    I like how the MK Franchise has turned into this crazy hyped cinematic experience, but it’s all 100% due to Midway’s death being merged/owned by WB. The amount of funding they are giving Netherrealm must be absolutely mindblowing. LITERALLY. (guffaw)

    That song came out in 2001, one year before I graduated. Back then I was
    still playing Mortal Kombat Trilogy on PS1 with Mortal Kombat Deadly
    Alliance on the horizon for 2002. Now it’s 2015 and I’ll be playing
    Mortal Kombat X on PS4. I don’t know what the point of this comment is,
    but hell what a time to be alive.
