An insightful article about developers suffering from PTSD after their work on MK11:

https://kotaku.com/id-have-these-extremely-graphic-dreams-what-its-like-t-1834611691

I'm not sure if it is a good or bad thing, but after being utterly reviled by MK's gore for a long time I now have somehow numbed in regards to it. If you see a fatality for the 20th time it doesn't shock you as much anymore. I still wished that stuff wasn't in the game or that you could simply turn it off in the game settings.
The developers are of course affected way worse, the article talks about them having to study murder or car crash victims or watching animals being slaughtered for reference. That's just sick and no wonder they are getting sick after being confronted with that for months, even years.

At first I was gonna be like...really..ptsd from making MK fatalities but they actually had to study car crash victims and animal slaughter?! I couldn't do that, Even just seeing images of that randomly on the internet..It really stays with you those images. So yeah having to study that stuff for months/years I could imagine giving you ptsd.

Apparently ppl are guessing dlc is coming in around two weeks (when MK11 has been on stores for around 4 weeks since that’s the pattern IJ2 and MKX followed for DLC). Shang Tsung can’t drop quick enough... so excited to see his animations for whenever he transforms into the rival!

( The faces though I disagree with, The faces just do look much better in MK11 )
I have to agree as well. After playing the game for a bit, NRS nailed the face department.

...and I am jumping on the Jade Bandwagon. God she is amazing in this game. What's funny was that last night, I was playing as her on one of the Time Towers and I had her on AI accidently. She was killing them with her pole combos!

Jade is a lot of fun to play, especially with delia's dance, pole vault and edenian spark (not a fan of her tournament variations). She also has some of the best customization options in the game! Except for her revenant skins, those have awful color variations but no one cares about revenant skins anyway lol

I have her story mode color. Now I need is the maskless option, might cost me a arm and a leg, literally. I do agree with the Revenant skins for not only her but also Kitana, Liu Kang and Kung Lao. They are horrible and I'm tired of seeing them. And I don't know why NRS gave the okay for make the Revenant skins as default for these characters, when they weren't default costumes for the latter 3 in MKX. Hell, they showed Kitana as human in this game's own commercial.

It will cost you 25k (to buy the Jade character tower) and not much more. :) It's a reward in the third tower of her level one character tower. It's the easiest maskless option to get in the game. Even I have it already, lol, and I'm a total MK noob.

It's okay to use the AI. ;) The game grind was designed that way. How does one even accidentally have the AI on? XD

I wonder If Sindel will at all look like she did in MK9?

Gonna guess no, I really liked Sindel's outfits in MK9 to but hopefully it will still be nice in MK11. Just cause she's older..*cough* like 100,000 years old *cough* doesn't mean she can't be fierce.

...I really really wish that we were getting more female characters as dlc in MK11 but...*sigh*..again the female characters get the boot in favour of having 500 thousand guest characters. There's Sindel and Sheeva and...I genuinely think that's it...out of like 8 dlc characters...

We're getting at least 12 DLC characters (18 is actually quite possible at this point) so I'm sure there will be 1-2 more female characters. Sareena is a safe bet and I think we will also get someone unexpected/obscure like Ashrah or Nitara. Even Khameleon's return wouldn't surprise me, they brought back fucking Tremor so anything is possible.

Wait really? 12 or even possible 18? So that list that leaked of the dlc characters was just the first pack then I guess?

The first Kombat Pack will have 6 characters and that's confirmed. The second Kombat Pack will also have 6 characters for sure. The game files mention 19 dlc characters (that includes Shao Kahn) so it would make sense to release 3 kombat packs of 6 characters each. Also last month they said that they have YEARS of content planned.
