Mortal Kombat 1: Medically Certified Massacre; Could There Be Problems With Multiplayer?! [VIDEO]

The most horrific moves in Mortal Kombat 1 are brutal enough to shock a medically trained professional.



The Mortal Kombat series is perhaps best known for its extreme gore, making it one of the best brawler series in gaming. However, it can be difficult to watch so much violence and take it seriously, especially if you are a trained professional. However, the impressive Mortal Kombat 1 can shock even the docs.

In a recent video posted on Doctor ER’s YouTube channel, the title character Doc (real name Dr. Jordan Wagner, DO) analyses some of Mortal Kombat 1’s most brutal moments.

In just nine minutes, Wagner provides insight into some of the fatal moves performed in the game. Much of it is shockingly amusing, but it also makes you wonder how these violent acts would play out in the real world.

Of course, there is nothing to suggest that Wagner is criticising the realism of MK1. However, there is room for some medical questioning, such as how long a heart would beat after being ripped out of the chest. Or even what to do if a severed limb has to be taken to hospital.


Mortal Kombat 1 local multiplayer mode has got problems?!


Some Mortal Kombat 1 fans have recently complained on social media that the game’s unlockable cosmetics cannot be used by both players in local multiplayer battles. Their complaints surfaced online just as Mortal Kombat 1 was released globally on September 19, following a brief early access period.

Unsurprisingly, the in-game cosmetics are tied to the purchaser’s account by default, yet some Mortal Kombat 1 fans were disappointed to learn that their purchase does not make them available to both players during local multiplayer sessions.

Player 2 is instead always forced to use the default skins. This drawback has annoyed hundreds of fans, who recently voted to post a thread complaining about it on the r/MortalKombat subreddit front page.

Many of those who joined the debate called on NetherRealm to address this shortcoming. They argued that preventing opponents from accessing the host’s cosmetics in local multiplayer sessions is an anti-consumer move. Which, moreover, has no tangible benefit. Others have taken a more resigned stance. They recalled that Mortal Kombat 11 in 2019 had exactly the same problem. No one ever addressed it. They concluded that it was naive to expect the sequel to be any different. This limitation of the franchise’s previous entry was not unprecedented. After all, NetherRealm implemented a similar local multiplayer system in Injustice 2, released in 2017.

As part of the controversy stemming from the newly surfaced grievances, some fans have also complained that offline multiplayer in Injustice 2 does not allow players to see the Mortal Kombat 1 deaths that were previously resolved by the host.

Although the same was true for MK11, it seems that this limitation is still purely visual. Namely, early player reports indicate that all fatal casualties in the game can be executed, regardless of whether they appear in your move list.
