I cursed in my mind when that was happening because I knew they would cut it short like always.

@RE_Player92: I guess you mean Kenshi. By the looks of it, his x-ray will be a projectile.

Since when do we have to verify our age before watching a video? :O

@DrX25 No I meant Striker. How will his x-ray work against Kenshi? You can't blind a blind man can you?

@RE_Player92: it won't. It will be like when Johnny Cage used to try and punch the ladies in the groin.

Very Noob Saitbot with some of his moves!

Makes me wish there were more then just the four DLC fighters.

It easy to be blind when you've got a magical sword, a fighting spectral shade and teleporting powers... Well... I guess teleporting is not so good when you cant see... anyway...

It's easy to be blind when your actions are controlled by a sighted person on the other side of a TV.

@papercut: Except Johnny Cage punching ladies in the groin would still affect them just not as much as it would for men.

This's got me interested in MK again, I should go back n buy that!

Whole characters as DLC is way better than costumes.

So is he blind because he's blindfolded, or is he blindfolded because he's blind, in which case, what's the point of a blindfold?

Rutger Hauer from Blind Fury should be the blind MK character.

I liked Kenshi in Deception, so it's cool he's being added. The whole "blind monk" has always been neat to me. I generally like his animations, especially when he gets hit and loses his bearing.

I don't know, I just like the concept which is why I like Kenshi haha.

My guess is they are going to wait and see if that kollection they are doing of all the older games sells well. So if you want this one buy about ten copies of that.

The same reason blind people wear sunglasses. It's not to keep the sun out of their eyes.

Looks kind of like a mixture of Noob and Ermac with his force and clone type moves. Kenshi was definitely the coolest new character introduced in the 3D era of MK games in my opinion. On another note, do you guys recommend I download Skarlet, is she worth 5 bucks?
