Every time I watch one of these trailers for next year’s Mortal Kombat offering, I can’t help but think back to all of those days and quarters spent at the Ross Park Mall in Pittsburgh, PA. Those were the days! Nothing like rolling to the arcade with your buddies and lining up your hard earned chore money on the arcade cabinet to stake your claim on the next match.
I really hope this Mortal Kombat reboot can capture some of the magic I first experienced while playing the original title back in the early 90’s. So far it looks to be on that path, but until I get my hands on it, my personal jury is still out on this one. I’m pulling for it to succeed, because I’d like to get back to fighters, which I’ve abandoned in my later years. Check out the bone-chilling Sub-Zero trailer below to see how awesome some of the internal damage moves are. You’ve been thinking, ow, my liver just got smashed…
