Video Blips: Mortal Kombat, Shenmue’s “real” conclusion, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and more

Who do you think will be the first to complete Mortal Kombat's "Challenge Tower": a hardcore MK fan or a bored masochist?  

Video Blips:

• Mortal Kombat's "Challenge Tower" consists of 300 twisted and wacky missions for players to test their abilities. I found the level where you toss a live grenade into a burning trash can in a subway tunnel to be particularly disturbing. Does anyone realize how reckless that is?

function getVideo() {
var so = new SWFObject(“”, “mplayer”, “607″, “341″, “8″, “#000000″);
so.addParam(“swliveconnect”, “true”);
so.addParam(“allowscriptaccess”, “always”);
so.addParam(“allowfullscreen”, “true”);
so.addVariable(“pid”, “bitm001″);
so.addVariable(“siteId”, “435″);
so.addVariable(“videoId”, “259667″);
so.addVariable(“autostart”, “false”);
so.addVariable(“file”, “”);
so.addVariable(“pageUrl”, document.location);



Continue after the break for the comedic ending to Shenmue (from series creator Yu Suzuki), a preview of the Bounty Hunter class in Star Wars: The Old Republic, and a trailer for Hamilton's Great Adventure.


• Comedy group Mega64 has an exclusive video with legendary game designer Yu Suzuki on how the Shenmue series is suppose to end. For those of you worried about spoilers, trust me: You're OK to watch this. [Mega64]

• Just because you pick the Bounty Hunter class in Star Wars: The Old Republic doesn't mean you're automatically a badass like Boba Fett. In fact, I don't even think you have it in you to beat out Dog the Bounty Hunter. [GameTrailers]

• What's so cool about Hamilton's Great Adventure? Well, the hero rocks an Indiana Jones-style hat. That's a decent start…. [GameTrailers]
