preGame 51: Interview with Ed Boon; Outland demo

On today's preGame we'll interview the co-creator of Mortal Kombat, Ed Boon. Then we'll dish out some of the week's gaming news followed up by a demo of the XBLA game Outland.


On today's preGame we'll interview Mr. Mortal Kombat himself, the co-creator of the entire franchise, Ed Boon. It's been a few weeks since the latest iteration of Mortal Kombat hit store shelves, and we'll ask Mr. Boon all about the game as well as the series' history.

But first we'll run down the hottest gaming news of the week including word that a new Alan Wake game will be hitting the Xbox 360, hopefully this year.

We'll also discuss what Microsoft buying Skype means for Xbox 360 owners and then run through a new site that catalogs game time completion statistics.

Finally, Jeff will play through a demo of the Xbox Live Arcade game Outland. This gorgeous 2D platformer reminds us of the good old days of Metroid and Castlevania, but adds in some next-generation bells and whistles.
