God, I would totally buy the rights for Mortal Kombat. And then rape the license. Mortal Kombat vs. Clayfighters. Mortal Kombat Goes To Pac-Land. Mortal Kombat Animal Crossing. They wouldn't be the greatest games, but I bet I could do a better job with the franchise than Midway did.

So the license is up for sale now. Midway isn't doing so hot lately, and selling off one of their most popular games is how they're trying to bail themselves out. The publisher is seeking an “execution of an asset purchase agreement for the sale of Midway’s Mortal Kombat franchise assets,” according to court documents.

What is Midway without Mortal Kombat. though? Not much, right?

And here's a move that will want to make you rip out their spines: It seems that the Midway people selling off these properties (they just sold Wheelman) are paying themselves millions in bonuses, and they're using the cash that was previously promised to canned employees.
