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!

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?

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...

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'

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...

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...

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

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

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...

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...

Mortal Kombat X's fatalities too hard? Pay to make them easy


You're killing me
Apr 14

We'll be testing online play first

You do it to yourself, you do, and that's what really hurts
Apr 11
 
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...




Won't somebody think of the children?


Decapitations for the YouTube generation
Apr 09
 
When I was a little boy, Mortal Kombat was a tough sell around my home. Like most pre-adolescents of the era, I was darkly attracted to the idea of ninjas and movie stars decapitating each other in bouts of gladiatorial comba...

Remember, Goro is a Mortal Kombat X pre-order bonus


And paid DLC down the line
Apr 07
 
I don't remember unlocking Goro in the Mortal Kombat 4 N64 port and that's about as far as I got with the series. Well, aside from a weekend spent with a rented Mortal Kombat Versus DC, but I'm sure plenty of voi dig th...

So far there are four

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!?

Scanners.gif
Mar 20
 
Mortal Kombat X recently showed off an Ermac fatality that is actually pretty dang icky. Do check it out if you're not the squeamish sort. Less visceral -- and, wow, isn't it great when a series is so over the top an explodin...
