We're half way through 2015 already
We’re now half-way through 2015. As time marches ever onward, quicker and quicker towards the screaming oblivion that is our graves, we shall hear that bell will soon ring and we will be taken into the void by the reape...
Watch his gameplay trailer now
If you sprang for the expensive Kombat Pack Season Pass, you'll be able to pick up Tremor in Mortal Kombat X tomorrow. If not, he'll be available to the public piecemeal on July 28. As expected he's an earth-based fight...
Street Fighter, Marvel, Melee, and more
The final day of Evolution 2015 has concluded, and we are left with a slew of new champions.
There were upsets and heart-breakers, but most importantly hundreds of hours of the highest-level fighting games. Games featured today were Ultra Street Fighter IV, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Mortal Kombat X, and Guilty Gear: Xrd -SIGN-.
Assuming it's funded on Kickstarter
"The one consistent theme throughout all of them was that they loved to party."
With that, I'm down to watch Insert Coin, a documentary about Midway (Smash TV, NBA Jam, Robotron 2084) during its prime. Producer Josh Tsui, the...
It's pretty easy
One of the coolest parts of Mortal Kombat X is how each character has three variations, which drastically change up how they react and adds movesets to your core abilities. However, community member NightmareSteam has f...
Mortal Kombat's official community landing page has unveiled a new video series, which aims to explain how the fighters get so fit. This is probably one of the dumbest things I've seen all year, but it has a "so bad it's good" vibe that made me chuckle a few times.
Today marked the end of Season 1 of the ESL MKX Pro League with cR Sonic Fox taking the belt and a massive $60k grand prize purse after a dominant performance as Kitana in the finals. After hearing so much about how Tany...
One of many things in the Predator Patch
Hearkening back to a time when you had to figure out special moves on your own in the glow of your local arcade, the latest Mortal Kombat X patch adds some new moves but it won't hold your hand in explaining them. If you...
Free? From WB?
While you will have to pay to have Predator in Mortal Kombat X, miserly Warner Bros. is throwing some nostalgic scraps players' way.
You'll be able to download the hinted-at Klassic Fatality Pack 1 for free in celebration of...
Those lasers can't be good for you
Predator only hunts in tropical jungles, right? We don't need to be worried about keeping an eye out for his tell-tale shimmer anywhere else? It seems too stressful being constantly on guard against the world's finest hunter...
That ugly mofo is $4.99
Although it was possible to fight the Predator in Mortal Kombat X recently, he'll be making his way officially as a combatant very soon. NetherRealm has announced that his debut will be July 7, at which point he will ru...
Nice work NetherRealm
Just this week, the Predator was unveiled by way of Mortal Kombat X's Tower Mode, where players were able to face him as a CPU opponent. People have been recording nonstop since then, trying out every single possible ability ...
All great ideas go to Heaven
Silent Hills was a dream game. Specifically, it was my dream game. If you asked me before P.T. crept onto the PSN servers what series I'd most like to see rejuvenated in a bold new way, I would have probably told you Silent H...
And there's a lot of competition
When Tanya joins the Mortal Kombat X cast tomorrow, I think she'll bring with her my favorite Fatality I've seen so far. It's simple, elegant in a way. You know, as elegant as you can be while creating a person-sized ca...
If the visiting Persepolis F.C. players felt like they got an icy reception at their recent Asian Champions League match, well, it's because they did. Al Hilal's stadium was filled with fans who created a Mortal Kombat ...
Or his name ain't 'Boon'
Way before the game released (because that's how WB rolls), we knew the contents of the $30 Mortal Kombat X Kombat Pack. Jason Vorhees has already been released, but Tanya, who made an appearance in the game's story mode...
Ermac, Kenshi, and Cassie Cage fixed
Netherealms is chugging along at 200 miles an hour, bullet train style, with both DLC and hotfixes for all three current versions of Mortal Kombat X. After scrambling to fix the PC edition of the game, they're also moving on ...
Leave it to the kings of DLC
Warner Bros. is notorious for its preorder, DLC, and season pass bullshit, and Mortal Kombat X's Kombat Pack is no exception. Nicolas Jones sent us a tip about how he asked WB Games Support why the Kombat Pack didn't include all the DLC for the current season, as there have been various costume packs released that aren't included. WB's response:
A very small difference at the moment
The hyped has worked out for Mortal Kombat X it seems. It's done well both critically and commercially, and the fighting game community has taken a liking to it professionally as well. According to lead organizer Rick Th...
Not the movie
Ok, look. I did pay $.99 for a PSN avatar once. An Italian-flag-colored LittleBigPlanet sackboy back in whatever World Cup when LittleBigPlanet was still a thing. Probably 2002 or something. Still!
Mortal Kombat X's Ed Boon t...
Mortal Kombat X tops all software
According to April's NPD numbers, the Xbox One proved it has some legs as it claimed the top spot for the month's console sales by knocking the PlayStation 4 down a notch. While Sony may be leading the console race overall an...
Call him Mr. Brightside
Through decades of cinema, Jason Voorhees has been painted as a relentless killing machine. This Mortal Kombat X video which shows off the famed slasher's moveset accomplishes the exact same. The likes of Goro and Scorp...
Yesterday, NetherRealm's Ed Boon promised "huge improvements" for the PC version of Mortal Kombat X, which does not work as well as the console version. This came in the form of an extensive 15GB patch, detailed here.
About bloody time
Mortal Kombat X on PC has been like an extremely tasty looking bowl of soup that is way too hot to eat. Every time I try and take a sip, I get a mouthful of scalding molten pain (laggy, unplayable matches being the metaphoric...
$7.99 for the bundle or part of the Season Pass
The season of DLC is upon Mortal Kombat X, less than a month after its launch. In addition to a ton of day-one DLC, the Jason Voorhees character add-on is out tomorrow for Season Pass owners, with a few confusing pricing opt...
Celebrate Friday the 13th on Cinco de Mayo
Instead of slashing teenagers, everyone's favorite camping buddy will now be fighting against the Mortal Kombat X krew. NetherRealm has confirmed that Jason Voorhees will join the fight on May 5, but only for those playe...
As most people expected
While the PC version of Mortal Kombat X is still being worked on, modders are discovering playable characters that aren't in the core game outside of CPU-controlled story elements, like Baraka, Rain, and Sindel.
Zen distilled stories
The biggest story last week was Mortal Kombat X's handling of downloadable content. Warner Bros. should relinquish itself of its greed and earthly possessions. That is the first step on the path to Enlightenment.
In this ser...
PC should have been delayed along with 360 and PS3
The PC version of Mortal Kombat X was broken at launch. High Voltage Software (not NetherRealm) was responsible for the port, and it seems it's aware of all of the issues it has caused over the past week or so.
I have never played a game that I've wanted to love so badly that seems so set and determined to antagonize me than the PC port of Mortal Kombat X. In the abstract, Mortal Kombat X is a great game. The single player content i...
