Her three variations were also demo'd for all to see on the latest
Hey folks!

Some of you may remember, but last year @PND_Ketchup and I took part in Gameblast, a charity gaming marathon in which you are encouraged to set a target and raise money for Specialeffect, a fantastic gaming charity who's work simply must be seen to be believed, they specialise in helping out individuals who love gaming, but due to physical disabilities are unable to do so.

This year on 20/02/2015, we will be taking part once again, streaming for a full 24 hours and covering multiple games, but primarily Mortal Kombat 9. Our target this year is to raise £250, we're hoping we can smash it this year!

Please help us spread the word, and feel free to chuck us a donation in advance to help us kick things off when the day comes in February. :)

Here is a link for all information, and also where to donate: https://www.justgiving.com/KetchupMustardGB15

We will be streaming on: Twitch.tv/PNDKetchup

Hope to see some of you tuning in!

It's been a fantasy for many ever since it was originally imagined, but now apparently (or shall I say "reportedly") it's in the works. According to VideoGamer.com we will be getting a DLC pack for Mortal Kombat X in June that will contain the infamous Predator from the movie as well as Colonel Al Dillon.

To make things juicier, "According to our source, the DLC pack will include the sci-fi villain and Colonel Al Dillon, the CIA agent killed in the original movie. Carl Weathers, the actor who
This here is a interview with Todd McFarlane the creator of Spawn.
They talk about bringing Spawn back into the mainstream.

His answer of the question "Could we see Spawn in Injustice or Mortal Kombat?" is "We actually have a short deal with them so they maybe put him in there."
(at 4:00)

It looks like if NRS and WB wants to put Spawn in MKX they just can do it without a problem.
Its interesting if putting him in MKX is the so called "short deal".
Brutalities were the hardest finishers to perform, in the sense that they were over 10 buttons to hit in a specific order.

Evo Rules have just recently been updated across all games and it appears that MKX (as of right now) will be played on PS4.

Here is the link: http://evo.shoryuken.com/additional-rules/

Mortal Kombat X
  • Game version: PlayStation 4
  • Game Settings: Versus Mode, 2/3 Games, 99 Seconds
  • If the players do not agree on a stage within 15 seconds, the match will be random stage select.
If you missed out on the Scorpion statue in the MKX Kollector's Edition, then congratulations. A Kotal Kahn statue will be out soon by Pop Culture Shock Colliectibles. Pop Culture Shock Collectible's Mortal Kombat statues often sell out in one day when the pre-order goes live so if this statue is something you're eyeing up... you'd better stay tuned for updates.
I will personally be diving into Mortal Kombat X issue number 7 tonight as Kotal Kahn's story is unfolding more and more. As I've been reading throughout the Test Your Might forums it seems that his story has completely changed certain people's outlook on him as a character they're coming to really follow... and naturally play eventually.

Thanks to @MKServer the story synopsis for issues
Nothing was shown yet, but Mezco Toys announced at Comic-Con that they will be doing a new line of 6" Mortal Kombat X figures. We are told the figures will have around 17-20 points of articulation and we should get our first look at the line around Toy Fair time in February.

Take a look at some of their works...
Greetings TYM, I'm pleased to announce the debut of Her Majesty's Kouncil. As you can probably gather from the title this is just like any other NRS focused podcast but comes to you from across the pond.

We don't have a set in stone schedule yet as we wanted to get something out there in the run up for MKX but hopefully we can record weekly. Below are the youtube and mp3 downloads, be sure to comment and let us know what you think.
Earlier today on twitter the Mortal Kombat community received some news from Ed Boon that may or may not be bad to some; I think it was more able knowing and clarity. However, unlike Mortal Kombat 9 and Injustice: Gods Among Us it appears that Mortal Kombat X will not receive a demo prior to release. Check just below for the confirmation tweet.
As we await Mortal Kombat X perhaps the most sought-after characters are either "new" characters or returning characters that we haven't seen in years... specifically from Mortal Kombat 4. Mortal Kombat 4 introduced multiple characters to the franchise that many players fell in love with including Fujin, Reiko, Jerek, Tanya, Shinnok and more.

Well, to hopefully put a smile on your face, Shaun Himmerick did reply to a question asking if
How Mortal Kombat Turned My Life Around: A Thank You to the Community.

This is going to be very long. It's not something you need to read but it's something I need to say.

I didn’t get off to a great start in life. Despite coming from an upper middle class family it was a family with some very deep problems and I started a downward spiral around middle school. Something happened in my brain and I found myself unable to focus myself or socially interact like most people. I remember hating almost everyone, losing my ability to focus, and losing all sense of confidence in myself. When it started though there was no real “Oh shit, I need to snap out of this” moment in my brain and I never viewed this change as bad. I just thought “Well this is me”.​

Later in highschool I quit going, surrounded myself with people on the same track, and picked up a few habits. I spent the remainder of my teenage years sent away at “Fix my kid” programs and when I...​

The Common Wealth

Guys, this is the community I am from, and I want to see Mortal Kombats time to shine, thanks to That Game Store and our main sponsor to be showcased on the day of the event, we proudly offer a $4,000 pot bonus. We want to see the MK scene show up in full force and start the game off on the right foot. Also for added hype, we gladly announce that Englands own @A F0xy Grampa will be
Netherrealm Studios' Studio Head Shaun Himmerick has recently been answering a lot of the questions coming in on Twitter from other Twitter users and fans of the upcoming game Mortal Kombat X. Some of these questions, like the ones below, have been inquiries into which guest characters will be introduced in MKX. Although we know that the team at NRS can't reveal which characters will be in right now, they are able to tell us if some characters are out. With that being said, some people were curious to find out if the guest characters would be returning from a past MK or were characters from Netherrealm's 2013 DC Comics collaboration, the hit superhero fighting game, Injustice: Gods Among Us.
With Mortal Kombat X's release just two months away, one of TYM's beloved friends bids farewell to the previous installment in the series...with one last combo video for the Great Kung Lao.

After almost four years of his work, our enjoyment hasn't diminished for even a moment. In fact, with each video released by @ETC Mcfly, we're left with a greater thirst to see more.

Enjoy his last MK9 combo video, because you can best believe that it combines all aspects of his previous works with newfound concepts McFly has discovered even long after MK9's prime!
