i have uh very little room to move here because we've got to got the microphone set up hopefully the audio will pick up this is my final video of my 20s yes i'm recording this on well yesterday for you guys who've seen it on the day of release uh the last day of my 20s because tomorrow i turn 30 and yeah basically i'm just here to give a bit of a talk about the mk11 critique i was going to put this at the end of the
00:32
video but i thought the video was [ __ ] four hours four minutes and like like you know like four milliseconds or 44 seconds i have to stop i'm putting this as a separate video and just kind of talk about the way i do these critiques and such so i'm checking this off because it's a bit too warm why were in the hoodie then [ __ ] you that's why so basically the critique i started working
01:05
on it i don't recall this is the thing is it's consumed my life so much since i started that it's become a blur it was either one month ago or two i don't recall but i've been working on it for so long that time barely exists uh i've not done much else since i started i've largely just been working on it because basically when the news came out that mk11's content cycle was finally over you know like six months after the last actual content
01:37
thanks netherrealm thanks for that thanks for keeping us informed but after that um i decided well now's the time to get started work on it well it wasn't necessarily straight away i did a bit of work on it obviously and every now and then i would think of something to say and write that down or need to write down put in the script later as far as actually working properly on the critique as like a major project like here's me writing it and recording and editing that talk that i decided to do pretty much as soon as i realized it'd be a really good date to release this on the 8th of october
02:08
because that's my 30th birthday and mk's 29th what better time for me to put out this big video people have been anticipating where i'm going to turn down the modern the modern incarnation of mk and call another arm out on the [ __ ] [ __ ] than my and mk's shared birthday yeah like if anything was going to make me believe in fate it would be that mk which is such a big part of my life has the same birthday as me that's weird right that was when i started doing it but that meant that i only had like a month or two to do it so i'd spend
02:39
pretty much full days just just working on that and not doing a whole lot else i mean obviously i had videos and stuff on me on the monitor watching stuff while i'm editing just to kind of keep you sane my typical audio recording session is typically about 20 to 30 minutes long right that's how i typically do things so don't wear my voice out too much with this sometimes especially with aftermath chapters because i tried to do all of one chapter in one session sometimes it'd be 40 minutes i
03:10
all told including the smaller ones towards the end just like little bits of pickups i ended up recording for like i think it was 40 sessions about 30 of them were full sized ones going for at least 20 minutes and then the later ones were a bit shorter but yeah that's a lot of audio and keep in mind when i record audio that's like usually about two-thirds of it is unusable it's either pauses that i'm removing breathe in flubs or just sometimes i get lost in the script and try to find where it was or sometimes i'm like well i've made a change to the
03:40
script because it's just better worded the way i found to say it so now i need to go back and change in the script so i can easily copy paste that to be the subtitles for the video i suppose more youtubers don't do it just copy paste the script i guess because you have to keep it updated but yeah just do it lazy [ __ ] uh it's been working on this almost non-stop i've had a few breaks here and there occasionally i'll uh play phasmaphobia with friends i went to watch some john williams music being played live i don't remember if it was this week or last week to be honest sunday it was on sunday yeah it was last
04:12
week or this week depending on whether you view sunday's the start end of the week whatever point is um i occasionally take breaks but because of how big you know this isn't a monumental task it's [ __ ] four hours long and so with it being such a huge undertaking i didn't know how long it was going to take to finish it so i was constantly like well if i don't work on it now i might not have enough time to finish it in time for the deadline to set for myself that's why there's less videos or less extra videos towards the end of the production cycle early on the review would be like i'll take a break for a
04:44
day or two work on this other video put that out and get back to the critique here though towards the end is just but what if i can't uh the video has been done for a few days now so if i'd taken a few more days out made a few more videos i might not have finished it in time if that was the case uh my plan was to split into four could you know because i edited it in four pieces hour one which is everything before the story hour two which is everything up to jade's chapter hour three which is the rest of the main
05:14
story our four is aftermath and the conclusion some of them are a bit over some are a bit under but yeah that's how it would have been released and you had this idea for the thumbnail the thumbnail is like a red sub-zero punching through a skull uh frozen skull and that that's like chunks of the uh mk 11 cover what i would have done is recorded that same fatality on devorah robocop and spawn to get different blood colors then each one be a different blood color i would have had like green for aftermath and like gray for
05:44
pre-story than like red for the for part one and the story and blue for part two or something like that but that's how i would have gone about it fortunately i didn't need to do that there anything else interesting to talk about about the critique other than how long it took well i'd like to thank bruce poets sonic rxd and true underdog gaming for looking over they i mean i didn't give them a ton of time i i didn't try to set like a deadline for anything but i said any chance you guys could look over these these four videos a total four hours now
