I've been having a blast playing through Mortal Kombat's story mode. However, I often find myself needing to pause the cutscene I am currently viewing and have yet to find a way of doing so. My current "solution" is alt-tabbing and killing the game before the cutscene plays through, but that is hardly convenient (nor is it actually pausing).

I am playing on a PC, in case that matters.

  • first of, why do you need to pause them? – ratchet freak Nov 21 '13 at 15:55
  • I don't think you can easily pause cutscenes in any recent major game. Other than turning to Youtube or keeping some recording software handy so you can watch them later, there's usually no way. – Pvt. Grichmann Nov 21 '13 at 18:43

    @ratchetfreak Plenty of reasons. Perhaps may baby caught fire? Perhaps I am being mauled by a bear? I need to pause the cutscene so that I don't miss out on anything and tend the situation at hand. – Aubergine Nov 21 '13 at 21:50

You can't pause cutscenes, but you can replay the last one if you quit to the menu before the fight ends and the resume Story mode
