PC Port Report: Mortal Kombat X

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...

Looks like Mewtwo had custom movesets after all in the new Super Smash Bros, but will they ever arrive?

Mewtwo's new incarnation in Super Smash Bros. might be on the juice, but he severely lacks one major feature -- custom moves. For whatever reason they are not included at the launch of the character, and Nintendo has be...

Takeda gains an extra move in this Mortal Kombat X patch

How to make Ryu an interesting character in Super Smash Bros. photo
How to make Ryu an interesting character in Super Smash Bros.
by Patrick Hancock

Street Fighter's Ryu is currently rumored to be coming to Nintendo's newest entry into the Super Smash Bros. series, thanks to some hidden files in the most recent update to the game. It makes a lot of sense; Capcom already has a representative in the game, a new Street Fighter is coming out, and EVO and E3 are right around the corner.

However, if Nintendo just plops Ryu into the game and gives him the moves everyone expects him to have, it will be extremely underwhelming. Ryu would essentially be a clone of Mario, and that's not an appropriate fate for one of the most recognizable fighters of all time. Mr. Sakurai has said before that he wants to "[provide] accurate portrayals of characters," which is the reason why Ridley isn't in the game. It's also incredibly obvious to anyone who has played Mega Man in the newest Super Smash Bros.

There's plenty Nintendo and Capcom could do to make Ryu an interesting character that players will want to play as and -- this is important, Nintendo -- purchase as DLC.

Mewtwo in Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS is on the juice photo
Mewtwo in Smash Bros. for the Wii U and 3DS is on the juice
by Jonathan Holmes

A new era of Smash Bros. has arrived. Speculation about who's going to be next icon to join the all-star roster can become a daily part of our lives again. Starting today with the original uber-Pokémon Mewtwo, the age of Smash Bros. DLC roster updates has officially begun.

Dramatic! Amazing! Or at least, that's how it felt.

The reality of playing Mewtwo in Smash Bros. for the Wii U and the 3DS will probably feel a lot less climactic to a lot of you, at least at first. The announcement of his inclusion in the games was incredibly exciting, as it brought with it the promise of prolonged hope for fan-favorite characters to appear in future DLC updates. The actual arrival of Mewtwo in the games is a different story. Hype has not been kind to the genetic Pokémon. Unless you're already a huge fan of the character, or not already familiar with him from Melee, you may be initially underwhelmed by his grand return. 

Still, anyone who sticks with him will find that he's an interesting and fulfilling addition to roster. He's different enough from how he played in Melee to inspire exploration, while familiar enough to please most loyalists.

J-Stars Victory Vs+ is a shallow masher, but it's fanservice done right photo
J-Stars Victory Vs+ is a shallow masher, but it's fanservice done right
by Chris Carter

It doesn't take an otaku to see the appeal of J-Stars Victory Vs+. It features a host of famous anime characters, from Kenshin to Goku to Naruto. It's like the Marvel vs. Capcom of Shōnen Jump properties, a magazine that's been going strong since the 1960s.

After actually playing the game, I didn't come away particularly impressed with its fighting mechanics, but I can't resist the sheer fun factor of slicing and blasting away with some of my favorite characters.

Review: Mortal Kombat X
by Chris Carter

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 seas of change.

Mortal Kombat X is more of the former situation, seeking to play it safe by incrementally improving upon the strong foundation set forth in 2011's reboot. Thankfully, that's not a bad thing.

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