Since competing at EVO 2015 in Mortal Kombat and getting my hands on testing out Street Fighter 5, I’ve been anxiously waiting for the Beta opportunities to pop on PS4. And so far, they’ve been delivering! Here I am testing out R. Mika and she’s shaping up to be a solid character! Your thoughts?
My sister from another mister Shayna “Queen of Spades” Basler joins me for an epic live stream! You may know Shayna from her time on Season 18 of UFC’s The Ultimate Fighter, but when she’s not in the cage she’s gaming. Tune in as she sits down next to me as I train for EVO 2015 on Mortal Kombat X. We review the game, my recent wedding where she was my best woman, and generally just enjoy life.
I decided to learn Scorpion for fun. My buddy lost his mind and felt that Scorpion is an unfair character and has crazy advantages. I explained to him that isn’t the case; he only has a few options because most of his gaming is done through vortex. He said he could learn Scorpion and do the same things I was doing AND beat me!
As you’ll see in this, it is not the character but the person behind the character. Not only do I beat him, but when my buddy moved to his main character Mileena , I beat her, too.
Don’t blame the character. Learn to point the finger at yourself if you’re having a hard time beating someone. Go into Training Mode in Mortal Kombat X and LEARN to beat the character. My buddy had to learn this the hard way. It wasn’t that Scorpion was overpowered; it was that I knew how to use Scorpion and he didn’t know how to beat it.
