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


Triborg looking cool
Jan 25
 
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 see...




Mortal Kombat X rewards players who waited it out


Get both Kombat Packs for cheap-ish
Jan 21
 
It's been a few months now since the second Kombat Pack for Mortal Kombat X was revealed, and while we've known which characters will appear in the DLC pack since last month, today Warner Bros. finally told us how much we'll have to pay to get our hands on them.




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


[Mortal Kombat voice] Get outta here
Jan 20
 
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 designati...

'XL'

I'll still blame the lag

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


Both silent and deadly
Jan 12
 
Few video game trailers are as effective and efficient as the Mortal Kombat X new character videos. They show the fighters, one at a time, destroying the opposition as you could theoretically do if you were controlling ...




This Mortal Kombat X cosplay is pretty insane


Kotal Khan
Jan 06
 
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 SL...

Alien vs Predator, Leatherface, Jason...
Dec 03

Jason terrorizes more Mortal Kombat X players today


Some of them will be teens
Oct 30
 
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 ...




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


Arkham Knight, MKX do 5 million
Oct 13
 
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...

Unmasked, these Mortal Kombat X characters are goofy as hell


Haha
Aug 12
 
Part of the magic of old school Mortal Kombat characters was hidden behind the mask. Although the maskless Sub-Zero rendition was one of my all-time favorites, I distinctly remember him being "uncool" after the mask came off ...

Go variationless in Mortal Kombat X with this trick


It's pretty easy
Jul 15
 
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...




Ever wonder who trains the Mortal Kombat X kombatants?


This guy
Jul 14
 
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. Classic Goro!

Free? From WB?

Predator drops cloak and puts up dukes tomorrow in Mortal Kombat X


Those lasers can't be good for you
Jul 06
 
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
Jul 03
 
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

Tanya in Mortal Kombat X has my favorite Fatality yet


And there's a lot of competition
Jun 01
 
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...

Or his name ain't 'Boon'
May 25

The false advertising of Mortal Kombat's Kombat Pack


Leave it to the kings of DLC
May 20
 
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:




Mortal Kombat X is nearly as popular as Ultra Street Fighter IV at Combo Breaker


A very small difference at the moment
May 19
 
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...




Mortal Kombat X gets, uh, Brazil costume pack


Not the movie
May 19
 
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...




Jason's Mortal Kombat X Fatality is such classic Jason


Call him Mr. Brightside
May 08
 
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...




Huge Mortal Kombat X patch meant to fix PC problems deletes save data


Oops
May 05

NetherRealm promises 'huge improvements' for the PC port of Mortal Kombat X


About bloody time
May 05
 
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...

PC Port Report: Mortal Kombat X


Never-ending Brutality
Apr 20
 
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...




Takeda gains an extra move in this Mortal Kombat X patch


Right on
Apr 20
 
I wasn't a fan of Mortal Kombat X's Takeda, both in terms of his characterization or his playstyle, but he's gaining a new move this week courtesy of the 1.02 update. It's called "Quick Kall," and with allow him to return a d...

Are klassik fatalities koming to Mortal Kombat X?


Steam certainly seems to think so
Apr 20
 
Mortal Kombat X is a game largely about violently ripping people limb from limb. There's so many ways to viciously eviscerate your enemies that the average player will have their blood-lust satiated for weeks. But what if you...




Wayne Brady will rip out your spine in MK X


He's laughing just thinking about it
Apr 17
 
Normally a celebrity event like this Mortal Kombat X launch tournament would be the sort of thing that makes my skin crawl. A slimy affair of glad-handing B-list celebrities on the downslope of their careers trying to appear...

Rain, Baraka, and Sindel playable on PC
Apr 17

Review: Mortal Kombat X


Still not ready for a series Fatality
Apr 14
 
Fighting game developers are in a really tough spot when it comes to sequels. If you don't iterate enough, newcomers will be tempted to call it a "rehash." If you iterate too much, hardcore fans may feel alienated by the vast...




Mortal Kombat X's DLC model is a disservice to NetherRealm by Warner Bros.


Make sure you sign up for a WB login for that Raiden skin (sadface)
Apr 14
 
Mortal Kombat X has launched, and with it, a decent amount of DLC. If you count just one "five" and one "thirty" easy Fatality token pack each, the price totals $58. That's not including the $60 game purchase. On sa...

You're killing me
Apr 14

We'll be testing online play first
