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.

What is UMK:3 TE? UMK:3 TE (Tournament Edition) is a hacked version of UMK:3 specifically made to make the game more balanced and competitive by an anonymous hacker for the MK community. Think similar of Project M" from the smash community. For some competitive MK fans this is a dream come true. An MK game where every single character is completely viable? Yes, please.
We played for about an hour and tried to show case as many of the new character changes and general gameplay differences as we could. Keep in mind this was online so we apologize if we were sloppy in some areas. Click to watch videos![...]
