Two more months. Just two more months. That's what I have to keep telling myself while agonizing over the release of Mortal Kombat X. As someone who logged nearly 7,000 matches into the last Mortal Kombat, and still plays Injustice from time to time, any new info is good news, and NetherRealm has recently dropped a lot of details on the game's online modes. Let's dig in.

You know, developers are always looking for pre-order bonuses and special edition swag to get us to buy-in early. They'll hold popular character hostage for a pre-order or contract out an art design house to build a spe...

If the top-tier collector's edition is a bit of a brutal finisher move to your wallet, Mortal Kombat X's recommended PC specs are more akin to a Friendship. Well, that is, compared to the outlandish requirements by the bulk o...

"Imagine playing as the ominous LEGO T. rex, roaming the grounds of Isla Nublar, smashing LEGO bricks and battling with other dinosaurs -- this game is bound to bring out the kid in all of us," says TT Games managing direc...

Much like the way the game will feature a large selection of fighters to pick from, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment is giving players a wide array of choices when it comes to nabbing a special edition of Mortal Kombat...

Hey, this is Hot Take! It's another new Destructoid video series! New videogames come out all the time, and we want to show you what it's like to play them; think mini-Let's Plays. Our inaugural episode is Dying Li...

[Update: Techland says it did not intend to create "obstacles" for modders. "With the recent patch (1.2.1) on Steam we blocked cheating to make sure the game's PvP system (Be The Zombie) would not be abused. This, however, ha...

This latest round of LEGO games will do wonders for Brett's Gamerscore. Several titles are releasing in 2015, including LEGO Jurassic World, which hits in June and spans all four films, and LEGO Marvel's Avengers, which is ou...

Yeah, like Reptile wasn't going to make the cut.  NetherRealm unveiled the lizard-like ninja in a trailer today, showcasing his scaly new look and classic moves on poor Kung Lao. Gotta admit, always been a big fan of that tongue and acid spit. Mortal Kombat X launches April 14 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. Mortal Kombat X: Reptile Revealed [IGN]

Drip feeding out character reveals is a fine fighting game tradition. But this morning, NetherRealm cranked up the dial and mainlined a medically unsafe dose straight to the heart of Mortal Kombat X junkies. A trailer t...

I'm not sure what Scorpion plans on doing here. He's in what we'd call a "no win situation." Kung Lao's fist is poised to usher Scorpion into a world of pain, and he's opted to imaginary limbo instead of fighting back. Maybe ...

Everyone's favorite Odd Job-inspired warrior will be returning to the bloody fray in Mortal Kombat X. Kung Lao's return was confirmed in the most recent issue of GamesMaster Magazine. And, as always, cutting-edge fashion will be very important to him. (I'll show myself out.)

Don’t let the name fool you -- this is by no means a Batman game. The Dark Knight may grace the box, but underneath its bat-enameled shell lies a Justice League game at heart. A menagerie of DC heroes and villains combi...

Monolith released Lord of the Hunt today, the first add-on pack for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. Yeah, the $10 DLC has a lot of the stuff you'd expect: new nemeses, new challenges, and even some guy named Torvin the ...

The first Ace Chemicals Infiltration video for Batman: Arkham Knight rekindled my excitement and, looking over your comments, I was far from alone in that regard. But this? Come on now. It's almost entirely scripted footage ...

After news of the delay back in September, the folks at WB Games and Rocksteady have kept all things Batman: Arkham Knight close to the vest. Thankfully, they figured we could use another appetizer after their showing at E3, ...

Rocksteady's conclusion to the Arkham trilogy will happen a bit later than everyone expected, and as such, there's still more to learn about the game. That's no big surprise; we're still discovering easter eggs in Arkha...

I completely forgot Monolith was working on last-generation ports of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor. The studio delayed the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game to ... today. It's available for a full $59.99...

Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham is available now, for nearly every console imaginable, real and otherwise. It's probably available for the Imagination Station 3000, but supplies are limited. The launch trailer above doesn't rea...

