So I’ve been playing through Mortal Kombat X, and I have to express amusement at the way injuries only seem to count during cutscenes. I’ll admit, I’ve been out of the loop on the Mortal Kombat series for quite some time, so it’s likely this isn’t a new development for the franchise, but it really seems funny to me the way the characters can stab each other in the face, snap each other’s necks, and rip each other’s organs out, and yet once the battle comes to an end, the two will resume talking as if nothing happened. Yet in some cutscenes, a person will die or suffer terrible injury from actions that aren’t anywhere near as brutal as the fights themselves. What makes it more confusing is that the story mode doesn’t allow fatalities for (I guess) this very reason, yet the X-ray movies are almost every bit as violent. Oh Mortal Kombat, you really bring the logic. Ah well. Vidja games.

Alright guys, today I’ve got two videos for you! The first is my reaction to the amazing third and final trailer for Avengers: Age of Ultron. There’s some truly incredible new footage, and I couldn’t be more excited for this movie to just come out already.
And the next would be the first episode of my Let’s Play of Five Nights at Freddy’s 3, which I think is a huge step up from the previous games. The cameras were mostly a distraction before, making the core gameplay more about sticking to a pattern that covers all your bases for defending yourself. This time, the extras have been stripped away so that the main focus can actually become watching the animatronic on the cameras. Even though stripping away so many features seems like it would be a step back, it actually makes the game more terrifying, plus the game seems to have figured out ways to include the rest of the gang by making them non-lethal hazards that could open you up to death if not handled properly.
It seems today is a day for threes, so I’ll throw in a third video that doesn’t come from myself to keep the theme going. On the topic of Avengers, Nerdist News uncovered some secrets in that trailer that are far more amazing than my speculation:
Seriously, that’s some amazing nerd sleuthing. I totally missed the Crimson Cowl nod, and the clues to the forming of the Masters of Evil? It’s so well hidden, yet so many pieces are there that it seems almost obvious! My hat is off to you, Nerdist!
