Interesting look at input lag in fighting games

Frames count. Microsecond delays between the push of a button and when that action is carried out can make or break a fighting game. After all, if you can't trust the game to respond when you need it to, what's the point? It can take a high...   read

Mortal Kombat XL provides a strong reason to come back to the arena

Don't write a hot take about SFV... Don't write a hot take about SFV... Don't write a hot take about SFV... Mortal Kombat XL should make Street Fighter V ashamed of itself. Dammit.   read

All the cool stuff Alien can do in Mortal Kombat X

When Alien eventually comes to Mortal Kombat X, it won't necessarily be the exact Alien we've come to know and love. It's a species cross-bred with Baraka, meaning that it's different. It's more upright and bipedal, and it has blades on it...   read

Free medieval skins for MKX players on March 1
