Scorpion vs. Baraka
157 completed the game on Normal difficulty.
Finished Konquest Mode - and how incredibly lame it was. It follows the less-than-proud tradition of such sub-games as Tekken Force. I only played through the damned thing to obtain new fighters for the main attraction in MK:D, namely the Kombat Mode. MK:D is a very good fighting game, with lots of moves and complex combos. Konquest Mode, however, is horrible. You run around in a boring world, without any means for interaction, except pushing people out of the way, hitting them over the head, or pressing X to hear their one-liner. The maps are quite large, so this running around becomes extremely boring. The events in Konquest Mode are mainly character tutorials, which are lame to get through, and when you finally are put into a real fight, you may get pummeled because you haven't learned anything from the tutorials. The story is sometimes a tiny bit interesting, even though I figured out 'the great plot twist' in the very beginning. Other times, however, the story devolves into pure nonsense. I will give you an example. The main character, Shujinko, is out late at night, looking for Hotaru, the 'Chief of Police' in the Order Realm. When he finds him, Hotaru informs him that he has broken a curfew, and he arrests him on sight. Shujinko is transported to a prison in the Order Realm, where he awaits trial for 20 years or so. Shujinko actually grows older and attains a long beard in prison. Then, suddenly, his guards are attacked and killed by an assassin. The now elderly Shujinko escapes from the prison, finds Hotaru, who tries to convince Shujinko that he would actually testify to the fact that Shujinko did not break the law at all (even though Hotaru arrested him himself). But now, that he's escaped from the prison, he would have to sentence him to death. The old Shujinko rapidly turns into a young woman and kills Hotaru. Afterwards, he finds a Kamidogu (key to another Realm) lying around somewhere. The author may have had a tumor or something, because that is just stupid. But anyways, its done, and I've got Zombie Liu Kang to play with now :).
