TYM Podcast Episode 5 has hit and during this episode both @Gerchap and @General M2Dave join me to discuss the 2005 era of online competitive Mortal Kombat. What makes this era so special is the fact that this was the first game that took us online against others, so this was a brand new world for us. Many of us today, including Gerchap, m2dave and myself originally met each other during this era.

Here we are 14 years later, reminiscing the "good old days" of trash talk, clan wars and the many players that represented it.

Wow, I had almost forgotten MKD roster screen (Armor Subbie is love). The first MK game that I spent tons of hours on.

It's amazing how they put every forgettable character of MKD on the last row, including the version of a klassic that everyone tries to forget.

This was a great video! Again, thanks for the shutouts! You guys nailed it with all those to players for each character across both platforms. I'm honored to have been mentioned in the video. We had so much fun with MKD. M2Dave is right. There was so much shit taking back in the day lol! But that drove us to play our best to back up our claims of being as good as we were.

You were correct about me playing a pocket Kira in MKD. She was low tier, but she did insane damage and had some of the best resets and 50/50's in the game. Her second stance had standing 2 which was a pop up which could then lead to a 40% stance change combo or a reset with the kiss followed by U+1 in weapon stance. Her problem was her limited tools and horrible recovery on said tools. I had a lot of success with her, but for me, Mileena was where it was at.

One thing I forgot to mention and this can be saved for a later episode, but players like @Konqrr specifically picked those characters like Kira BECAUSE they were lower tier... and he was damn good with them.

I popped MKD into my 360 (back compatible) this morning after watching the podcast. All the Mileena shenanigans came flowing back to me. Surprisingly, the visuals hold up pretty well. I forgot how satisfying it was to send someone into the death traps lol!

I really wish we could still play this game online.

Definitely a great time last night, we only covered 2005 and part of 2006. The people I didn’t mention was because we haven’t covered the entire ERA. We pretty much started from the very beginning of the online scene Still a lot to talk about and a lot of names to be mentioned
MK 3D era was the beginning of something great.
More to come fellas

@STORMS & @General M2Dave the tag KF Gaara i mentioned for best Kobra was also “Kapow Chicken” that was his other tag I remembered after we finished the call lol. Probably other OGs remember this guy

Chap, thanks again for joining the call last night. You, @General M2Dave and myself (and hopefully @DanCock ) need to start the Pt 2 here soon.

Hell, @Konqrr uploading these MKD videos makes me want to resurrect "Darkness Marches". I'm honored that he had a long set between Synik and I. I didn't expect any of my footage to be captured from back then.
 

Konqrr

Kital... Kabana... whatever, same thing.
You know we can still play this online right? THTB and I did it 4 years ago with MKA and I see people streaming it on facebook every now and then.



The online is still just as bad as it ever was haha.

So you’re telling me MKD is playable online? I’m picking up a copy tomorrow because I don’t even know if I still have my old old copy

I'm pretty sure it is PS2 only.

MKA is just changing your DNS on your online profile. I think with MKD, you need a patched ISO file and the ability to play burned discs or off usb/hdd using a loader like McBoot.

@mastermalone gonna dust my copy off tomorrow after work! I did forget about the memory card thing though.... LMAO... shit.
Yeah, tell me about it! Today, I spent like 3 hours in the Konquest mode to start earning the coins to unlock the stages and characters. It is such a fun mode but the acting is Resident Evil one levels of terrible. Hahahaha!

I've ordered a McBoot and have ripped my copy of MKD and am testing patches to unlock everything (except Shujinko special moves sadly...) So far so good. All characters, stages, and costumes unlocked immediately.

I'm definitely trying this today.

Can you imagine the hype if we can play this online again?

Shit.. I gotta unlock NS again.

Tired? Nah, I was excited the whole time.

But yes, as you watch it there is a TKO Easter egg when @General M2Dave starts to talk about TKO and how it started.
Gotcha, it's probably just the tone of your voice. I mean I get the whole "you sound scary/creepy" comments a lot lol but I'm quite a friendly guy once you get to know me. Nice one though! Hey if you'd like I'd chat with you guys sometime, I actually met/hung out with Gerchap wayyy back, I met him, pig, Wu, Stretchshrimp. Stretch and Wu seemed to disappeared completely.

Maybe you guys can do something where you have guest appearances weekly, different players from all areas tourneys, online, lore fans, etc, etc

Ha, I remember DJ Dreddy. He was always telling me "dude you're a great player, you should just let out without the honor mentality and join the darkside!" lol he was a big Baraka player I think. B N R was a fantastic player, his N/S was insane from what I remember, I learned a few tips from him improving my own N/S at the time. It's funny though the way you PS guys felt about Xbox controllers, I felt about PS ones due to the spaces between the D pad, the controller itself felt comfortable but the damn spaces man I swear to this day I just can't get out my buffs properly, imputs etc to each his own I guess eh? haha

B N R since you guys mentioned him a bit, he did beat me consistently though we had lots of close ones within a few matches from each other. I would actually say Alexie beat me worse than B N R did, though over time I've beaten Alexie quite a few times, the first time he destroyed me. Dairou I remember, on Xbox I never played anyone the way I used him( I never played M2Dave so I couldn't say what the outcome would have been) but I did notice he utilized him up close more than me, I was more about the zoning, keeping people away with him. My main character was Ermac overall, he was my boy in Deception especially.

Wow, nice you found the pic. I think I have it on my photobucket or older computer some where, it looks like everyone's face is vibrating haha. I remember that place, it closed down about 6 years ago or so. Now we have a Dave & Busters lol it's ok.

Wu was the very first forum member I met in person because I met with him in Connecticut then we drove to NYC to meet with you @MKF30, stretch and Pig.
