The New York crew has been hard at work with getting Mortal Kombat revived lately, especially since the fall of Valley Stream Monsters aka "VSM". VSM started a lot of things and many famous FGC faces including CD Jr, Maxter and REO came from there. But since VSM has been essentially dead for some time a few kombatants have been reluctant to give up on trying to find a new home.
REO says thanks to Rapzilla for his hard work and dedication for finding a place in the Long Island Click to read more![...]
After all this talk about how there are all there are not many majors on the West Coast, and how no one out East promotes their events, we now have arguably the biggest WC event outside of EVO coming up in SCR.. And there's barely a peep of hype about it. I have personally had multiple players blow me up in the past up for supposedly not supporting the West Coast.. And with SCR I've been putting my neck out there and really vouching for the WC scene. But I feel like I'm now yelling in a vaccuum.
So what is going on out there? There was far more talk on the forums and hype for even smaller events like DTN and APEX than there is for SCR. I started a thread on SCR Pre-Reg and it reached two pages and died. DevilMaySpy started a thread about low pre-reg and it's barely squeaking into 3 pages, with Valle coming in and having to Kickstart the discussion again. Both of us live in the East and we're trying to help out.. But there's a collective giant silence coming from SoCal,...
We were all sad that Injustice: Gods Among Us didn't get two more DLC characters to fill those two squares of emptiness, but I suppose you gotta end it somewhere, right? As if the original cast for Injustice didn't offer enough variety in the DC Universe as it was - when it came to DLC you really entered in to fan-boy mode. From the well-known to the obscure, (before the first four leaked) Injustice offers Superman to Killer Frost, Solomon Grundy and Hawkgirl (yours may differ)... Injustice: Gods Among Us is a DC fans' dream fighting game.
This week on KTP we are joined by the mustache laden warrior @Mr Aquaman to discuss the Defend the North tournament and his top 8 placing. We get in depth on the god of war and talk about his viability in tournament. We also tackle the Aquaman trident rush debate as well as some classic MK9 talk covering his character Rain. Plus a different spin on the match prediction game that involves wild animals. Lots of game talk on this one! Enjoy episode 37 of the Kombat Tomb Podcast. Click to see more![...]

The 3rd Weekly Scraps featured eight entrants for Injustice: Gods Among Us and nine for Killer Instinct. Pig Of The Hut would be looking to keep the youngsters in line with a repeat victory. Some highlights of the night include Saltface debuting his Lobo against Xenomorph, Home Lee vs Tyler Lantern, and Saltface vs Cyusstrike. top 3 was settled with Pig of the Hut and Xenomorph in winners finals and Cyusstrike waiting in losers finals. In Winners finals Pig's Zatanna would see its debut but scumbag Pig would switch to Zod after 4 matches to send Xeno to losers for the Emperors. Xenomorph would defeat Cyusstrike in losers finals after a grueling series of matches. In grand finals, Pig Of The Hut defeated Xenomorph once more to please his master Emperor of Outworld.

After a short hiatus, Capitol Fight District is back in action keeping our NorCal FGC alive! America's favorite "emo haired cum dumpster" came AND took a dump on the rest of us this event. Obviously it wasn't THAT bad, but it just sounds too funny not to write. But seriously, good stuff from Ducky! Having just flown back from the east coast where he earned 3rd at NEC, this Duck definitely has some cross-hairs on him, and 8-bit pixelated taunting dogs waiting to go retrieve his corpse, so he will be training hard with the rest of NorCal for SCR, where we will solidify our place as a powerhouse in the Injustice scene!

Update: Blazblue 47 Injustice 41. Come on guys. We had 130+ at NEC and can't even get 60 preregged for SCR? We always blow up Tri State area for low Injustice numbers, but they represented when it really mattered. West Coast, show you can do the same. Whether it's 30 or 300, I will do my best to support this community at every opportunity.
