Mortal Kombat VS DC: Fatalities!!!

Mortal Kombat VS DC Universe came out this week and although I neither have a PS3 or an XBox 360 to play it, I watched the Fatality videos on Gametrailers and came out more than disappointed. Simply put, they've neutered the concept of fatalies. When Mortal Kombat first came out, it was a hit not because of the in-depth game play; the draw of the game was the fatalities. They were wacky, bloody, gory, cartoony, and overall, just fun to watch. With MK VS DC, they've essentially replaced what we once knew as fatalities with just... moves. I guess it's a bit more realistic, but fuck, I wanna play a Mortal Kombat game for it's bloody fatalities! I've attached a few of the videos, see for yourself.

From what I've seen, The DC Character's "Heroic Brutalities" are more impressive than the Mortal Kombat character's "Fatalities." Baraka's in particular is just pathetic. I did get a kick out of the one that had the "MK" arcade cabinet fall on someone though, that was funny.

I think when I first heard about the title, I immediately thought "Wow, DC is letting their superheroes get mutilated?" I found it hard to believe that DC would ever let someone chop off Batman's head or have Superman brutally rip open someone's heart. I mean, these superheroes had a "code of conduct". After seeing Batman's "Heroic Brutality," I think I got a sense of what was written in the fine print that MK had to agree to. Despite the oxymoron of "heroic brutality", Superman's finishing move was pretty cool, though I think the neck should've snapped before the cement does. :)

It was quite a week last week. It started off on a more heavy note last Sunday, but as the week wore on, things became better and more clear. So let's do a little recap. This is going to be kind of long, so if you find this kind of stuff boring I've inserted pictures of funny cats for your entertainment. So... 1.5 Weeks Ago About 1.5 weeks ago, my friend Jon from Living Room gave me the contact info for his uncle. His uncle is an engineer and apparently was looking for new grads and new hands to hire. That week, I gave him a few calls but he wasn't there when I called him and when he returned my calls, I wasn't here either. We were playing phone tag that week *insert schoolgirl giggle*. Sunday Morning So last Sunday morning, his uncle gave me a call at 9 am (The morning! My weakness! HISS!) and we talked about stuff. I was telling him a bit about school as well as elaborating my work/coop experience as he didn't have my resume yet. So he goes on to tell

Welcome to the revamped Billionty-Oneth Geek website! First of all, update your bookmarks and re-subscribe to the feed if you have to. I bought a domain name for my blog, and it's easy access (sort of) through www.billiontyonethgeek.com (I'm sorry that it's such a long address, but hey, here's a hug *hug*). Second of all, you might have noticed the new layout. It's a complete Lam original! I designed it from the top down. It actually took a lot quicker than I had initially thought it would. Because the coding didn't show up properly on Dreamweaver through the GUI, I actually had to code the whole damn thing. Because my knowledge of HTML and CSS were so basic, it took a lot of trial and error. What's frustrating was that there would be times where I'd make a change in the code, yet nothing ended up changing when I uploaded the code. The weird part was that I'd block off the changes, then undo it, and somehow magically the changes appeared.

George Clooney is UP IN THE AIR!!!

So this is the last in the three movies that I was looking forward to at the end of 2009 (the other two being Bad Lieutenant and Avatar). It's hard to say which movies I enjoyed more because they're all so different, but I can confidently say that I enjoyed all three. Also of the three, this movie is the most realistic when it's all said and done. Up In The Air tells a story about Ryan Bingham, who flies all over America firing people. Laying people off is such a tough thing to do that companies that need to do so hire people like Ryan. It becomes reflective as Ryan sees his own life of isolation at odds compared to the lives of those around him. It's apt that he has such a hollow and thankless job which parallels his own life. Because he's on the road for 250+ days of the year, his own life is quite hollow; with no stable relationships, weakened family ties and no friendships in sight. In fact the first time we see his apartment, I was kind of shocked. Up
