If you'd like to see a good 20 more minutes of Mortal Kombat X gameplay then you'll love this video by Smosh Games. This YouTube channel, that consists of multiple people were able to get their hands on a build of Mortal Kombat X with Johnny Cage as a playable character. Through their matches, you get to see Ermac's second gruesome fatality and much more!

I received this special invitation today and I'm wondering who all received one as well and is going? I'm going to look into making plans for this early next week to see if I can make it. I wanted to thank whoever had the awesome idea to put this together because it's innovative and a great concept that has the ability to go viral which will bring a lot of hype for the event.

I am pleased to present to you, this month's Saturday Slugfest results. It's worth noting that this was the last slugfest to be hosted at GameClucks. Fortunately Mr. Anderson is scouting new venues, unfortunately this may slightly raise the venue fee. More to come as things progress.

MKX is around the corner, and the hype is consuming everyone. We still have quite some time until April 14th, and the wait is just fueling our thirst for information. In the meantime, since MKX is a new fighter, I want to discuss the processes players go through while learning a new fighting game. Not just any players, high level players in our community since I believe that a top player's perspective is incredibly valuable. Learning a new game of any kind can be daunting, and this is especially true for fighting games. A lot of players have expressed being overwhelmed by the amount of practice, memorization, and dedication it takes to even get into a new fighter. I feel one thing that can help is getting some insight into the steps high level players take when they first start learning a new fighting game.

One of the biggest questions that has been going around regarding MKX's online play, is if the game will be region locked or not. Well, according to Shaun Himmerick (aka "lover of tacos" on Twitter), Mortal Kombat X region locks will be "the same as Injustice and MK9":

From @STRYKIE

Okay first off, I'm pretty confident most people on the site are aware that region locking and netcode are not one in the same, nor is the region lock a direct consequence of the netcode. What is being stressed here is the suspicion that the region lock has been put into place to smokescreen potentially poor netcode, being aggravated even further with match-making over cross-continental distances. Which...

The much anticipated "kold war" Scorpion skin.
Apologies that I haven't found a better picture.

It's Friday! And with it, another one of NetherRealm Studios' semi-regular studiocasts. Having shown a good deal of the game's Versus mode in previous streams, the focus today was on the game's story mode, as Tyler Lansdown and Shaun Himmerick unveiled a sizable chunk of the game's 1st chapter.

In the game clip, we see Johnny Cage, Sonya, and Kenshi headed out to intercept an EarthRealm invasion, as a couple of unexpected visitors show up to crash the party and threaten the team.

It has now been confirmed through multiple media outlets that Mortal Kombat X for last gen consoles will be delayed until the Summer time. No official date has been set by Warner Bros, but the date of June 30th is floating around.

NetherRealm Studios is not developing the delayed version of the game - that would be High Voltage, which are also based out of Chicago. There are no delays for the next gen console versions of Mortal Kombat X as been confirmed by Warner Bros.

The folks over at DroidGamers have uploaded a beauty of a video showcasing Mortal Kombat X on Android devices. It shows multiple characters and their attacks, including the Blind Swordsman, Kenshi! As revealed and/or leaked before by IGN we know that one of his variations is called "Possessed". Wait till you see this... it appears to summon a Samurai warrior.

It's kind of hard to tell from this short

When we think DoctrineDark of Chile, we think of speed and execution. DoctrineDark, who is best known for his Kabal tech and combo videos in Mortal Kombat 9 has recently released a video for Rain. This video just recently came out and deals with the latest patch, so all of these combos actually work. And keep in mind... these combos are done on a 360 pad...

With Mortal Kombat X fast-approaching, we've been working on something special for our community: a medals system. How this system will work is it'll display your earned and/awarded medals under your name and information when you post on the forums (as seen below for an example).

I have pushed to have this system installed and working for an added incentive for our community. I think that it'll benefit the community in many ways and it's a great way to be able to show off your accomplishments. I should tell you that this awards system breaks out of the box a bit, meaning some of these medals will not be awarded to many... unless you think you can eliminate Perfect Legend or SonicFox5000 or Denzell (DJT) or KDZ from a major tournament?

Yeah, these medals are not just forum-based. There will be three categories: forum-based. community-based and tournament-based. I'm personally having the most fun with the tournament-based medals as I will reveal how to obtain these particular awards...

*Language NSFW* DashieXP has become a very well-known video creator who is known for manipulating Mortal Kombat characters in different videos and adding his voice to all characters. He puts the characters in many different un-Mortal Kombat-like situations, which is the point of the video and basically guarantees some laughter.

In his latest video, Baraka and Motaro square off in a rap battle that explodes like the tournaments we attend. However, it's not over until
