You do it to yourself, you do, and that's what really hurts They say you should never marry for love, but I always do. Every single damn time. I guess you could call me a romantic. If you felt like being less charitable (and possibly more accurate), you could call me a scrub. I couldn... read feature

Different people have wildly different experiences with fighting games. Someone who's unskilled won't have near the same involvement as someone who's mastered its systems. But, there is one constant across anyone who tries th... read
If you're picking up Mortal Kombat X but don't feel like shelling out for the DLC, I don't blame you. The good news is that according to an interview with Angry Joe, Ed Boon has confirmed that all four current DLC characters ... read
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
Who could forget those special playground moments as a child? Maybe you're shootin' hoops are playing kickball, when you hear some kid scream "FIGHT!" at the top of his lungs. You drop everything immediately, because if you ... read

Mortal Kombat X has simply gone too far this time. Look, we've put up with Scorpions and Reptiles for decades because they aren't actual scorpions and reptiles. They're just bipedal dudes fixin' to rip someone's spine ou... 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
