Toasty!

Toasty! That immortal phrase . . . If you played the original game then you’ll definitely remember it! This week, SciFiPulse ran a feature, Mortal Kombat Reboot: Secrets of Success Assessed. It was great to see a return of the game’s character’s onto the big screen. Unfortunately, the all important phrase didn’t make it in. Mortal Kombat’s creators tell you all about it, here, which is cool.

 

Toasty!

Round I

 

Fatalities

so hard to do

and special moves

difficult too

But despite that

you laughed with glee,

those special times

you heard “toasty” . . .

 

Round II

 

Brutal battles,

by magic ways

and Sub-Zero’s

ice-cold rays

Basic graphics —

gory glory,

then out he popped

to say “toasty” . . .

 

Final Round

 

You never knew

when you would hear

that funny phrase,

high-pitched, but clear

A fun side-show

made legendary,

Mortal Kombat’s

best bit – “toasty!”

So, now you know all about where it came from you can enjoy it even more! Why not get hold of a copy of the game (available on phones, now!) and try and do a few fatalities! Hopefully, that all important feature will still be there. If not, then at least this week’s poem will offer a sense of nostalgia for those of you who grew up playing Mortal Kombat! Take care readers and see you next week!