06:15
granted when i sent them to those guys not only were they those videos 480 or 360p just so i could actually render them and upload them without it taking [ __ ] forever because the final video render took about five hours and the final upload was going to take even longer until i compressed it a bit with handbrake because it got to about i think it was like 15 20 in the span of like i think like 15 in three hours or something i was like well just in case
06:47
i'll see how long it will take me to upload a compressed version the compressed version a lot quicker because the video is like 20 gigabytes the compressed version is about nine yeah fortunately i was able to get it uploaded with a couple of days to spur and patrons got early access uh today of recording but yesterday of watching it doesn't really affect much by the time you see this because it'll already be out uh making this though it's kind of made me re-evaluate a few things one
07:18
never do this again never try and make one of these big videos all at once within with a set with a i'm going to have a goal here's what i'm going to try and aim for i mean the attempt was trying in for that not force myself to be nice if i could release it then but if not it's fine but i ended up deciding at some point that's when i have to release it never do that again if you're working on a video like this something this long don't don't make it this huge thing that you're working on constantly and set yourself a deadline
07:49
don't do that because it just it's draining you know it's last few days i've had little drive to work on other videos but i know i have to because while making this video i've not been working on other videos and because of the nature of it it's gonna get limited ads i don't know what's gonna how it's gonna do view wise obviously this video is potentially not go at least not for a while not gonna make back the money that was effectively lost in not making other videos instead of it so please share the video around to get more eyes on it so we can try and
08:19
recoup the losses as it were another thing i might change with regards to at least mk if not not necessarily all the netherrealm properties but at least with mk because i know i'll have more to talk about with mk compared to say injustice is i might not release the video might not make it after all the contents i might just do more like a shammy approach with like you did with um no man's sky because the way he did it was his the review of the base game then like a year later here's another review of what it is like now and something like that so like if i did this with 11
08:50
it would have been here's the base game maybe with like shang tsung and nightwolf at that point then year two would be a post aftermath and then year three would be just combat pack two and that's part the reason why i don't want to do stuff like that because you know you can never predict this stuff some people uh back when before was announced that the whole thing was over people would say well it's mk11 ultimate clearly it's over and they're thinking yes clearly a mortal kombat game having ultimate the title is an indication that
09:21
the content cycle is over like ultimate mortal kombat 3 the second of three iterations of mk3 you dopey [ __ ] shut the [ __ ] up shut the [ __ ] up [ __ ] you shut the [ __ ] up so yeah obviously it's impossible to tell when the content cycle of these games is going to be over netherrealms effectively it's like that meme why are you the way that you are that's what netherrealm is but i might not do these like this anymore you know
09:53
like if i did injustice to base game and justice 2 dlc i i can't imagine not have much to say about any of those guest characters whereas with mk i probably could have made a 10 20 minute video just about the combat pack one i mean you see that in the critique it's a lengthy sequence just about that the goal with these is to try and be accurate in the long run i want the video to be able to stand up i mean if i just make a video here's what the game's like after release here's some things to complain about well if they fixed it that criticism doesn't hold up anymore and
10:25
that's something i don't want but at the same time the longer put it off with extra content it could be something massive like this one i mean this is you know because they're all getting shorter each time it was like two hours and 10 minutes for the original and then the next one's like an hour and 45 for mkx injustice 2 is like an hour and a half and then you get to this it's [ __ ] four four hours so yeah it kind of books the trend and not just because of the dlc i mean even even without as much dlc as there was it still would have been three hours long or at least at least like two hours
10:54
45. so i don't want these videos to be these gargantuan processes to make but at the same time they kind of have to be so i'm a little torn that's why i'm not saying definitively one way or another whether i'll do it but my normal approach is waste all the contents out and then make it and people will still ask no matter how many times no matter how many places no matter how many ways i say when all the dlc is out that is when i will start work on the critique people still ask even while i'm working on it i've announced some work and i'll say where's the critique and if i complain about it or even bring it up some people go oh you're just
11:28
doing great for you like linkara when he did his history of power rangers video [ __ ] you so please once again with other netherrealm games with the new ip and with justice 3 or whatever those critiques will happen once all the dlc is out with mk i'm not decided yet i'll decide when the next game comes out so when mk's i'll make a decision and then i will let you know i want to let you know i assume i've not changed my mind unless i say outright that i have changed my mind please don't ask when these videos are coming out
