  1. Doug, please lower the tone of the background music – it is too distracting.
    THe same problem was present in some of your earlier Confessions/Ask That Guy videos.

  2. Been a while since we’ve seen a VGC!

    I know the new NC’s are much more time consuming, but I’d still love to see these on a regular basis.

  3. I’ll never get the hate for MK vs DC, was a fantastic groundbreaking game no, but it was still fun and a as huge fan of both series it was an interesting crossover, plus it was all worth it to see Joker drop to his knees and give a good echoing scream of Kahn!!!

    • That Joker scene was one of the most forced jokes I’ve ever seen, not even a chuckle. What’s actually fujny is the incredibly stillted and awkward animations, especially in scenes where a character is shown flying completely motionless as if they were set to move from point a to b, with no sound or animation, comedy gold. With all that said, I still agree that it gets too much hate, as it still can be some fun.

    I actually don’t blame sub-zero for decapitating that kids head. If I was one of those mortal kombat characters I definitely would do a koma koma ha on him. This video was very classy and the main character Dominic is actually a very chill guy(that’s not a pun commentors). But tell Dominic to tell sub-zero that his mom died by melting i n the sun. Sure hope sub’s doesn’t decapite my head off me.

  5. Judging by the sick things you describe, I’m guessing this was the elder Sub-Zero.

  6. It’s great to see this series back.

  7. Three Degrees of Bacon

    I love this series! So glad to see another episode! (First)

  8. An ice cream man playing the mortal kombat theme would be amazing.

    • We had one around here that did that a few years ago. I think some parents may have complained, though, since I haven’t heard him play it in four or five years now.

  9. It’s great to see one of these again! Gotta admit I got a few laughs out of this one, especially the mental image of Sub-zero in an ice cream truck playing the Mortal Kombat theme…

  10. to be fair, this would be a great way of ending the video game confessions series. Just as long as there is a short video of health inspectors shutting the pixel palace down. Good stuff.

  11. Huh… I feel like old Subby would have some luck as an ice-sculptor, I’m sure there’s a strong niche market providing those for events and the like.

  12. A new Video Game Confessions, I was wondering when you were going to make another one these, they are my favorite.

  13. Was this on one of the DVDs? I think I remember it…

  14. Ooh, haven’t seen one of these in a while. Love these. I guessed that someone was going to get decaptitated in this.

  15. Oh I thought these had died! So glad to see another!
