During this year's New York Comic-Con, which took place on October 6th - 9th there were some very interesting pieces on display. They included both Quan Chi and Kintaro statues by Pop Culture Shock collectibles. As would be expected by this retailer, these statues are complete with the utmost detail, but also come at a high price.

There are two videos below that showcase the statues in all of their glory.

This week at Glasgow Kombat showed a decent turnout with us managing to get 8 people to enter the bracket. Others were there for casuals which anyone who wants to turn up is more than welcome to come for of course (we have MK9/Injustice on one of the setups and another MKX setup!) :) We had Ricey returning after a few weeks of absence...playing a new variation too! Missing this week was Suleymon and rareqq once again unfortunately but also missing was Cassie of Scotland: Scott the Scot. In his honour not really I was playing Cassie this week! In similar fashion Nausea couldn't decide who he wanted to play this week as there's so many fun variations to play in this game and even pulled out his Demolition Sonya! Sadly the console still would not download the hotfix so run cancels were still iffy (which you might notice in some of the matches) but that didn't stop this week from being packed with excitement!

BAWLS Out Thursday this week at the Full Blast Arcade hosted a couple special guests tonight. @YOMI FOREVER KING and @DarkFire* were welcomed to the battlegrounds tonight, and squared off in a round robin tournament against the local heroes in attendance, including @THTB, PlayingToWin, @FOREVER KING JR, and @Kompetitor. After a set of exciting matches, Cleveland's own Forever King Jr nudged out a victory in the name of Full Blast, winning with a final record of 4-1. Forever King himself also had a 4-1 record, but due to losing to his younger brother in an amazing Kotal Kahn mirror match, took second place honors. Coming in third was PlayingToWin, with a 3-2 record. Congratulations to all that came out tonight!

Hey guys, Once Foxy returned to the UK, @PND_Mustard and I were able to catch up with him and discuss his recent tournament placing at Socal Regionals 2015. The following topics are covered:

What is Problem X Promotions?

The level of competition at SCR,

The potential differences between NA and International competition,

Being a Kung Lao Specialist and playing him exclusively,

Moving into ESL Season 2, who are the players to watch out for?

This was our first attempt at a player interview, so apologies if it's not as crisp as some of our other videos. We plan on trying to do this with every major tournament winner from now on! Thanks for watching :)

Hey guys! I recently managed to catch up with Greece's very own EG|Nivek to go over what's possible with the latest version of Raiden in Mortal Kombat X.

The video covers what changed about him in the recent balance patch, what has been adjusted and what appears to have been altered in terms of hitboxes and combo potential.

Enjoy!

Hello TYM. Our tournament format was single elimination. The game was on XBox One, there were lag issues here and there. The game was running on the Fatal 8 patch.

Anyway, here are the results:

Finals:

EGGL dingodile (Sub Zero Grandmaster) 3 - Aamir (Kenshi Balanced, Kotal Kahn War God, Sub Zero Grandmaster) 0

3rd place would be NashTheShaolinBoy (Liu Kang Dragon Fire, Jacqui Shotgun)

I'm hoping that future tournaments atleast have patches up to date, if not DLC, Shinnok and Goro. Can't possibly be too much to ask for.

Shoutout to @rubmytaco for all the strategy discussions over the past few months.

Cheerio and ciao.

Congratulations to @A F0xy Grampa, your 2015 SoCal Regionals Mortal Kombat X SUPREME CHAMPION!! Yesterday we were in for a treat of several great matches going down the road to top 8. Beginning with matches like A Foxy Grampa and ending with a controversial one like CRWoundCowboy vs BurgerKing, and we all know how that played out. But yesterday is the past, now back to the present. 15k viewers waiting around in the chat for Mortal Kombat top 8 while top 8 for another game kept being broadcasted! Impressive, although a few minutes later we went up to 25,000!!!

This week was by far the most surprising weekly in TGS MKX's history. For the first time we saw a winner outside of who we call the 5 gods of sova. YAMS, Gimpy, Zappa, Mr Aquaman, and Sidthehaze, all present, would not win That MK Weekly. This was also our largest tournament in over a month so great stuff to the scene for showing up and supporting the game. Keeping it short and simple this week.

