Mooortaaaaal Kooombaaaat! (II)

February 1995

X-Force #43

I don’t know about you, but Mortal Kombat was one of my absolute favorite series of games back in the day! I had (and actually still have, but just haven’t played in years) MKII for Game Gear, and while it was awesome, I don’t think I ever got particularly good at it. I’ll just blame that on the format – when you take a fighting game as rich and complex as this and have to scale it down for a portable system that only has two action buttons, it’s definitely going to lose a bit.

Mortal Kombat 3 (actually Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3) was the one I really got into. I had that one for Genesis, so that was as fully functional as it gets! However, when I first glanced at this ad, I thought it actually was from MK3 – I don’t remember MKII having Friendships or Shao Kahn at all! I guess I was just never good enough at it to get to see those…

CBA IRL – Iron Sword

So a buddy came over with a bunch of NES games, and check out what one of them was – Iron Sword: Wizards & Warriors II!

Fabio looks just as fabulous here as he does in the ad!

Fabio-lous Action!

December 1989

Wonder Woman #37

While you might associate Fabio with a more… umm… romantic… type of action, here he is as a tough, manly barbarian in order to sell video games – Iron Sword: Wizards & Warriors II, specifically.

I find it interesting that the “ultimate warrior” doesn’t seem to have any battle scars… I guess maybe he’s just so good that no one can touch him (except the ladies, of course)!
