Her face looks different lol a little. But anyway got the skin but yeah our fears were right nrs being greedy since the pack today only comes withb2 skins red and blue. Which means they'll be doing the same shit they pulled with the klassic female ninjas. They'll offer the alternate colors as the week goes on...

too bad i dont have enough time crystals pfff
that is why skipping KL it's never a good idea, i honestly don't do it for the costumes, i do it for the krystals.
When this subject was brought up the last KL was still running, and i checked real quick and saw the Kano costume, so i got it, then i did some math and noticed i would be short on money IF this costume was to be up next, so i played my heart out until i reached god rank, now i have enough Krystals for two rounds of this bundle.

I know costumes in KL are not worth the trouble, but you should play to get them, krystals however, it's good to have as many as possible.

I realized this late, reason why i don't have classic Kitana and Jade because i skipped KLs and didn't bother to push to go far, so i didn't had enough for all classics outside of Skarlet of course.

And you don't even need to play everyday even if you work or have a live, set a goal, try to enter a rank each day you play, or at least travel half way, once you reach you goal it doesn't matter if you want to stay at the top, you can just quit and don't bother with it at all, because the game will reward you with your highest achieving position instead of the last one.

If you look that way KL doesn't look that bad.

Or of course depending on how bad you want the outfits, gear etc in the store you can buy time Crystal's with real money. Gotta love the choices. Grind and get stressed out for time Crystal's where you may just have enough I'd you're lucky or be forced to buy it with real money, but without the stress of grinding, kl etc.

Ahh, how I miss the days when nrs weren't so greedy when we could unlock everything by playing various modes or taking our time.

The costume makes her look more like a man than usual. Why does she have a jaw like Ivan Drago? NRS needs to stop with these box headed bitches lmao
She has 2 faces in the game. One where she looks younger and 2nd where she looks older. It's the case with one or two of her base outfits.

Btw:

@Raider Ah ha so I wasn't seeing things, I thought her face looked a bit different in this outfit compared to some others. I hope her 2nd and 3rd bundles are way cheaper than the first one.

And they include her last outro to jack up the price except for those who have played Skarlet all the way thru.

Some folks just want the costume and just later get the outro in the game....but nope.

Yeah, I hear ya that bugs me. I don't even play her lol. I did at first, I may pick her up again but I just want the outfits. The only thing literally they gave us for free from the start in this game without worrying are the moves in kustomization but it's essentially moot as you can't even use them seriously/competitively...lol so what's the point? :( I agree with ya.

Same for me. When you reach demi-god, you'll get 1100 krystals at the end of the season. Almost the price of a special pack in the Store.

I'm glad everyone else can finally get these great skins, even if the cost of them can seemingly be endlessly debated.

However my major gripe (and whilst it doesn't affect me since I got her as a DLC code) is that these releases, like the classic female ninjas and Cangaceiro Kano, are only downloadable to the profile you're playing on. Originally however, Kold War and Cangaceiro, if packaged with your game in the box, are proper DLC that will be available on all your system profiles and therefore available for offline two player, much like the Halloween skins, the classic male ninjas, movie Shang Tsung etc.

The fact that the offline two player mode doesn't let player 2 utilise the customised characters of the profile you're playing on is already annoying enough (at least on PS4, please correct me if it's different on Xbox, Switch and PC), but the fact that skins that have previously been released as console-downloads are now being re-issued as mere profile-downloads just feels a bit of an unfair downgrade to players.

Wow I had literally never noticed that, since I've always had her masked for every skin except the short haired one! Obviously with the classic old school characters it was part of the story and impossible to miss, but didn't realise such a newcomer like her had two face ages too, a lovely little touch. :cool:




Sooooo.... now when are we getting Gold Demon Scorpion? :D

Who knows, I'll tell ya this much though the Skarlet skin seems in way higher demand than the Pirate Kano skin.

Sorry not being in any way sarcastic towards you here (so hope it doesn't come across that way), just jovial....

... but this is just my reply to that as a general red-blooded assumption as to why haha :D ...

Male Australian thug covered in tattoos with bad haircuts, who routinely does a filthy piss before matches, who has already had an MK3 DLC skin released (and already had a better updated version of it by default in the game), a robot DLC skin released, has been in nearly every MK game since 1992, is categorically represented as a scumbag in every iteration, has a Brazilian territory skin based upon him in local 19th century South American bandit-wear that has no cultural significance for residents of most of the world...

