I'm not much of a Ninja Theory fan either. I agree that all their games are wanting in the gameplay department, and are generally only lauded for successes in other, less important (to me, anyway), areas.

Although you don't care for her, I thought Nariko was a decent character, and that part at the end when you're wrecking loads of dudes is pretty alright.

Enslaved has some excellent performance capture, but Uncharted 2: Among Thieves had already set the bar higher when this game first released. World design is pretty, I guess.

I wasn't too thrilled when DMC brought back Heavenly Sword's on-the-fly stance/weapon changes. I feel that alternating between the R2/L2 buttons throws off the balance of the controller in my hands and makes it difficult for me to pull off combos that I never would have had issues with in previous Devil May Cry games. Some of the levels looked cool, I guess, but I couldn't even bring myself to finish this game and see them all.

So the only consistently good element to their games is that they look good... except they kind of don't. All their games have this hideous grimy grain filter that just makes them look unfinished. They look the way games look in crummy GameStop machinima commercials.

@eaxis: He's not a reporter. That's an editorial program, not a news program.

It's super cheesy, but it got me way more interested in the game than playing the alpha/beta did.

Also, show people what you're talking about when you make a post like this.

I wouldn't trust any pre-release reviews of a game this heavily invested in online play.

I'd rather have the cat.

Put Goro in the game for everybody and have this guy be a pre-order add-on, as a alternate skin.

As long as its just Goro, im ok with it. I figured they chose him is because he is a throwaway/novelty character right? Thats my perception of him at least.

There's no reason why he has to be. Given his treatment in past games, and the fact that they've turned him into a pre-order bonus, it seems probable to me that he will be a novelty character in MKX. A new game could mean a new Goro. Just not for everybody.

And novelty characters can still be fun to play. The broad appeal of MK is, in part, novelty-driven--what with ultra-violence, X-ray moves, fatalities, etc.

1. 4chan didn't start gamergate, Adam Baldwin did

2. An open IRC is what it is, a place where anyone can post anything. It is too easy to take something out of context, impersonate another person or manipulate for it to be taken seriously. They don't prove a thing.

3. Do you not realise how big gamergate is? Taking a snapshot of about 10 or so people (who's identities can't be proven), and claiming "they coordinated all of this" simply won't hold up.

4. That article, again, proves nothing. It not only barely has any depth on the matter, it attempts to paint all people using the gamergate tag as being complicit in some kind of "mass misogynist conspiracy", which is obviously not the case.

Nope, these articles prove it. It's over guys. We can all pretend it never happened now.

It's cute that they're tying this hard though, right?

Is he really a pre-order bonus? Fuck that.

I don't think he curses any more than the other guys. I also don't care if he does.