Sometimes words do a disservice to a post. Sometimes, the best thing to do is to just let a video speak for itself. Nothing I could write would do justice to these overtly gory Mortal Kombat X Fatalities, anyway -- especially Scorpion's. This Is Just the First Part of Scorpion's Mortal Kombat X Fatality [Kotaku]

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor was reminiscent of a summer blockbuster, keeping me on seat's edge throughout, only to be virtually forgotten upon seeing the credits roll. But say you're still under its spell, well, perhaps Wa...

Techland has gone ahead and cancelled the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of its free-running, first-person zombie game Dying Light. It will still be available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One early next year. "After thorough internal tes...

Monolith has released a free Power of Shadow DLC pack for Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor on Steam, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. Most notably, it includes an alternate costume for Talion that resembles the Black Hand of Sauron...

Conan O'Brien, the famed late-night talk show host and self-professed clueless gamer, will be reversing roles of sorts for his part in LEGO Batman 3. Instead of being confounded by videogames, he's going to be playing himsel...

Techland's Dying Light is just the latest game to include asymmetric multiplayer into its fold. Seems like everyone's doing it these days; it's been all the rage since Left 4 Dead did it all those years ago. B...

The fiendish sorcerer Quan Chi returns in Mortal Kombat X. While he's said to play a major part in the story -- something I'm eager to hear more about, coming off of the last game -- today we're just shown a standard fight. ...

[Note: I am currently in process of rendering and uploading all of the videos to the playlist. If you run out and want more, be sure to check back soon.] Max and I decided it would be a good idea to shoot a playthrough of th...

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor's doing mostly fine from the reviews that came out last week, but that doesn't mean that you will like it. How can you like a game if you haven't played it yet? You can't, plain and simple...

Like Max, I didn't know what to make of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor but taking a guarded approach has paid off -- the reviews are in and they're overwhelmingly positive. Nice surprise! Still not sure I'll rush out to grab the game at launch on Tuesday -- I've got my hands full, as I'm sure many of you will shortly -- but it's much higher on my to-play list after this week.

Developing a licensed game can be extremely difficult. Not only does Monolith Productions have the Lord of the Rings film series to honor with Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, but the developer also has to work in ma...

Like a Balrog vanquished to the depths from whence it came, Warner Bros. took a good look at the legacy console adaptions of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor and declared "You shall not pass!" At least, not for a few more ...

While we'll have plenty to keep us busy later this year, particularly next month, a bunch of the games that are most testing my patience aren't releasing until 2015. Batman: Arkham Knight is one of them. Today, Warner Bros. a...

[Writers Note: The original story was amended because of number of factual inaccuracies. My sincerest apologies to anyone who was confused by the original article.] It won't be long now until Middle-earth: Shadow of Mord...

I got to play Mortal Kombat X for a half hour during PAX Prime, and that made me happier than a pig in whatever pigs love to be in. After 5,000 matches played online between Mortal Kombat and Injustice: Gods Among Us, my anti...

So I still need to actually play Vanquish in full, but that rocket knee slide? Good stuff. Dying Light's slide is not so cool, but with enough forward momentum, you could get a decent slide going.  I am only still ...

Smack dab in the middle of the release season for the year's biggest games comes the largest Lego title to date. Warner Bros. sent along word today that LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will release on November 11&...

GameStop is celebrating Batman's 75th year with several events at GameStop Expo 2014. Players can get hands-on early access to LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham by TT Games, for one, and Arkham Knight fans will be able to see and ...

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has gotten a lot of people excited because of its seemingly great combat and interesting reputation system but is it me, or does it just look like a generic dark fantasy game? I'll be honest, m...

As I wrote about at E3, there's a lot that you can do in Techland's Dying Light. First and foremost, you can run, jump, and grapple your way across terrain at a breakneck speed. You can take a break from traversal and use yo...

You might've thought that Orcs were all fleshy and a good ol'-fashioned sword through the squishy parts would be enough to take care of them. False. Some might fall to the blade, but you'll need something decidedly more cere...
