So back in October of this past year (2015), someone went digging into the code for MK1, MK2, and MK3 and found out that the rumored secret Ed Boon menus actually do exist and are somewhat easily accessible. By pressing the Player 1 and Player 2 'Block' buttons in a particular sequence, you can access each game's secret Ed Boon (EJB) menu. Here are the details regarding how to accomplish the menu access and what each game's individual button combos are. Check them out below:

During today's Kombat Kast: Drunken Master, NRS announced a new skin that will help benefit the grassroots tournament scene: Krimson Ermac! In the vein of the Gold Scorpion & Blue Steel Sub-Zero, the skin is the Ermac version, which you'll see in the video below. But just like the Blue Steel Sub, the price of this skin is just $1.99 and all proceeds will go to help fund prize pots. The skin will be available on March 1st, so make sure you buy it & support the tourney scene!! Check out the video below with Krimson Ermac in action!!

Hey all, its Jay aka BanTheTesters here back again on the page to give you all new thrills and chills about everything that is MK. As the release of MKXL and the Kombat Pack 2 rolls ahead I figured I would write a bit about some of the characters from the Kombat Packs that we may not know all that well or possibly just have little to no knowledge about and shine some light on their backgrounds and character influences while diving a bit into their backstories. Today we are looking at Bo Rai Cho who is coming to us in just over a week, so hold your breath, drink up, and let’s dive in shell we?​

Overload of mk the past few days! Very enjoyable. This went better than I ever expected to. Those who didn't come missed out on a great time!

It was my first off-line tournament. I played better than I thought I would, and I thought for myself I did really well. It was awesome to put faces to names, and get to finally play off-line after three years of only being able to play online.

HUGE thanks to @McLOV1NS for opening his house to us not only Friday night for casuals, but Saturday night after the tournament as well. Very very thankful for this dude.

Congrats to @NoDoubt ! All the way through the winners bracket. Also congrats to @Juggs and sp1c unit.

Hey guys!

So Rain and the other NPC's have been modded into the PC version of MKX, an interesting little project that lets us see what stuff the non playable characters have to offer.

Just for a bit of fun, I decided to go into training mode and really see what Rain consists of. He obviously isn't a fully finished character and he's missing certain aspects you'd

Hey guys! I really wanted to get this video out a few weeks ago but haven't been able to edit the footage together until tonight.

While Mustard and I were in America for the ESL MKX Season 2 Finals, we recorded a ton of videos while we were out and about. We recorded all sorts, but the main idea was to give everyone a much more personal side of what happens when we go to tournaments.

Thanks to everybody involved in the second season. Players and production alike! You were all a fantastic set of people from start to finish. It's about 27 minutes long, so give it a watch if you have time! Thanks :)

If you watched the Kombat Kast today, then you'll know that they discussed the latency settings for the online. The EO Beta currently is set to 3 frames of static input delay. For reference, the FightCade client defaults latency to 1 frame. This explains why EO so smoothly despite using rollback. When the EO update launches, NRS has stated that there will be a setting to add the 3 frames of delay to offline play, so that the online latency remains throughout the normal game.

What are your thoughts on this?

Personally, I think it'll get annoying to know that the static delay exists with no way to alter it (unless they do actually implement that). Don't get me wrong, while I notice the delay at times, it isn't an unbearable amount of latency. I played offline for a good while, then switched to online, and the difference was fairly negligible for me, personally. But I would definitely like to see an option to set your smoothing manually.

The largest fighting game tournament in the world is getting even bigger this year thanks to their finals venue. Mandalay Bay’s massive arena is capable of holding up to 12,000 spectators, giving players who find themselves vying for an Evo 2016 championship a ridiculous amount of attention. Should you want to be a part of history, tickets are now available! The organizers were made aware of a few unforeseen fees that have drive prices higher, so they decided to drop the prices of the regular two day pass for the first week. Players can sign up for $20 plus an additional $10 for each game they plan to compete in until next Thursday, February 25.

