Mortal Kombat Vs. Portal 2: FIGHT!


Two highly anticipated games come out today — Portal 2 and the new Mortal Kombat. Obviously, the two games are targeting very different audiences, but surely there’s some of you who are interested in both games, but can only afford one.

Allow me to present this argument: Portal 2 is a game filled with exciting action-puzzle gameplay, an intriguing plot which continues directly from the first hit game, and contains what is likely some of the best game scriptwriting ever. Mortal Kombat is a fighting game whose sole claim to fame is its gory Fatalities, which you can watch here for free.

The Stage Fatalities are here, and the Babalities are here. Hope this helps you guys. JK Simmons and I know you’ll make the right decision.
