The perfect Mortal Kombat movie cast, CONFIRMED photo
The perfect Mortal Kombat movie cast, CONFIRMED
by Jim Sterling

Mortal Kombat has another live-action movie in the works, and it's probably not going to be very good. That doesn't mean it has to be awful, though. The right blend of actors can turn any film, no matter how cynical, into a classic worthy of the Oscars. Yes, even a videogame movie!

As a budding Hollywood producer, I have slaved over hot data and juicy demographics with my crack team to scientifically distill a perfect Mortal Kombat movie cast -- the actors and actresses qualified above all else to bring this classic fighting game franchise to life. Including our conceptual mockups, we hope to present this to George Lucas himself, so he may give us his almighty blessing. 

Behold, the perfect Mortal Kombat movie cast!

Mortal Kombat: Legacy season 2 features a Hollywood actor

Season one of the live-action Mortal Kombat: Legacy series focused on various character's back stories, and was pretty boring for the most part. With season two, the team behind the project are diving right into the Mortal K...

Storm's Adventure with Mortal Kombat

Witness another poor decision on my part. Street Fighter IV taught me not to play modern fighting games, or, at the very least, speak my opinion of them in public. Of course, that was before I was able to post to t...

Mortal Kombat: Legacy returns for a second season

Mortal Kombat: Legacy was the fairly popular live-action series that ran on Machinima last year. I personally enjoyed it immensely, even though some folks were a bit lukewarm on the project. But, I mean, c'mon! Michael Jai W...

[Update: New screenshots added.]

Injustice: Gods Among Us is a fighting game that brings together the DC Universe characters for a beatdown festival that only world-class superheroes and villains could give us. Ed Boon himself showed it off to select press recently, and it was there where he said that he wanted to introduce new fighting game features that would move the genre forward.

He may have succeeded, and along with that created a virtual test ground to settle arguments that have been plaguing nerdkind for ages.

Review: Mortal Kombat (Vita)
by Brett Zeidler

When the reboot of Mortal Kombat launched in April of last year, it was clear the series was back in a huge way. The game went back to the 2D style of the classic entries, fatalities were ultra-violent again, and there was seemingly endless content to enjoy.

A nice chunk of downloadable content and a Komplete Edition later, NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. have now moved on to bringing the colossal fighter to the PlayStation Vita. Is it a faithful port with a healthy amount of new additions, or did something get lost in translation?

Mileena and Kitana duke it out in Mortal Kombat Vita ad

A new week, a new full length live action teaser for Mortal Kombat on Vita. So, it seems that Warner Bros. lied when they said that the video featuring only Kitana was the full length video, because this is the same exact tr...

There's just something about playing fighting games on the go that's extremely exciting to me. Especially nowadays when handhelds have almost caught up to their console brothers in terms of capability, and games like Super S...

Review: Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition photo
Review: Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition
by Jonathan Holmes

Hey everybody! Fighting games are back! And you know what that means, right? Semi-sequel "updates" to fighting games are also back! BlazBlue, King of Fighters, Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, and of course Street Fighter have all seen at least one retail-packaged upgrade since their respective launches (or relaunches), which have all had varying levels of critical and commercial success. 

Never one to be left out, Mortal Kombat has thrown its ultimate hat into the Super Arcade Edition ring, with a retail repackaging of the latest Mortal Kombat release, now infused with all the game DLC, plus digital copies of some Mortal Kombat-themed media. It's a very different kind of package than what Capcom has provided for Street Fighter and Marvel Vs. Capcom fans, but that's Mortal Kombat for you: always content to walk down its own path.

But is Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition a path worth paying $60 for?
