April 24 - U




Game

Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 (Midway) - Of all fighting games for the home console, my friends and I played this one the most.  It didn't matter what was going on, we could always get a game together.  With a list of special moves, fatalities, babalities, animalities, and other 'alities', on paper crumpled from being fought over and stained from having Bubba cola spilled all over it, we would hurl insults and challenges all night, with necks craned to get the best view our respective avatars bouncing and punching about on the 26" tv screen.
This game was the ultimate!  Just look at the selection of fighters! On some consoles there were over 25 fighters to choose from!

Special Mentions: Ultima, Unreal Tournament

Music

Unwritten Law - I love these fellows.  It was when I heard this song (or maybe this one) that I got back into playing the guitar.  SoS covers some of their music.

Special Mentions: U2 - they're huge and I love their music but Unwritten Law made a bigger impression on my life, Underoath

      Inspired by certain representations of the Irish Fomori.

    Used to play Unread Tournament at work all the time. Instead of working, of course!

  3. Ah. Yes. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Another favorite of mine from the SNES era. There's nothing quite like the satisfaction you getting after landing a well-timed uppercut. LOL.

  4. MK3, I have a friend who would wake up play this til he had to go to school come home play it til he had to go to bed and then all weekend. No joke no one could beat him. It was like he was part of the game or something, lol. The only time I beat him was when I got a copy of it on Sega and the Katana Fan move was up start c and I just kept putting him in the air. Good times.
