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.






If you need a reminder of what fatalities were all about, check out this fun little compilation:




Later geeks.

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. :)

R.I.P. Evan Tanner

The body of the professional fighter and former UFC champion, Evan Tanner, 37, was found in the Palo Verde mountain area of California on September 8th, 2008. He was found a few miles away from his campsite on foot, with no water, where the temperatures were around 110 degrees fahrenheit. The coroner's report listed the cause of death as from heat exposure.

Tanner left Oceanside, California on September 2nd. On September 4th, he sent a text message to a friend telling him that his motorcycle was out of gas, that he was out of water, and if his friend didn't hear from him the next day, to call the authorities. Unfortunately, Evan never returned home.

I'm not the hugest MMA fan, I consider myself a casual fan, and a n00b at best. I was listening to Dave Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer Radio, and the story of Tanner's life sounded intriguing.

As fantastic as it sounds, Tanner ventured into the deserts in search of treasure and adventure. I kid you …

Star Wars: The Force Awakens!!!!!!!!!!

(Warning: Spoilers Ahead)
Star Wars!!!!  After a 10 year gap we finally receive a new entry into the now Disney owned Star Wars franchise!  So it is apt that the new entry is called the Force Awakens.
The movie starts off 30 years from where the Return of the Jedi last left us.  The Empire has fallen and the Rebels have seemingly disbanded.  But from the ashes of the past, a new threat has risen.  Out of the fallen Empire, a new army called the First Order has spawned, threatening to finish off what the Empire set out to do –  eliminate the force by terminating the last known Jedi, Luke Skywalker.  But as the Empire has evolved so have the Rebels.  Led by General Leia Organa, the Resistance (or the new Rebels) aims to find Luke first, to stop the First Order.
We are told this story through two new main characters.  Rey, who is a scavenger on the planet Jakku, who harvests scrap metals to earn a meal.  Finn, a turncoat stormtrooper who realizes his purpose could be something more than j…

About The Lam

Very first light, Chief, sharks come cruisin', so we formed ourselves into tight groups. You know, it was kinda like old squares in the battle like you see in the calendar named "The Battle of Waterloo" and the idea was: shark comes to the nearest man, that man he starts poundin' and hollerin' and screamin' and sometimes the shark go away... but sometimes he wouldn't go away. Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'. The ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces. You know by the end of that first dawn, lost a hundred men. I don't know how many sharks, maybe a thousand.…
