and a bit of Mileena when I was into MK9. In MKX I plan to play Mileena at the start. Shinnok looks cool (never thought I would say that.) Some of his variations remind me of Shang Tsung. Of course I'll check out Predator and maybe some other characters. This game has a ton of characters out the gate and with each having 3 variations the options for creativity seem really interesting.
One thing I still think MK does better than any other FGs is single player modes and story. In any other FG I usually jump straight into training mode and netplay but with MK9 and now MKX I can see myself enjoying a lot of the single player content.
With Mortal Kombat X out next week I thought this would be a good opportunity to gauge Giant Bomb's interest in it. If you're picking up a copy next week post your PSN ID/region and I'll keep track of everyone here. I'll try and set up some community casual sessions in the future also.
Feel free to talk about anything MKX here. Since MK appeals to a large audience I'm interested in hearing what people think. Who are you planning on playing? How do you think the game looks? Are you interested mostly in the single player modes, human competition, or a mixture of both? What's your history with MK and do you play other fighting games? Do you think Predator is awesome?
