For those of you who didn't get to catch Kan-Ra's debut trailer and gameplay demonstration, do not fret...because, courtesy of Mr. Adam Isgreen from the Ultra Combo forums, the treats are right here for you to sink your teeth into! A nice prelude to your incoming Thanksgiving dinner next week, no?
For those wondering, Kan-Ra will be available to those of you who own the Ultra Edition package for Season 2 next Monday. The week after that, it will extend to those who own the Season 2 Combo Breaker package. Otherwise, you should be able to purchase him individually as a character for $5.00.

A lot of things didn't go too well this week. Troubles recording and general slowness cause Injustice to take MUCH longer then it normally does. Sadly causing MK to be skipped even though @IFEELYOURHATRED and @Wind Masta came out after a few weeks of absence to play. Luckily they got a lot of games in while waiting so it was hopefully not a waste. Click to read more![...]

After sharing some more Mortal Kombat X fight dialogue via twitter Ed Boon has asked what everyone would like to see next? The latest dialogue exchange Boon tweeted out was the words between Scorpion and Quan Chi (via this link). The awesome aspect of this dialogue is that it resembles the "clash" dialogue from Injustice: Gods Among Us, except it's before the match starts.
This is different from Mortal Kombat 9 as well because each fighter would always say the same thing, for example, Kung Lao says "For the Shaolin!" before every match. With Mortal Kombat X dialogue Click to read more![...]
The rest of the FGC may be hype for Smash Wii U but for the Chicago NRS scene the focus remains on Injustice as we begin the 6th and final full season of GBS until MKX is released in April.
Eyes were on Naptown Clutch's champion Saucy Jack but after a barn burner of a match between Jeremiah the Jew of Steel lost last weekend's grand finals runback against my Catwoman before being eliminated by N1k0lass' Ares. The previous GBS had seen Ken snipe N1k0lass with a surprise Green Arrow counterpick but this week he decided to stick to his Kryptonian guns and stay with Clark. Surviving an early 2-0 deficit he managed to adjust and tie it up but ultimately fell to the god of broke. Retreating to the Fortress of Saltitude the Jew of Steel no doubt found comfort in Dragon Age Inquisition later that night.

We all know Mortal Kombat X news has been lacking lately, but we may have something to wet your palette. At first I was kind of skeptical after being linked to an iMDB listing due to previous incorrect information, but the game's iMDB cast listing seems to have been updated and with multiple characters. I am not sure if I would call this a spoiler yet, but we might as well.
For one, Kiefer Sutherland is no longer listed, so there's at least a step in the right direction regarding facts. Ed Boon has stated multiple Click to read more![...]
YouTube user fouseyTUBE is back (see the first elevator prank featuring Sub-Zero here!) with another hysterical video showcasing his unique cosplay in the confines of an elevator. fouseyTUBE takes some big chances with doing this acts in a confined place, especially with some of the folks who are a little less amused by the act.
Nevertheless, that's what makes this part two with The Thunder God so interesting! Click to read more![...]
The tension was so thick in the air, you could cut through it with a knife. Exactly 50% of the Top 8 from last month's episode of Level Up Online Warrior made their return in Episode 2, joined by uprising stars including Hitbox Tyrant and Emperor Rebelo. After Rebelo felled MT Rico Suave in Loser's Finals and proceeded to establish a four-win streak against CD Jr, the rise of a new online warrior appeared imminent...but Junior said "NO!" and shut down Rebelo's momentum in a Grand Finals that would be forever branded within our minds!
