So I’ve been playing through Mortal Kombat X, and I have to express amusement at the way injuries only seem to count during cutscenes. I’ll admit, I’ve been out of the loop on the Mortal Kombat series for quite some time, so it’s likely this isn’t a new development for the franchise, but it really seems funny to me the way the characters can stab each other in the face, snap each other’s necks, and rip each other’s organs out, and yet once the battle comes to an end, the two will resume talking as if nothing happened. Yet in some cutscenes, a person will die or suffer terrible injury from actions that aren’t anywhere near as brutal as the fights themselves. What makes it more confusing is that the story mode doesn’t allow fatalities for (I guess) this very reason, yet the X-ray movies are almost every bit as violent. Oh Mortal Kombat, you really bring the logic.¬†Ah well. Vidja games.
