Finish him!

You ever wonder how the sounds are made in your favorite video games?  For example, in a game like Mortal Kombat, you have two fighters face off against each other in....Mortal Kombat.  You can't exactly recreate in the real world two fantasy fighters fighting to the death and record those sound effects.  So how do they get the sound of a fist punching a face, or as gruesome as it sounds, rip out an opponents spinal cord?  Vice has a great piece on how the sounds of video games are made.  Super cool.

Also if you are interested, Mortal Kombat 11 just dropped some new characters into their game.