As was previously reported, Evo 2016’s finals at Mandalay Bay’s Event Center will be separate from the rest of the event, meaning you won’t need a two-day pass to buy an arena ticket and vice versa. Evo 2016 is scheduled for July 15-17 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Street Fighter V, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Mortal Kombat X, Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR, and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 will close out the event at Mandalay Bay, with tournaments for Pokkén Tournament, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, Killer Instinct, and Tekken 7 Fated Retribution planned for earlier in the weekend.

Registration is now open on Evo’s official website, and Mandalay Bay arena tickets can be purchased through AXS.

Today, the Kombat Kast: Drunken Master episode took place & we got our first look at the 3D Mortal Kombat mainstay, Bo 'Rai Cho. The netcode/BETA was discussed, as we learned that NRS has been working on the netcode overhaul since shortly after MKX dropped last April. Also, NRS announced that a new skin for Ermac called "Krimson Ermac", which is an Ermac version of the Gold Scorpion & Steel Blue Sub-Zero. Like the Steel Blue skin, the "Krimson Ermac" will be available on March 1st for $1.99, and proceeds will go to help provide prize pot bonuses at future grassroots tourneys. So make sure you buy the skin regardless to support the offline MKX scene! Check out the Krimson Ermac Trailer here: http://testyourmight.com/threads/crimson-ermac-reveal-trailer.58765/

Back to Bo 'Rai Cho. His 3 variations are Dragon Blood, Drunken Master & Bartitsu. Check them out in the video link below:

Considering there are hundreds and sometimes thousands of competitors that will register for a single fighting game and it always comes down to the golden 8 (8 players to showcase their talent on stream), if you're one of these players that don't make it, you may wonder why? Achieving such results cannot be easy and it is never guaranteed. Every single players came to give their best and they want to be # 1. So, how do I get Top 8? Why do I never get Top 8? Well, may this video give you some insight on the things you may be doing right and the things you may be doing wrong.

Gootecks and Mike Ross, who are well-known in the Street Fighter world, made an awesome video. In this video

Over the past few weeks, Australia has had two tournaments. One that occurred late January which was the Sydney monthly tournament YSB and the other was the online tournament hosted by Googie. The online tournament is run on PS4, and is free to enter for all Australian and New Zealand residents. Run in a single elimination fashion (with top 3 getting cash payouts), all prize money comes for generous Australian community members who contribute their own cash in order to further the MKX scene here in Aus. Matches are run best of 3 up until top 8 which is run best of 5. Members who place top 8 receive seeding points for further iterations of the tournament. The tournament results as well as the footage is posted below:

So, we're all here in on this website together discussing the games, having fun and all is usually well and good. Well, sometimes Real Life issues come about and sometimes they're more serious than others. What I am getting at is no joke and a member of our community needs our help.

Yesterday in Columbus, Ohio there was a terrible incident where a man welding a machete attacked multiple people in a restaurant. While no one was killed, there were multiple injuries including some critical injuries. You can read about the incident more here: "Man Who Allegedly Attacked Ohio Restaurant With Machete Was Known to FBI, Sources Say".

@Tim Static and his family rely on this restaurant for a large portion of their income. Unfortunately, this restaurant is closed during this investigation. Tim's wife, who is employed at the restaurant, was inside when this incident occurred, which makes this whole thing that much more traumatizing. Tim's words:

Earlier this week i teased a new I app my team and I created called MKX Notes. Glad to say we are submitting to the app store tomorrow and it will be available as soon as apple approves it! Right now it's iOS only, mainly because core functionality of this app was already made in a previous app for iOs and it was easy for us to port those features over here to this. TE is done on the iOS side but the Android side is still in production (and is the main reason TE isn't being released this month unfortunately)

(Update) Android version SHOULD be out by WBX hopefully. Please check out the video below! BTW is 100% FREE.

In case you missed the Kombat Kast from earlier today, NetherRealm Showed off Leatherface. We knew from a slight ESL/CW leak that Leatherface had a "Killer" variation and today we learned that his other two variations were "Butcher" and "Pretty Lady" (Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2). Additionally, it took no time as all for this footage to be uploaded by various YouTubers so, below you'll find multiple videos
