First Mortal Kombat: Deception Bios

by Gambid on Jul 20, 2004 :: 5

IGN has updated with a new Mortal Kombat: Deception article, entitled The Kombatants of MK Deception, that includes bios of three of the returning characters in the game:

And so, your friends here at IGN have teamed up with Midway to bring you an ongoing profile series dedicated to the cast of what can only be described as the biggest Mortal Kombat title yet. Officially designatedThe Kombatants of MK: Deception, our irregular collection of profiles will not only tell you what fighters you can expect to see in the next iteration of Midway's competitive slugger, but also, the history of that character and how they came to be in the first place.
In this week's installment, we take a closer look at combatants Mileena, Raiden, and Sindel. Simply click on the picture of each character to the right of their profile to download their video, or access them from the media page below.

Origin: Outworld
First Appearance: Mortal Kombat II (1993)
Alignment: Evil
Allies: Baraka, Shang Tsung
Foes: Kitana

Created by the sorcerer Shang Tsung, Mileena has at last fulfilled her destiny as Kitana's successor by posing as the former princess. She misleads Kitana's military forces in an attempt to give the Dragon King the time he needs to complete his plans. Only Baraka knows the truth behind her deception.

Origin: The Heavens
First Appearance: Mortal Kombat (1992)
Alignment: Good
Allies: Liu Kang, Kung Lao
Foes: Quan Chi, Shang Tsung, Dragon King, Shinnok

As a last resort against the Dragon King's advance, Raiden sacrificed himself by releasing his godlike essence; thereby creating an intense ethereal blast. The Dragon King was unaffected and continues to threaten the realms.

Origin: Edenia
First Appearance: Mortal Kombat 3 (1995)
Alignment: Good
Allies: Kitana, Jade
Foes: Shao Kahn, Tanya

A new threat has put Queen Sindel's realm of Edenia in peril. With the aid of her faithful ally Jade, she will travel to Outworld to defeat the Dragon King and free her daughter Kitana from his control.

As soon as we get more information we will post it here, so stay close to Mortal Kombat Secrets and you will not miss a thing.

Redstone increases stake in Midway

by Gambid on Jul 17, 2004 :: 0

Today GameSpot published the following news article:

The Viacom CEO's constant acquisition of shares has now pushed his ownership to just over 80 percent of the publisher.

The past week saw Sumner Redstone move closer to taking over Midway Games. The Viacom chairman and CEO made at least a dozen trades over the past six weeks, which increased his stake in the company to slightly over 80 percent. His most recent transaction was a purchase of 44,000 shares yesterday, which gave Redstone 55.2 million shares--80.9 percent of Midway's stock.

The significance of Redstone acquiring more than 80 percent of the company’s stock is put in perspective by Wedbush Morgan senior analyst Michael Pachter. “A shareholder with 80 percent or more ownership can essentially ‘freeze out’ minority shareholders," he said. “‘Freezing out’ means essentially that the 80 percent owner doesn't need to submit most actions to a shareholder vote. He can't sell the company without ensuring that the minority receives the same thing he gets, but other than that, he can do what he pleases.”

Redstone's recent moves come just over one month after he hired financial counsel to assess the possibilities of taking Midway Games private. The Viacom CEO and chairman is also stacking Midway's board in his favor, appointing his own daughter, Shari, as vice chairman of the board and former VU Games chairman Kenneth Cron as CEO. Both were elected to the board on June 10, 2004.

With Redstone's takeover of Midway now all but imminent, the question is, "What will he do with it?" The most prevalent theory sees Redstone acquiring sufficient Midway stock to take the company private and then selling the company to Viacom. Such a scenario would give the media a respected game-industry organization and would let it leverage its many brands--including MTV and Nickelodeon--without going through a third-party publisher.
