PS3 MK9 players. Getting burned out?


Typically the way I  play fighting games is to briefly learn the basics in Single Player then just jump into player matches and learn how to get good by getting my ass beaten. Obviously this aint the case with MK9 on PS3 due to PSN problems. What is everyone doing, hanging out in training mode? soldiering through story mode? I'm just grinding the ladder mode. I can get up to Khan on hard without losing a round with Sonya.

I'm gonna be patient and I'm still looking forward to getting online but I can only play single player for so long. Fighting games are all about human competition, something that MK9 is unfortunately lacking right now.

I really want to test my skills online but the remaining challenges and ladders are more than enough to keep me entertained

Instead of totally focusing on one character I'm learning more about them all.

It is annoying because with my main (Mileena) I'm at the point where I need to watch other fighters, but I'm also learning more about guys like Shang Tsung and Ermac who I just could never get.

I've been working the Challenge Ladder and Story Mode. Even when PSN comes back, I still probably won't go online, cause I suck.

Have PSN users not been able to play at all, yet? I'm not sure when the outage actually started.

There's a lot of single player content to be had, and you can still do local, if that's your thing. I spent a bunch of time playing Street Fighter, and I never went online.

Done the story (Was not expecting it to be so badass) and getting started on challenges. I'm still looking for a main, but the two characters I used to hate Jade and Nightwolf are pretty cool in this one.

I bought it today. Figured this online business affords me a chance to catch up and actually be able to compete!

I've completed the story and all of the challenge tower. Yeah, I'm pretty much burned out. I won't be playing much until PSN goes back up.

I bought it a couple days ago, so I'm just going through the story right now, doing some challenges, etc. Not burnt out on it yet! I'm loving it.
