Mortal Kombat Fans Showing Great Love for Scorpion

By Kyle Durant

If someone came up to me at random and asked me to name any one Mortal Kombat character, my reply would absolutely be Scorpion. Besides, that “doppelganger” Subzero is a push over since Scorpion essentially defeated him twice. Yea…I went there. Now don’t hate on me Subzero fanboys, hate on those that bought the latest Mortal Kombat by NetherRealm Studios. They’re your true enemies. According to the developers official Twitter, in just 24 hours since the game’s release, online combatants have played as fan favorite Scorpion over twenty million times across both 360 and PS3 platforms!

It’s not just Scorpion who is faring well either. Mortal Kombat is receiving near perfect review scores across the board and seems to be selling well too. After all how many times can one character be used by one person? Let’s just hope that Warner Bros. don’t get any ideas to give Scoprion his own game. Wait, what am I saying!? I need to go and trademark that right now! I’ll call it Scorpion: The Stinger.

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
