Our Favorite E3 Moments – Mortal Kombat 3 Debuts at E3 1995

We often hear complaints from angry gamers and journos about the current state of E3. They say that the show’s not what it used to be. It’s getting there. E3 2010 was definitely a few steps up from what 2008 and 2007 were in presentation: lights, colors booth babes with swords.

Still, if you ask the OBG staff what they think of E3, we will tell you that we don’t mind the show the way it is right now. Then again, we had no problem with E3 2008, because games didn’t get lost in the crowd. One thing we can sure as hell tell you is that it’s a relief to know that E3 isn’t the same event it was in 1995.

This presentation of Mortal Kombat 3 at E3 1995 (actually the first E3 ever) is so bad it’s good. Next time you want to whine about how E3 isn’t what it used to be, force yourself to watch this video:

Original Goro Rig From First Mortal Kombat

Those of us who gamed in 1992 remember Mortal Kombat. Goro was this huge, four-armed douchebag.

Remember that the credits talked about stop motion animation for Goro while all the others were actors?

Well Ed Boon has revealed the little claymation figurine used to animate Goro:
