A Mortal Kombat Binge (Of Sorts)

For those of you who grew up playing Mortal Kombat or even knowing of its existence, y'all might find this post moderately intriguing, or at the least, slightly interesting. My personal interest started nearly a decade ago. I remember playing countless hours of MK3 on the Sega Genesis with Lick and Dinglun back when we were wee ones and how awesome it was to lay down fatalities on each other. I mean, what other game would let you rip off your opponent's head or limbs as a reward system? I can't think of any either. None that were good at least. I wouldn't call myself a hardkore Mortal Kombat fan, but I did play Deadly Alliance and Deception as well in the 2000s. Since then, Mortal Kombat kinda dropped off the map. Up until last year. A trailer for a gritty, dark, real-world adaptation of Mortal Kombat (named Rebirth) starring Michael Jai White as Jax and Jeri Ryan as Sonya Blade was first exhibited online in the Summer of 2010. I was immediately hooked and craving for more. Last month, the first current-gen Mortal Kombat game was released and on the same release day, Mortal Kombat: Legacy was born. Ever since April 7th, I have been waiting patiently by the week for each episode of the web-series. On the Machinima channel on YouTube, you can find 7 episodes of MK Legacy (as of the date of this post). So you could be asking yourself: Why should I care? Is it even good? Watch below to decide for yourself. It's my favorite episode so far.

Yep. And then I came to thinking: How awesome would it be if they rebooted the Mortal Kombat movies to be more like MK Legacy? The previous Mortal Kombat movies weren't too good, but they were still pretty awesome. I thought Annihilation sucked overall, but it was nice to see Cyrax in action. I actually stumbled across this image today at IGN that ranks the original Mortal Kombat movie among other video game movies. The verdict? Not terrible, but could definitely be better.

Video Game Movies By The Numbers

Please bring us MK Legacy as a full-length movie. Please?

The OTHER car ride home

Even though the Lick wasn't there, I'd like to sum up the other car ride home with a video clip:

Look Both Ways Before you Cross

So we all know we make bad choices when we're all measuring a body alcohol composition of ONE MILLION PERCENT! But long story short it was another great night with the regulars and at the night we had to select a driver to get us home. I'm not sure what exactly happen but I'll do my best to stage this for ya'll. (May be UNDER-Dramatized for the sake of keeping the integrity of friends)

Dayfut: Pickle can't drive home because he's gone.
Chun Lick: Yeah and look at Landon...


Chun Lick: Yeahh
Dayfut: Oh lets flip a coin to see who drives!

Dayfut: (Profanity) Yeah I'm driving!


Dayfut: Oh Plimorth driver hamms
Chun Lick: LANDON!!!!!

Landon: Dude you guys don't look good to drive...

Chun Lick: YEAH!
Dayfut: Lifesavers a coin flip let's watch who drive (Flips a Coin)

Then... after events which we wish not to discuss and finally reaching or destination

Collective group: Uh I don't think we should let Hui drive back, he's swerving all over the place. And why is he braking every other house?!?

Collective group: Yeah it's a bad idea, Chun Lick you get your drunk ass out of this car and take Hui back to your place.

Chun Lick: (mumble and stumble)

I would be lying if I didn't tell you that these are the exact events that unfolded before me. After tonight I think I can honesty say it was a great night. AND of course I need to give a shout out to LANDON! For making it happen yet again.
