Hi, for all who have disigned this site.
I’m a new member of your site although i don’t know how can i get / download this game (Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance & Mortal Kombat Deception) at free.
If it is possible, please let me know.
Thanks for all…….
Perhaps one didn’t bother noticing through our news stories that Midway helps us with several of our news stories and features? Heck, one only has to look at our front page to see that the producer of the upcoming Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks has a recurring feature on our site. I’m REALLY sure they’d appreciate us helping people pirate their game. :p
Damn, people… just buy the fricking game and support the people making it. I know from first-hand experience that if there’s no money to be made, then there won’t be any future games. This is why Midway doesn’t put out PC versions of the MK games anymore: they didn’t make any money off them. That’s why every piece of software I have is either legally bought and paid for or open-source solutions.
*sigh* Still, it’s kinda discouraging seeing that, you know? I can’t imagine how the designers might feel…
Oh, well. I realize I tend to have a minority view on such things, but all I can do is stick by my guns.
