Watch Bo' Rai Cho fart on people in MKX

Ugh, I just don't like Bo' Rai Cho. I've been playing a lot of MKX lately and I'm actually pretty excited for Kombat Pack 2 and the MK XL update. The other characters in the pack look great, reports out of the improved online beta sound ama...   read

Horror movie characters I want to see in MKX

When NetherRealm announced it was going to put Freddy Krueger in Mortal Kombat, I thought it was a cheap cash in. And, as much as I hate to admit it, I also thought it was the coolest thing ever. I don't consider myself a huge horror g...   read

Cyber Sub-Zero sneaks into MKX as Triborg's fourth variation

I never understood the popularity of Mortal Kombat's cyber-ninjas. I mean, you'd think if anyone could appreciate a pack of robots in a fighting game it would be me, but Cyrax, Sektor and the rest of the metal gang always seemed a tad too #...   read

Mortal Kombat X on PC won't receive new content, support looks to be discontinued

It seems as if Warner Bros. and NetherRealm have executed a Fatality on the PC version of Mortal Kombat X. Eagle-eyed Internet sleuths have noticed that trailers for the upcoming add-on characters haven't included a designation for PC. As i...   read

[The horizon is bright for fighting games, so I thought I'd have Virtua Kazama take the stage and talk about some of the biggest fighting games coming to 2016 for a new year of salt. But a quickie note, Kazama had a lapse in memory and forg...   read

This Mortal Kombat X cosplay is pretty insane

I don't do cosplay updates often, but when I do, it's because I'm pretty jazzed about the amount of effort that went into it. That's the case for this Kotal Khan (Mortal Kombat X) cosplay by Yeliz, with photography done by SLDixon. In terms...   read
