It seems we have come one step closer to flushing out UltraTech!

Congratulations go out to GamerLCD for overcoming the competition in the second episode of the Season 2 Subscriber Showdown series, hosted by Mr. Grimmmz! Every single match in the tournament brought about its share of amazing moments, but LCD demonstrated a merciless assault with the rebellious freedom fighter which nobody could endure. As a bonus, he received a code to unlock TJ Combo as a playable character and, by the generosity of a stream monster, a pot bonus of $25. Click to read more!...

So The Kombat Tether posted this link about half an hour ago or so. In this link is a bunch of recorded dialogues between characters, The Kombat Tether are trying to get people to decipher it all so that we can all learn more about the story through the tid-bits of information the intros have given us.

So as someone that prides themselves on knowing all the MK lore they can, I thought I'd post this here in case no one else has and in hope that someone could take this bits of audio and edit them Click to read more!...

We are now eleven days away from the launch of Killer Instinct Season 2. Just yesterday, Microsoft hosted their weekly textual stream where they discuss the new user interface for Season 2, including the massive revamp in fight titles (now called Fight Challenges) and unlocked content. Take a look at this portion of Adam Isgreen's post at the Ultra Combo forums before proceeding to the link at the end of this post to read the rest. Click to read more!...

No mercy!

Myself and Max have both won 3 GBS tournaments in a row but no one has ever won 4. A month's straight of victories is a difficult task with the level of competition and the nature of Injustice's mechanics. However, records(and backs) are made to be broken and although it took a year Max has achieved this feat. The road to his 25th GBS win was similar to the last 3 weeks with an intense set in winners against PPJ. Seemingly giving Hawkgirl a much needed rest PPJ decided to use Lex Luthor for a villain vs. villain slobberknocker. PPJ took Revolver's advice and lamed it out but still came up short in a close 3-2 set. Max comfortably Click to read more!...

Moments ago our good friends over at MKServer tweeted us an unexpected and early link (we were expecting it to come later!). However this link contained footage of a new and returning Mortal Kombatant, Quan Chi! He was revealed at the Sony Press Conference in Moscow, Russia. Have a look! We took some screen captures and have them below! Click to view!...

Notes:

  • DaddyDab had to leave early for parental duties, so neither Winners Finals nor Losers Finals got to be played.
  • NineQuads! He played outstanding!
  • EverLast's matches are also worth watching, he has a new found neutral game and it's awesome!

Montreal Mayhem #10


What can I saw... Montreal Mayhem #10 was a bigger success then I could have ever hoped. The sheer fact we've been able to organize something like this for as long as we have is amazing. Add in the fact we got 18 different people to show up still astonishes me. Also actually having a stream this week was great even if it still isn't perfect.

We once again ran both games at the same time. The 12 man Injustice tournament and the 11 man Mortal Kombat one. Sadly, Injustice got all the stream love as MK was only able to get Loser's Finals and Grand Finals on there. Click to read more!...

Something is on the way for sure, but what? Boon has once again been taking to twitter with several cryptic hints. We can tell you that a few of the fighters speculated consist of Fujin, Noob Saibot, Ermac.

Sir Ed Boon, Creative Director of NetherRealm Studios just tweeted this pic out...

At first I thought of Quan Chi but the more I analyzed this... It's shadows.... and Shadows mean only one thing to me in MK... and that is Boon Tobias spelled backwards!

Could it be? Click to read more!...

Hi, guys! After finishing the final day of EGX, I had the super pass so I mainly played MKX most of the time. I got a good friendship going with Derek Kirtzic, Associate Designer, so I didn't have to keep queuing. Instead I hit the MKX ladder mode until they matched me with a single player for the versus mode, as I went up on my own this year. I got a few good matches in against Derek himself and he was pretty sick to spar with...seeing as he designed most characters, I'm not surprised. :) Click to read more!...

This will be kept simple and sweet. Southern VA's best and some surprise guests gathered at VA's That Game Store for a wonderful opportunity. With a sponsorship to The Fall Classic on the line everyone brought their A game with hype just around the corner. Let's get right into the action! Click to read more!...

Last night, the second season of Mr. Grimmmz's Subscriber Showdowns kicked off with a resounding turn-out of sixteen players. Although Jago and Sadira were among those to receive the hardest nerfs from Iron Galaxy, the bracket was still flooded with Tiger Spirit warriors with Maciaga's Sadira lurking among them (he went by the tag The_legitshka). Once again, the tournament host made his own entrance to add to the fun, but chose to drop out against Maciaga due to severe lag spikes disrupting their gameplay. In the face of a true community spirit, this event flourishes and eventually culminates in a victory for The Maciaga 5! Click to read more!...

As the Kombat Tether shared with us via their experiences from playing an early build of Mortal Kombat X up in the Canadian lands, Raiden's original X-ray attack (seen here) has received an update. It draws upon some inspiration from Shazam's Super Move attack in Injustice: Gods Among Us, but features twists that bring out Raiden's truest nature as a God of Thunder. It is unclear if this will be his final X-ray attack when the game releases in stores on April 14 of next year.

What do you guys think? Do you prefer his original X-ray or his updated one? Let us know in the comments below!
