Good? Bad? I'm the guy with the gun

Dominique “cR|Sonic Fox” McLean shot and stabbed his way through the competition to become the first official Mortal Kombat X tournament winner this weekend. Sonic Fox dominated the ESL hosted Fatal 8 tournament a... read

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

Decapitations for the YouTube generation
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... read feature

My poor delicate constitution. Mortal Kombat X: All Fatalities and X-Rays So Far in 1080p 60fps [IGN] read

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... 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

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


Visceral...literally

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

Mortal Kombat X doesn't lose any brutality in its mobile version

Just because it's running on devices that aren't as powerful as PC or consoles, doesn't mean that Mortal Kombat X tones down the violence for its mobile version. No, judging by this gameplay video, all the skull-crunchi... read

Karnage with friends
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. Let's dig in. read feature

Yeah, like Reptile wasn't going to make the cut.  NetherRealm unveiled the lizard-like ninja in a trailer today, showcasing his scaly new look and classic moves on poor Kung Lao. Gotta admit, always been a big fan of that tongue and acid spit. Mortal Kombat X launches April 14 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Windows PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.

WWE Immortals looks like Mortal Kombat/Injustice meets wrestling
