Two words any male in their 20s will remember from their child hood: "FINISH HIM!" Remember when there were actual "arcades"? Using the simple joy stick and simple jump and kick buttons to disembowel your opponents chest and have blood squirting all over the screen? Seems pretty archaic now when you see the graphics of the new Call of Duty games or watch someone use a motion sensor controller to bowl or play golf (hey kiddies I had Duck Hunt which was the best game ever so shove it). To put it simply, Mortal Kombat WAS...THE...GAME to play. Then there came the multiple spinoffs/sequels, merchandise and movies. However there was always something missing. A really well done action packed movie.
Well, now there is. Not a movie per say but a collection of webisodes. They are extremely well done and will definitly bring back back the times of actually spending twenty five cents on a video game. I remember there would be a line to be able to play the game at your local arcade (now your lucky to even be able to find an arcade that can stay in buisness for over a year).
All the characters you have grown to love including Sub Zero, Scorpion, Johnny Cage, Sonya, Jacks, etc. are back for a great story. Enough of my rambiling and check it out for yourself. The first video is what was first launched on the web last year (DEFINITELY CHECK OUT FIRST) and the second one is the actual first episode. Check them out if you knew what was good for you. Just remember: "Fatality... WINS!"
