26 Apr: ‘Mortal Tombat’ Can’t Be Beat

Meet Tom Oswald. He’s a mild-manned father of two and hard-working Best Buy employee in San Antonio. But put him in front of a vintage Mortal Kombat arcade game and his heart starts pumping and he becomes “Mortal Tombat” — the guy who never loses.

“About four years ago, I was at a video game convention and started playing the Mortal Kombat II game they had there,” Tom said. “The guy who owned it said, ‘No one can beat me.’ I beat him 10 times in a row and went the rest of that weekend without losing.”
