My first thought after seeing a person sawed in half from skull to waist should not be “That’s it?” Way to desensitize me to violence, Mortal Kombat X.
One of the new characters coming to Mortal Kombat X is an amalgam of three man-machine characters from the fighting game franchise’s history. But it turns out that there’s another robot ninja lurking inside that chassis. One who makes things a whole lot cooler.
Mortal Kombat X was’t very good on the PC. While not the outright disaster that Batman: Arkham Knight was, it was still plagued with technical problems. A community still formed around the fighting sequel, but Warner Bros. and NetherRealm are cutting ties with PC players; there will be no more DLC for it.
Out on March 1, Mortal Kombat XL is a new version of last year’s hit fighting game that bundles together the core game and all of the DLC released so far. It’ll include the characters coming with Kombat Pack 2, so it stands to reason that the add-on will be out on or before MKXL’s release date.
How I’ve missed you, Bo’ Rai Cho. Alien, Leatherface, Triborg—those guys want to kill me. You just want to get drunk, throw up on me and maybe fart in my face. It’s like they made my older brother a Mortal Kombat character.
Costume? Check. Make-up? Check. Bloody organ? Check.
It sucks that Will Smith won’t be in the Independence Day sequel—but wait ‘til you hear the random explanation for his character being gone. Alas, this is standard practice. When stars decide not to come back, movies come up with rationales for writing them out, that go beyond “dog ate my homework.”
The next slate of Mortal Kombat X characters includes Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s Leatherface, Alien’s xenomorph, Bo Rai Cho, and Tri-Borg. Bo Rai Cho is described as “master of the drunken fist” and Tri-Borg is a mashup of Cyrax, Sektor, and Robot Smoke. They’re arriving “first quarter of 2016.”
Two pro players, Xarakamaka and st9rm, played one of the best Mortal Kombat X matches I’ve recently seen last night, during the ESL Pro League Season 2 semifinals. It was full of perfect combos, block strings and last second comebacks.
It’s hard to imagine, but the cast of Mortal Kombat weren’t always adults. At some point, they were kids.
This isn’t the first time I’ve seen cosplayers make this joke, but it’s definitely the best.
After multiple delays left the fate of last-gen versions of Mortal Kombat X hazy, Warner Bros. finally makes it official: they’re not going to finish them.
Here’s undeniable proof that Mortal Kombat and Enter the Dragon are indeed one in the same.
After years of watching and playing Mortal Kombat, it’s rare to see a fatality that makes me go ‘holy shit.’ Most of them try a little too hard. Somehow, though, these folks have found a way to make fatalities shocking again.
UFC star Ronda Rousey held an “Ask Me Anything” crowd interview on Reddit today, and almost immediately, she discussed a ton of nerdy stuff. Here are some of her best answers.
Whether it’s a classic adventure game, or a shooter that came out a few months, ago it doesn’t matter. Some developers and publishers just can’t resist putting themselves in their games, usually as a hidden easter egg, but sometimes they’re just right in front of us. YouTubers at OutsideXbox collected seven of these…
If Mortal Kombat went back in time and made sweet love to Pitfall, the result would look something like this.
Having appeared in two previous Mortal Kombat games in non or barely playable form, the artist formerly known as The Tan Ninja makes his fully playable debut this week in Mortal Kombat X.
A former Midway Games employee is raising money on Kickstarter for a documentary called Insert Coin, a look at the studio in the 90s. At the time, Midway was pumping out classic after classic—NBA Jam, Mortal Kombat, Smash TV. Looks interesting!
