What compels Square-Enix to blanket the gaming landscape with as many simultaneous announcements from the same franchise as they can possibly manage? It’s like they keep their IPs trapped in cages and occasionally a latch fails, allowing sequels and spin-offs to pour out in rapid succession until the door can be forced closed again. Is this a Japanese thing, meant to show off the strength of the franchise? I don’t know. If you know, please tell me. Please?
I ended up buying Mortal Kombat again over the weekend, and not because of the whole PSN situation – that will be at least partially resolved this week (fingers and toes crossed). None of my friends were planning on buying it, so I picked up the PS3 version for the extra character and because the Dual Shock 3 is perfect for MK. And then, of course, all of my friends played my copy of Mortal Kombat, loved it, and bought it on 360, leaving ol’ Trailblazer Thompson swinging in the wind. As luck would have it, Toys R Us had my back, running it on sale this week for $29.99 (sale price of $39.99 - $10 coupon from their in-store magazine)! That’s a deal you should be scrambling to take advantage of, even if you don’t have a bunch of douchebag friends who only think of themselves!
Now that Hulu Plus is up on the 360 dashboard, I figured it was finally time to give it a test drive, aaaaand I don’t think I’ll be joining up anytime soon. I can catch up on 30 Rock and The Office by the end of my free month and jump ship without paying a dime. It kind of pains me to say that, because aside from the constant advertisements, terrible interface, and almost complete lack of anything I want to watch, Hulu Plus seems like a good idea. If they make it easier to use, add more full seasons of more shows, and get rid of the annoying ads, I could totally see myself dropping eight bucks to catch up on whatever Netflix isn’t already streaming.
That’s it for me. If you would like to follow me on Twitter, CLICK HERE or do a search-a-ma-bob for @LittleTMart.
See you Thursday!
