Can't justify spending that much on a drum kit for a video game. Or in general, anything. And plus, I can't even afford the normal kit now.

We've got an ION kit here at work now, and that thing is AMAZING!  Really really nice, can move the pads around any way you'd like them to be set up (even on-the-fly), 2 zone velocity sensitive, jack in the back to hook it up to the computer for recording as an electronic drum kit...well worth the money indeed.  The cymbals aren't very quiet, but oh well.

Buy the ION kit. Seriously. You're an Expert player, you will fucking love it (I do)

Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero was pretty good, I thought. However, I'm a pretty huge MK fan myself. I actually only ever played the N64 version, so I never got to see game's cutscenes, which is kind of a bummer.
I almost feel kind of bad for those little kids. In this day and age, they'll probably never understand the true beauty of games like MK2.

......don't praise a game that made me kill 3 PS controllers.  Please, for the love of God and all that is holy......

The full-motion video was pretty awesome. Only awesome enough to bring it to the semi-horrible echelon though, haha.

As someone who started gaming during the Atari 2600 days, I know exactly how you feel.  As far as MK goes, I'm a fan of the entire series. Well, except for Special Forces. I never actually got around to playing it, and can't really formulate an opinion off of speculation.

If by horrible, you mean amazing: than yes. I concur. Don't tell me you didn't like that full-motion video of Quan-Chi, or that sweet windy stage where you'd fall off platforms like nobodies business?! Aw, CMON!

Dude, MK Subzero was a horrible, horrible game. But yeah, sometimes kids can be kind of cool.

So I was out day-after-xmas shopping for stuff, because whenever I get money -- I have to spend it like a dumbass. I ventured into Guitar Center to buy a guitar stand and some strings (DR Pure Blues) and while I was waiting in line, started chatting with the people in front of me. Well, by people I mean little kids that were no more than 11 years old, and that they started bugging me about things.

Quan-Chi in the flesh, baby!
So I'm wearing a Mortal Kombat shirt, and the kid is like "hey, you like Mortal Kombat? I got the new one, MK vs DC, and it's pretty cool." And I'm like well yeah, I was a big fan of the older games. He apparantly thought I meant MK Armageddon, to which I just sort of chuckle to myself. So then he brings up Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero, and we start talking about how sweet that game was -- and also how bad Special Forces was. Around this point it occured to me, these kids were probably born after Mortal Kombat II or even 3 came out. That blows my mind. They really missed the MK boat, but it was still somehow culturally relevant today. Apparantly the MK name still sells, despite what the nayers may 'say.' It also goes to show you that I have more in common with an 11 year old kid than people my age. Pretty awesome.

Also of note, is that I was totally looking for a Rock Band 2 drum set today, since you know -- mine is broken in 15 places. I found many sets for both the PS3 and Wii, but no 360 kits seem to exist in the world of large retail chains the day after christmas. Total bummer. Mainly because I don't know how long I can hold onto this money. I'm currently looking into buying a domain for my music and video alike; and also have that be my sort-of portfolio website. Decisions, decisions.
