    Don't get too excited about purported roster leaks. I'm seeing a lot of people say Reptile is in based on a comment by a NRS rep that you can activate Reptile's acid ball in one of the tower modes. Well the tower mode footage out there now shows there's a bunch of modifiers (or "konsumables") available that let you use special moves that don't belong to your fighter. "Saurian Acid Ball" is one of them. Reptile is not referenced by name and does not appear when the special is used. It just spawns an acid ball projectile out of thin air.

    That said, no guarantee he's in. Or anyone who hasn't been officially announced, with the sole exception being Cassie Cage since she was briefly shown in game.

    Liu Kang won Mortal Kombat 1 and 2. In MK3 Shao Kahn decided to pull some weird sorcery loophole by reincarnating Sindel on Earth which would give him...jurisdiction rights?...imminent domain? over the Earth, I guess.

    Is that the original Cannon? I thought so but can't remember what Kung Lao was up to.

    I always thought "He must win" refereed to Kung Lao in the remake. Raiden fucked everything up though so who knows really. I should do a brief re-read of the cannonical story line some time.
    The sindel thing, she sacraficed herself, or died putting a protective spell on earthrealm. Reviving her gets rid of it as it was done by her death or she just reverses it as she's all changed and stuff Ibelieve.

    Reptile to me is almost as set to the brand as Scorpion and Sub Zero. They were the original ninjas, even if one was originally a secret that just combined their special moves.

    Raiden fucked everything up in MK9 yes, but he must win was referencing Shao Khan illegally invading the Earth in MK3. If he won that would allow the still alive Elder Gods to rip him a new one.

    Raiden fucked up by being constantly wrong on who should win and when.

    Also by telling his past self a cryptic as fuck message.

    In his slight defense, I can completely understand the idea that a message sent to the past would need to be oblique/get affected by going back through time/seem super obvious to future self and less obvious to past self.

    Also to be fair, there wasn’t much time to send the message. He couldn’t have been like “Alright so a dude named Lui Kang is gonna winnthe Mortal Kombat tournament but Shao Kahn is gonna get pissy and throw a tournament in Otherworld. It’s cool, Lui will win that as well. Then Shao Kahn is going to abuse some bullshit loophole and merge the realms together anyway. When that happens, HE MUST WIN. I know it sounds crazy but the Elder Gods will fuck him for cheating which will prevent the apocalypse of all realms.

    I don't get the whole Shaggy thing. Is there a story there, or is he just the latest random meme?


    Also, watching some of Max's old MKX videos. I really hope they bring back Jackie for MK 11. She's so great! Just whooping someone's ass like "Awwww damn!"

    The best part is, aside from the obvious reasons why they won't, Netherealm could very easily get that as a guest character.

    I thought my meme lore was pretty solid, but this is the first time I'm hearing of this. Which makes a pic I saw referencing shaggy doing something amazing this morning make sense.

    If I recall my memes correctly (I'm so lame) this satirical bootleg toy kicked off the joke

    I still have a weird desire for Drahmin to come back. I guess Devorah way outdid him on the bug shtick, but it was cool having an actual demon as a playable character, and the oni mask/club arm combo was a good idea.

    Of course, he did have a limited ceiling, storytelling-wise, living in a pit and eating people for Shang Tsung, but I think he was underrated.

    So, it seems that we're not the only one that feel this way.

    Would it really be so far fetched? I mean, the Turtles made it into MK and seemed to be pretty well received.
    And, as much as any developer can, NetherRealms seems to have a sense of humor about their properties.

    Yes, I know that this is almost certainly a lot of people following the shiniest of new memes, backed up by a veritable army of bots and that Change.Org rarely, if ever Changes anything.
    But the idea of it makes for a good chuckle. And don't forget post apocalyptic Scooby Doo was a thing that happened. So whoever owns that franchise has a sense of humor as well.

    The issue I think is that Shaggy is a kids cartoon character, and TMNT made it into the decidedly less gorey Injustice 2.

    Shaggy being in MK means he'd have to die, and in brutal fashion, over and over. It works fine for horror characters and monsters but, Shaggy being decapitated is maybe a bridge too far. Though, I think some comics explored the more adult side of what Scooby Doo could be, so who knows.

    The Turtles made it into Injustice, not MK. I don't think there's any conceivable way Shaggy makes it into a game like Mortal Kombat.

    I guess it'd be interesting from a novelty standpoint, but Shaggy would feel like a waste of a guest spot to me. I guarantee that petition is 100% meme related, and no one really cares if Shaggy makes it in or not.

    Krang looked pretty sweet in their arcade ladder ending too. I wouldn't say no to a NRS developed "Saturday Morning Cartoon" fighting game. I mean, I wouldn't say no to any NRS developed fighting game, but that'd be sweet. I'd want a horror movie mash-up fighting game from them first, though.

    i'd love an NRS turtles fighting game. although i just wish there were more TMNT games in general fighting or otherwise. as for shaggy i can't imagine him showing up in MK. while it would be incredibly amusing to me there are too many things about it that would make it unfeasible.

    Nice seeing Kano scaled back a little.

    He was starting to toe the line into CyberNinja territory with how they were bulking up his gear in MKX.

    Never really been all that big into Kano. People are absolutely certain Kabal is in too.

    while i am not always a fan of the specific designs i do appreciate that MK changes everything up each time. even scorpion and subzero while recognizable have wildly different variations game to game. i think it's a cool way to keep things visually interesting

  • Linespider5Linespider5 ALL HAIL KING KILLMONGER Registered User regular
    I know I think entirely too much about MK, but on review, Kano is kind of ‘Earth-Baraka’ for most purposes, just more likely to betray whoever he’s working for. In the original MK I thought he was supposed to be some kind of criminal mastermind, and maybe he was for a little while. I would be shocked/impressed if Netherrrealm found a way to elevate him into being more of a credible bad guy.

    Think I might reinstall MKX this weekend and mess around. Youtube keeps recommending me MK related videos, and there was a neat MKX thing I saw about "flirty" dialogue lines. Couple of choice ones:

    Erron Black: Chicks with guns, always sexy.

    Sonya: How about I shove em up your ass and pull the trigger?

    Erron Black: Almost always

    and my favorite

    Takeda: We don't have to do this...

    Jackie: You don't want to wrestle me to the ground?

    Takeda: Ok, let's do this!

    These lines worked better in IJ2, if only because (almost) everyone was superhuman, and could handle being blasted into space, or shot down by the Batwing with gunfire and missiles, but no one actually dies.

    Takeda wrestling Jackie into the ground includes using his whips to sever her limbs. That's true love.

    They legitimately have so many characters they could include or rework/redesign. They redid Stryker, for god’s sake. At this point I almost wouldn’t be surprised if they resurrected Biped Motaro and made him awesome.

  • Skull2185Skull2185 Registered User regular
    I'd be down with biped Motaro, but my preference would be the return of Kintaro. And Sheeva too! I just love those 4 armed dragon-cat people.
