Pikachu, I choose you!
It blows my mind that one of the most popular fighting games of it’s time had only seven playable characters.
i like johnny cage’s glasses
It blows my mind that this pile of crap was popular
Most of the time I played with Sonya. Most of 5th grade :D
I still remember the day I got my hands on this game. <3 The following day I couldn't feel my fingers.
This is how my TV screen looked like for a couple of years. Sub-Zero! :3
@Alistaire Chud: And just one lonely chick.
Takashi Nishiyama: people only like your game because of the colorful variety of ninjas!
Ed Boon and John Tobias: Oh really? That’s what we gon see…
->Then, they release MK3 with no ninjas (actually there was unmasked sub zero…and noob too but only through cheat, right?)
The game FAILS. (actually not)
And what’s next? Boon and Tobias release Ultimate MK3, with all the classic colored ninjas + new ones.
Gotta love this story.
@serotonin reuptake: Is that a true story? Too lazy to Google it…
Never played MK3. I thought it was a flawed version of MK3U which was a flawed version of MKT. The final version, Trilogy, was the best ever.
And I do agree that the rainbow of ninjas is the core of its success.
@Lisbeth: Ah, yes. 8-bit fap. Chun-Li was awesome. Sonya, meh.
@Negative0: Oh no…it’s bogus. Just a story me and my circle of friends created at the time UMK3 was released. But I think there is a grain of truth on it =D.
@Lisbeth: yeah one chick, BUT WHERE ARE THE BLACK DUDES?! at least the chick is there… fucking rasists
@Benny Lava: Kano looks black enough to me in this game. But after MK1 some sort of Michael Jackson shit happens to him.
@serotonin reuptake: yeah right, this kind of black http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRX99fcX_t4 :)
@Benny Lava: Jax?
@Myth: dude did you fucking read the whole story? don’t talk when you don’t pay attention
@Benny Lava: do you have sand in your vagina? I thought this was a MK topic, or oh wait..
@Myth: it is a MK topic but i was talking about the first MK, where do you see jax here? about the sand… i should probably get that checked out
Sure,it looks outdated now, but it was ground breaking back then. No other game looked so ‘realistic’ and AFAIK it was the first game ever to digitize live action from actors. Wondering how you get all the mocap action in 3D games nowadays ? Evolution, it had to start somewhere: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CUBAKk64FS8&feature=related :P
Actually, “Pit Fighter” had digitized live actors 2 years before Mortal Kombat was released.
