The Week In Games: Get Over Here!!!

Illustration for article titled The Week In Games: Get Over Here!!!

It’s time once again for decapitations, burning flesh and other grisly deaths. Mortal Kombat 11 is out this week. In the words of Scorpion “Get over here and play my game. Thank you.”


I love me some Mortal Kombat. I’m not a huge fighting game guy and I’m not great at them, but I always enjoy the story modes in the Injustice and Mortal Kombat games. These games are also perfect to play with friends and family who aren’t great at games but want to have some fun. We just load up the random modifiers, get some drinks flowing and have a blast.

Beyond Mortal Kombat 11, the PS4 exclusive Days Gone is the other big AAA release this week. After what feels like years, this game about zombies freakers and motorcycles is finally coming out. I hope it’s good! For Switch owners looking for a big RPG to play, Dragon’s Dogma is headed to Nintendo’s portable console later this week. Also coming to Switch this week, a new Steamworld game and Box Boy! and Box Girl!

I really, really, really didn’t like MKX (the campaign was great, everything else...not so much), and Injustice 2 left a horrible taste with it’s insistence on shoehorning in needless RPG elements and fucking microtransactions/loot boxes, as well as a massively disappointing dlc roster (sans the Turtles, they were perfect).

That said, I’ll be damned if MK11 doesn’t have me genuinely pumped. I played in both betas and it feels like they learned some lessons from their last two titles, scaling back on most of the stuff that turned me off both of those games. We’ll see how it shakes out...I’ve already got it pre-loaded and I know the campaign will be worth the price of admission...I just hope everything else is as tight as it seems (I did NOT buy the Gold edition, as Injustice 2 burned me so bad that I will never buy the season pass for a Netherrealm game again without knowing every character first).
