Mortal Kombat Finishes PAX and Challenges the Web With a Series

This year at PAX East 2011 Mortal Kombat made a glorious 15th-coming thanks to WB Games and Netherrealm Studios who were very pleased with the fact that the game has gone back to its roots after a few attempts at 3D versions of the franchise. To be fair the last iteration of the game was rated "T" for teen and was very mild compared to what we've come to expect. I'm happy to say that problem has been solved as special moves and fatalities are augmented more than ever by slow motion cut scenes that don't interrupt game play and take fatalities to the next level. There is also a new "tag mode" where you can switch characters back and forth similar to almost any other fighting game that's been around forever. If that wasn't awesome enough, a new web series is on the horizon that just might make up for all those terrible movies over the years.

Sci Fi fans and game enthusiasts, hit the break to find out why the web series has a chance at flawless victory over the web and see the first video.

What are the things you might expect in an MK web series? One is insane fighting, another is gritty action with little regard for human life and another would be ridiculous fatalities that turn your stomach. Now let's take that masochist's dream put Jeri Ryan on top. Wait, Seven of Nine Jeri Ryan? Yes, indeed. She will be playing Sonya Blade which is the complete opposite of what we're used to seeing and that alone is enough to blow my mind. Take a look at the video and you'll understand what I mean.
