Looking forward to this release. KF1 was a surprise hit for me. Was even able to convince my friend to pick it up and had a lot of fun playing together. We hadn't done that since the old days of Counter-Strike.

Err yea this Garnett fellow is pretty overbearing.. Can't remember if I've heard him on here before but perhaps he was the same person who I felt this same way about last time.

Not sure why more people aren't weirded/freaking out that Michael's head is like the exact same model as Sub-Zero in MKX lol

Annihilation was cool! It actually represented a bunch of characters and pretty well. It was corny of course but the first movie sucked and had no one in it. Its like MK2 vs MK3U.

I'll be honest, I already bought this game but this supposed difficulty ramp with all the new enemy placements and harder stuff is really turning me off. I did not think the original DS2 was even remotely easy and required all this. This looks kinda dumb.

And the way the movement and attack speed and stuff feels so much slower than Bloodborne makes this that much harder to play.

After seeing this, I'm thinking I'm definitely not going to go back and play it.

And +123456789 on a Jason Souls related DS2 thing. That way I don't have to play this new one. Jasouls. Or something clever.

I think the flag/sign girls are a nice touch. But I'm not ashamed to say I don't mind looking at lovely ladies. I think it adds some culture (not sure if that is the right way to describe it) to each track. And it's interesting to see the different outfits they end up wearing and how it might reflect their country's style or whatever. /shrug

That being said, you wanna make it fair then I'd be perfectly fine with them having an equal amount of dudes out there for the spectators interested in that. Nothing wrong with that.

I do think any of the other weird trophy girl type stuff is weird and awkward and that's in all kinds of motorsports. The winner standing there while women practically hang on their arms, sponsors plastered all over them, and a big ol forced fake smile.

@drew@dannyodwyer For the brake temp question, it was roughly answered above, but in terms of general performance brakes, the brake pad materials are much harder for durability because of racing conditions (if you were to take normal brake pads designed for street use onto a track and in race conditions, the pads would literally turn to dust even after just a couple laps) and thus need to be brought up to higher temperatures to get them to a certain level of softness that provides optimal friction but not too much otherwise the pad and rotor will become excessively hot, release gases, lose friction, and wear much quicker. This is basically known as "Brake Fade". You can also warp a brake rotor from it getting too hot, which you'll feel in the brake pedal via a pulsing sensation.

And hydraulic fluid used in performance brake applications is different as well since the normal type of fluid used in street cars will literally boil because of heat transfer from the pads and rotors into the calipers (the part that fluid goes into and pinches the pads against the rotors). When the fluid boils, it'll start to create gas pockets (I think) in the system and gases are more easily compressed compared to a thick fluid, thus when the driver presses the brake pedal, it ends up compressing the gas instead of pushing against the brakes and the driver essentially loses brakes/pedal pressure.

I liked the F2P korean MMO sounding music in the first chunk haha

Ehh this looks weird. Definitely not the traditional FF I've wanted them to make.. and besides that, the action oriented combat doesn't look good.. If they are just going to give up on the core FF audience and do combat like that, then copy off Souls or God of War games or something. At least then I could be like "Eh its not FF but its different and good in its own ways.."

Instead, this just makes me think "Man.. imagine if they used modern tech to make a proper classic FF game?"
