Right now the speculation is the combos will be back to 2-3 button presses like the original MK.

f, d, f+HP, or f, f, f +HP.

They'll be easy enough to remember. Besides, doing a fatality should have at least -some- effort required, otherwise you don't get any satisfaction out of it.

the button presses were rarely the issue it had been more abot where to position yourself i found
the integrety of my sword is more than a match for the meager fermity of your soul.

You hit the nail on the head. I could never get the right position. The buttons were no problems.

Yea even some of the easier Fatalities could be hard to pull off. Maybe they just need to add a couple of more seconds to finish him and make it will work from any distance.

Eh, I'd prefer one button fatalities. Anyone with thumbs can do Down Down Down Circle or something like that; it's not really a challenge and for most people probably doesn't yield a whole ton of satisfaction in and of itself. The satisfaction comes from the animation of a good fatality.

My problem with current fatalities is having to look up a new combination for every fatality for every character, especially when I'm playing with a friend who's never tried MK before or if we're using new characters. I would be happy if there were a couple universal inputs that would correspond to fatalities for each character so I'm not attempting to memorize a new code every time I want to see a new fatality, but one button fatalities seem preferable because either way, the input is more of a minor unnecessary inconvenience than a fun challenge.

Another benefit to one button fatalities would be range no longer being a problem. I remember one of the fatalities in MK vs DC required me to hit Back three times while being as close as physically possible, so I never was able to pull that one off.

Edited for that last paragraph there.

1 Button Fatalities please.

Nothing is secret anymore with the internet in full swing, so making complex motions and distances is pointless now. Not to mention you'll be able to watch a full fatality montage a day or two after launch on youtube.
