Video Gaming and Costumes
With Grand Theft Auto 4 as the hottest game on the market right now, video games — no matter what your favorite choice of console may be — are bigger and gaining more media attention than ever._Ç¬ Appealing not just to kids, but perhaps especially adults, video games are one of the leading recreational activities in the world.
With their own network, G4 TV and several major conventions, this unique form of media and fandom has captured the attentions and joysticks of millions.Ç¬ While attending some of these conventions, many fans sport elaborate costumes of their favorite game characters.Ç¬_Ç¬ One of the most elaborate of these costumes would be the collector’s edition of the Xbox franchise Halo‘s main character, Master Chief, complete with a full suit of futuristic armor and a two-piece helmet and mask.
While Halo is still undoubtedly hot, the long-running Mortal Kombat franchise with its myriad of ninjas, monsters, and mystics is due for another round hitting the shelves in December of this year, just in time for the holiday rush.Ç¬ This time, Mortal Kombat’s cast of characters do battle with notable legends of the DC comic book universe.Ç¬

Hopefully some more Mortal Kombat costumes will hit the market in anticipation for this highly coveted release, making some serious MK die-hards very happy in time to hit the conventions.Ç¬ Nevertheless, there are plenty of DC universe comic costumes, particularly several versions ofÇ¬ Batman, and the other members of DC’s “Big Three,” Superman and Wonder Woman.
