The only reason Mortal Kombat was good!


We all know the only reason the original Mortal Kombat's were good was the fatalities. Now you don't have to subject yourself to plying through an entire fight to see them! That includes the 3-D ones.   read

Great movie game or the greatest movie game? Also, dolphins!

This one holds a special place in my heart. It bring memories of Mountain Dew and late nights spent with Mario Kart 64 and Street Fighter, which is why I find it hard to believe that not many people bring it up as an example of making a great game based on a movie. I was recently listening to a slightly old RetroforceGO! and the only good movie game anyone could think of was Chronicles of Riddik, which disappoints me. I think most people might have guessed the game I am talking about. It's Goldeneye! Goldeneye was a very fun single player game, but an amazing multi-player event every time you could get four people in the same room. The sad thing is the next 007 game was nothing in comparison. Why do you think very few movie games have been hits? Is it the creators? The rush to release them at the same time as the movie? Or is it just that uninformed people will buy them no matter what?

On an unrelated note, I recently got back from a vacation to Savannah, Georgia. While we were there, we went on a boat tour. That boat tour was called... Dolphin Magic. It was about 80 degrees and the dolphins were playing and jumping and surfing in the wake. In a word, amazing! There was even a smaller baby dolphin playing with its mother. Be jealous.   read

Long time gamer, first time poster.

Hi everybody! I've been coming to Destructoid for over a year, but only recently made a profile. I just wanted to be able to be a part of the great community that has been built here. I've been playing video games my whole life. The first game I ever beat was the first Mega Man when I was five years old, followed by the original Mario Brothers. In fact, my parents probably still have the picture they took of me standing next to the ending screen of Mario. I still play my old consoles, especially my beloved SNES. I also, however have both the Wii and Xbox 360, and all of the previous generation consoles. I am addicted to puzzle games as well as fighters, and really wish great arcades were more widespread. I live in Ohio, which means I hate where I live, haha. I hope to be a good contributor and will try to keep the fail to a minimum. I promise.   read
