|It looks absolutely incredible.|
I was really, really enjoying my time with Mortal Kombat X. I loved its story mode, loved its low-rent cheesy epicness and sassy one-liners. I loved brawling my way up the towers with Cassie and earning some unlocks.
But the past tense is operative, here. I tried online matches today.
I feel like Nick Fury when he explained to the team in the first Avengers movie why he'd been using the Tesseract to create weapons. "We are hopelessly, hilariously outgunned."
I just couldn't. Do. Shit. Couldn't do anything. I got boxed into a corner and had absolutely no clue how to get out. I couldn't manage myself, like I can in Virtua Fighter.
I promised Chamberlain I'd be happy to go a few rounds with him, but now... now I feel like a school kid who just got the shit bullied out of him, and doesn't intend on returning to the playground ever again. Why bother?
Why poke my head up to see, if it's just going to get cut off - and I'd learn nothing in the process? You'd think it would match me with some fellow noobs, but everyone I met were some sort of supernatural ultra-gamers.
This must be what Chamberlain felt like, playing Bloodborne. I don't get it, and don't want to subject myself to it any more.
'Cause I was really, really enjoying it.
