Have you ever gotten around to trying out a dedicated fightstick for fighting games?

I myself use a fight stick for all fighting games except for MK.  Something about holding a block button on a stick bugs me.  And if its between the xbox controller and the DS4 I gotta agree with Angelv there, PS4 is the place to purchase.

That, and some times I don't want to use a fight stick when it's late due to noise.

Anyway, I think the art direction and design of the characters in the MK game is more appealing to me than in any previous MK.
I'm mainly interested in Scarlet. So this may be the first MK game I play since MK3.

Didn't even know it was coming out on the Switch. I'll likely be getting this on PS4 myself. Good for you, though, as long as you don't pull a "nevermind, the Switch version is inferior" several pages later. :P

Edit: Added an emoji to express how this is somewhat me joking, but also just wanting it for the record in case I'm right.

For the record MK makes me think of Mario Kart so at first I was like Mario Kart 11 is coming?! Just like AC means Animal Crossing and not Assassin's Creed to many of us haha. Ah confusion.

Yep. And GOW for either God Of War/Gears Of War is another classic.



Chinese food for breakfast

 

Its better if you wait until they release MK11 gameplay on the switch.
No gameplay of switch version with so close to release !?

ill get it on switch if its not a download code in a box lol.

have to be careful these days.

...and Boom!

just like that, it might as well be.  6g on cart with a 20+g day one update.

Wish these companies would either charge a tad more to make up for the larger cart, or just go full digital. I'm so irritated

I guess, for collectors or lovers of physical media...at least there is a cart and you can actually own it, sell it, give it away.

/Sigh

Haha, same here.

Anyway, I more than likely won't get any version of Mortal Kombat 11 because while the game looks kind of funny with the over the top finishers, I doubt it will have gameplay that will interest me for very long. It's not that I think MK is a bad fighter, it's that I generally feel like I am done with fighting games in under half an hour, they're not really my thing outside of a few minutes here and there at the arcade about 20-30 years ago.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Switch is the obvious platform for every game that I can play casually with friends, because I can take it to friends houses easily.
Whenever I get MK11, will be on switch.

I want to get MK11, but not at launch. They'll do the same thing they did with X. 20% of the characters will be locked behind DLC at launch. Then by the time the game is finally finished two years from now it will be 30% of the characters locked behind DLC. I'd be fine if they just launched it and waited six months for more DLC. But they are making characters like Shang Tsung DLC, which is ridiculous. That's like making Mario DLC for Smash Bros. WB games has always been a money grubbing publisher, and it hurts the otherwise great games made by their developers.

I'm gonna be "that guy" but Shang Tsung is not the Mario of the Mortal Kombat universe, Scorpion would be it (a case could be made for Sub-Zero too).



Signature goes here!

True. Shang Tsung is more like Kirby or Samus. It's still ridiculous having him as a DLC character though.

Right?

I mean, who isn't excited about that MK AC crossover?  They've done it once and I'm sure they'll do it again.  And depending on what label you give each that draws up an assortment of images.
