Minor Komplaint

Juiced as I am that Mortal Kombat Armageddon is coming out in just a couple of days, I have to confess that I'm not holding out too much hope for a Deception/Konquest-like experience.

Those reservations are quickly leavened when I think of the new and fabulously inspired Kreate-a-Fighter/Kreate-a-Fatality/Motor Kombat features.

The roster screen is reunion heaven. Except for Khameleon.
Her male counterpart is in there, though.

An odd thing; when you look at the selection screen, you realize how few female characters there actually are. They only occupy two (truncated) rows out of eight. (Plus one for Sheeva.)

And while the ladies are still decked out in as little fabric as possible, the look of the males has morphed noticeably towards the conservative end of the fashion spectrum...

They gave Rain a top-knot and a cape!

He looks cool and everything, but it's a shame they couldn't go the exhibitionist route.
You decide.
