I could open here with a retread of my history with Mortal Kombat, a history which starts in 1992 and takes place over not one, but two whole decades, featuring a glut of games, a couple of movies, a terrible cartoon series and me getting beaten up in the arcades for real. But that can wait, I'll bore you another day.
Today, I'll share my initial thoughts on NetherRealm's latest entry to their flagship fighting game series, thoughts formed over lengthy sessions with last weekend's closed beta. On the cusp of a new generation, Ed Boon and co. have returned to the brand which made them a major name in the industry. So let's find out whether MK 11 is shaping up to be another slice of gory glory, or whether the franchise is running run out of the red stuff.
