I'm ready to argue that one button fatalities are awesome. When I saw that DLC was available to simplify them, I was super down for it. Mortal Kombat Trilogy has this feature included as a really awesome cheat code, but this is 2015. Whatever was free and just a cheat code, now it has to cost extra. I was okay with that, it made me feel like I was being gouged for extra money, but I wanted it. My friends aren't super great at video games, I'm only able to really focus on like one or two characters, and I don't care to spend extra money for something I want.
Well then I read that they're limited use in game, like cell phone games.

I don't know how to feel other than outraged. I can't just buy that DLC. Anything limited use in a game feels like the absolute worst gouging possible. If it had been five bucks for unlimited one button finishers, sure. It feels like abuse, but limited in app use purchases feel like ritualized abuse. Am I supposed to just keep trowing money at it forever? Like those "games" where you tap to wait, but you can pay to wait less and tap more so you can wait again? No thanks man, this is bullshit.
Mortal Kombat was always way better about having unlockable stuff than other games, while the last game had some skins and extra characters, I don't feel it was as bad as this. This is the worst kind of DLC.
I'm buying the season pass DLC for thirty bucks. Having Jason and Predator and two other dumpy "original" characters. It's kind of bullshit. Half the price of the game for four new characters, two of which are just color swaps without anything really cool or interestnig at all. I could make a case for guest characters also being dumb, but that's kind of why I want them.
Make way for DLC!
