Decapitations for the YouTube generation

Cowboy Erron Black revealed for Mortal Kombat X


The good, the bad, and the bloody
Mar 27
Erron Black is the hot new Clint Eastwood-like character revealed in the above trailer for Mortal Kombat X. He's like a cooler gun-slinging version of Stryker, the silly cop character from earlier Mortal Kombat games. So when do we get to see Nightwolf appropriately kill Erron Black? Because that needs to happen stat, you hear me Netherrealm Studios!? read

Congratulations, Mortal Kombat X. I didn't expect to be briefly surprised and grossed out by a Fatality this side of Y2K and JNCO jeans, but you've done it. This is pretty gnarly. Look at all that viscera. I'm calling PETIO (people for the ethical treatment of inner organs: let's keep our insides inside). It's even better in enormous GIF form. read
