Kombat Week: Readers strike back

We put the feelers out there to see if you readers had anything to say on the subject of an entire week of Mortal Kombat, and you responded beautifully! First up is something I put together, but it was based on a suggestion from Marcus J. on Twitter that made me laugh. Everybody put on their sunglasses…NOW!

Next up, unofficial TalkRadar videographer, flabslapper whipped up a lovely little Fatality retrospective. It ain’t as comprehensive as ours, but judging by all the shit we did last week, we certainly can’t fault his choice of music.

Catwood took things in a different direction. And by “different,” I mean “drunk!” Boozery aside, he actually presents viewers with a fairly dope little quiz. First he describes an outlandish Fatality, then asks you to decide whether they’re real or fake. The answers... may SHOCK you!

And be sure to check out these M-Rated pics of MK artistery!

Above: We liked Batman5273’s MK vs GR art so much, we made it the official front page art of TalkRadar 147 

Above: Whereas graboids decided only one member of GR was fit to don the MK cloth

Above: Bobbety and poiman teamed up to create a podcast plug most fierce!

Above: Is Sensationo sensationalizing the nerfing that occurred in MK vs DC? Dunno, but it made us lol in our pants

Above: DontMessWithMeImRunningOutOfPlacesToHideTheBodies modifies an unlockable joke from the Krypt with a staff member’s face, so it counts too!

Above: YES! Another winner from poiman... no matter what the hell it may mean

Thanks a million, everyone! See ya next theme week.

    I know I'm late here but, @japanaman How are ANY of your suggestions better or "less lazy" than what they used? Seriously, shut the fuck up.

    Another great TalkRadar/GamesRadar Community Spotlight! Great job by everyone!

    O.K., you guys are just getting plain lazy! The stab wound should have had Baraka picking an opponent up on his blade from MK II. The cold as ice gag should have had Stryker from MK9 shoot Sub-Zero point blank in the head. Something caught her? You guys could have hed the Spiked Ceiliing catch her, Sub-Zero's ground icicle, the gears from MK: Deception, or the trees from MK9. Speed kills could have EASILY been the car from MK9 that runs over people or people getting hit by the Subway car in MK3. Something to hide? You should have had Reptile turn invisible, then knock somebody into the Acid Pit. THe blast should have featured Stryker using dynamite in MK3. You should have had somebody getting shot up by Jax from MK Vs DC Universe when worlds collide. Taken for a ride? No comment. Brazil? You guys are clearly running out of ideas.

    Video was awsome.

    The first video was, dare I saw...FLAWLESS

    I too don't really give two shits about Mortal Kombat but yes that compilation was hilarious. Unfortunately that show has ruined a perfectly great Who song.
  • hanktherapper - April 19, 2011 2:29 a.m.

    I don't care about Mortal Kombat and barely read any of the articles. However, it was all worth it for the CSI: Miami video.

    I believe the Liu Kang Chicken refers to the FAP in which Chris tries to imitate the battle cry of the bicycle kick and immediately after the attempt contemplates how it resembles a sound of a chicken. Anyway the Krime Sc(k?)ene Investigation was awesome!!
  • flabslapper - April 19, 2011 2:20 a.m.

    holy sh!t dude that vid you made was awesome! @OneToBoner you might say that fatality video killed you YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
  • DarkTone - April 19, 2011 2:05 a.m.

  • OneToBoner - April 19, 2011 1:55 a.m.

    Oh my lord. The first video killed me.