11:59
combine that with how big and undertaking this was it's been four hours working off like a month or two almost non-stop doing very little else with my free time it's quite draining and so it creates a situation where i'm like you are sapping my will to work on it so please don't do that please don't ask when the thing is out and i appreciate people's curiosity i appreciate your excitement for the video but please don't do that don't i think the only other thing worth saying about the video is there's one
12:31
thing that i didn't actually really go into and that was because i noticed it very last minute like i was putting in the last few clips one of them is the part where i talk about the fact that hanzo is in the background of chapter 11 even though he's died in chapter 10. so you get to this part there he is in the background because they [ __ ] up with the cutscene and what i found while went back to record that shot was they updated it at some point at some point without telling anyone they updated the scene and fixed it so that
13:02
hanzo is there and it like with the uh the fact that they fixed raiden's amulet you know removed it from the story mode i didn't realize that until i was making the video you know when i re-watched the cut scenes to write the script that was cut scenes that that on youtube have been recorded like when the game first came out and then the footage i had is from around that time as well like it was would have been probably pre-patch so i had no idea i've been working on off this footage for like two years now i had no idea that they made these changes so maybe think
13:35
what if any other things have criticized about the mistakes they've made in the cutscenes might have been fixed i know for a fact they didn't fix any of the mk9 ones like when jade beats up shiva and shiva's costume changes between shots but then thinking about injustice one did they ever fix when they put the wrong hot girl in a cut scene in gotham maybe i mean the footage i'm working off is is pretty old as possible then with mk11 it's like well they fixed scorpion they fixed the reigning thing they didn't fix k9 i know for a fact they did not fix k-nose gear i mentioned that in
14:05
the critique it's going to be wondering is there anything else that i've mentioned that they might have changed any gear pieces or anything that i've just not noticed and they're thinking i have no idea rest assured i'm not leaving that out intentionally it's just that i didn't notice and didn't realize that they would ever patch any of the pre-rendered cutscenes until last minute when i was trying to make sure that i could render out this video that would take five hours to render and maybe longer to upload
14:35
so i'm not not being dishonest here it's just i would if i wouldn't have noticed if there are any please let me know um that could be worth bringing up in the video at some point but as far as i know i didn't miss any but maybe i did no so if i did let me know so of course this also raises the question you know the critiques have been i've been working on since 2016. pretty much all in order right you know um mk9 which yeah you might have noticed i switched over to calling mk9 in the critique i don't know why i didn't do it sooner i mean i stuck with 2011 because
15:07
the game is mortal kombat parentheses 2011. not mortal kombat 9 but with mk11 it's made things more confusing so sometimes i do slip up and say 2011 or mkl and when i mean the other and just reworking anyone getting confused when i switched talking about one and the other it's easier it's called mk9 with the um the cannonball i'm still working on about the different depictions of mk2 uh that was you know written and recorded prior to this i've got the audio for that pretty much all done that will continue using
15:39
2011 as the term because i can't be asked going back and re-recording all that but going forward i'm going to be calling it mk9 for simplicity's sake but yeah so i did mk9 in 2016 then 2017's injustice 2018 mkx uh 2019 injustice 2 2020 since mk11 wasn't done with this dlc yet well by the time the critique on the comic came out it turned out the content cycle was over they just didn't tell us because of that i did the comic instead now i'm all caught up you know netherrealm might put out a new game at
16:09
the start of next year that they've just not announced yet maybe we'll get an announcement at the game awards at the end of the year and then the game will come out in april so would that be the next critique maybe probably not but but this also raises the cost of the question is if i'm not doing that what will it be i'm not decided yet one possibility is tekken 7 which i mentioned like i think was in the mkx video i i mentioned uh tekken 7 would need to be criticized at some point um so that's a possibility some people have suggested the possibility of doing one for street
16:40
fighter 5. the issue with street fighter 5 is i only got into street fighter within in the last decade right you know and even then it took a while because i was like i'm going to get street fighter 4 when i think it was arcade edition came out because i'll get that and in the meantime i'll just read up on all the characters and figure out what all the plots were all the cast are so could be caught up in time for that and it's just good didn't get into it from through four i just wasn't really that into it with five though i did i was able to get more into it with street fighter v but
17:09
this isn't like mk i have been with mk since like 2002 or three now the series means a lot to me i'm very invested in the setting and the characters so it's easy for me to notice issues with the writing where things are just inconsistent or where things could be done better how this thing could have been done better because i have knowledge of the setting arguably more than some of the writers do but with some like street fighter it'd be harder to do something like that i couldn't just say one issue people come out with is a chun li is really weak willed and
