A quick addendum regarding the previous post…

Apparently the pic came out a bit clearer on my phone than it did on the actual post, as at least one person has had difficulty in telling what the game I took a picture of was. The game is called The Grid, and it’s a game the MK development team worked on between Mortal Kombat 4 and Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. It’s a third-person shooter deathmatch style game, similar to Quake III Arena and Unreal Tournament. It’s very rare; the few people I know who have seen it were MK Online staff members who saw it at the Midway studios. I’m rather shocked I got to see it, and just had to play a round or two. It’s a bit too bad it never made it to wide release; maybe the Midway people should consider releasing it to Xbox Live Arcade…

Anyway, yes, I’m still in Jackson visiting Misty. I’ll have a full report of what I did when I get back. For now, I’m just going to get some rest as I have a bit of a long day ahead of me tomorrow. We’ll see how it goes…

  1. When I lived in Alpharetta, near Atlanta, the mall had this game. 3 machines. I played that game on an almost daily basis. My trip to Jacksonville last year, I saw it at the mall in Orange Park. I never did beat it though. Spent a month trying to get past the 5th tower. 10 kills in one minute I believe the condition was. Game was fun as hell though.

    But damn, there was only one machine? The ones I played were sets of 3 and 4. Great for single player, yeah, but that thing needs at least two just to even play against anyone.

  2. I did get to play a few rounds of the Grid at my trip to Midway in 2004, and it was indeed very fun! A shame it wasn’t as succesful as hoped.
