[GT] Mortal Kombat X: Easy Fatalities

post #1 of 47

If you ever played Mortal Kombat you know the game isn’t just pick up and get good, it requires practice. The first time a fatality felt amazing because you have to hit a certain amount of buttons pretty much perfectly to get your fatality. Now they have an optional fatality system for Mortal Kombat X were it just makes it too simple.

This was confirmed at a live stream on twitch which they do often. Community specialist Tyler Lansdown confirmed fans’ suspicion that a small skull near the bottom of the screen was linked to the new, easier fatalities. “Now we’ve learned through years and years of study that there are a lot of people that just can’t pull off fatalities, or they get freaked out or they can’t figure out the timing. So when the game launches you’ll have a couple of those – maybe three – on day one. You’ll have those just to use and do easy fatalities on” Lansdown publicised.

“There are certain places you can unlock those and things like that. So you’ll always have access to easy fatalities – if you want them” Lansdown resolved. Which mean you have to earn majority these skull on game which you spend on pulling off easy fatalities.

I remember when I mastered all of Scorpions move. I guess these skulls will be easy to hold of so it could it mean easy fatalitys all the time.

I dont care, I end up beating my opponents backside

Meh. Its just one more of thous "lets make it more casual" things. Not that it really maters. I do remember way back when on the SNES that we had tons of fun screwing up fatalities. Trying to rip out someones spine and ending up strait punching them once in the face instead, that was funny. On the flip side it was always really satisfying actually pulling them off.

I think its fine, you have to learn the fatalities first. Then later you can unlock the easy fatalities. Doesn't bother me, still have to learn them first.
On the other hand I do hope they have brutalities, those are hard to pull off.

Doesn't take away from the game and just makes it slightly more accessible for new comers to at least get a feel and continue playing to gradually get better where they wont even need the skulls any more. Pretty good idea I think.

Failing a fatality was one of the best parts of playing with friends - and is pretty much the only thing the loser had to look forward to lol.

Super long key combo to swaying opponent...low kick to the shin.

Might as well let the AI play the game for you then.. Took me a long time and pockets full of quarters to pull of all of the players moves in mk1/2 in the arcade. Many sweep kicks and upppercuts for fatalities when i started. But felt damn good to get them all.
