Are you not entertained!?
From dial-a-combo to some sort of Street Fighter-like. Source.
The Esports focus that the GS leak mentioned was in regards to the online component of the game. not the entirety of the game itself, just an FYI.Well it's Shujinkydink and he says it's someone close-ish to the development team therefore he can't share their name... but I can't say that I believe this. Dialing and set combos have been apart of NRS games forever, not only MK, but even the Injustice series is doing it. I don't see them switching to try to rip off Street Fighter. The only thing I would say that gives this a little credibility is that the leaked description from GameStop Italy mentioned how the game was going to be focused towards eSports, but you can make an eSports-ready game without it being SF so I doubt that's what it was hinting at.
Maybe it's just not how it sounds, and really it's just that there will be links as well as set kombos. Maybe we will be getting reduced set kombos but more of a freeform combo system like SF links and/or KI auto combos. I don't know, but I just don't think it's going to be entirely like SF assuming this is true.
This, if they are gonna change it it’s more about animations then anything else.Cannot say I'd be disappointed if NRS evolved their stilted combo system beyond the air-juggle-centric, canned dial-a-combo staple they've gone with since c.MK3.
It's felt increasingly incongruous to produce games with superlative, realistic presentation, but stymied by robotic attack systems, as the games have gotten progressively more mature visually and narrative-wise. Indeed, I think the oft-heard complaint about "Mortal Kombat's animations" has a lot to do with how the combo systems have worked. In the very least, the latter does not help hide the 'stiff' animations (compared to some counterpart games) that some gamers find disconcerting.
So, seeing as they're using UE⁴. there is a better than a snowflake's chance in Netherrealm that NRS might freshen up the game's mechanics. However, given the leaks so far have made little allusion to thus happening -- rather, hinting more at Injustice styled "supers" and SFV style ("crush counter") "krushing blows", than anything relating to the core mechanics of the game changing (something they would surely trumpet from the highest hilltop, were it a reality) -- I'm not expecting it to happen.
Dink is getting pretty heavy on the click-bait, and it's kind of driving me away. A shame since I otherwise like the guy.Blatant clickbait nonsense. The fact that over half-way in and he hasn't even mentioned anything about the ALL CAPS SUPER IMPORTANT INFO in the title should tell you it's nonsense. Shukinkydink doesn't know anyone working on the game who would give him info
Yeah, I used to really like his videos. Hadn't seen any in a while, but while watching this I was thinking "geez, he's turned into one of those clickbait youtubers", such a shameDink is getting pretty heavy on the click-bait, and it's kind of driving me away. A shame since I otherwise like the guy.
It's too bad, but unfortunately I think it's what Youtube and their monetization policy forces people to do. I don't like it, but I can't really blame the youtubers for doing what they can. Nature of the beast and all that.Yeah, I used to really like his videos.

I disagree slightly, that it forces people to make shitty clickbait. I do think quality content creators (K&M for example), will still get plenty of views due to their great content.It's too bad, but unfortunately I think it's what Youtube and their monetization policy forces people to do.
