Pick Out One Of These Mortal Kombat X Special Editions

Posted by Bob Muir on Feb 4, 2015 in Videogames

Mortal Kombat X: Kollector's Edition

Mortal Kombat X is a game coming out at this specific point in time, so of course, there are going to be four special editions, because that’s just how big games are sold. So which should you pick if you find yourself with excess cash? Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment would probably recommend the Mortal Kombat X Kollector’s Edition by Coarse, which includes a special Scorpion figurine designed by collector statue-maker Coarse, a gold Scorpion skin based on Coarse’s design, and the Kombat Pack (access to four more characters, both old and guest). At $149.99, it’s expensive, but not the most expensive option. Read more…

EVO 2015 Line-up Announced

Posted by Bob Muir on Jan 22, 2015 in Videogames

EVO 2015

Playing fighting games is great, even if I’m merely competent. But watching the pros at the EVO Championship Series every July is another thing entirely. The back and forth is actually exciting, with massive levels of “hype” to savor. This year’s EVO is being held July 17-19 at the Bally’s/Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, and the main tournaments have been announced. The games are: Ultra Street Fighter IV, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN-, Killer Instinct, Mortal Kombat X, Persona 4 Arena Ultimax, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Tekken 7. I’m sad my personal fave BlazBlue isn’t in there, but it’s understandable when two other Arc System Works games are in there. What’s more annoying is the lack of King of Fighters XIII, easily one of the most exciting tournaments in previous years. I’d rather have that in there than two Smash Bros. tournaments, but I guess Nintendo wanted to show off their newest game while allowing hardcore players to play their tournament classic. Read more…

Customize Kano In Mortal Kombat X

Posted by Bob Muir on Aug 12, 2014 in Videogames


As one of the oldest characters in the series, it was a safe bet that Kano would return in Mortal Kombat X. In the latest video, Creative Director Ed Boon breaks down the new changes to the character. Besides the usual visual overhaul, take note of the glowing circle on his chest. Players can change it to one of three colors, each representing a customized style of combat with different movesets. While I’d imagine the character is mostly the same between versions, each one gives him certain toys to play with. Cutthroat Kano uses knife combos, Cybernetic Kano uses laser eyes and weapons, and Commando Kano is a grappler. I hope each character in the game gets several customization options, since it’s a good way to add variety to the cast. Read more…

Mortal Kombat X Coming In 2015

Posted by Bob Muir on Jun 3, 2014 in Videogames

Mortal Kombat X

After many years of mediocre fighters, Midway finally made a comeback with 2011’s Mortal Kombat, sometimes called Mortal Kombat 9, and kept that success going into the DC fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us. So it’s not surprising, but still a nice surprise, to see a trailer for Mortal Kombat X, the newly-announced next game in the series. It doesn’t show any actual gameplay, consisting of a prerendered fight scene of Scorpion fighting Sub-Zero. But with some traditional 2D camera angles, you get a sense for what they want the final product to look like. Maybe we’ll see something at E3 next week? Read more…



Mortal Kombat: Legacy II Trailer

Posted by Ben Huber on Sep 16, 2013 in Fandom, Television


The Mortal Kombat web series is a pretty unique success. Rarely do you seem game-based videos that not only look good but also translate the material well. While nothing is perfect, Mortal Kombat: Legacy was one of the most impressive online shows around. And now, they’re back for season 2. Mortal Kombat: Legacy II will continue the story, but you’ll also get to see it all at once! Taking a page from Netflix, Machinima is releasing all the episodes simultaneously so if you’re a binge viewer, you’re in luck. Check out the trailer below, and get ready for the series debut on September 26th. Read more…



New Street Fighter Update, Additional Injustice Characters Revealed At EVO 2013

Posted by Bob Muir on Jul 16, 2013 in Comic Books, Videogames

Ultra Street Fighter IV

If you were watching EVO 2013 over the weekend — which had a ton of intense, fun-t0-watch matches! — then you’ll have already heard about several fighting game announcements. But if you didn’t (and shame on you), then here’s some news: Super Street Fighter IV will be getting another update, supplanting the current version (Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition – Version 2012). This new version replaces the long name and simply goes by Ultra Street Fighter IV. Along with the usual game rebalancing and other tweaks, five new characters will be added: Hugo, Poison, Elena, Rolento, and a fifth character who is supposedly all-new, having never appeared in a Street Fighter game before.

Trailer Reveals Why Batman Is Fighting Superman in Injustice: Gods Among Us

Posted by Bob Muir on Jan 31, 2013 in Comic Books, Videogames

Injustice: Gods Among Us

If you’re going to make a game like Injustice: Gods Among Us where superheroes beat each other up as well as the supervillains, you gotta at least give some reason for them to duke it out, however flimsy. The latest trailer does just that, showing Batman teaming up with Harley Quinn and Deathstroke to counter Superman’s fascist rule. Hm, sounds like Superman: Red Son! Read more…

Mortal Kombat VS Street Fighter Flash Mob

Posted by Ben Huber on Mar 17, 2012 in Fandom

I gotta say, flash mobs are interesting to me. They sit in a unique place in my heart, nestled right between ‘awkward’ and ‘awesome.’ On one hand I love that a bunch of people can just go out and do something, purely for fun. On the other, sometimes the hassling of other people looks like it might be a bit much. Here, a bunch of cosplayers dressing up as Street Fight and Mortal Kombat characters dance it out in New York. This one seems to be just a bunch of silly fun, and it left a smile on my face. Fun stuff!

Steam PSA: PixelJunk Eden and Mortal Kombat Kollection now on PC

Posted by Ben Huber on Feb 4, 2012 in Videogames


Good news for PC gamers: you can now get games that have already been out for a while! Ok, joking aside, PixelJunk Eden and Mortal Kombat Kollection are now on Steam at great prices ($7.99 and $8.49 respectively). Both are great games, but I understand Mortal Kombat features Games For Windows Live DRM on it, which may be a dealbreaker for some. Eden has a few new features added as well, and the Steam page claims “completely re-imagined controls for the mouse.” Sounds great!

Mortal Kombat Legacy; You Got Caged!

Posted by Tim Sheehy on Apr 28, 2011 in Videogames

Back in January, fellow fanboy Michael Sacco informed us that Warner Brothers would be adapting Kevin Tancharoen’s Mortal Kombat film pitch as a web-based miniseries. As I’m sure many of you already know, Mortal Kombat: Legacy began “airing” earlier this month. So far, they’re about three episodes in and despite some initial gripes, it’s been getting better and better. The latest episode even features a guest appearance by the game’s creator Ed Boon. While it’s not exactly as gritty as the initial pitch, I still want to see where they plan on taking the series. Who knows, if it proves to be popular enough, we may even see a transition to network television. Read more…

Remember That Mortal Kombat Short Film? It’s a Web Series Now

Posted by Michael Sacco on Jan 15, 2011 in Cinema, Television, Videogames

Mortal Kombat: Rebirth

A few months ago, director Kevin Tancharoen released a short film that was intended as a pitch to Warner Bros. for a grittier, more realistic Mortal Kombat film. It was definitely a hit with the fans, but it didn’t succeed in getting picked up as a full-length feature. Bloody Disgusting reports that Tancharoen and the short’s star, Michael Jai White, got a deal almost as good, though: a ten-episode Mortal Kombat web series! Several of the usual suspects are slated to make an appearance in the series as well, including Shang Tsung, Liu Kang, Sub Zero, Durak, Kabal, Kitana, Mileena and Scorpion. There’s no release date for the series yet, but production will begin in Vancouver in February. Read more…
