    the past few games (9 and X) have been a reboot, alternate timeline thing
    This looks like maybe the return of the original characters from the original timeline?

    But why is Raiden evil? And why did MK1 Scorpion show up? Why are they bringing back weapons again?

    raiden is evil because he cleansed the heart of the earth after it had been tainted by an evil fallen elder god

    Scorpions look changes every entry

    they arent in the way you think (as stances), some characters have weapon strikes as part of their normal attacks, like yoshimitsu in tekken or something

    @Peas

    In Mortal Kombat the earth has a mystic heart/power source type thing called the Jinsei

    Shinnok, an ex elder god who went evil, tainted this source and was going to use the power for evil purposes

    Raiden cleansed it, but in doing so got tainted with evil energy

    Re: Mortal Kombat 11 (spoiler/speculation)
    I guess there is some time-fuckery going on so different kombatants from different eras will be around.

    Which is why OG Scorpion shows up at the end, and with a shot of a lady next to an hourglass (who is probably pulling the strings).

    This is a great way to bring back fan favorites that have been killed off (Shinnok, Quan Chi, Smoke, etc.)

    Hopefully they don't roll back Raiden's character development because I really enjoy him being a total dick.

    I know I’ve played all the way though MK9 but it’s been so long I forget anything about the story. For whatever reason I just cannot grasp the input and combo mechanics vs something like a SF or anime fighter.

    agree

    I wonder how much the industry has analyzed the efficacy of longer marketing cycles

    like does 18 months worth of hype videos and ad buys result in larger sales numbers?

    or does saving the marketing budget until a few months before launch result in more profits?

  • JayKaosJayKaos Registered User regular
    Short marketing cycles are only possible when you have a definitive launch date and know you can keep to it, probably a lot of companies don't have that luxury or may need to be sure there's hype for the game to help secure funding, publishers, etc.

    Ok yeah, Sonic Fox is a cool dude to me

    Something else I want to point out about SonicFox that I appreciate. So like... it's easy to think that fighting games are readily interchangeable, viewed from the outside. But that's like saying you could easily jump from Counter-Strike to PUBG to Quake to Tribes and be just as proficient in any of them. Some things carry over, but you have to account for some very different systems.

    Well, SonicFox was initially known as an NRS player-- Mortal Kombat and Injustice, kind of slow, stiltedly-animated games with not exactly "shallow" player-bases but less than the Street Fighter, Marvel vs. Capcom, and so on types. A lot of the FGC types dismissed him as a big fish of a small pond.

    Then SonicFox took up Dragonball FighterZ. DBFZ is an "anime fighter", which is on the polar opposite end of the scale. Very long combos, very fast character movement, small timing windows, and (I know this sounds silly) a much larger Japanese player base. And you know what? SonicFox didn't just do well, he won EVO, the biggest international fighting game tournament that the best of the best show up to.

    So SonicFox didnt just win big, he also won big in the face of the community setting out to diminish his accomplishments. It's a real underdog story that went the right way.

    My favorite musical instrument is the air-raid siren.

    The shorter your marketing cycle the closer you are to a release date, and presumably that means it's firmer.

    It seems like Outer Worlds is also going to be a short cycle since it's slated for 2019 right?

    MK11 coming out in it's normal release window reinforces my thoughts that the announcement was purposefully held back from E3 for the Game Awards instead, which is sort of interesting to think about in terms of just what E3 means to different companies these days.

    Fallout 4 should’ve shown everyone that a four month hype cycle is perfectly fine, and MK11 is only going to justify it more

    I’m guessing MK11 is probably moving much more aggressively into an online environment (the trailer could definitely make sense in that context as I’m sure we’re all gonna fight endless waves of Scorpion players for a while), and that, to me, implies the creation of a longer post-release hype cycle to keep people playing and grow the base.
