The Aquatic Ace
I put MKX in yesterday and it got me to thinking. You know how Shinnok had to be unlocked by completing the story mode? Does anyone know if Brainiac will be treated the same way?
How does that make sense? If you're playing story mode, you're going to be playing who they want you to play regardless, so it makes no sense to have him locked in 1 v 1.He's probably the main antagonist. (Just my guess. That isn't confirmed.) It would make sense for him to be locked, at least from a gameplay perspective.
I didn't say it was beneficial for competition, I said it made sense from a gameplay perspective. Not only does it provide incentive for a player to involve themselves in the story, the game rewards you with the ability to use the very force you were trying to defeat in the narrative.How does that make sense?

And if people don't want story spoilers in character dialogue, they don't have to lab him or play online until they're ready. OR they can skip the dialogue (or hopefully turn it off via options).
All you're doing, when locking characters behind a story mode, is handcuffing players that don't want to play that mode (like me).
