New Screensaver

Merry Christmas, everyone! And just in time for the holidays, here's an excellent winter-themed screensaver:

Hopefully, at some point down the road I'll be able to go back to regular updates. Not any time in the immediate future, but it would be nice to go back to posting comics and animations and stuff.

In the mean time, if any MK fans have any web experience and would like to provide some extra assistance, help would be welcomed. The Kombat Pavilion has pretty much been a one-man show for the last 15 years, so a helping hand might be nice and ensure more frequent updates. :)

Thanks go to DraftMazda for making today's update possible (and by that I mean, actually creating the screensaver).

New Font

Hey Pavilion fans. I have to say I'm sorry for my long absence from the MK scene. It's been a while, probably the longest time ever without an update. Just been incredibly busy.

I saw something this morning (which has probably been out for a while) that caught my attention, and I had to share it with you all. There is now a font based on the MK title. This has been a long time coming, and even though a few people I know of have been experimenting with the idea, finally someone has completed it. Check it out:

Thanks go to baglio for completing it! Of course, check out the fonts section for even more MK fonts.

Just a quick udpate to give you all a new MK screen saver:

Thanks go to YourOwnScreensaver for putting this together. Check out their site for other fun free screensavers based on popular video games, movies, and more! And of course, there are plenty of other Mortal Kombat screen savers right here.

RIP Randy Solem

This is a sad update. Randy Solem, 36, has just passed away. Randy owned and mained Video Game Director's Cuts and created wonderful Mortal Kombat Flash animations such as Mortal Kombat Director Cuts and Mortal Kombat O.J. Style. More famously, he created Rise of the Mushroom Kingdom, which changed Mario Flash animations forever.

Randy will be gone, but not forgotten. The family is requesting donations be made in his memory to the Trust for his daughter in lieu of flowers. Please see this link for more information.

Mortal Kombat Comics

There have been many MK comics, some of these are a bit dated (it will be obvious based on the subject matter). Nevertheless, they're quite enjoyable and might take you back to the release of a previous MK game. Enjoy, Pavilion fans!

More Kombat Kontent is around the corner.

Reptile's Puns

It seems like it wasn't all that long ago that Wikipedia was reporting that Mortal Kombat's Reptile was famous for making puns. Now, MUGEN fans have begun to find a way to have Reptile make puns in mid-battle. As if this weren't enough, Shao Kahn even laughs at them! If this seems to too silly, and/or too awesome, to be true, then check the vid below:

So look out for MK Project Online, floating around somewhere out there in cyberspace, and keep track of the MKPYouTube channel for progress updates on this.

Abobo's Big Adventure, plus Upcoming MK HD Remix with MUGEN

In case you haven't heart, Abobo's Big Adventure is out, and it is one massive piece of eight-bit heaven. It promises to be the "Ultimate Tribute to the NES," and - while true - it is not 100% exclusively the NES console that it pays tribute to. Case in point, Mortal Kombat references (both of which can be seen below):

This game must be played immediately. It is currently the #1 rated game on Newgrounds, and for good reason. So go play it over there now!

In other news, some folks over at the TRMK forum were a tad disappointed about the cancelled Mortal Kombat Arcade HD Kollection. And who can blame them? Rather than mope and complain about it, they decided to do something about it, and put together their own not-for-profit high-definition. Their thread has already reached over 150 pages, and has even caught the eye of the Mortal Kombat development team, who were impressed by what they saw. Check out the thread now.

One of the contributers, calactyte, has created high-def versions of some of the fonts used in the MK1 arcade game. He has graciously agreed to allow them to be posted here. So without further ado:

No release date has been announced, but you can be sure that the Kombat Pavilion will be following this exciting project.
