Yes, I played more Dead Space 2 last night, and yes, it was still awesome.

But I also played the Mortal Kombat demo, partly because I wanted to make sure my PS3 still worked but mostly to see if I am going to make good on my threat to unload MvC3. The current answer is I have no idea.

Mortal Kombat was definitely very good. It felt almost exactly like I remember MK2 feeling, minus the awkwardness of being next to smelly adolescents while my shoes stuck to the arcade floor. This is definitely an effort to get back to the root of Mortal Kombat, but the way that I play fighting games has changed, so I do not know if playing a fancied up classic is really going to do it for me.


What the hell, that may have been the most arrogant thing I have ever written. I have changed the way I play fighting games, what the fuck is that? Being slightly worse than mediocre at Street Fighter doesn't give me the right to turn my nose up at other games just because they aren't what I am playing right now. The truth is that I haven't changed the way I play fighting games, ever, and everyone else has. I get out of the gates fast but never really improve, so getting in on the ground floor on the new Mortal Kombat is probably an excellent idea. I don't know how much I like the game because there was no practice mode in the demo for me to figure out what juggled unto what with Scorpion. Everything looked disjointed and silly because I was mashing the shit out of my dual shock controller wishing it was an arcade stick, but that doesn't mean it will always be that way.

I really should read over what I write more often. When I sound like an ass to myself things have really gone off the rails.
