One of my fondest memories from elementary school was when my mom bought me Mortal Kombat for Sega Genesis the day it came out (I had received a good report card a few weeks earlier). At this point I was already obsessed with the game from playing it at the Arcades and was dying to have it at home. Over a decade later, I still remember the “blood code” – abacabb. A new Mortal Kombat has just been released for XBOX 360 and Playstation 3 which promises gameplay similar to the original with modern graphics to make the gratuitous violence even more intense. Or as they say in the game description: “Characters, environments and fatalities have never been presented with as much gory detail as in this next generation Mortal Kombat. From internal organs to the most “realistic” blood effects, Kombat has never looked this good.” All I have to say is, “Finish him!”
