Got a Mortal Kombat memory?
We used to think that the Mortal Kombat phenomenon was exclusive to those of us alive in the waning days of arcades. But the series has been around for nearly TWENTY YEARS, and the PS2/Xbox releases were pretty stellar, too. Odds are the Outworld has touched you in some way over the past two decades, and we wanna hear about it! Let us know in our forums and we may read your answer LIVE in TalkRadar 148!

In the community

Above: This TDart comes from the ever dependable Batman5273 *virtual chest bump*

    Damn TalkRadar image tricked me into thinking it was going to be a huge cast this week
  • twishart - April 16, 2011 3:54 p.m.

    I don't think I've ever seen a bad Graboids photoshop.
  • sternparez - April 16, 2011 11:48 a.m.

    The games that Tdar really push are usually not quite my thing like MvC3 and alot of Nintendo and comic book stuff but I am LOVING all this MK coverage. I'd decided I was going to get the game when I saw the 1st trailer but the GamesRadar Mortal Kombat this week has really been first class.
  • philipshaw - April 16, 2011 11:19 a.m.

    3 hour podcast, this is why I love you Talkradar. Also Brett is back
  • ShanghaiSix - April 16, 2011 11:14 a.m.

    God damnit yes. There's one thing you have to love about the show; I always learn something new every week. I don't know dick about the MK series, but the first segment with all the MK talk...a live show? I had no idea. Great job as usual, guys. Here are a few extra F5s for you. See you at E3!
  • Nocens - April 16, 2011 10:34 a.m.

    Enjoyed the podcast, especially the butter conversation. Keep'em coming!
  • Zeb364 - April 16, 2011 9:57 a.m.

    Uhhhh...why is Lizzie Mileena? That's not nice, Mileena is horrifying and pretty gross too.
  • Crabhand - April 16, 2011 7:07 a.m.

    TalkRadar, always a good choice.
  • garfunkling - April 16, 2011 7:01 a.m.

    Lizzie totally has a trollface in that pic. HAHAHAHA!!
  • Afrodisiac39 - April 16, 2011 4:02 a.m.

    Yeah talkradar! Yep 8bit SF was pretty damn crowded last time, I saw you Mr. Antista, at the right side near the wall taking a picture during the Glowing Stars performance. I really enjoyed it all though.
  • royalewithcheese - April 16, 2011 2:17 a.m.

    Talkradar: I care.
