I did a search on this forum to see if there was any progress on Orchid’s Ultimate move (my favourite character so far) and I was surprised at how many people were talking about sexism and other issues that I just don’t feel have anything to do with anything.
I play KI with my boyfriend and I love it’s over the top style. I don’t like orchid just because I am a girl but because I love the firecat and all of her moves. The lighting and style is very cool and I love how she looks in her shorts when she’s kicking butt.
My bf showed me the old arcade video of orchid flashing and I totally luved it!! It made me giggle and laugh so much. There’s nothing sexist about it, it’s very tongue and cheek and funny. I find it hilarious when a strong guy faints at the sight of a pretty girl. I find that to be the opposite of sexism, I actually find it empowering as a girl. We girls have ■■■■■ and we like having ■■■■■, and we like being distracting when we want to be. This is something I don’t think guys will ever understand fully. BUT I really hope they keep Orchid sexy and tough, because I don’t relate to the other girls on KI other than Maya.
Maya is very cool but Orchids’ body and style are closer to me and I totally luv her bad ass attitude of not giving a f***. I’m not judging what anyone prefers here BUT I did want to say that Orchid’s Ultimate should be sexy and fiery, just like she is. It’s so much cooler than a lame ‘actual’ fire cat. She’s beautiful and deadly, I luv it and she’s the perfect character for me : ) Thanks so much for not making her look too manly. And please introduce more girl characters!
A girl character like Junko from Desert Punk would be awesome, she’s a bad ass and one of my favourites : ) KI needs more girls, and not creepy ones! Just my thoughts. Thanks for listening.
p.s - And if you don’t want to make Orchid’s ultimate sexy and fun like it should be, than you should introduce “Killer” finishing moves which are sexy or funny. Being too serious is never good and I would love to see some more humour in some of the finishing moves : ) mortal kombat is much too serious and violent for me ; S
