NetherRealm Studios' Art Director, Steve Beran recently conducted an interview with Man Cave Daily talking about the true artistic side of Mortal Kombat X that we may not have given much thought to... yet. From the wide range of exchanged dialogue that will come from both new and old characters, down to the cinematic camera angles that Mortal Kombat X will be delivering, Steve Beran puts things in to perspective.

Considering the awesome story-lines that are shared among all characters in the world of Mortal Kombat, putting these little additives in to the fight itself may just have us more attached than ever to our favorite kombatants. Click to read more!...

All competitive gamers in the Pacific Northwest know Chris Anderson. He owns Gameclucks, the longest running gaming center in Washington, home of the monthly Saturday Slugfest tournaments. He also organizes Northwest Majors and PNW Regionals.

For the past 9 months he's had the support of his fiancé, the beautiful Brenda Welch. She's a delight, always friendly and helpful at his events. Usually running the bar or registration.

Unfortunately something terrible happened and Brenda is currently hospitalized. We're all in shock something so awful could happen to such a sweet woman. More details can be found at:

Hey guys, I've made videos to help newcomers get into UMK:3 TE and help players in general learn more about the game who are fairly new. There's a lot of depth behind UMK:3TE that a lot of players who do not play it will be oblivious to and I think it's great to help everyone in that regard. I just have three short simple videos now on some of the very core basics but will expand onto other areas as I have more time. I know the UMK:3 system can be very frustrating to get into and discouraging if you're a new player playing against players who are seasoned veterans and are familiar with the game's engine. Stick to the game, learn, practice, and rack up as much as experience as you can because UMK:3 TE is one of the most fun and enjoyable MK games to play at a high level! Hope you guys enjoy as there will be more videos to come that will add onto the series. Click to read more!...

Since Season 2 of the Saturday Subscriber Showdowns commenced, ThisIsSPADAAA has been one of the most consistent top placers in each bracket. His hunger to dominate only grew with each step he took towards victory. Last Saturday, his vision has come to pass. The Glacius community dances in joy as Spada finally wins his first Subscriber Showdown against MoldyButt Plz's Thunder, who has proven to be a deadly contender against all who fought him. Congratulations to Spada! Click to read more!...

I suspect that the Harley Quinn character community will be overjoyed to see that the SH Figuarts website has officially listed action figures modeled after their character for pre-order! Her design is that of how she appears in Injustice: Gods Among Us, complete with guns. Currently seven preview images are available for you to relish in, before their scheduled debut in May 2015!

Today has been an unfortunate traffic day for some people. Among them is one of our beloved FGC brethren.

Moments ago, @Perfect Legend received word that @FCP/EMP SCAR, one of a handful of players responsible for bringing recognition to the Skarlet character community in Mortal Kombat 9, is currently recovering in the hospital. Fortunately, none of his injuries appear to be fatal, but he has suffered an injured wrist and it is possible that his abdomen and head did not escape the damage either. Doctors are currently examining him to learn if he has suffered internal injuries.

We ask you to keep Scar in your thoughts while Click to read more!...

With dwindling numbers when prereg first came around into nearing the only 60 cap it appears there has been quite a push and thanks to everyone we have neared our second cap, per @BigE on facebook it looks like he may raise it again at the door if we hit the 128 mark.

Great job everyone and I for one am overly hyped for this event, we haven't seen these numbers in awhile so cheers up for large pools, beautiful women, and a bar just outside the lobby!

Mortal Kombat 9 ended Prereg with a whopping 64!

Killer Instinct ended at 48!

Yep, we're a little late on the Thanksgiving wagon, however, we sincerely hope you all had a safe and joyful time with your friends and family.

As of yesterday evening, the Iron Galaxy team has imparted some Thanksgiving cheer to the players. For until December 8th, all Victory Bonuses for any matches you win, be it ranked or exhibition, will be multiplied ten-fold to five-hundred XP! The bonuses for Average Combo Damage and Breaker Ratio have also been tripled. In essence, it will be easier for you to level up your player card, although your online rank will receive no such bonus (this is assumed due to no mention of the ranking system). This should also help you to unlock Fight Titles at a faster rate.

Again, this is to last until December 8th, after which Click to read more!...
