There is a lot to unpack from this Mortal Kombat X story trailer

Ostensibly this story trailer for Mortal Kombat X is supposed to set the stage for the latest generation of Earthrealm warriors' struggle against the forces of Outworld, but we all know what the real hype is about -- charact...

Brutalities revealed for Mortal Kombat X

Brutalities are back in Mortal Kombat X, and there will be "well over 100" according to series creator Ed Boon, a fact that makes me wonder just how many characters the game will have. Originally, brutalities were long ...

Killer Instinct is getting a multi-faced golem and a 'Ghost Girl'

From a cosmetic perspective, I'm digging this new round of Killer Instinct characters. While the trailer is focused on next week's Aganos, a golem who looks more like a boss than a combatant, there's also a tease at the end for a character everyone seems to be calling "Ghost Girl." I hope that name sticks. Videogames can and should be weird like that sometimes.

Review: Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late
by Kyle MacGregor

The competition is fierce, and I'm not just talking about the folks delivering beat downs online. With so many fighting games on the market nowadays, fans of the genre are spoiled for choice. Studios are vying for mindshare, just as we're battling in the arena. Want people to take notice? Well then, you had better bring your 'A' game. And make sure to come out swinging.

That's exactly what Melty Blood studio French Bread has done with Under Night In-Birth Exe:Late, the latest 2D fighter to throw its hat into the ring. It might look like just another high-flying "anime" fighter at first glance, but looks can be deceiving. Under Night In-Birth is its own beast, one absolutely deserving of your time and attention.

Flex those muscles, Machamp

This is vaguely the same footage of Pokkén Tournament we've seen over the past couple weeks, but it's a direct capture of the game, so what the hell. Good recap of the current roster, though do note that the voice over and text are in Japanese. Long way to go before this'll get localized. What's going on with Pikachu (starting at 1:25)? That expression is Kirby-in-the-USA angry.

I bet you'd like some Predator in your Mortal Kombat X

If you see a tell-tale shimmer in Mortal Kombat X come June, you should be concerned. It only means that the perfect hunting specimen is after you, and there's a good chance that death is mere seconds away -- even for th...

Dragon Ball Z: Butōden announced for the 3DS, developed by Arc System Works

Most Dragon Ball fanatics that were alive during the retro era have probably played, or at least heard of the Butōden series. Making its debut in 1993 on the SNES in Japan, the 2D fighter was something else, al...