Season 3 is moving along nicely at GBS. 2 weeks ago, N1k0lasss in especially extra frazzled hair, declared while looking down at his chicken soup, lamenting "My name should be changed to Freek0lasss." That next week he went on to win GBS, and he also won GBS last night! He is now fired up and excited to be going to SCR with GBS' other juggernauts, PPJ and Dizzy. We wish Dizzy, PPJ, and N1k0lasss luck at SCR this weekend!

After a week off due to most people being absent we got back to our usual bracket, with only some people being absent this week. We had Nausea returning from Red Fight District where he made top 16 so congratulations to him! Though we were only left with 6 and the console was missing the hotfix for some reason (which was messing up run cancels for a few of us, myself included) we got on with the bracket anyways and had some good matches :)

Man of the night definitely goes to Azarath who not only got his first top 3 but was playing out of his mind in a FT5 he had offscreen with Nausea's Raiden before the tournament started and was pulling off some of the most amazing conversions I've seen from a D'Vorah since @HoneyBee . Meanwhile I was off at InputErrorFest 2015 with my good friend ol' buddy ol' pal Mr PS4 Pad this week but once I get my converter (which should be within two weeks) I won't have to worry about that any more :D

It seems this week Nausea's relentless Deceptive pressure was too much for his opponents to handle but he didn't get there easily...Bigfool fought him twice and wasn't for letting him take him out without a fight, even pulling out a new variation in grand finals!

A full Euro Kombat without stream and disconnect issues??? Yes it has happened (except PSN going down lol). Emerging victorious (and defeating last months winner stosn) was IrishMantis, showing that Stunt Double might be as broke as A-List. Seriously though, Irish and stosn had some hype as fuck matches, don't miss them out. Shoutouts to @1man3letters for co-commentating with me, @JerQ_Q for providing stream saltiness/drama, wba4life1 (TYM name?) for making it to top three in their first tournament and @Wam-Zlay for being the ONLY OG EK contestant.​

Results:
1st place: @FireBreather / IrishMantis (Johnny Cage/Kano)
2nd place: @stosn (Jacqui/Cassie)
3rd place: wba4life1(Kotal Kahn/Shinnok)

4th place: Man0_GRC (Scorpion)
5th place tie: JerQ_Q (Tanya/Sonya/Quan Chi), wolfman0r (Erron Black/Kung Jin)
7th place tie: vladmag21 (Sub-Zero), WhitePacSoldier (Shinnok/Kano)
9th place tie: lDockl (DQ'd), Deakins (Sub-Zero), WamZlay (Reptile), phosferrax (DQ'd)
13th place tie: leonlior (DQ'd), Osagri (Jax), varttihullu (Reptile)

With a spectacular run through the Winners bracket, Blind Ducky further proves why he is one of NorCal's elite players. He was clearly the man to beat, as he lost only three matches the entire night. Two of those three defeats, came from Mister Nanj in their Winners Finals match, which is easily the best set in the archive. Congratulations to Ducky for an amazing performance and winning the Lion's Share of the pot and a Reptile Replica Movie Mask!​

On the back of Australia's nationals last month (OHN13), this week's turnout was strong with everyone eager to put on a show. Shoutouts to all of the first timers and to those who travelled long distances to make it to the tournament. A particularly impressive showing by Godspeed, who's only recently started attending Sydney locals but is proving to be one of the fastest learners in the community. Also big shoutouts to HaRami for taking 4th place after being overseas for over a month.

Hello people! Spanish MK community is not a big one, however, we want to change that. So, finally, I'm proud to announce the first MKX big event made by us: Iron Fighters tournament! 31th October & 1st of November (Finals). The MKX tournament shares place with 2 more, TTT2 and USF4. You can check the website: http://www.ironfighters.es/

Because the website is in spanish, I let here the relevant info:

Prizes: Today there's a 300€ pot for each tournament. We are still looking for more sponsors to increase that amount. Besides, all money from registrations (8€ each one) will go to prizes.

How to get here: If you are travelling from outside of Spain, contact us. You could travel to Madrid or Malaga, and we will get you here by car.