17:40
impulsive in this story which is apparently incorrect i can believe that would be the case there's not much i can do to really address that or put into words where that issue that's an issue like compared to prior games so doing a street fighter 5 one would be would be tough second seven though i've been into tekken even longer than i've been into mk i mean i did drop off a bit after uh when tekken 3 came out because i didn't play three then on ps2 i got um tag tournament one and then later on i got five so i got properly back into tech in
18:11
the soul calibur around 2005 or six and so i was i was back in on those series so tekken is one i could do because tekken 7 there's a lot to criticize about that story and i will be doing a wasted potential at some point i could maybe do a dead or a live one because i've been into doa since like 2001. yeah so something like that i could do it could criticize doa5 but doa 5 doesn't infuriate me neither does doa 6's quite the way tekken 7 does because tekken 7 story is waffle that's a contender that's a
18:43
contender to be the next big critique but you know it also depends on what netherrealm puts out we don't know what the next thing would be no there's always rooms that would be an mk12 there's apparently some leaker might be an mk12 and it's gonna continue from aftermath and undo the sindel retcon or whatever undo the sindel retcon for me is like the first sign that a leak is [ __ ] you know this is like you see certain characters in a league like oh here's like what the the next six fighters for super smash bros are gonna be and it's like it's gonna have crash
19:12
bandicoot and spiral the dragon yeah the ones everyone wants yeah sure like you can tell it's [ __ ] mk there's stuff like that as well havoc is gonna be added to the game and nitara and i'm like [ __ ] off no they're not why the [ __ ] you lying yeah there's just some some things like that and that strikes me as this is [ __ ] i don't believe it i don't believe for a second that they're going to undo the sindel ratcon like this i don't believe that mk-12 can be the next game it'd be weird for them to do another mk game so
19:46
soon unless it was a crossover with injustice that's the only way to see the next game being mk the only thing that would give me a reason to believe that it could possibly be the case is that next year is a big anniversary but then again even then it's like people will say people are saying say smash is like well there's a big like 20th anniversary for this franchise our 30th right right when the final character is going to be announced clearly that's what it's going to be but it doesn't really mean anything mk's history when it comes to anniversaries is kind of
20:16
[ __ ] hilarious mk9 released on the 19th anniversary yeah mkx two years early for an anniversary mk11 was early for an anniversary but it kept his content cycle going long enough that theoretically they could have part of some more content for the big 30th anniversary we get the announcement that mk11's content cycle is over and they're working on the next game plus the 2021 movie and the second animated movie all in the year before the 30th you know mk's really bad at celebrating the
20:47
anniversary you know they don't even put out like a costume like mkx and mk9 didn't get an anniversary costume pack just why not they don't have to be working on the game currently to put out a content pack for it like some little quick costumes here's some cool classic costumes to celebrate the big like 20th 25th our 30th anniversary the closest thing to an anniversary thing we have gotten i think raiden and or sub-zero released for injustice 2 in the year of the 25th anniversary of mk i think so i'm the thought's up in my
21:18
head but i can't yo don't quote me on that but that'd be the closest we've got so i'm doubtful it's going to be another mk i think it's far more likely to be the new ip i mean they mentioned they want to work on a new ip i feel like that i wouldn't have come up if that wasn't the next thing they're going to be allowed to work on wbb was going to say now before you do that you have to make a third injustice game i doubt they would have brought it up nasa's going to turn people against wb it's like let them make them make the new ip wb stop forcing them to make more injustice but i feel like especially with the injustice animated movie that's coming out that could you know kind of tide injustice fans over until the next game
21:49
most likely will be the new ip whatever that is whether that's a marvel fighting game as people keep theorizing about or just something brand new and fresh i don't know uh i think it's a safe bet that there will be an mk character in there maybe as like the last dlc character or in the middle of the content cycle here's the dlc character of mk release them on the 8th of october but yeah okay they did technically kind of celebrate the um an anniversary for mk when they released terminator on the 8th of october two years ago because i think i think coming back to was like
22:20
the 8th of october as well you know so it's like if it's released in october probably as close to the eighth as they can get because that's the mk anniversary that's as close as we get [ __ ] terminator you know what i mean but i think i've rambled long enough my throat saw uh i need to need to stop get some rest and finally play some video games i've been you know trying out stranger in paradise the the trial and that's pretty good it's got some neo influence i i i like some of the combat kind of weird i was like it's basically like a final fantasy one izakaya reimagining even though
22:51
there was a japanese manga that did the same thing in like 2016 but whatever you know uh started playing the youth dlc for ff7 remake that's quite good i like how yuphi plays i like her little run animation when she puts her arms out to balance herself that's cute so that's that that's that's me done for my 20s uh see guys when i'm 30. oh no i i feel the change is happening ah
