The Galaxy S7 edge Injustice Edition package is equipped with a sleek deep black Galaxy S7 edge, accentuated by gold detailing and an iconic seal on the back, inspired by Batman. The package additionally offers a Gear VR (in select territories), along with Injustice game credit and Oculus VR content vouchers.

There hasn't been much word on the new/next Mortal Kombat movie that has been supposedly in the works for some time now. However, through ComicBook.com they posted a very interesting interview with Megax Fox in regards to superheroes. She begins talking about her role as April in the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies and is later asked in the interview about what "villain" would she like to portray. She struggles to find a real answer and then she grasps onto Mortal Kombat's Kitana. She mentions that she's always loved her fan blades, etc.

The question is: what is happening with the new

The culmination of 8 weeks of tournaments came to an end. The story of season 2 was that of ATP's dominance with Alien. The question leading up to our Finals was if ATP would dominate once more, or if the other top 8 could defeat him for the first time this season. It was a large chip to bear but Austin's last chance warriors came ready.

1. Vibu (Shaolin Kung Jin)
2. ATP (Acidic/Tarkatan Alien)
3. RyuuJin882 (Ronin Takeda)
4. Dust (Lasher Takeda, Piercing Mileena)
5. Izzzzymode (Shaolin Kung Jin)
5. Brytor (Goro, Sektor)
6. JD (WG Kotal)
6. BlitzTheWolf (KL, Alien, EB)

Hey all. So I was watching an ESL broadcast and there was a Takeda Kombat Class going on. I was like "Not enough NJP" and @EGP Wonder_Chef suggested a broken alternative of the actual Kombat Class. So here it is! Enjoy this new series of the Scrub Class. In this episode, I will show you everything you need to know about Sonya Blade. Enjoy! Peace!

What's up TYM?! Have you ever wanted to learn more about the Australian MKX scene? Have you ever thought "Man, we've seen players from the US, the UK, CIS and Latin America, but where the hell are our mates from down under?" Then THIS is the show for you.

Off the back of the recent Australian major Battle Arena Melbourne 8 (won by none other than @Googiemona himself), I'll be setting up a KOTH with as many of the top 8 as I can to relax, have some games, and talk about our scene and MKX in general. It'll follow a somewhat similar format to the regular Friendly Alliance episodes, but will contain lots of guests so you can get to know some of Australia's best! Expect something similar to what Pig's been doing with his podcast, but with Australian players.

Hey, guys. So I've decided to make a video about Tremor's current unblockable or hard to blockable set up he currently has in MKXL. This isn't anything new and has been discovered by @m2dave a long time ago. But due to some of the players who frequent my stream and that think it was patched out and wondering how it works, I have a video below explaining the set up and how you can escape it and the overall mindgame behind it:

2. Vibu (Shaolin Kung Jin)
3. DrGoodBear (FF Liu Kang, Tempest Kung Lao)

There were a number of hurdles that we had to overcome last night, not the least of which was switching venues mid tournament. Because of the delays two players had to leave before they could finish their matches. However, we had the biggest turnout of the year so far, with at least 3 new faces also. Most importantly, everyone had fun! Check out more below:
