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...

Off-screen Pokkén Tournament footage has Gardevoir-on-Gardevoir action

As a man of simple tastes, my big takeaway from Pokkén Tournament's location test in Japanese arcades was Pikachu wearing shorts, but, I get it: game mechanics are important too. This off-screen video from seadraDS ha...

Mortal Kombat X introduces online factions and brings back the Challenge Tower photo
Mortal Kombat X introduces online factions and brings back the Challenge Tower
by Abel Girmay

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.
