Plug & Play Mortal Kombat

Posted by Mark

Mortal Kombat

I am a HUGE fan of the original Mortal Kombat game. I used to play it non stop back in 1993 in Canada at the arcades and I then got the SNES version and Sega GameGear version to satisfy my addiction. I even wanted to try and get the arcade machine for my house here in Kuwait but I couldn’t find a place that had it.

Mortal Kombat

Anyway I ordered the Plug & Play version of the game last week from Amazon and I got it today and its amazing! They’ve basically squeezed the game into a joypad that runs on AA batteries and you just plug the joypad into the TV and play a version of the game thats extremely close to the arcade original. Its very practical and it costs only KD2!

If you’re interested here is the link to the game on Amazon. [Link]

And if anyone knows where I can buy the arcade machine from please tell me!

Game & Watch

Game and Watch

Anyone remember Nintendo’s Game & Watch? I’m a huge fan of them and since its really easy to buy stuff from eBay now because of PayPal, I think I am going to get a few. Excellent condition ones cost over a $100 and brand new ones cost even more. Makes me wish I had kept mine when I was a kid.

Update: The current bid for an excellent condition LifeBoat Game & Watch is $399 with 11 bids and 2 days still to go! [Link]

Update 2:
Ok, it seems this is the second time I am going through a Game&Watch phase. Found a previous post of mine on the subject. It reminded me though, I still need a boxed SIMON game and a boxed Speak & Spell! [Link]

Anyone know where I can purchase used arcade machines in Kuwait? I am interested in either of the following games:

Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat II, NBA Jam TE or Killer Instinct. The original Sega Rally would be nice but I wouldn’t know how they could fit it through my apartments door.

Rihab Complex Rocks!

Game Station

Marzouq just emailed me this link to an article on the very popular video game website Kotaku. The article talks about how one of the most eagerly anticipated PlayStation3 games, Metal Gear Solid 4 was released in Kuwait ahead of the official release date in the US by a full 3 days. Kuwait always ends up in the news because of the strangest things. The picture above is of some guys posing outside Game Station with their copies of MGS4. So if you want a copy of the game head to Rihab Complex in Hawalli. [Link]

Which Version Of GTA IV Should You Buy? The PS3 or Xbox 360 Version?

Posted by Mark

GTA

The new Grand Theft Auto is already out in some places and probably the most important question people are going to ask is which version is better, the PS3 or the 360? Kotaku tried both versions and have gone ahead and compared the two and the results seem very close. I’ve been wanting to get a PS3 for a while now but it looks like there isn’t a game out yet that makes it worth getting over my 360. [Link]

Update: Game Center in Rihab Complex in Hawalli are selling Grand Theft Auto IV for KD25
