This is the greatest fatality in Mortal Kombat history

I remember the first time I saw a fatality in Mortal Kombat. I was watching some other kid play at an arcade in Monroe, WA and he successfully pulled off Sub-Zero’s spine rip. It was shocking to see as a seven-year-old in 1992, and ju...

Warming up to Sub-Zero in Injustice 2

I hated Sub-Zero in Mortal Kombat X and dreaded his arrival in Injustice 2. His combination of clones and unrelenting pressure made him a nightmare to deal with in MKX. He was a sadist, a bully who would trap you in the corner and keep you ...

Sub-Zero looks like an icehole in Injustice 2

Now that Red Hood was added to the Injustice 2 roster this week, it's time to keep the DLC train rolling with the other characters. Following Scorpion's guest appearance in the previous Injustice title, Sub-Zero also brings a distinct, chi...

You've got character: Kotal Kahn (Blood God)

When it comes to competitive multiplayer games, we all have our favorite characters and classes. In this series, I'm putting some of mine under the microscope to see what makes them tick, how they fit into their games, and ultimately why I ...

You can punch this Goro in the nuts for $1,400

Haha, payment plans for a Mortal Kombat statue. I laughed out loud when I scrolled down on this $1,400 Goro statue listing. I know someone is going to do it! Yes, it's true, Pop Culture Shock Toys is getting an exclusive 1:3 scale Goro...

How will the AT&T / Warner merger change games?

In case you hadn't heard, AT&T announced Saturday that it intends to purchase Time Warner, Inc. for $85.4 billion. The deal is far from final, and if approved, wouldn't take place until sometime in 2017. It's an absolutely enormous merg...

The formation of the ESRB makes for a cool story

Gaming, as it is today, is fairly open to creative ideas. There are no real limits on the stuff people can make and that is good. No one benefits from media that censors important subjects, even if gaming tends to muck up the subject materi...

So, Mortal Kombat XL is heading to PC

WB Games has been giving players the run around with PC support as of late, but it looks like there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Mortal Kombat XL has now been confirmed for PC release, or at least Kombat Pack 2 is heading ...

Ed Boon had a lot of Mortal Kombat fans in a frenzy with this morning's tweet of a possible PC launch for Mortal Kombat XL. Now, out of nowhere, an open beta for the game's multiplayer has launched on Steam. To download the beta, just ...

It's EVO 2016 weekend! Let's watch some fighting games

Gosh, it's already here. It's EVO 2016 weekend! The celebrated fighting game tournament began earlier today in Las Vegas, and I've been struggling all morning to tear myself away from watching Smash Bros. on the main stream. Let's get righ...

 
 
 
Injustice: Gods Among Us photo

Which DC heroes and villains do you want in Injustice 2?

French site Gameblog.fr is reporting that Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm is working on a follow-up to DC fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us, likely to be announced at E3. While it kind of strikes an odd timing -- the previous game came o...

Would you spend a whole paycheck on a Mortal Kombat statue?

You're going to need quite a bit of expendable income to get in on this statue. Pop Culture Shock has announced a 28-inch Reptile collectible that will only clock in at 350 units. It's also $750. But you know what? Mortal Kombat has su...

 
 
 
Input lag comparison photo

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...

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...

Mortal Kombat XL patch up on PS4 and Xbox One

The compatibility patch for MKX's XL expansion is live on both PS4 and Xbox One. Even for users who haven't purchased MK XL, the patch has a few goodies. Chief among them is a new stage (or rather a new version of an old stage), The Pit. Fi...

Free medieval skins for MKX players on March 1

I bet the Venn diagram for folks who dig on MKX and also love gruesome medieval stuff is damn near a solid circle. So plenty of people are probably going to be happy that a free pack of medieval themed skins for Kung Jin, Ferra/Torr, and my...
