    Yeah, Story Mode Kronika had me screaming like Shao Kahn back in MK9 again while Tower Mode Kronika is far more reasonable unless you're going for higher difficulties. I finished Story Mode and while I loved it I'm sure it'll be a while before we get another, I wonder how things will be. Perhaps an Outworld focused entry would be a good starting point.

    The Watchtower - A thread for all comics

    Speaking of The Authority, the latest issue of The Wild Storm finally sees the gang all together for the first time against a Skywatch assault on Earth out in the sticks. Jack has a panic attack, Angie goes heavy on the explodo with Apollo while Shen tries to convince the Midnighter that they're all on the same side. And as for Jenny? ..Jenny does not mess about. In other news, I was ever so slightly concerned at the last page of Doctor Aphra #31. I haven't been so glad to see a Next Issue page in quite some time. I wasn't too enamoured with the latest Vader: Dark Visions but after seeing that hilarious butthurt screed Sean linked to earlier, I like it a lot more now.

    The Alien films

    Kind of a low bar to clear, admittedly but 'Specimen' is comfortably the best Alien film since Aliens. In 10 minutes they managed to make me more concerned and tense for that lady and her dog than all the characters from the other post-Aliens flicks combined. Good dog.

    To be fair, the 'shitload' of in-game currency they're gonna give is only 500k koins and a thousand souls. At 100 per soul box, that's only 10 soul boxes they're giving unless they're also drastically reducing the cost of the boxes from 100 to 10 or something. And Hearts remain the real stumbling block, most of those chests are 250 hearts a pop, which is hideously expensive given how few you tend to accrue. Just make most of the basic outfits/tints be available and keep a select few elder skins for tower completion or the heart chests, people just wanna have fun dressing up their crazy murderninjas and taking them online to kick ass/get their ass kicked.

    Major problem with the always online thing, however - I'm kinda screwed at the moment as the Krypt DC'd *just* as I was using one key item to gain another - it registered using the key but didn't give me the follow up key that's required to...open another door to get another key. So right now I am, as they say, boned. On a more positive note, Johnny is the best, and I randomly brutalitied Shao Kahn without even trying earlier so hurrah!

    BRUTALITY Okay guys, time to start dropping your best puns for your character variations. I expect only the best. D’Vorah - Bees, Louise

    I haven't but I've seen mixed reports elsewhere. Some people are fine, others had some weird issue where it took aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaages to unpack the files for install, some frame rate and hair texture weirdness on max settings, and a thing where PS4 controlles weren't being recognised or something if you installed some PS4 for Windows application or something?

    Yeah, it's mindboggling that they would ditch Tricia Helfer for her, she couldn't act if her life depended on it. I am kinda praying for her to get patched out at some point like the dude in Destiny was. Similarly, nothing against Raiden's current VA who does a fine job but I'd love a Lambert voice pack with a "Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh" taunt move that I would just spam all day. FINISH HIM! "Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh" "Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh" "Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh" "Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh" "Heh-heh-heh-heh-heh" "Raiden wins."

    Yeah, I’m a little over halfway through it and it’s wonderful and leaves me wishing Capcom would come up with a story mode as satisfying. Although I was gutted about the fate of one particular character in the Outworld arena but it’s accompanied by an equally FUCK YEAH! moment that left me with a big grin anyway. Also, Johnny and Johnny being dicks to each other, and Scorpion and Sub-Zero being superchums is everything I could have hoped for. Had a little wander around the Krypt, loved seeing all those MK 1 locations from another perspective and Shang Tsung’s little loredumps. Not bothered opening much yet, waiting for the patch to tweak things. Really want to get the ninja crews unmasked looks asap though.
  10. The more I think about it, the more I expect everyone except Jaime and Arya to die next week. Maybe the Hound might make it, or maybe the gag will be Cleganebowl will be between two undead monstrosities.

    I am at work when I could be playing Skarlet and exsanguinating suckers, this is intolerable. Only did the first couple of story mode chapters last night but love love loved Kotal laying down the piss when _the big man_ is dragged out of the past and demands to know what's going on. Kotal Kahn is cool as hell, as far as other dimensional warlords go.

    NRS have already addressed the Krypt/Towers of Time situation, they're going to patch it to improve it anon. Man, Frost makes Sub-Zero look kinda lame in comparison. She's actually selling me on the 'make yourself into a soulless roboninja' thing, she seems to have... ..the Best of Both Worlds.
  13. GoT Suicide Mission decision time. If last week was the reunion, this was everyone making their peace before their doom, I really dug it. Expecting next week to either be a complete bloodbath or just clear out a lot of minor/side characters, with maybe one big name shocker. Question: does the obsidian one shot the zombies or just the head honchos who look like they stepped of the side of a metal fan's van? Might it not be better to make lots of arrowheads with it than melee weapons?

    Alien: Isolation

    It is the greatest, most beautiful game I will never get more than a third of the way into.
