It's a little early for Mortal Kombat X combo videos, right? Wrong! YouTube user Nik MkDota has uploaded an awesome combo video for Scorpion that showcases combos from multiple times where the game was on display. Featuring what looks to be footage from multiple Expo's that includes the varying dialogue. When the news is lacking for what we want the most, this is the perfect filler! Click to view!...

Hey, everyone. I know I haven't been as active in the community as much as some of you want me to. But I have some great news and it's directly related to last Friday when you guys saw me stream MK9 for the first time. With MK10 being just around the corner, I'm getting back into the swing of all things fighting game related. With help from a friend, I now have a better functioning stream. I'll be mainly streaming Injustice and MK9. And of course, UMK:3 TE when ever I can. Now I know some of you are probably thinking "REO streaming and playing Injustice in 2014, what?". Yep, it's happening. I'm gonna try and dive into Injustice and MK9 again and give them a better shot than I did before. Meaning, Click to read more!...

Coming hot off of the London Comic-Con, ENDeverMORE had some time to dive deep in to Quan Chi. Below are his notes and impressions from playing him in his different variations. While, we cannot take these notes too literal as the game is in early development it's still nice to know what Quan Chi currently plays like. Click to read more!...

The tenth anniversary of Top of the Food Chain!

Southern Virginia's absolute finest assembled among the Venue known as The Refuge for our bimonthly beatdown known as top of the food chain. 3 defending champions, an ares player, a newly acquired EMPR, a random flash, and the rest of the VA hollywood Warriors style street gang thugged it out. Tournament begins with our famed DS player SrryIentered against Sidtherunningmanstacehaze. The cerebral assassin deathstroke, bodied by Black Manta in flashpoint paradox looking across from the fastest man on the planet. 2 rounds open up with a trait combo and srry hits the mic stating 1 option is not the way to play the game. Sid wins 3-0 and runs further into winners. Mr Aquaman takes on newcomer dark kai and does some broken ass resets involving missiles, godsmacks, and quick stands. Ares proclaimed broken on virginia sands. Next we have possibly the hypest match in top of the food chain's history involving Harley Quinn. TYM's very own Awkward Sloth a combo a way from elemonading defending champion Zappa. In a tight 3-2 set that could have gone either way Zappa scum bags and frauds his way to winners Click to read more!...

I was luckily able to get a few games in at Comic Con in London, here are my findings/observations with the current build:
  • Raiden has a quick low which strings to a launcher as I accidentally found by mashing.
  • Raiden's displacer variation is the only one to have a teleport and the input for the teleport was down,up. I believe that he doesn't have a first hit overhead move though,he does have a string where it hits overhead 2nd. I believe that Thunder God has that string where he's put on the other side through a teleport but not as an independent teleport move.
  • D'Vorah is a footsy monster with incredible range.
  • Kotal Kahn's risk-reward style move where he cuts himself gives him a huge damage boost(up there with that of level 3 Bane). I was uppercuted straight after he did this for a good 17-22%.
  • Raiden has lots of multi-hitting strings, his movelist was full of inputs like 1122,213 and other 3/4 hit strings(this was checked in Thunder God variation).
  • Sub zero has a strong knockdown game after a slide hits,the WB representative was stuffing all my wakeups-even teleport.
  • As deduced from the point above: wakeups

For truth and justice!

With Hanukkah just around the corner Saucy Jack decided to fully embrace his Jewish heritage and entered GBS as The Jew of Steel this week. This appeared to be a poor choice at the start of the night, as he was promptly sent to losers by Jeremiah's Doomsday off stream. Fighting off Rational Jim's atheist propaganda The Jew of Steel took inspiration from the classic 90's epic "The Death and Return of Superman" storyline and came back from his death at Doomie's hands more energized and powerful than ever. With one powerful Superman punch he blasted through the beginning of the losers bracket with quick 3-0 wins against McCutty, Hruza and Jim before earning a rematch with Jeremiah's ultimate Kryptonian weapon. The stage was set for a rematch from last week's encounter with Max, himself sent to losers by my Catwoman. It was an intense Click to read more!...

Killer Instinct Season 2 has arrested so much attention around the FGC, it's become impossible to dismiss. Since production for the game fell into Iron Galaxy's hands, they have not been afraid to test the waters, pushing the levels of combat to extremes that symbolize its truest nature as a fighting game. Recently, Adam "Keits" Heart from the IG team sat down with Paul "SuperFX" Dziuba for an interview regarding the company's visions for the future of the game. You can check out an excerpt from the interview here and then proceed to SRK's page to continue reading. Click to read more!...

So who is this mysterious Shirai Ryu member? We know that the clan was wiped out. So could he just be another inevitable death in the MKX comic that has said to have deaths every few pages. Or does he have even the slightest possibly of being playable in the upcoming game?

Montreal Mayhem #11

Season II


After two weeks off, Montreal Mayhem returns with the start of Season 2. The turn out was good, not as good as MM #10 but that was to be expected. The break definitely had an effect on us, not just in game but, even running the tournament was slower then usual. However this is to be expected as we will need some time to get this train running as smoothly as it was week ago. Click to read more!...

UPDATE (10/22/14 @ 7:00PM EST): It is confirmed that this will indeed be a live action web series based off of Mortal Kombat X. Source: GameInformer via @Zmoke

While the details are very unclear as to what this will be - news from the HollyWoodReporter indicates that there may be a Mortal Kombat X series (including an untitled Mortal Kombat series produced in partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment that is tied to the upcoming Mortal Kombat X video game)? We've known that a Mortal Kombat Legacy season 3 was in the works, but as for the trail it would follow was and still is unclear. The question is, will this reported series be a continuation from Mortal Kombat Legacy season 2 or will it tie directly in to the upcoming Mortal Kombat X game set for 2015? What would make more sense considering we also have a digital comic book series also Click to read more!...
