The one Johnny Cage player who doesn't down play him joins us to discuss the last couple of weeks. So while you wait to find out if your main has been bodied by lord Paulo later on tonight :D Sit back and enjoy the show.

Topics:

Start - Mantis intro and Johnny / Stunt Double discussion.
12:30 - Leather Face and Bo Rai Cho kombat kasts.
31:30 - Beta changes exposing a lot of general poor knowledge.
49:30 - Bad variations that haven't been successful, but are they being played correctly in the first place?
1:04:00 - Will we perceive the KP2 characters to be better than they actually are because they're DLC.
1:10:00 - Is it too late for an almost game reset style patch going by the beta changes?

Alien was introduced to the MKX World, and it was quite satisfying. Her variations, Konjurer, Acidic & Tarkatan were shown off as well. So what were you most excited to see on the stream today? How will @16 Bit do without his beard? How about the stage fatallities? If you missed the stream, @Aqueous_Echo has uploaded the entire stream for everyone to watch. Check it out below:

Hi guys!

THIS IS ONLY POSSIBLE BY MODDING THE PC VERSION:

WARNING: BARAKA IS THE WORST THING EVER


Mustard runs over Baraka when you use the NPC playable character mod. Now he lacks a ton of stuff, obviously as he isn't playable, but Baraka is so bad it's just hilarious. A Mid hitting D4, no combo potential midscreen, all his old overheads are mids etc.

Have fun! Check it out below:

One week from now, next Tuesday (Friday for Kombatants in Europe), Mortal Kombat XL & the Kombat Pack 2 will finally be available for PS4 & Xbox One players. While we posted this info back when the KP2 reveal was made, it might have gotten lost in the shuffle, so I figured it would be good to put this information out again to all players as we hit the home stretch to release. Check out the options:

Mortal Kombat XL - If you don't own MKX yet, or just want to re-buy it for the coverart, etc, this is for you. This can be purchased either digitally via Playstation Network or Xbox Live, or a physical disc version from any retailer who sells video games.

XL Pack - If you own just vanilla MKX, this has Kombat Pack's 1 & 2 together for $25.

Kombat Pack 2 - If you own MKX & Kombat Pack 1, then you need to buy this for $20.

Big thanks to the following people: Jesse Baker, Ryan Otto, NS | Gilgamesh, DCB/NB | Eli the Curry, Zubastian, BxA | EMPR Eevee, BxA | Jackal, Mod, Actionhank, The Arkayne, Steel, Squall, neon geon, and anyone else who helped out at the event. Forgive me for not remembering your name!

SFV turnout was greater than expected! Improvements will be made to the setup and registration process from now on, so that we will always start on time or only slightly after. One big change will be roll call for tournament entrants, so make sure you stay in the tournament area to hear your name called! Or, check the Challonge brackets to ensure you are properly entered.

Hey guys!

THIS IS ONLY AVAILABLE THROUGH MODDING THE PC VERSION!!

A lot of people asked me to run over the NPC playable version of Sindel, so here it is!

She definitely isn't as fun to play as Rain, she has her own moveset and strings as normal, but her damage is pretty awful and her juggles don't actually give her much.

Hilariously broken zoning (you'll see what I mean) and something really special at the end of the video. Enjoy!

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:
