[One, two, Freddy’s coming for you- on PS3 and Xbox 360 in the newest piece of Mortal Kombat DLC content.]
Having played the newest Mortal Kombat game, I’m happy to report (what most of you already know) that it’s a great mix of old-school and modern fighting conventions. Ed Boon and his creative team went back to MK’s roots. Back to the time of 2D arcade fun. The game play grabs the feel of Mortal Kombat 2. The games animation, sound and graphics are top notch! Honestly, it looks and feels good. Oh, and the fatalities are brutal and gory as ever. The most obscene and ridiculous yet. With that said, can someone please explain to me what the hell Freddy Krueger is doin’ in Outworld?
There has been one question on the minds of Mortal Kombat fans around the world. It has plagued their every hour, their every night, and even their darkest nightmares. When can I finally get my hands-on Freddy and pit him against my favourite Mortal Kombat warrior? Well the time has come and Freddy will be available on PlayStation Network tomorrow and Xbox LIVE very soon!
A variation of the classic Wes Craven character, he comes out swinging with two of his signature razor gloves and DLC launch trailer.
Don’t get me wrong, Freddy looks like he’ll give you a rip roaring good time in between tearing your opponent limb from limb, but where do the character cross-overs end; do we want them to end?
Next in line in my crazed obsession with movie weapon replica’s comes a bloody, junky piece worthy of a mass murderer… The machete of Jason Voorhies from the new Friday the 13th reboot. From the Lord of the Rings weapons to the Star Wars Lightsabres all the way to 300‘s full battle attire, the big people have found a way to make a little extra cash off these films.
This is the weapon of choice for our Hockey masked hero, from a straight shot up to the hilt, to a nice “Thunk” into a kid’s cranium. It was also the weapon used to decapitate his deranged mama. Described by BUDK with a great and immediate description “Each blade is aged to appear rusted and bloody“. Can we ask for anything more??? Actually we can….
I am making a hypothesis that we will get the full movie quality Nightmare On Elm Street glove of Freddy Krueger. To coincide with the reboot of the original, they gave the glove a little retooling and tweaking for the the new film, so selling a replica glove will be a fanboy’s dream…Something dangerous to do around Elm Street. All the gloves available now are handmade fanfare or plastic, even some with false edges, so i am making a NerdBastard’s gentleman’s bet.
But it all begins here with the release of the the Friday the 13th Machete. A great step in the right direction for horror fans as well as avid movie rep collectors (like myself).
