leave a comment »

Fred and Jam delve back into the history of Mortal Kombat with Mortal Kombat 3 and its many iterations including Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 (UMK3) and Mortal Kombat Trilogy on consoles.  Then the pair head to the third dimension with Mortal Kombat 4, the final iteration in arcades.  Finally they reluctantly delve into the awful spin-offs of Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero and Mortal Kombat: Special Forces.

Two Mortal Kombat Documentaries

leave a comment »

As promised, below are two documentaries found on the bonus discs of premium editions of Deception and Armageddon.  The first is a brief (only six minutes) documentary of the Mortal Kombat franchise, produced by Midway, and found on the Deception bonus disc along with an arcade port of the original arcade game by Digital Eclipse.  The second is a much longer documentary on the history of the fatality and plenty of stories from the staff.  This was also produced by Midway and included in the bonus disc of Armageddon along with another Digital Eclipse port of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3.  Enjoy!
