Nothing is better then firing up the Nintendo Wii and beating your friends senseless with animated violence. No game did that better then Super Smash Bros. Brawl, right?
The game was fun for it’s time, but what the game really needed wzs a set of blood spurting Mortal Kombat style fatalities, to own your friends with. Fatalites would have made the experience so much better. Maybe then people older than 12 would play it more than once. Come on, what would you give to have a fatality that makes your opponent shit blood. That’s makes a game truly worth playing.
Finally, for those of us that don’t usually play fighting games anymore, we now have a reason to get back into the realm of punches and kicks that actually mean something, violence. The game that made mother’s pull their children away from the arcades and replace any with a C to a K is back. Mortal Kombat 9 or just Mortal Kombat has hit the demo circuit for consoles everywhere and it isn’t disappointing anyone right now (check out Luke Gallagher’s PAX EAST 2011 Recap). When you grow up on character’s like Sub-Zero, Milenna, Liu Kangit’s something stays in your mind. The game isn’t officially on sale till April but it’s well worth it to get your practice in now because with fatalities making a comeback it’d be a shame if you didn’t get prepared.

Test Your Might.
When you’re showing off moves that cover the player’s character in blood it’s simply a treat. As soon as you hear the all so familiar “Fatality” voice it all comes back to you, hours of practice and defeat. So get downloading and start trying out Mortal Kombat today, because it’s just humiliating to watch your ass get beat with your actual ass (not a real move).
Mortal Kombat, on sale for X-box 360 and PS3 April 19th in North America and April 21st in Europe.
Oh Mortal Kombat, how awesome you were when I first played you… and then finding out how much I sucked at it. If you were like me, I had to cheat and turn on one button fatalities in order to do them because my 6 year old mind couldn’t remember the button combos. Anyway, the same folks that brought us the awesome Zelda on Paper. To be blunt, this is basically Mortal Kombat in “South Park” style animation and that, that’s a good thing. Check the video out as it mixes blood and cuteness (is that possible for Mortal Kombat) and check some fatalities out.
Ever wonder how the developers of the Mortal Kombat brand of fighting games come up with all their fatalities? And, how do they decide which ones to put in the final game?
A user on YouTube, machinima, has created four videos of the best (and worst) fatalities to have never made it into any of the Mortal Kombat games. All the fatalities are of his own invention, and some of them are pretty clever and funny. See any you would like in the next game?
