Appearances from characters yet to be confirmed for the MKX roster are also a thing.

With MKX only 2 weeks away I'm sure many of you are all pondering who will be the character that best fits you. This thread is hopefully something that can help you when it comes times to make that decision.

Choosing a character is more about comfort level than anything. What does this mean? It means you obviously want a character where you can use your strengths as a player but that does not always equal comfort. Sometimes, no matter how much a character works off of our strengths, we can still be uncomfortable if the character doesn't also help cover up our weakness.

To choose the right character for you, you need to be honest with yourself. You need to be honest with yourself about your strengths, but even more so about your weaknesses. I cannot speak for any one player on their strengths and weaknesses as only that person would truly know. The only person I can speak for is myself so I will use myself as the example.

I am a great fighting game player with a BIG weakness -...
A quick reminder came down from the official Evolution Championship Series twitter account earlier reminding players about the Monday price increase. This is significant, especially for all of you Mortal Kombat X competitors who have been saving up to go to Vegas and compete. Save that money where you can!

So, if you plan on going and haven't registered yet, don't delay: http://evo.shoryuken.com/registration/
A recent find in Mortal Kombat X is something called Block Breakers. They are a pushblock-like mechanic that lets you "break" a blocked move for 2 bars of meter. The opponent is knocked down and sent back a distance. See the image below as an example.

In this Kombat Kast NetherRealm Studios will be going over three different characters and possible new fatalities. Shortly after the stream started Tyler and Derek mentioned that if you sign up for WB Play you will be able to get an alternate Raiden skin DAY 1 and this skin may also only be available through WB Play.
System of a Down is helping with the TV Spot so...yeah.

The following message is from @Shock

Attention FGC, NRS players and the likes. KombatNetwork humbly requests your help! In the past, many generous offers have been made to assist KN with what is known to be notoriously expensive finances, that have totaled nearly $10,000 in the last few years, and now is the time to help. KN will be running a non-profit fundraiser, or a "Hell" raiser, on March 28th all day to help our North East team offset the tremendous and continual costs for supplying equipment and guarantee the best possible experience for our players. Of those involved, will be KombatNetwork, Monster Island

Today, if anybody had doubts regarding the return of Liu Kang, this trailer, surfacing from the MAXIM Russia YouTube channel, should put those to rest. Titled the Official Shaolin Trailer, we are treated to a firsthand look at gameplay from three characters: Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and new cast member Kung Jin. Also included are new cutscenes from the Story Mode...and is that Bo' Rai Cho and Kenshi we're seeing, too?! Could this suggest possibilities for more unannounced additions to the roster, or perhaps more DLC?

While you speculate on those mysteries, start your morning off with some Shaolin hype! :D
Sup Guys!

I want to go to the event @Team GGA: Shang Tsung Fight Night.

Tonight, I will make a stream to get support with donations and to travel. I will be very grateful to anyone who can support me and I promise to help all MKX.

I'll be done combos (I can ask for stream), tricks, bugs and challenges FT3 in MK9 and classic. I'll reveal some secrets and how to do some tricks.
On fairly short notice, the venue for Southern California Regionals 2015 has fallen through. Organizer Alex Valle tweeted earlier today that a conflict with construction has left the event without a home. Postponing the tournament and finding a new venue for the current date are two options that are currently on the table, with more updates forthcoming.
We're exactly three weeks away from the official release of Mortal Kombat X so news of all sorts is to be expected. However, did you expect to see the Main Screen today? Well, thanks to Smosh Games Alliance, today we get a quick glimpse of what we can expect to see on release day!
For those who do not know, "Alternate controls" was something added in Injustice Gods Among Us. The default controls were Mortal Kombat style. Meaning, "Down, Back, Light" to do specials as an example. With "alternate controls" on, it changes it to Street Fighter style. So, it would be "Down, Quarter-Circle, Back" to do the same move instead. Hope that helps everyone understand what it means!

And these controls are confirmed (this link) to be returning in Mortal Kombat X!
In Soviet Russia Mortal Kombat X is coming our way to Saint-Petersburg! Our Mortal Kombat scene is going crazy getting ready and starting May 2nd... It has begun!!!!!

Prereg is finally open through Ticketmaster.


You will find a complete step by step process on how to register through ticketmaster as well as a link to the site.

Because of ticketmaster fees I have lowered prereg from 40 to 35 so that it is felt more on my end than yours. I have also added a raffle that will only be comprised by those that pre register. Qanba sticks, Noscope glasses, headsets, etc will be raffled off only to you guys.

Any questions or concerns PM me, post here, email me, or even facebook me.

Can't wait to see you there! Are you ready?
We recently learned that there has been a kollaborative effort between NetherRealm Studios and MKKollective.com artist fear-sAs in regards to the "Kold War" Scorpion skin that will be available in Mortal Kombat X. Our good friends over at @MKServer sent us a YouTube link to the artist's channel. fear-sAs recently uploaded a speed-run of the Kold War Scorpion skin.

This skin is surely going to be a favorite for many Scorpion players. On top of that
I expect it to just cover the Kombat Pack more than likely. Hopefully a couple reveals of Shinnok or Kenshi...better yet, both.
King of the Bill, presented by That Game Store. Featuring Mr. Aquaman, Decay, Forever King, and Honeybee.

Hello guys, I'm glad to announce a new podcast/hangout session, King of The Bill.
We came up with the idea after playing in king of the hill for a long time and getting great responses from the stream chat. What better way to talk and bring up a broad range of topics from "Kill/bang/marry" to "top 5 mustache gods in FGC"?
