In the absence of our forum general and resident FGC journalist @RM Blake who is away in battle, I am honored to present Saturday's recap. He's set the standard for these to be very high quality and very fast! So let's begin!

Both Scorpion and Sub-Zero from the Super Zeros are at it again and this time they're taking it to Thanksgiving! The Super Zeros are most famous for their flash mob videos where they take to the streets of New York and dance. However, Scorpion also has another hobby where he likes to cook, or attempt to cook.

Playtime for kitty!

With Bane away the cat can play! This has been the theme of season 6 so far and this week was no exception. I started off the night defeating Hruza Da Bruza before taking on Max in winners round 2. Max started off with Black Adam but was soundly beaten 2-0. Down but not out Max went to Bane and pulled off a successful snipe to move on to winners finals while Selina was left to fend for herself in the losers bracket. Her first challenge was herself, with N1k0lass trying the mirror. Similar to our first encounter months back it was extremely close, going down to the last game. The end came not with a whip or claws but the Wayne Manor motorcycle and has to be seen to be believed. Defeating Saucy Jack and Twisted set up a grand finals with Max. Determined to prove he could defeat the cat without venom Max tried Black Adam again. Unlike earlier this...

Today, we take some steps back to the original Mortal Kombat. @ded has put together an awesome combo video FAQ and it starts with some of the gripe the game got when it initially debuted back in 1992. This combo FAQ is based off of revision 5.0 of the 1992 classic and shows what some true O.G.'s can do. Click to read more!...

Just when you begin to think that this weekend cannot get more exciting than it already has, two teams from the Killer Instinct community come forward to prove you wrong! Set to occur either Friday or Saturday, Ruthless Mayhem's warriors will face a crew known as Team Impulse, whose members have already established a noticeable presence in the FGC ever since their sojourn to @RapZiLLa54's Birthright tournament last month. While this is technically RM's first war in Killer Instinct, they are no stranger to pooling their efforts together so as to ensure the downfall of their enemies. In this post, you'll be treated to an inside look at both teams as a preview to some competitive hype! Click to read more!...

Montreal Mayhem #17

Season II


"This is super stiff but also very loose!" - Complaints of the T.Roll

This week's Montreal Mayhem wasn't the best week we've ever had. We were missing MANY people and almost didn't run tournaments this week but, it was decided to do it anyways because, why not, consistency. I will say however that this week was not Raw, Smackdown, Main Event... It wasn't even Sunday Night Heat! It was... At best... Velocity! Click to read more!...

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!
