GameCuber's left out in the cold for the past few months will now be able to get Mortal Kombat: Deception. Since the game doesn't have any online fighting, some new additions are put in to make up for the missing component and the long wait. Added to this version that's not featured in the Xbox and PS2 are Goro and Shao Kahn as playable characters. Now if they would update the Xbox version via an XBL download, I'd be very happy.
