With the first Mortal Kombat webisode out and the release of the game only a week away, I can barely remember the last time I was this excited about the franchise. That's probably because the year was 1995 and I was only nine years old.
Great article man but one thing that has always bothered me is how did they come up with the dragon logo for MK?? @Below lol could be.
They were probably at a meeting and said we need something bad ass. And voila.
Voila means Chuck Norris appeared in a puff of smoke, handed it to them, nodded solemnly, and disappeared again. ;D
Maybe to do with Lui-kang? Having his Dragon moves and sorta being the Mc?
Haha ya I was 10 in 1995. I remember staying up til 8AM at my cousins house and having my aunt yell at us as we tried to lie that we hadn't been up all night lol. lol staying up trying to pull every fatality we could download off of bradygames haha. stoked for this! edit:: Haha i also remember how stoked I was for that movie. I remember telling my family "Fuck Titantic!! I wanna go see MK, it's a better movie!!" lmao they never let me live that down...I digress Titantic was a better movie, but MK was way more enjoyable.
i thought MK2 was the pinnacle of the series. i become less and less interested in the series as every new game came out. i was all but done with MK until i played the new demo. really liked it, but i am going to wait til i can get it cheaper down the road.
I felt the same way. Honestly Everything between UMK3 and up until now sucked. They finally got it right with this one!
Growing up with Mortal Kombat and the idea would make the idiots who argue video games make kids violent have a field day.
If games made kids violent I would be like a serious mass murderer by now.
I played MK1 arcade right when it came out. It blew me away.
I wish I couldve grown up with fighters like Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat, unfortunately I only grew up on the Tekken series, and 6 was such a dissapointment