16571

... VS. new-comer Skarlet, a beautiful vampire-like femme fatale who's been an enigma since 1994, debuts for the first time as a fully-fledged non-DLC character in a game whereby they practically announced "NO SEXINESS ANYMORE!" in a franchise that was becoming renowned for its sexualised representation of its female fighters, who's only got really two variants of costume in the base game (desert witch and dominatrix), both of which cover her full body head to toe with nothing but a cleavage window on two costumes to even show any hint of flesh, now has a skin readily available in a short trench coat and thigh-high f**k-me-boots and very little else, in a fetishised military outfit that has sinister cultural WW2 and Cold War significance to anyone who grew up in the 20th century Europe, that's probably one of the most blatantly sexualised in the game...

16572

I can certainly tell you why she's far more appealing to me than Cangaceiro Kano ;)

Yeah man not saying you're wrong, but I know all that lol being an oldschool MK player since MK 1 :D:p Kano having the metal eye and while not exactly like a pirate eye patch similar, as he replaced his eye went one step further lol getting tech put in which is cool.

Well, yeah lol I mean obviously aside from the sexier look of the latter than the former, I think Skarlet's look is more unique with the alternate skins than Kano being a typical thug, criminal which pretty much Pirates are lol anyway so it's very FITTING for Kano(see what I did there? haha) Also, Skarlet's voice actress goes perfectly well with that outfit. I mean I know now days anything dare showing skin is considered "sexualized" to some folks, but I personally have no issues with it as MK chicks have had sexy outfits before and it's just a game so I personally don't look that far into it. At the end of the day it's all 3D models, renders and pixels but with all the graphical improvements over time I think some people tend to forget that it's still just a video game at the end of the day. That outfit has been in various movies over the years as well from foreign to spoofs, cosplays and of course well the naughty movies lol.

Ooh you've reminded me of another point there, and this does actually quite simply come down to personal taste, that for me I prefer Kano as simplistic-looking as possible. I was really disliking how ridiculous his eye and outfit was becoming in every game, this for me is my ideal Kano (though I wouldn't say no to a classic gi being released for him), which aside from the Klassic Kano Prime eye coming from a Golden Kronika Vault, this was all readily available in the base game:

16573

No hair, no beard, no tattoos, no glowing eye, just a nice and simple criminal scumbag with a metal plate in his head.

Therefore the release of another over-the-top and silly looking Kano held no appeal whatsoever for me.

Skarlet on the other hand, I was literally struggling to find preferred outfits for, both styles were so "meh" to me that until Klassic Ninja was released and I finally got my hands on a DLC code for Kold War, I literally didn't have a Skarlet I loved, least of all particularly liked. However by comparison I had a Kano I thought was awesome and perfect. So therein alone lies the big reason for me to have wanted Skarlet's two new skin styles so bad; I literally found very little appealing about her aesthetically until they were released. Whereas now, I can happily enjoy four very distinct outfits and styles on her (and that's also increased my appreciation for the base skins I have in my selection):

16574

Plus she looks hot as fu... so that's an added bonus :D

That said if they released a Richard Divisio-modelled Kano from MK1 in a gi with a non-glowing Odessa's eye, or a perfectly movie-modelled Trevor Goddard from the movie, I'd probably be quite desperate to own those ones too haha. But again, that's because they're simple and how I like the character to be.

Oh yeah I agree, I mean the only other alternate look I like is one similar to his MK 1 Trevor look with the beard, hair but otherwise Kano. The tattoos, the fancy Drago beard in MK X and all these newer looks I agree over the top too much. One look I'd be curious to see I admit however would be bald Kano with just a beard, so he'd pretty much look like Jason Statham lol.

But yeah dude for sure, Skarlet's outfits to me have way more appeal and not just saying that as a straight dude she literally has far more diverse looks though I hate her super woke covered default, I will never wear that outfit when I use her lol. She looks like a star wars rebel or something rather than an mk character, but ones with longer hair, ponytail, klassic and the Kold War are amazing.

I personally felt more limited in choice; don't like the ones with the big shoulder pads and fringe, like Blood Pixie... because the haircut and colour reminds me of my ex-wife :confused:

Ugh getting horrid flashbacks of her in a PVC corset... where's the vomit emoji haha.

Well that could be a reason. Was about to say the longer haired ones arent that bad. I dont like the short haired catwoman look. Then I read that that one reminds you of your ex wife so that's a good reason not to like it lol
