It's a tragedy. It's such a shame so few of us appreciate the finer things in MK like that carpet. See it's not just a simple carpet. It's an important part of the MK mythos and atmosphere. The carpet and the bank is a metaphor for the entire MK3 story. The blood red carpet in a bank symbolizes the capolitistic, materialistic greed of modern American society and how we will pay for our arrogance. We get rich and fat with our SUVs and cell phones oblivious to the dangers and problems in other parts of the world(represented in MK3 by Shao Kahn and Outworld). We ignored the warnings and look at what happened. The bank and it's carpet is an indictment of America's greed and a chilling prediction of things to come. I have a feeling it was removed because the symbolism was too deep and thought provoking for a video game in 1995. We just weren't ready for it.

Carpet>All

I remember seeing the Tower statues before, but forgot. Then I was reminded by the MKII vid in MAT2.

Oh, that red carpet is the one I was talking about, not the one with the gold border, dreemernj.

Hey Kombat, seriously, why isn’t this thread a sticky yet???

This thread disserves to be a sticky and remain up there along side the others. Its just as good and probably better. I love all those cool movie updates!

You should also create sticky thread in the Movies Forum that has this extra stuff. Many people actually visit that place, and not some many visit the classic forums now days.

Anyway, great stuff man, make this a sticky already and keep updating if you still have more.

You'll have to excuse me, I got confused with the Double missle in trilogy. The homing missle was deffinitely in UMK3 and atleast the home versions of mk3 but I can't get it to work on MAT for some reason. Maybe it wasn't in the arcade version of mk3, but more likely MAT is just messed up.

I thought you meant some really early version of MK3 didn't have it. The homing missile was in all the revisions of MK3 and UMK3 in the arcade, and the home systems. Its even in the long video ]{ posted of gameplay on the extremely early version of it.

It is in MAT, too. Just try to do precisely halfcircle starting from forward (not downforward) and followed by HP.
Death is the only way out...

MAT MK3 is messed up though, I try to do an uppercut after cyrax's net, but 99% of the time it goes right through them and doesn't hit. I have never seen this with any other version.

na. that's just the nature of the robot uppercut. It doesnt have a far reach. It's the same in mk3, umk3, and trilogy.

no because the green net is suposed to bring them close to you until they can't come any closer, it's just for some reason when they're in the net it doesn't work most of the time. I have NEVER experiance it with trilogy.

Thats just how the arcade game is. Its like that in MK3 and UMK3. Nothing messed up about MAT.

Anyone else see the line between Art Lean and Johnny Cage in one of these vids:

Art: "Any last minute tips coach?"

Cage: "Yeah, get your mom to write you a note, and call in sick"

Man that was horrible, I'm glad they left it on the cutting room floor.
Wonder what else got cut? They should've released a new MK1 DVD (for the 10 year anniversary) with footage like that in it.

Good stuff ]{.

See how they put all the emphasis and praise on the fluff in that video clip? Obviously after MKT they decided to put the focus on the graphics, backgrounds etc. I suppose 'cus by 1997 they were outta their depth in terms of the complexities of a fighting game, and the superflous stuff was all they could change.

That and also the superfluous stuff could be added with much less testing. Add a cool background and as long it looks cool and doesn't crash the game you're good to go. If you want to develop a new aspect of gameplay or stick in a new move, you need to test that a whole lot with different game testers that are good at playing the game or else it will end up broken as hell.
