I was re-reading the first 2 posts in this thread and I wounder

How did people in the Arcades even know about the fatalities in the first place and how to do them?


I mean was it pure chance? there was no google or internet search engines at that time back in 1992. Can someone tell me how exactly did people know about the fatalities in the first place, because in the arcades I would think that the MK masters of the time must have learned about how to do them from somewhere.

There was magazines back then. but is exactly how did they do the fatalities? I wounder :-\

the Internet AltaVista was officially launched in 1995.

google in which came out in 1998

(PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY)
Life on earth is only temporary and If you believe in God and do good in life. You can continue to live with any possessions  you desire, in the afterlife, as long as you do good and don't do evil in real life.

Most magazines usually had a tricks/cheat codes section that'd they show off for a game that had been out on the market for a few months as seen here:
