I am so disappointed in you NR. Hope it flops worse then DoA 6.
Gotta say, while the bikini costumes were impractical and honestly pretty cringy, going the opposite direction and dressing yourself in what appears to be all the bed sheets and curtains from a hotel room is equally retarded for fighting game costume design. Sonya wearing what appears to be leather pants and jacket would also be poor choices.
Man, the excess finishing moves our just a bit too violent. What's next? MK 21 will have real life realism where it looks like you are killing someone for real?
I find the revulsion over expression of sexuality baffling. Bikinis are now cringey? Not that I remember ever having bikini costumes in MK, that was DOA, which I never really liked and not because of that. But because first is gameplay, but after we have that I still want the fighters to look good.
And the fact is that wearing less clothing for fighting is practical. If you wear baggy clothes your opponent can grab onto them, it can get tangled up, and you can get choked with your own shirt. There is a reason people immediately take off their jacket / shirt in a brawl, and it's practicality. So this ahole saying that they dressed up women for practical reasons is an outright lie. And the fact that most male fighters in the game are still bare chested seals it.
I recall playing the original Dead or Alive on PS1 and seeing the utterly (udderly?) ridiculous attempt at "boob physics" on all the scantily-clad female characters. That shit was cringe-worthy then and I was a teenager at the time, but my friends and I laughed it off and basically attributed that stuff to "horny Japanese men" that we figured went out of their way to program it. That series has basically doubled down on the concept with every release since then though, so at least they're consistent.
But no, I would not consider a bikini to be a good choice for a female fighting game character, just as I would not expect a banana hammock to be a good choice for a male character. Judging by the designs for the men in those pictures, the women should also have some sort of combination of skin, armor, and clothing, and I would think there would be plenty of opportunities to make it "sexy" while not going completely overboard into pornland.
It's just so fucking pathetic isn't it?
lol at costume realism, impracticality, etc etc. they get stabbed in the brain, chest, neck etc and hop right back up. also, yes the topless men is hypocritical.
Honestly I don't remember ever playing DOA, but the realism excuse is just pathetic. People get their bones broken a dozen times in a round, but they say it is not realistic to show some skin in a fighting attire. Maybe they should tell that to professional MMA fighters. Their dishonesty knows no bounds, and I don't want anything to do with a dishonest ideolog.

Are there gonna be skimpy alternate costumes though?
only for the men...
That's all that matters....
I agree totally. They move around like crabs, i don't get it.
Man this stuff is disappointing, I've always been such a big MK fan. All this news is so sad =(
Deception is still the pinnacle of the series for me.
Have you played the newer games since MK9? They play pretty differently from the original series.
There is a patch coming to fix the grinding on the way.
I guess for me it would have been UMK3. Beyond that, I don't really have much connection to the series. I bought MKX but never really liked how slow and clunky the fighters felt. Plus, I just don't feel like learning a bunch of combos and stuff anymore.
I really hope it is a most significant patch. I picked up the title (without Kombat pack, buit I got it for around 43% off) on the reports that the core mechanics of the game, options, tutorials, and depth of content including single player content are all present. In fact, most reviews of the game that do NOT mention the potential for grind or whatnot generally find the game almost entirely positive, though stopping sort of calling it best "modern" MK, saying that award may still go to MK9 (ie the remake of 1-3 Ultimate, storywise), though they definitely consider it better than both MKX AND Injustice 2 .
That's why the grind and difficulty unlocking is so disappointing to me - ESPECIALLY in light of this being a Warner Bros + Netherrealm title. FIrst, WB just recently, with Shadow of War figured out that shitty lootbox monetization will reuin a game - even a good one. To their eventual credit, they revamped the game into the Definitive Edition and rebalanced it to take all the craptacular "lets ENCOURAGE them to buy a loot box by grinding" shit out of it, leaving the game as it was supposed to be played - a MUCH better title! Netherrealm has proven with with MK9, MKX, Injustice, and Injustice 2 they can make reasons for people to keep playing and giving them things to unlock without it being a massive grind with lootboxes the goal - they KNOW how to do that. THey even have other monetization options available in the Kombat Packs, season passes with new characters and more so it isn't like there's no opportunity to monetize, but they need to justify that base AAA game fee and initial Kombat pack value first of all!
Hopefully they'll really fix this and it won't be a "slight adjustment" because they've already lost so much good will by creating the mess in the first place, they can't expect a lot of it to return just by cleaning it up - IF they clean it up properly at all.
This is what ticks me off about game journalism these days. The IGN review in particular goes to lengths to describe the grind and what a detriment it is to the experience, yet they still give the game a 9/10. I hope the advertising was worth the taste of putting your foot in your mouth, IGN.
LOL I love how they are calling it a "patch" to "fix" the scummy business practices.
Actually, only fighting nude makes sense. The Greek believe in this too. It's not pornography because the concept isn't meant for titillation. It's meant as a practical and equal footing. It meant you could trust your opponent to be free of advantages as everything is laid bare.
This is the only acceptable fighting attire. Everything else is an attempt to be prudish.
We’re aiming to release the patch early next week. This patch will include:
Reduce AI difficulty · Increased Kurrency rewards in Towers of Time · Thank you gift (500,000 Koins, 500 Hearts, 1,000 Soul Fragments and 1,000 Time Krystals)
