    I mean you already have Kano

    So you're saying we're getting a metroid type game where kano can drop bombs in his spinny move.

    I think we all missed the big deal with that DLC:

    It being the t-1000. It's still a terminator and you have more possibilities with it. Being able to morph your body into weapons, he could have long range probjectiles or even moves like venom had in marvel vs capcom. Plus he could have some pretty cool fatalities.

    Arnold, would just have guns and a lot of strength

    disagree.
    I want the T-800, just the endoskeleton, a nasty, hateful silver machine man that’s all swiveling arms and heavy metal. No Arnold or guns, just a strong robot man with red eyes who doesn’t bleed.

    Yes, I think that would be easier to make work than
    The T-800, but I have a feeling the fans would be upset if isn't Arnold's model. But I grew up in that 80's and 90's - watched Terminator 2 more times than I can count. If they can get Robert Patrick to VA the T-1000, I'll be very happy.

    How do you make that work with some of the fatalities we've seen, especially the "skinning" ones?

    I never even thought of that problem as I thought that might be the route as
    Arnold likeness might cost money

    That’s an excellent question. No idea, really, but maybe
    the ‘skin’ is the outer layer of the surface. Like the silver wrapper of a candy bar. T-800’s gotta be full of filament wire and other busy electronics that can spill out for fatalities.

    If the leak is true
    Someone pointed out that these are all speaking characters compared to the MKX guest characters who were all non-speaking. Based on that alone and the possibilities it means for some great banter, I'm already more hyped than I was for the MKX characters.

    Some of the dialog of the guest characters has also already, supposedly, been datamined (spoilering again in case folks don't want to see this yet):
    Joker: You look like a hugger, bring it in!
    Spawn: I'll turn you inside-out ass first, clown
    Joker: I love it when they talk dirty!

    DLC leak
    The Terminator's dialogue better have a first-person view where he selects his dialogue.

    And it's always "fuck you, asshole".

    It looked like Liu Kang to me, infused with god powers or something

    Yeah...spoiler you guys are talking about.
    Guy at the end had fire and lightning swirling around him. So seemed like Liu Kang and Raiden fused somehow?

    Maybe like Raiden ends up sacrificing himself and giving Liu his powers or something.

    Or the Elder Gods make Liu Kang the new protector of Earthrealm.

    I asked about it a couple pages ago, but I went ahead and picked up a Hori Fighting Commander because I don't care for MK games on stick and I don't like my elite Xbox controller for fighting games in general.

    In case anyone was wondering, it's a pretty solid controller. Light (it doesn't have rumble, so none of that componentry adding to the weight), but not cheap - solid build. Responsive input on dpad and buttons. Tested it out on MvC:I and I'm digging it so far. In case anyone is looking for something as an alternative to the base system controllers for their respective consoles (there is a PS4 version), it's pretty slick.

    It turns out Raiden’s wikipedia page presently has a surprisingly detailed rundown of the thunder god’s role in the MK timeline. I guess Reptile’s people were collateral damage in the original war against Shinnok? Oh, Raiden.

    They were collateral. Turns or when two gods have an all out war, it fucks some shit up.

    Kind of baffled there isn't a Nintendo exclusive character. Dorf wrecking some MK mooks could be super fun, and entirely in line with the character.

    I think exclusive characters might be a thing of the past. I feel like it’s probably more lucrative for them to go the DLC route with stunt casting from outside properties.

    The lighting and coloring on the Switch version looks more...basic than what we’ve seen in the others-like the assets are the same but they lack one or two passes and come off more stripped down. Flatter colors. Maybe they’ve even got the brightness maxed out.

    Weirdly, the blood effects look absolutely identical.

    @klemming is onto something here. Kirby can kill without it being gory. Just show Kirby inhale them, then show the person moving around inside Kirby until they stop moving. Its effective, horrifying, bloodless, and fucked up. This works.

    And then Kirby spits out a star crafted of bones and meat that explodes when it hits the edge of the screen.

    Alternatively, Yoshi. There's a cutscene in Crafted World that's practically a sanitised fatality.
    You find an object and get the choice of breaking it or not. Select break, and the eggless Yoshi looks around and spots a Shyguy just minding his own business. The two look at each other for a moment, and you can see the helpless fear on that hidden masked face. Then Yoshi's tongue extends, and instant darkness.
