Round One... Wow, this is pretty badass.
To those that knew me in High School, it's no surprise that I'm a fan of Mortal Kombat. For a while, that's how we regularly annoyed the girls and non-gamers that we hung out with. Some would say we just wanted to play, but I'm sure that the annoyance factor made us want to do it even more... why didn't I get laid in high school again?
Now I was nowhere near as good as Roger and BLM at Ultimate Kombat, but I could hold my own against average players and I would occasionally eek out the win against those two. Two was always my bread and butter.
But that's neither here nor there as this wasn't meant to be a post about the games. There were also the movies. I actually enjoyed the first one a great deal. It was stupid fun and action packed and the tone actually matched that of the later games with the stupid Babalities and such (Baraka was still one ugly fuck though, even with a diaper and rattle). Like most though, I did wonder what it would be like if they took themselves more seriously and matched the tone of the first game. I figured that it would probably be retarded and an utter failure though and life went on.
Last year though, this surfaced:
Wow, that actually looks pretty cool... and the cast, with Michael Jai White and Jeri Ryan, that's pretty solid. Apparently it was made to generate interest for investors to pop in for a movie.
Well, the movie never happened so they decided to make a web series. I figured, "well that's that. This will likely suck." But then they put this out:
Well that looks pretty cool. And it looks like they were able to keep the cast intact. This might be pretty sweet.
So Episode 1 came out this week and it is. I am disappointed that Stryker isn't wearing a T-Shirt and Ball Cap though.
