Mortal Kombat XL patch takes a crowbar to the DLC characters

A fresh patch went live for MKXL today and it was a bloodbath. As foretold in my prophetic impressions piece at the beginning of the month, the day of reckoning has come for the DLC characters introduced in Kombat Pack 2. While th...

Would you spend a whole paycheck on a Mortal Kombat statue?

You're going to need quite a bit of expendable income to get in on this statue. Pop Culture Shock has announced a 28-inch Reptile collectible that will only clock in at 350 units. It's also $750. But you know what? Mortal Kombat has su...

Blind Mortal Kombat player demonstrates how important accessibility is

Ross Minor is blind, but that doesn't stop him from kicking ass in Mortal Kombat X as demonstrated. In the video above, Minor walks us through his thought process and how he manages to play without sight by utilizing sound effects. Im...

Input lag comparison

Interesting look at input lag in fighting games

Frames count. Microsecond delays between the push of a button and when that action is carried out can make or break a fighting game. After all, if you can't trust the game to respond when you need it to, what's the point? It can take a high...

Mortal Kombat XL provides a strong reason to come back to the arena

Don't write a hot take about SFV... Don't write a hot take about SFV... Don't write a hot take about SFV... Mortal Kombat XL should make Street Fighter V ashamed of itself. Dammit.

All the cool stuff Alien can do in Mortal Kombat X

When Alien eventually comes to Mortal Kombat X, it won't necessarily be the exact Alien we've come to know and love. It's a species cross-bred with Baraka, meaning that it's different. It's more upright and bipedal, and it has blades on it...

Mortal Kombat XL patch up on PS4 and Xbox One

The compatibility patch for MKX's XL expansion is live on both PS4 and Xbox One. Even for users who haven't purchased MK XL, the patch has a few goodies. Chief among them is a new stage (or rather a new version of an old stage), The Pit. Fi...

Free medieval skins for MKX players on March 1

I bet the Venn diagram for folks who dig on MKX and also love gruesome medieval stuff is damn near a solid circle. So plenty of people are probably going to be happy that a free pack of medieval themed skins for Kung Jin, Ferra/Torr, and my...

More Xenomorph info is coming soon for Mortal Kombat X

The Mortal Kombat X Season Pass Season 2 is on the way (not for PC though, haha), and NetherRealm Studios is set to share more info on the Xenomorph in the near future. On February 25 at 5PM ET, to be exact, when the developer wil...

Secret menus found in arcade versions of Mortal Kombat 1, 2, and 3

Watch Bo' Rai Cho fart on people in MKX

Ugh, I just don't like Bo' Rai Cho. I've been playing a lot of MKX lately and I'm actually pretty excited for Kombat Pack 2 and the MK XL update. The other characters in the pack look great, reports out of the improved online beta sound ama...

 
MKX horror
When NetherRealm announced it was going to put Freddy Krueger in Mortal Kombat, I thought it was a cheap cash in. And, as much as I hate to admit it, I also thought it was the coolest thing ever. I don't consider myself ...   read

Cyber Sub-Zero sneaks into MKX as Triborg's fourth variation

I never understood the popularity of Mortal Kombat's cyber-ninjas. I mean, you'd think if anyone could appreciate a pack of robots in a fighting game it would be me, but Cyrax, Sektor and the rest of the metal gang always seemed a tad too #...

Mortal Kombat X on PC won't receive new content, support looks to be discontinued

It seems as if Warner Bros. and NetherRealm have executed a Fatality on the PC version of Mortal Kombat X. Eagle-eyed Internet sleuths have noticed that trailers for the upcoming add-on characters haven't included a designation for PC. As i...

Surprise! Mortal Kombat X is getting its own Komplete Edition

In a totally "unexpected" turn of events, Mortal Kombat X is getting a GOTY edition of sorts. It's called Mortal Kombat XL, and it's packaged with the core game, as well as both Kombat Packs -- that includes the first one that already ...

Fighting games (and DLC) to look forward to in 2016

[The horizon is bright for fighting games, so I thought I'd have Virtua Kazama take the stage and talk about some of the biggest fighting games coming to 2016 for a new year of salt. But a quickie note, Kazama had a lapse in memory and forg...

Alien and a drunken fart man killing everything in a new Mortal Kombat X video

Nic's best of the year

This Mortal Kombat X cosplay is pretty insane

I don't do cosplay updates often, but when I do, it's because I'm pretty jazzed about the amount of effort that went into it. That's the case for this Kotal Khan (Mortal Kombat X) cosplay by Yeliz, with photography done by SLDixon. In terms...

Jason terrorizes more Mortal Kombat X players today

Like a mall Santa without any other prospects, Jason Voorhees lives for one time of year. (Or maybe he's dead? I don't know.) Regardless, Halloween is kind of Jason's bread and butter because then he can show up, scare some people, and go ...

Broken ass PC versions didn't hurt Batman, Mortal Kombat sales

Both Mortal Kombat and Batman: Arkham Knight launched with busted, largely inoperable PC versions. In the case of Batman, it was so extreme that the game was delisted for sale on Steam and is still being patched and worked on four months la...
