How dumb will Heihachi's hair look running on Unreal 4?

For whatever reason, AOL accidentally let the cat out of the bag about Tekken 7, which is going to be running on Unreal Engine 4, and now we have a big ol' trailer for the game. Meanwhile, in a different game about guys with dumb hair hitting each other, Raiden has been revealed for Mortal Kombat X, and he seems to have a very loose understanding of what thunder can and can't block out.

I made someone's nuts explode in Mortal Kombat X

I've always felt like the videogame industry doesn't feel right without a Mortal Kombat. So many games are always striving to be these serious affairs, and it takes something like Mortal Kombat to remind people that oh right,...

Video: Mortal Kombat X is vile in all the right ways

Mortal Kombat 9 was a damn good fighting game, and a damn good game in general. According to Max and Bill, next year's Mortal Kombat X is shaping up to be more of that. Building on the foundation of MK9 and Injustice: Gods ...

What the Mortal Kombat X trailer tells us and hints at photo
What the Mortal Kombat X trailer tells us and hints at
by Patrick Hancock

Our first glimpse of Mortal Kombat X (MKX) came today in the form of a presumably CG teaser trailer. Some people don't think that the trailer served much of a purpose, since it didn't explicitly state what we can expect in the upcoming installment of the series.

Well, I do believe that some people said the same thing about the original Street Fighter IV trailer, which was subsequently dissected and found to reveal quite a bit about the game. Don't get me wrong, I hate modern-day trailers just as much as most. There have been times where I can't distinguish one trailer from another, or times where I don't know what game is being advertised until the very end, let alone what that game plays like. 

If I've learned anything about videogames, it's that good developers never do anything on accident. This MKX trailer includes certain aspects which I don't think are just there to look pretty.

Ed Boon reveals Mortal Kombat X

[Update: Check out the official trailer above! Also, the platforms listed below are confirmed.]

After weeks of teasing, Ed Boon took to Twitter today to reveal Mortal Kombat X, the next chapter of the Mortal Kombat series.

Not a whole lot is known about the game right now other than the fact that it exists, and that it will hit the PS3, PS4, PC, Xbox 360, and Xbox One platforms according to various rumored retail listings. We can likely expect some news soon though, leading up to and including E3!

Mortal Kombat X will drop in 2015.
