    Red Xenomorph

    The new MK video-games offer awesome and offbeat fighting characters or avatars including Jason Voorhees and the Xenomorph (from the Alien sci-fi horror films), so I thought I'd offer up a special MK-fanfiction about the nonstandard Red Xenomorph making its way onto a new human gaming platform...

    Kitana's Government

    Kitana/Mileena Desiging government models in Outworld based on the leadership of Raiden requires a handsome dosage of monarchy-creativity, since of course, the 'female angels' of Mortal Kombat (e.g., Kitana, Mileena) represent imaginative kinds of social ornamentation. This sort of video-game...

    Kitana's Government

    Kitana is my favorite MK female character, so I decided to devote a special section describing her potential future 'reign' over Outworld under the tutelage of the original MK tournament champion, Raiden (god of lighting!). Thanks for reading, ==== "Kitana was appointed to become the Queen...

    Raiden and Scarlet

    Ermac/Kitana I'm personally really psyched about the 'aesthetic feel' of this approach to Raiden fan-lore, so here's a final addendum about some politics-exposure for the master of lightning from Mortal Kombat. Thanks for reading, ==== Well, as it stood, Raiden was about to get a new...

    Raiden and Scarlet

    Chapter 2: The Green Recruits This is a second chapter describing Raiden and Scarlet having to possibly come out of peaceful retirement to witness the vengeance aspirations of two intriguing females, Jade (semi-heroic female assassin and once-servant of Shao Khan and friend of Princess Kitana)...

    Raiden and Scarlet

    I've always been a big fan of the Mortal Kombat character Raiden (god of lightning) and consider him a true mainstay of the iconic video game franchise which now includes full-length films. This short-story about Raiden falling in love with a female swordsman and sorceress named Scarlet...

    NES Classic

    NINTENDO vs. SEGA? I love the NES Classic, and there are two definitive sports games from that 'vintage era' that really mark the dividing line between the NES and the well-realized Sega Genesis --- Tecmo Bowl (Nintendo) and World Championship Soccer (Sega). Playing with the Miami Dolphins on...

    Short Story thread

    Alastair: A Russian Vampire This tale was inspired by Russian vampirism folklore. Here's a cool link: Vampireunderworld.com This tale was also inspired by the ninja Mortal Kombat character Smoke (a warrior of odd appearance who seems to signify some natural curiosity about gender...

    The Dinotopia Chatroom: MK/TrumpUSA

    Traffic Lights? It might prove market-savvy to do a study of TV 'couture' and its relationship to 'community values' (in relation to modern-traffic issues such as immigration/multiculturalism, networking/Internet, commerce/ethics). That's what makes me optimistic about 'TrumpUSA'... ====...

    What do you collect?

    I used to collect baseball cards (I own the 1986 Topps Traded set), video games (I own Tecmo Bowl, Mario Bros., and Kings of the Beach), and comic books (I own X-Men, Hulk, Harley Quinn, and Wonder Woman comics), but now I'm getting interested in various kinds of Christianity-themed (crusades...

    Cyrax

    Substance Ideas? Cyrax arguably boasts the coolest self-destruct feature/mortality attack in the history of the MK franchise. This makes Cyrax a terrific complement to Erron Black, the outlander-type 'cowboy wanderer' prone avatar. In fact, a Cyrax vs. Erron Black confrontation makes for...

    Are old action movies better than the modern ones?

    Comic Books The popularity of comic book characters and adapted films such as Iron Man 3 gives us a new breed of action-adventure intrigue villains such as Aldrich Killian (Guy Pearce) and creates a different kind of 'bravado storytelling.' It's that simple... ==== KILLIAN: You're too...

    Awesome Kitana fan-comic by Luiz Mictian

    Oracle of Romance?? Kitana is so under-appreciated and is always overshadowed by Mileena (IMO). Most gamers prefer Kitana's more devious twin Mileena, but Kitana's fans make her unique and a great foil for Baraka's blades, Kung Lao's metal hat, and even Raiden's electricity. Kitana fan-comics...

    Dreams

    The Adventures of Ramanujan I had a really strange one where I dreamt I was on a weekend-retreat of prominent scholars/professors including Ramanujan but the weekend-retreat was being interrupted by the terrifying Leatherface running around with his distinctive chainsaw. I managed to...

    Stephen King's IT - REMAKE

    Devil of a Good Time(?) The trailer for this gives me the creeps. It looks just as good as the Tim Curry miniseries one from 1990... When I think of Pennywise, I think of Shiva (Hindu god of destruction), so I don't feel to frightened (hey I need a stabilizing force to deal with a freak like...

    Official NHL Thread

    The Penguins are up 2-0 in the Stanley Cup Finals, and boy am I giddy! Maybe Sidney Crosby will achieve what no other athlete in no other field of sports has been able to achieve --- overshadowing the monstrous LeBron James (NBA).

    Official Basketball Thread

    That Magic Feeling! I really enjoyed watching the 2000 NBA Finals (Lakers-Pacers), because I followed the Pacers that season who were very entertaining. I was a supporting fan of the Reggie Miller-Jalen Rose tandem on the Indiana Pacers which produced a great deal of solid basketball before...

    The Dinotopia Chatroom: MK/TrumpUSA

    The Celebrity Fix Look, I'm not implying that I intend to formalize/intellectualize Starbucks culture, but what I would like to do is draw attention to the peculiar sociological fact that American society is seemingly focused on the psychological 'impact' of a 'convenience-based lifestyle'...

    Future Possibilities for Raiden

    Batman+Robin? I agree with the respect for the tournament-feel of the MK franchise, and the storytellers never really worked on any of the romance-lines to develop anything interesting, so all we're left with is some nice 'cuteness' between Johnny/Sony, but I'm still hopeful (maybe there will...
