We've been waiting for Mortal Kombat X story details for some time now and those details have finally come! This new Mortal Kombat X trailer also features many character reveals, however, who is confirmed playable is yet to be announced.

Without further ado...

If you guys missed 4th Kombat Kast stream dealing with Brutalities, the stream has been uploaded to YouTube.

In this Kombat Kast episode, NetherRealm Studios showed off some variations to characters that have been known since E3 including Cassie Cage. Brutalities start at 17:50!

It's almost that time, TYM community! Ever since the release of NRS's audio teaser where the word "BRUTALITY" echoed in our ears with such a loving caress, you'd undoubtedly been dying to see them in action. In under a half-hour, NRS will put that wait to an end. Make sure you head to http://www.twitch.tv/netherrealm right now so that you don't miss out on the hype!

For those who may have missed the teaser for Brutalities, here it is again...

About an hour ago the official Mortal Kombat Facebook page updated with another sound bit teasing the new version of "Brutality" in which we will be bearing witness to tomorrow. NetherRealm Studios are set to go live with their stream tomorrow at 3PM CST and " it is going to be BRUTAL".

- thanks to @MITDJT and @AoK Ryan for the notice.

Given Evolution's reputation as the annual championship event for the FGC, it probably comes as no surprise to you when you hear about the update from Mr. Wizard. He has confirmed that Three-Day Passes for EVO 2015 are now out of stock. Unless they are somehow restocked, this means that you cannot view the finals in the closest possible proximity in the venue's Tournament Hall. However...

Before anything else, I want to apologize for the unexpected delay in this announcement. It is not clear as to what went wrong in the channels of communication, but in an effort to correct the lack of coverage that has occurred, I have stepped forward.

I also want to note that, of all the tournament write-ups I have done, this one is going to be the most...unique...to myself. Particularly because, for once in my tournament streak I write this post after placing up there in the Top 3 alongside these amazing players who have demonstrated to the community that one's love for a game can go an amazing distance, and I am now the editor sharing the results. There won't be any third-person style of writing here, as I want to capture the Top 8 experience from both my point of view and everyone else's to the best of my ability.

More apologies go out

NetherRealm Studios have uploaded another exciting video and this time it's basically about character loyalty. In this case we're looking at @GGA 16 Bit and his loyalty to Princess Kitana.

16 Bit mentions his work with NetherRealm Studios over the years doing testing and why

The day and time we've been waiting for has been revealed! This Thursday at 3PM CST on NetherRealm's stream we may just see something completely new to Mortal Kombat X. Brutalities have been in deep discussion on the forums ever since they were first spotted on the Faction War menus from the "Next Trailer".

So this and who knows what else we'll see! Where will you

Just like what was shown on the last Kombat Kast here are Kitana's official variation descriptions as published on the official Mortal Kombat facebook page. Depending on your play-style picking the right variation will mean everything in Mortal Kombat X.

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.

Example:

Stryker MKT Brutality
HP,HP,HP,BL,LP,HP,HP,HP,BL,LP,HP or
2, 2, 2, BL, 1, 2, 2, 2, BL, 1, 2

Nightwolf MKT Brutality

Kotal-Kahn-Statue-by-Pop-Culture-Shock.jpg
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...
