Here are my initial Mortal Kombat 11 stress test impressions

Over the weekend, many members of the fighting game community were able to seize the opportunity to try out Mortal Kombat 11 for the first time. This was thanks to the private stress test which was primarily online, but NetherRealm Studios did enable the Klassic Towers during the final few hours.

For me personally, this gave me an opportunity to play Baraka — my favorite Mortal Kombat character along with Reptile — after his absence in Mortal Kombat X. I was also able to get a general feel for how Mortal Kombat 11 will play like when it releases on April 23, 2019.

Differences between Peach and Daisy's turnips have been discovered for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Since Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was released, the community was unsure of the differences between Peach and her Echo Fighter, Daisy. Meaningful unique properties were known for Pit, Marth, Simon, Roy, Samus, and Ryu when compared to their respective Echo Fighters — Dark Pit, Lucina, Richter, Chrom, Dark Samus, and Ken.
