Mortal Kombat has seized control of Earth with the new viral video of a re-imagined MK world. We are introduced to this "realistic" take on Mortal Kombat by Jackson Briggs: y'all know him as
So, just a few minutes ago I had a unique experience that I would like to share with you all. I was tooling around on "The Destiny Prognostication Machine," my new 15-inch 2.66 GHz MacBook Pro (the new has yet to wear off, so I haven't started calling it something lame like 'my computer' or 'my laptop' instead always using the full statistics or title) when the doorbell rang. Me being a lazy sunnovabitch and it being my day off, I looked down to find myself wearing only a cami top and my Transformers PJ pants. This was hardly decent attire with which to be answering the door, so I grabbed an orange hoodie which nicely complemented the flame wreathed autobot symbol on my pants and opened the door.
With E3 coming to us next week, I couldn’t help but think of the bazillions of sequels to existing IPs that are inevitably going to be announced. With stuff like Dead Space 2, Infamous 2, Little Big Planet 2, Kane & Lynch 2, Dead Rising 2, Batman: Arkham Asylum 2 and all the other twos that are headed are way soon, one can only wonder if this is a good or a bad thing. While some might argue that having so many sequels might devalue the series and take the spotlight away from the new stuff, there are plenty of great things about sequels that make them great.
If you were like me, you hunted down any version of Kekkaishi you could- if only because it's an anime you had not seen yet. The first episode of Kekkaishi is a free download available on the Playstation Network, and it is also available on Adult Swim's video section. I decided to go with Adult Swim.
Adult Swim's version is dubbed in English. I don't know if that makes a difference. My problem is not mainly with the voice acting. My problem is that I got a bad case of the first episode exposition blues. Kekkaishi could be the worst offender in terms of overuse of exposition.
