Let us babeality, if you will, back to a time when the internets were hardly born and the original NES was king, a simpler time when 16-bit graphics came along and blew our fucking mind. For anyone who experienced that revolution, Mortal Kombat was a game you could never forget, at least partially because the endless repetitive movements of the characters just kind of got burned into your mind, which is why today -- also because it's Wednesday, the day that we bring you the best of our weird internets world in a random compendium of images loosely related to whatever topic we happen to come up with -- we put that incessant activity to good use.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
