Wish I'd been around for this.

My Jade's getting vicious and my Liu Kang needs practice. I'm also right there with Jason: fuck Scorpion. All day. Every day.

As a Kitana main I'm tickled to hear the guys suddenly discover how cool she is in the matches near the end of this. Gorenado owns.

@elite49: Considering they talked specifically about Netherrealm Studios for about 10 seconds before very quickly shifting to talking about the problem in general when they talked about it on the Bombcast, I am going to go out on a limb and say it will not be mentioned at all.

Quick tip to any duder: if you kreate a Forever King room, you'll always be playing regardless of win or lose, and just cycles players around to fight you. I think that'd be a more efficient way to play in a setting like this. I LOVED this stream and I hope you do more!

Man I really hope they do at least one more of these ( for Xbox people ) before the end of year. I would really like to get in on the fun ( I missed this one ) and represent my Frost and Baraka. Fun stream though.

This video doesn't show up on the Giant Bomb Video Buddy, and likely other related apps. If I hadn't come to the site I wouldn't have seen it. This seems to be a trend.

@tadthuggish: do you reckon it just hasn't been processed for that stuff yet? Happens a lot.

Looks like there was an error in the video processor - it'll appear in feeds when that gets resolved. Sorry for the trouble.

@twoarmed: Inviting him now would be a mistake imo. Even if Boon is not directly involved in the shitty practices at Netherrealm, he is allowing them to happen. Inviting him now would be really weird after all the discussions around shitty workplaces on the bomb/beastcast.

I have faith in the guys and gal to do the right thing and even if we do get him on the couch, I'm at least hoping we get a more critical Jeff (Like the Phil Spencer interview from 2015).

For anyone looking to get intros and victories, they're set drops in the Krypt and Towers of Time. For the Krypt, placing a character's head (25 fatals/brutals on that character) will get you a victory. Placing more heads on the pikes will open another area where you'll find 25K boxes that will have another victory and intro for characters strewn about. You'll need every character head (625 fatals/brutals total--big yikes!) to fully open that area.

For the Towers of TIme, you get an intro, a victory and another intro in the 1st, 3rd and 5th Character's Tower sets respectively. I've only seen the intros that you get in the 1st set of the Character Towers on the storefront, so I wouldn't recommend spending Krystals on those, since they're the easiest ones you'll get.

@paugerot: @twoarmed:I bet he shows up and honestly wouldn't be surprised if Jeff asks him about it, he's never been one to hold back. Also it's not just a Netherrealm problem it's an industry problem so Im glad unlike many other gaming news outlets GB tries to focus on the big picture.

There are stage Brutalities. I've found at least one. It was super random and amazing to see. Really took me back.

@rounderob: One part of me agrees that the treatment is pretty inexcusable (given it's all true and not conflated/exaggerated and heresay) and even if boon isnt responsible or wholly responsible (prrtty sure he isn't) he is pretty much the face of netherrealm and it should be something he addresses and owns up to representing the company. otoh so many people want their pound of flesh and even that won't be enough and yes they also ignore this is an INDUSTRY problem and we can do better as a whole. Just tired of internet rage in general and it is so off putting even when it's more warranted in cases like this. Something still feels off to me about the accusations particular to NR, though. Also I kinda wonder what the big deal is not really having a problem working 60-70 hr weeks consistently at a mostly desk job. (but hey that's just me!)

@elite49: I'm thinking no to Jeff bringing it up. One thing you gotta do as host and if you want your guests to keep coming back and feeling relaxed on the couch, don't grill them on serious subjects. Keep it light. Late night streams vibe doesn't clash well serious topics like that. Especially if there are other guests during the segments.

@luciddreams117: Jeff straight-up asked Phil why so many games were being passed through cert busted, and then (the next year I believe?) told him that Funco Pops would partner with literally anyone. Phil keeps coming back, and the night show is no stranger to serious topics being discussed.

Edit: Holy heck Jason is on fire with some of those Skarlet combos. Every time they play this game I want to buy it so badly but... everything else... ugh.
