See my follow up post .

Basically, there's dual currency, with weapons and equipment that requires the rarer one (especially to unlock new characters).

Anyways. I know there are issues but I would like to try out Mortal Kombat, would it work fine on my ipod touch 5? I played a game I had before, Linkin park 8 bit rebellion from my old ipod and that game kept crashing.

The iPod 5 has iPad 2 hardware. I think you'll be fine.

Serious fighting fans will probably find the game lacking, but someone who has a more casual appreciation for the genre may find the visuals, story, and RPG elements compelling.
Doesn't seem like my cup of tea, but I will try it anyway.

It's worth checking out, if only for the way it looks.

Corporate Fury
Mix between arena fighting and third person adventure. Epic game either way. Buy it, love it, talk about, worship it. It's that good. (no one else's opinion matters lol)

I agree with you there. Also, can't wait for Kinetic Damage. Been waiting for that a while now!

King of Fighters and Volt are the best ones. But Marvel Vs Capcom 2 and Soul Calibur are definitely worthwhile.

SFxT would be if Capcom got rid of the coin system and made the netcode actually playable.
