This shirt is why my thumbs hurt when I type for too long. Curse the hours I spent wasting my youth in the arcade.

All right, I'll bite: I don't think this is the Konami Code, so what is it?

I don't know woot. What if I run into a chronic gamer and they start wildly jabbing my chest in an attempt to play?

I could end up with bruises on my chest, and don't even get me started on how this might be used against the ladies...

sub-zero's fatality, one of the easiest to pull of in the original MK. Liu Kang's was also pretty simple, just a 360 on the pad.

I dig the reference, but fear that the majority of the population will just stare at me for a long time before the inevitable "what is that" question comes.

Man this shirt takes me back. Sometimes I think my generation were the last to experience the arcade craze, right around the time laser tag showed up. I really wish I had those quarters now so I could build a new wing on my house.

I'm sad. I'd love the shirt if it didn't say start under the button. I like the way the images are substitutes for words, but putting the word defeats the purpose.

Isn't that the best part of shirts like this? What better way to make yourself feel superior to others.

Oh man, it's all coming back to me. The second through forth player buttons on the arcade machines had multiple little "hooray!" guys on them.

And they always reminded you that winners, despite popular belief, do not do drugs.

Most of the W00t shirts these past two weeks have been pretty rockin', very nicely done.

It bugs me that the start button icon has the guy with his arms up instead of down. The shirt loses a significant amount of retro arcade cred in my opinion due to that. Just google Mortal Kombat Control Panel or arcade start button, or go to the Mortal Kombat entry on KLOV.com (Killer List Of Videogames), and you'll be hard pressed to find any start button for any MK game or any major (fighting) arcade game for that matter with hands up iconography on a Start button.

That input is also commonly known as the "DP" (short for dragon punch). Adds new meaning to the shirt.

edit: whoops, misread the input.

Yeah, I had the same problem with the shirt. Oh well, just won't be a buy for me.

No, that would be forward down down-forward, this is forward down forward.

According to that Mortal Kombat wiki website, Sub Zero's fatality is:

Spine Rip: Forward, Down, Forward, High Punch. (Close)

The t-shirt shows it as : Forward, Down, Forward PLUS Button (<--infers simultaneous button press of Forward and an attack button).

...so if you're a retro arcade gamer who wants to show off Sub Zero's finishing move..., it's the wrong move list being shown.

It would be like wearing a shirt with the Konami Code printed incorrectly.

....or is this the ultimate prank like telling someone to press A+B+C+Start on the Sega Saturn version of Tomb Raider to enable nude mode?

[edit: for current gen console gamers, I should have rephrased the last sentence to "....or is this the ultimate prank like telling someone to press and hold down R1, R2, L1, L2, Start and Select simultaneously on any PlayStation 3 Squaresoft Final Fantasy or KOEI game to unlock all DLC?"]

Doesn't it bother anyone that the apostrophe is facing the wrong way?

Nerds wear black - colors are scary, and someone who is well-versed in video games doesn't typically want to stand out with a
RED SHIRT.

Just sayin'

I would have gotten one if we could choose color (and I miss the old brand too) of fabric. I've seen too many original episodes to beam down in one of these.

Arrgggghh ... that's a single opening quote before "em" and not an apostrophe. (Sorry, compulsive editor)

My first thoughts on seeing the design:

"I don't a challenger appears fights, I hadouken them."

(Upon closer inspection I noticed the different controller motion, but then I also noticed the weird "hands-up" pose on the guy, as mentioned above.)

Great design, but it'll go over the heads of anyone born after 1990. This shirt makes me feel old because I get it...

Yeah, so there's that...

Congrats on the amazing shirt. Also congrats on living in Toledo... that is not easy to do. I should know I have been here for 12 years now.

I had a dedicated 25" MK1 arcade machine back in the day. I had MK1, MK2, and Killer Instinct PCBs in there that I could swap in about a minute. *sniff* I loved that game.

Ever since I saw an article (http://www.visualeditors.com/apple/2009/04/if-youre-a-copy-editor-dont-read-this/) about the Orioles messing up their apostrophe thanks to Word smartquotes, I see it everywhere. But I thought, at least at Woot, I'd be okay. Until now. Is nowhere safe anymore??

Can you someone tell me when shirts went up to $12 on release day? I didn't see anything in the blog or elsewhere to announce a price increase. Is this a one time or is this inflation in woot nation?

This happened months ago.
