  1. You get the game for preordering, and it won't be on the marketplace for a couple weeks.
  2. Yeah, there's context to everything, but Mortal Kombat X does have teenagers and regular humans in it. It's not just mythical creatures. In fact, the photo of the fist through the head is Jax getting killed by his own daughter... I'd argue that insanely gory and detailed patricide by a teenage woman is just as contextually reprehensible to a review board as a zombie man cutting through some teens. It's all a matter of ones personal perspective though. That's kind of the challenge with ratings boards, one person might have my opinion and another might have yours and either one could drastically effect how a game's rating turns out.
  3. Mortal Kombat is mo capped too.... and not all the kills have magical powers behind them. Ratings also don't take feasibility of violence into consideration when rating things. Otherwise every game company would just make their violence implausibly over-the-top... More importantly, are you really gonna try and say the jason pic, where the blade is just kinda going through the character and there's a small bit of blood, is somehow really worse than either of the MK pics?
  4. Lol, The last two Mortal Kombat games make those Faces of Death snuff movies from the early 2000's look like kids cartoons...
  5. Ummm, no... Mortal Kombat has highly graphic depictions of disembowelment, murder, and gore including showing the inner body parts of people during fatalities. This game doesn't get anywhere near that level of detailed violence. Not to mention the sexuality in Mortal Kombat is waaaaaaay more pronounced and over the top.
  6. Freddy has essentially omnipotent powers within the dream world. They would need to create an entire game from scratch to fully take advantage of Freddy's different powers compared to Jason. Just throwing Freddy into this game world would feel dumb and cheesy. Not to mention the licensing fees would be costly, and they'd need a huge amount of dialogue recorded for Freddy cause he's much more talkative than the average horror villain.
  7. Outlast 2 came out this week. It's keeping me somewhat distracted, but probably won't last more than a week or two. Reviews have it pegged at only 10-13 hours of gameplay. Then it's basically all Rocket League to hold me off till May 26th...
  8. I've got all three but my PC is in need of some upgrades to be able to run the game beyond low settings. I'll probably be playing on Xbox mostly cause that's what most of my friends are on, but I'm grabbing a digital PS4 version as well. I'll only have the Savini Jason on the Xbox though.
  9. I've been helping drive the train along with Jpops and a few others here since Oct 13th, 2015. Haven't hopped off the train yet and can't wait till next month to finally be playing the game. The three axe weapons isn't too disappointing for me as long as each have their own kill animations, rather than rehashing them from model to model. All the Jason's need to have a weapon with a reasonable amount of length to effectively hack at the counselors and there's only so many of those types of weapons that exist in the context of being at a campsite. I figured at least one weapon was going to be on more than one Jason. I thought it would be the somewhat iconic machete though, not the axe. Either way, I don't think it will be too much of an issue since all the Jasons will play differently, even if they're holding similar weapons.
  10. I was just wondering, now that we've got all the counselors created and the game is ready to launch, who were the guys that paid to be in the game? Any of you wanna post a photo to compare your game avatar to you in real life? Would be interesting to see how closely the resemblances are.
  11. Part 2 has always been kinda near and dear to me. I've always liked him most as a haphazard mountain man using everything around him to get by, including a potato sack to cover his face. I'm really looking forward to giving the Savini exclusive model a run as well. I'm sure I'll play as all of them at some point though.
  12. You became a Star Wars fan from playing the beta to Battlefront...? That's like becoming a Nirvana fan cause you liked an interview they did in Rolling Stone...
  13. It took a two word google search to come up with the fact that Kickstarter, in it's own FAQ, doesn't provide refunds. I highlighted areas that contradict your statements. Can Kickstarter refund the money if a project is unable to fulfill? No, Kickstarter doesn't issue refunds. Transactions are between backers and creators directly. Creators receive all funds (less fees) soon after their campaign ends. Who is responsible for completing a project as promised? It's the project creator's responsibility to complete their project. Kickstarter is not involved in the development of the projects themselves. Kickstarter does not guarantee projects or investigate a creator's ability to complete their project. On Kickstarter, backers (you!) ultimately decide the validity and worthiness of a project by whether they decide to fund it.
  14. I remember seeing the same thing, not sure if it's mandatory though. What I remember reading was that essentially games have to release with two modes, a "base mode" and "pro mode" that supports the added power of the Pro in some capacity. From what I read, most developers hated it at first cause it added unexpected development time and costs to games that were almost complete. Most games got around this by adding the Pro mode as a day 1 patch so the game can still release on time and/or fit on the disc. This allowed the devs to work on completing the Pro features in the 20-30 days that the game is being printed and shipped out to the stores. That's not much of a concern now though since any future games will just be developed with the Pro support built into the expected development time. In the context of this game, you can probably expect the only support you'll get is maybe a better frame rate.
  15. Technically you backed an idea for a video game. That's all any kickstarter is, people backing a vision from a business and getting a discount, or other perks, for their faith in the creator's vision. Some projects turn out better than others, and some never end up turning out at all, but all kickstarter projects are just someone's idea hoping to draw in some fans. Don't believe me? here's the exact guidelines from Kickstarter. Who is responsible for completing a project as promised? It's the project creator's responsibility to complete their project. Kickstarter is not involved in the development of the projects themselves. Kickstarter does not guarantee projects or investigate a creator's ability to complete their project. On Kickstarter, backers (you!) ultimately decide the validity and worthiness of a project by whether they decide to fund it.
