Updating here isn’t going as swiftly as I’d like, for all the stuff I’m doing elsewhere. Stuff such as my latest work for 1UP, which is now available for all to see: “The Essential 100, No. 22: Mortal Kombat.”

This was one I was eager to do, because it pretty much writes itself as one of those games which, while its quality may be up for debate, has definitely made its mark on history by helping to influence the industry like no other. Plus, I’ve always had a soft spot for the series ever since discovering the first game with my cousin on a trip to California.

Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy that while I get back to work, and hopefully I can actually write something up about my trip to the Wii U launch in NYC sometime before Nintendo announces the Wii V.
