A problem with days like today is that it's hard to take certain news stories seriously. Especially when you know the history of certain companies or subjects. For example... at TUAW they posted an article that was discovered on TRMK about Mortal Kombat possibly coming to the iPhone and iPod Touch. I commented:

"Right now I doubt this is real especially considering what day it is. But even if it is I doubt controlling the characters via motion control like that would make it nearly as easy to control as with a gamepad or fighting joystick. With the latter being my preferred method to control fighting games such as this. This is especially true if you are trying to do a combo move that starts with the character jumping diagonally and then you have to double tap a direction and then press a button to do a special move. Then imagine the moves where you have to hold down a button, do a tapping motion on a movement and then press a button. To be honest, playing it on MAME on a Mac (especially with the right control) is a lot better.. hell, even playing one of the many console versions or on the Nintendo DS would be better." (BTW, you can replace Mac with PC in my comment if that's your persuasion.. it's just that I was posting on a Mac centric site so I said Mac.)

Then of course the creators of Mortal Kombat have on purpose leaked rumors just to stir up interest in the past. Then fans have also made up rumors and hoaxes such as screenshots of fake character and other junk and sent them to places like gaming magazines just for their two seconds of fame. This isn't the first time they would have made up a fake version for the internet anyway... I don't remember exactly how it went but they have done something similar before.

I'm just putting a skeptical mind on this for now.

Here is a review

This sounds like a really cool game to me. Some really cool things about it for me is that it takes place during the Mortal Kombat II era which as some of you might know is my favorite era in Mortal Kombat. The difference here is that more things are interactive like you can fight the guards that usually where just in the background in the first two games and you can do things like make the trees at the living forest eat your opponents and of course it's a adventure action game kind of like devil may cry.

A really cool thing also is how after you beat the game with Liu Kang and Kung Lao (I actually prefer Kung Lao out of those two) you can then play as Scorpion and Sub-zero! Then if you find Smoke in certain places you can unlock the original arcade Mortal Kombat II game which is a neat bonus. I just hope it's the actual REAL arcade version rather than a crap port like what you usually get at home most ports of the original 3 games are flawed in some way or another. I usually play them through M.A.M.E. to get the most authentic experience short of getting the arcade cabinets.

"If you don't understand Mortal Kombat, this isn't the game for you. But if you do get it, especially if you loved the first two arcade games, this IS the game for you."

I happen to be a fiend for those two games so this game really IS for me! I'd be playing it and going memmmmmmoriesssssssss like Ren lol

BTW on a totally different note, there is one thing that I didn't quite touch upon before is the difference between broadband and baseband. The difference is you get one service on baseband and on broadband you get more than one service on the same cable. For example cable internet is broadband because you get both cable TV and internet through the same cable. So a T1 line for example probably could be considered baseband because you only get internet through that connection.

They are talking about token ring networks right now. I have a multitasking brain ;) I am always doing a few things at once for example I'm usually talking to Adia on the phone and doing things on my computer so I have more than enough attention to listen to the instructor and be doing this update in fact I don't even need to look at the computer I'm not looking now I'm watching the teacher lol

I did do a little proofreading during break on this.
