Mortal Kombat Hands-On Preview

There were plenty of announcements this week but nothing stood out quite like Kratos' Mortal Kombat gameplay trailer. The God of War will have more weapons than any other character in the game. He will even have his own timed events in order to achieve the most brutal fatalities. If you can't get enough MK there was also a Mortal Kombat tag team trailer that showed all of us at G4 the power of team work.
