So, not made a journal entry on here for a year or two now! I'm still alive!
The New Mortal Kombat game has been out since April 19th, I got mine two days after that as I pre-ordered mine online, worth the wait as I have a nifty Tournament Arcade Stick to go with the game! Really harkens back to the old days playing the original games in the arcade for sure.
The game is what fans of old have been waiting for, great gameplay and gory finishers. And online play to boot! I've beaten the Challenge tower 300 missions without a skip (some are crazy hard to beat) and got the reward from that.
I'm finding a lot of fun and replay with the game, too. It's kept me away from playing WoW as well, hardly have logged on to do much in that since I got my hands on the new MK game.
I'm liking Kitana, Mileena, and Cyrax the best thus far along with Sektor. Sektor might not be quite the melee combo-holic as some others are but his combos are quick and to the point with their damage. Ermac is a lot of fun as well.
Online play on the whole is good, though in full King of the Hill rooms it can cause Disconnects and lag. The Netherrealm team is committed to working on and fixing the problems so it's not so bad.
Skarlet, an upcoming DLC character looks great so far! There have been Youtube leaks of her gameplay and fatalities recently and I'll link those here for your viewing pleasure.
I've been wanting her to play as since I saw a glimpse of her in Gamepro's feature on MK recently as she is more "Ninja" than most characters in this outing and anyone that knows me well knows how I like Ninja.

Skarlet - Fountain of pain Fatality: youtu.be/bnBGRSF2A2Q (as you can see, not totally finished, her tanto Ninja Knives don't show when she impales with them)
Skarlet's intro stance and babality: youtu.be/pWoz6q3GPVw
Note that these could be taken down from Youtube at any time, I was about to link her Xray move but it's been removed so...watch asap!
If I can get a replacement Wacom pen (the clicker is busted on mine, nephew got to playing around with it...) I'll see on doing up some new MK artwork again as I'm in the mood to start Drawing again.
