Though the Konquest mode has it's faults, it can be quite enjoyable. I don't know the story, I don't pay attention to it, so people'll have to ask someone else for that... but it's always fun beating people up and fighting huge snow-monsters.
My only beef (okay, not my ONLY beef) with it is that you can't skip the cut screens. You'd think that'd make me understand the story more... but it doesn't. Not at all.
I just pasted a 7-stage trial thingy, where some image that supposedly looks like my mother or something made me fight all these ninjas and gave me lots of coins if I kicked their butts.
Well, it wasn't so much skip. I just kept losing and it asked if I wanted to keep going or quit. So I quit that part and went on my merry way. Like this one part where these two people were chilling there, one was shooting me with some energy and all these dudes kept coming and coming and they wouldn't stop. Killed so many of them. It was impossible. Or at least it pissed me off to the point I didn't wanna play anymore.
There was a part like that in the trials that I only just got by after trying like 20 times. I think I had to use my special powers (or whatever you call them) to kill these guys, but I had a time limit. Pain in the ass. Got 2500 coins afterwards, though
Oh yeah, I remember the original. It was during the Street Fighter 2 hype. That game was the freakin' shizzit. Everyone played it. Then I was at the movie theater and saw this game. First time seeing Scorpion pull off his mask and torch someone you knew the game was the best.
When MK2 came out you would think aliens had landed. The arcade was full for weeks. Me and some buddies would wait all week so we could take the bus to the mall on Saturday and play that game. It was always so packed you would have to have your quarter up for like 15 minutes or more. And there was always those few kids that were awesome at it because they had like no parental supervision and went to the mall every day to play. The jerks.
Speaking of that, it's weird not having a lot of arcades everywhere. Remember having to put the quarter or token up there to show you were next. Tons of kids huddled around the game. Them's were the days.
Big guys are harder though. Your combos don't have the same effect on them, they don't get hurt as easily, screw throwing and they inflict more damage. Of course they're slower, but that really isn't an advantage in most arenas. Places with stage fatalities I can mess them up though. I like beating up Goro, for instance, into that meat grinder level. I wait until he throws a combo, I block and use a power move to send his ass to Alpo land.
