I feel kind of sad that the first thing I thought of when I read AC Current's name was the fact that it is redundant. Gotta get outta the lab.

I can't believe they have all those fatalities. I bet thats most of the programming.

that's the "MORPH TATTOO" mentioned previous

you get to pick one of three specials after you pick a character

I don't know what that tester thinks he remembers, but that button combination didn't work, putting aside the fact that he said "right" instead of back or forward, and he didn't specify which punch.

I like how one of Luke's fatalities is basically just shiv'ing a guy. No frills, just a prison-made "knife" to the gut...

I just realized that "Billy Two Moons" is probably a take-off of Billy Jack!

So you didn't like the digitized actors in Mortal Kombat? I always figured that waswhat made it so popular, aside from the fatality and blood.
Anyway, great article. Where can we find the rom?

The digitized actors were entertaining because they were so corny, and you knew that one guy played all the ninjas.

What made MK popular was the blood and the fatalities, and the fact that the game still played well for a fighter.

Also, because they're both supposed to be Native American (but don't look the slightest bit Native American), and they both wear the same hat.

I think there's pics at the bottom of this review.

A friend of mine told me he played a game in Kansas city where you could slice someone's dick off with a lot of blood, and it had nude-alities. He even described the characters.

I thought he was full of shit. I need to find my 4rth grade yearbook cause I owe someone an apology. To be fair would anyone in my shoes have believed him?

You owe him part of an apology because there is no dick-slicing fatality.

Billy doing a nudality on himself and then dancing was the greatest thing created by man up to this point.

Ow my lungs. I haven't laughed this hard in a long time.

I only wish Midway had hired the brilliant mind that dreamed up shitting cooked turkeys at someone as a fatality.

Can anyone explain the constant references to fine art...? It reminds me of when Ebert said video games were not art.

Let's check the checklist for this game.
1) Idiotic names? Check.
2) Stereotypes? Check.
3) Puns? ...Ugh, check.
4) Many, MANY "WTF" Moments? ...Check.

Am I missing anything?

I believe all the fine art crap was thrown in for reason #4 on your list.

Just a thought (and a very late one, at that), but if they were so ballsy as to call the newspaper in the game fucking "Disneyland", then why not go ahead and make the DeLoreon in the fatality into the "Back To The Future" time machine? It would have been a cool nod to Bob Gale's contribution to the game (not that I imagine he ever claims this piece of garbage).
