Tonight has witnessed the rise of Level Up's Online Warrior Championships for the Killer Instinct community, courtesy of Alex Valle! For the debut event, twenty-four titans have responded to the call for battle. If you thought that the hype for online tournaments could not possibly match those of an offline event...you were just proven wrong. The bracket was gradually minimized until a stacked Top 8 remained, from which only one champion could emerge victorious...and tonight, that champion is the EVO 2014 champion, TheSteamCo CD Jr!

Ed Boon has recently tweeted a picture of a motion capture fatality. Whoever it is, they seem to have telekeneis. This pretty much leaves Ermac and Kenshi. The stance, and the holding his hand to his head(which Kenshi does very often in special attacks) seems extremely similar to Kenshi.
Is this Kenshi? Is this a descendant of Kenshi? Is this somehow Sektor? You decide. Click to read more![...]
Soon we will see a fight between two icons from two very different games. The Hellspawn, Scorpion will be taking on the Japanese master, Ryu. ScrewAttack has put together two preview videos showcasing both of the characters histories and the chance they may have against their opponent.

When I first met Shock online back in (I believe) 2010 I could tell he was for real in regards to what he did... he ran tournaments. At the time Mortal Kombat tournaments did not exist in the mainstream and there was no Mortal Kombat 9. However, at the end of that tunnel it was never completely dark.

I realized this when I went to my first Mortal Kombat tournament in 2010, which was East Coast Throwdown II Click to read more![...]
Last night, Ultra Arcade dedicated their next Killer Instinct tournament to the memory of Terrance "PushaTee88" Moore who passed from this world last Thursday. His hype lives on through the energy brought about by the competitors who gathered at San Antonio. This tournament would see the rise of the ice alien and spider woman despite the sudden influx in Maya players.
