Mortal Kombat X Review: Hahahahaha

Did you just throw that old lady at me?

Mortal Kombat X
PS4, Xbox One and PC

Mortal Kombat X just hit the scene and it came, guys put down that stuff, 'Did you just shoot bug juice at me D'Vorah?! That's it, "Get over here!"

These rowdy fighters are back for blood with fatalities to flat-line you oh so severely. An easy to learn control scheme lets you learn moves to eviscerate your opponent or just break some balls. A story so action adventure oriented you'll be sure it was made in the 90's. Butt loads of extras for the fighter who want to pummel online with Faction War.

Why not go over some new recruits first though? We have Cassie Cage. The daughter of Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage. She looks pretty, packs a wallop and will shoot you in the face. The other new offspring is Jax's daughter and she has her own arm cannons that fire bullets into you. Rule 63 -dude becomes a lady- the girls name is Jacqui Briggs. Sonya Blade brings a drone to battle. I know she's not new, I just like she has some heavy ordnance now with missile payloads. You also have arrow/staff Kung Jin and Takeda, the son of the blind psychic Kenshi. Kung Jin is supposedly gay in the who cares department of I didn't pick that up until I read about it. Because if he were openly gay, there would be a lot more dark jokes about him using a staff from the game itself.

Adding to the mix: D'Vorah;creepy bug lady, Ferra & Torr; totally inspired from Master Blaster from Mad Max, Kotal Kahn; play on Aztec G-d and Erron Black; this guy brought six shooters to a fighter? This new blood has players learning new fighters to master.

I just killed my own son and I couldn't be happier! Old blood, the regular fighters return. If you remember their moves than you can instantly pick up the game and beat down any newbies with your mastery of Johnny Cage or Sonya Blade. Kenshi can take out his own son, Takeda, as I did just now while playing, raising questions about MORALITY!

On killing my own son, let's talk Kombat. Kombat has you mastering the moves of each fighter to perfectly deconstruct you opponent. Every fighter has an array of moves to master and special attacks that can have you laying a long time, bloody combo on your opponent. Moves can be martial arts, energy based, magic or people can just take out a gun a shoot you.

Players get even more choices on how to take down an enemy as every fighter has three "variations of themselves. So randomly pickin' Johnny Cage; he has: Fisticuffs, A-List and Stunt Double. Each variation of Cage gives him special abilities the other doesn't. Like A-list can charge attacks, while Stunt Double produces a doppelganger to help your attacks. Now when you master a character you have to do it three times. Some characters can even summon demons on their variations and your characters look differs so you can tell the difference.

Backgrounds resemble Injustice with elements you can rip out and throw at your opponent, like a little old lady. You can turn this feature off, but why would you want to? All throw as many old ladies as I want.

Your fighter also builds up energy for an X-ray attack from landing punches and taking hits. The X-ray is a devasting move by each character that turns your opponent into an x-ray scan of epic pain. Pain and guts being ripped out and teeth coming out. Many times when I played that energy would be eaten away to perform breakers which stopped and enemies assault on my person and let me get the upper hand.

Sometimes I felt responses were slow. I thought I taped out a combo or blocked in time. Yet, I didn't. Tighter controls may need to be tweeked with an update.

Fatalities, the games staples are back and as beautiful as ever. Making me ponder as usual as what those meetings and NetherRealm were like when they came up with cutting off opponents arms with lasers with a drone or having their faces melted off by acid as only the start of opponents humiliating deaths. Fatalities come in twos, so learn to kill people twice over. You also have Brutalities where some of your normal game moves are finished off by brutally ending the fight by lets say ripping off an opponents arm.

Happy 6th Anniversary TTDILA!

Sometimes I Think People Care Too Much About Star Wars

Did you bring your f-ing baby to wait in line?

Chimney was Spencer Rothbell

On a recent episode of Clarence, the episode "Chimney", the young lad found a dog with eyes of two colors. The dog was given the named Chimney and much laughs were had making fun of the idea of Lassie. This was not just a homage to Lassie, but a homage to the writer, wizard and suspected current show-runner Spencer Rothbell. Spencer is of course a wizard and takes the form of animals from time to time. As such, the crew must have just put his dog form in the episode as Chimney who also has two different color eyes. Something that only occurs in wizards.
