Oops!  Last ep was posted stating that we talked about Mortal Kombat 4 and we didn’t get to it.  This time around it’s a shorter show, but Fred and Jam pack in the fourth and final arcade iteration along with MK’s transition into many other media including movies, television, and even music.  There are a bunch of audio clips so we’re going to give credit where credit’s due in order of appearance:

  • Goodbye (Demo Version) – Gravity Kills
  • Burn – Sister Machine Gun
  • Juke Joint Jezebel (Metropolis Mix) – KMFDM
  • Lover – Lords of Acid
  • Techno Syndrome (Mortal Kombat) – The Immortals
  • Utah Saints Take On The Theme From Mortal Kombat – Utah Saints
  • Halcyon and On and On – Orbital
  • Fire – Scooter
  • Meglomaniac – KMFDM
  • Encounter the Ultimate (Theme From Mortal Kombat Annihilation) – The Immortals

E3 has come and gone but that doesn’t stop Fred and Trees from discussing a ton of games discussed during last week.  Then the conversation migrates to b-tier titles like The Force Unleashed and Metal Gear Survive before going off about a new Sega CD compatible flash cart.
