There were eleven of them Mortal Kombat games. Do you believe it? The 1990s was so long ago. Since then, the fighting game has become a cruel institution, as colorful ninjas and sorcerers and special forces agents collide to snatch each other out in ugly martial arts tournaments.
But in the last decade Mortal Kombat went from just recognizable violent fighting games to really recognizable violent fighting games. And recently released Deadly Battles 11 Brings Home Trilogy with Story Mode, which extends across history and new ways to customize your characters, with different skills and equipment to make the drive more accessible and deep.
Expensive cutscenes and side (probably exploitative) site content is worth nothing if your fighting game doesn't have a solid list. Fortunately, Deadly Battles 11 gives you a diverse cast of combats to unleash your bloodlust. And look at each one of them. Today's Warrior: Scorpio.
Who are they?
You can argue who is the "main" character Mortal Kombat is, but Scorpion is objectively the most popular figure, face series. And it's easy to understand why. A vengeful fiery ninja emanates from hell. Although he fought with DC characters, his best analogue is probably Marvel's anti-hero Wolverine. And like Wolverine, Scorpion has a second life as a reformed old man, Hanzo Hasashi, who faces his past anger (literally thanks Mortal Kombat 11 & # 39; s time duplicates) and try to rebuild the Shirai Ryu family he lost.
Scorpion and Sub-Zero in the original Mortal Kombat It turned out that there is a lot to be gained from the same ninja of two different colors. His iconic "Get out of here!" An attacker from the creator of Ed Boon himself attacked the spear. Surprisingly, Scorpion will not receive its own game yet. But he appeared in all major games, made some Midway arcade portraits like NBA Jam, and was the first Mortal Kombat character to hop into Injustice. Virtually every new revelation Mortal Kombat It starts by showing you how Scorpion looks and plays.
Yellow always looked like a strange tame color for a ninja that constantly spews Hellfire. But Ermac already took the red ninja outfit. So my Scorpion has orange robes, spears and swords with more detailed flame details. Most of the moves I have chosen include that Scorpion is somehow on fire. Fireballs, burning dashes, Hell teleports and improved spinning attacks are the way I like an opponent.
How crude is mortality?
Scorpion, who has torn his mask to expose a burning screaming skull, remains one of the most shocking Mortal Kombat death. Probably will never be covered, but the team's props will at least rise to hellish violence. Scorpion burns the middle of the body and leaves the spine covered with embers. Then he cuts his head, kicks it and throws it with a spear through his mouth. I love the two acts of bloodshed are essentially unrelated.
