There is some comedy in the fatalities but when I saw Kitana being ripped in two by Noob the first time I felt pretty bad...

I've come to the sudden hilarious and slightly disturbing realisation that those mocap blokes probably did the capture for all the characters...

Neat though I'm more curious about the challenges they faced with the babalities as well as seeing some of the outtakes on the fatalities.

Very interesting stuff. I always love to get a look behind the scenes to see what's happening to make these products what they are. After playing, of course; don't wanna spoil the magic.

They should show off some of the bloopers, but still put it in game, so we see the game characters falling over and shit, instead of the mocap dudes. That would be pretty cool :p

This answers a lot of questions, but I still have one burning question: 
 
After Sonya's first fatality, did it really have to look like she had a gigantic menstrual stain?

 Is Ed Boon directing those dudes mo-capping the Netherrealm stage fatality? That's fucking great. 
 And Carlos Pesina is still doing performance work for the fighters? What a fuckin' champ!
 
Oh, also:
