Buried games better left buried: Tattoo Assassins


2:45 PM on 12.20.2006



Oh, Mortal Kombat. Though you were pretty much created as a cheap American answer to the Street Fighter craze of the 90s, you became so much more. You were a landmark title in the game industry: You gave us beautiful fatalities, graphics that were stunning and shockingly realistic for their time, and helped to spark the birth of the rating system all games now use. But, like any great success, you had your share of ripoffs imitators trying to ride the bloody wave of your awesomeness, like the obscure, and probably better left forgotten Tattoo Assassins.

This offensively clunky, horrendously ugly, and utterly sucktacular crapfest featuring warriors who battled to the death using the raging power given to them by their tattoos, boasted about 2196 fatalities, which would be impressive if any of them were any good. Alas, Mortal Kombat, while you inspired and excited many of us, it seems that there are some who would have been better off left untouched by your greatness.

Knights of the Old Republic and other Star Wars media no longer considered canon

That's a nice extended universe you've got there, Star Wars. It'd be a shame if it were invalidated. Actually, that's exactly what's happening. Lucasfilm announced just that today via the official Star Wars blog, where it wa...more
