Test Your Might

Home of competitive Mortal Kombat & Injustice: Gods Among Us - gathering players from all parts of the world.

We recently learned that there has been a kollaborative effort between NetherRealm Studios and MKKollective.com artist fear-sAs in regards to the "Kold War" Scorpion skin that will be available in Mortal Kombat X. Our good friends over at @MKServer sent us a YouTube link to the artist's channel. fear-sAs recently uploaded a speed-run of the Kold War Scorpion skin.

This skin is surely going to be a favorite for many Scorpion players. On top of that
I expect it to just cover the Kombat Pack more than likely. Hopefully a couple reveals of Shinnok or Kenshi...better yet, both.
King of the Bill, presented by That Game Store. Featuring Mr. Aquaman, Decay, Forever King, and Honeybee.

Hello guys, I'm glad to announce a new podcast/hangout session, King of The Bill.
We came up with the idea after playing in king of the hill for a long time and getting great responses from the stream chat. What better way to talk and bring up a broad range of topics from "Kill/bang/marry" to "top 5 mustache gods in FGC"?

Let's be real, every scene has somebody, that one person that just reigning champion of all things salt. Not necessarily in a serious way but it's a staple job that every scene must have filled nonetheless.

What I am asking is, who is the saltiest Saltmaster in your local group of players, what are they saltiest about and what is their salty catchphrase?

I'll start:

UK: (Unanimous) @PND_Ketchup

Salty catchphrase: "I don't feel like
I don't think it's been posted yet, so here it goes

When a game is said to have gone "Gold" it means that it is officially ready to ship. Ed Boon has recently changed his twitter avatar to a Gold Mortal Kombat X logo. So, without hearing any official reports yet, we're throwing it out there that the likelihood of Mortal Kombat X officially going "Gold" is very likely.

Less than one month till release! Who's NEXT? Screw that - who's HYPE?
At a small promotional event in London last week, representatives from NRS were on hand to demo a more current playable build of the game. A tournament was also held, which our old friend PND Ketchup ultimately won. TYM's @Phosferrax attended the event and was able to spend some quality time with MKX's Kano -- the following are some of his thoughts and recollections regarding two of Kano's three variations:
Yesterday, discussion erupted regarding the topic of possibly banning those who tested Mortal Kombat X for NetherRealm Studios. While some believed that the testers should be banned or at least wait it out when Mortal Kombat X first drops because of their testing advantage, others wanted to let it rock.

Needless to say, the topic quickly reached close to 300 replies already. Well, last night Toryuken tournament organizer @NeoRussell made a tournament thread for Toryuken: Stronghold, which will take place about one month

Also is this maybe the "little surprise"? Tomorrow we will find out!
With the release of Mortal Kombat X closing in with less than a month to go it appears there are more announcements on the way. What makes these announcements that much more intriguing is that per Lead Designer, John Edwards, these announcements are geared towards the competitive community [so, that would be us, for example].

John also discusses the difficulty of balancing the character variations, which if you didn't know already
New gameplay screenshots of Erron Black, Jax, Goro, Shinnok and Baraka have surfaced on XboxAchievements.com. It is hard to tell if Baraka will actually be a playable character or not but from the looks of it... he will be.

Screenshots include Erron Black using his pistols, Shinnok jumping (possibly off of interableable),
**That title though** lol

Saturday March 14, 2015 was a night to remember in Jamaica. Esports is on the rise in our small country and this was the night to prove what you were worth.Injustice was one of the games featured on this night and it had a 6 man double elimination tournament.
Hey guys, I was messing around my Xbox One and just noticed MKX has its game hub, where you can see all of the achievements, I'll try to see if I can find it online!

It also confirms the game is 34,04 GB!

EDIT2: This list is now updated to include the official names and descriptions for every of the 60 achievements. Enjoy!
In the April 2015 issue of GameInformer, they have pages 60 and 61 dedicated to MKX. While both of these pages are covered with in game stills, they do have a few paragraphs mostly touching on new additions to the Mortal Kombat series - new characters, interactables, variations, etc. Along with these new additions, they also touched on character scaling.

Snippet from paragraph 3:
One of the new fighters, Ferra/Torr, showcases the new character scaling being introduced. "You'll notice in previous Mortal Kombats, there hasn't really been a difference in scale in character size," says designer Derek Kirtzic. "it's not until we started doing Injustice that we started bringing in large-scale characters like Bane and Doomsday. With MK, we wanted to start bringing in some of that as well. So you'll notice that Goro is very large in comparison to normal characters, and Ferra/Torr is pretty large in scale."

Since they are specifically bringing up character scaling, it is obvious Jason...
