Wayne Brady will rip out your spine in MK X

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

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.

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

Fatalities are, in most people's opinion, the coolest part of Mortal Kombat. In a franchise about ruthlessly beating up your opponent, fatalities are when these games are at their most brutal -- a blood-drenched pot of gold a...

Erron Black is the hot new Clint Eastwood-like character revealed in the above trailer for Mortal Kombat X.

Uh, ew: Ermac's Mortal Kombat Fatality is disgusting and visceral

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.

Mortal Kombat X introduces online factions and brings back the Challenge Tower

Two more months. Just two more months. That's what I have to keep telling myself while agonizing over the release of Mortal Kombat X. As someone who logged nearly 7,000 matches into the last Mortal Kombat, and still plays Injustice from time to time, any new info is good news, and NetherRealm has recently dropped a lot of details on the game's online modes.
