Awakened is a game that may very well be brilliant

There once was a game called Hero, a Midway project about customizable superheroes that looked incredibly promising, but was sunk when the publisher collapsed. Many of the game's developers have banded together under the nam...

Mortal Kombat fatalities look good on paper

Can you imagine what the world might be like without fatalities? I'm having a difficult time conjuring up a vision of that. A number of Congressional hearings would have been different and the ESRB might have taken a bit lon...

Scorpion and Sub Zero teamed up in canceled 'Fire & Ice'

Remember back in the early days of Xbox LIVE Arcade? When Digital Eclipse went crazy with porting any and all old-school favorites to the service? And games were only five bucks? Yeah. Those were some swell times. Midway prop...

The Sonya Blade that could have been: Cameron Diaz

Here's a not-so-new but interesting bit of information you might not have known -- actress Cameron Diaz was originally cast in a role for 1995's Mortal Kombat film. Diaz, who had her "big break" with The Mask in 1994, was ori...

John Woo wants to make another Stranglehold game

What can one say about John Woo's Stranglehold? We could say that the demo was awesome. We could also say that Midway should have just released the demo at retail and charged two bucks for it, rather than stretch it out into ...
