Why don't they lean into Gera's time powers more? Why does he rip their skin off? Anyone can do that.

He should use his time powers to rapidly age them until they decay into dust. Basically the opposite of a babality.

But in this day and age where so much work goes into a character, why would they not make them playable if they went to the effort of making it so you can fight against them?

I really doubt you'll battle her at all. Just her goons. She's probably relegated to cutscenes.
They already confirmed she’s the game’s boss character. MKX was only 4 years ago, and they put effort into making Corrupted Shinnok, giving him his own fatality, without him being playable too.

MKX had a non playable boss, as did MK9. You don’t know what you are talking about.

You see Geras and Barakas 2nd fatality in this

Geras one is fucked up
Ok, I watched all of them. I thought MKX was pretty abhorrently disgusting with its fatalities and this is literally 10 times worse. Like, its at the point where when people who aren't into video games see this and make judgments, I can't blame them at all.

That would be great. In fact I would love it if he could do Babalities. That way they'd finally make sense and you'd get to see all the babies even though he's the only one who could perform it.

... Okay? Would the same people make the same judgements about seeing hammer horror films? What is the point you're trying to make here?

My god.

That second Geras fatality is messed up. Even I feel like that one was a bit much.

Just, goddamn. CALM DOWN, Geras!

Do you only get access to the beta with a digital pre-order, or with physical pre-orders too?
Both.

However it remains to be seen if BestBuy will be timely with the distribution of the codes for retail pre-orders from there.

They are currently 3 for 3 for screwing up my digital pre-order bonuses.

At this rate I should probably pre-order somewhere else but then that would mean losing out on my 20% discount.

Maybe their system is intentionally screwing up so people stop buying games there. I mean remaining GCU members. That's my conspiracy theory.

Thanks for the replies... was just about to order then realised I'm away the entire weekend of the beta, doh!
Ah well, at least I won't have to wait long for the full game.

Conspiracy theory: to avoid confusion, Terminas was renamed Geras after NRS finalized Terminator for DLC.

The voice of Raiden is now the voice of the navigation system in all future tesla cars.

Expect every single Tesla car's navigation to fuck up constantly.

I got my pre-order code right when I placed my order, about a month or two ago.

It's possible that the extra slots are placeholders for when the first wave of DLC is revealed before release, so I'm still not going to get my hopes up for bonus characters.

I just remembered that the Injustice 2 site had a bunch of locked boxes that ultimately didn't mean anything.
