Killer Instinct Season 2 has arrested so much attention around the FGC, it's become impossible to dismiss. Since production for the game fell into Iron Galaxy's hands, they have not been afraid to test the waters, pushing the levels of combat to extremes that symbolize its truest nature as a fighting game. Recently, Adam "Keits" Heart from the IG team sat down with Paul "SuperFX" Dziuba for an interview regarding the company's visions for the future of the game. You can check out an excerpt from the interview here and then proceed to SRK's page to continue reading. Click to read more!...

The YouTube channel "The Warp Zone" has put together an awesome video of what it would be like to be a Doctor in the world of Mortal Kombat. Sure, Doctor's get gunshot wounds, broken bones and internal bleeding, but what about severed torsos by a four-armed Kombatant? Welcome to the world of being a Doctor for the Kombatants of Mortal Kombat.

We'll get right to work... after lunch, that is! Click to view!...

So who is this mysterious Shirai Ryu member? We know that the clan was wiped out. So could he just be another inevitable death in the MKX comic that has said to have deaths every few pages. Or does he have even the slightest possibly of being playable in the upcoming game?

"Thanks to Warner Bros. Entertainment, we have received all the Mortal Kombat X Comic Art that has been released and this mysterious character has a name, Click to read more!...

Montreal Mayhem #11

Season II


After two weeks off, Montreal Mayhem returns with the start of Season 2. The turn out was good, not as good as MM #10 but that was to be expected. The break definitely had an effect on us, not just in game but, even running the tournament was slower then usual. However this is to be expected as we will need some time to get this train running as smoothly as it was week ago. Click to read more!...

UPDATE (10/22/14 @ 7:00PM EST): It is confirmed that this will indeed be a live action web series based off of Mortal Kombat X. Source: GameInformer via @Zmoke

While the details are very unclear as to what this will be - news from the HollyWoodReporter indicates that there may be a Mortal Kombat X series (including an untitled Mortal Kombat series produced in partnership with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment that is tied to the upcoming Mortal Kombat X video game)? We've known that a Mortal Kombat Legacy season 3 was in the works, but as for the trail it would follow was and still is unclear. The question is, will this reported series be a continuation from Mortal Kombat Legacy season 2 or will it tie directly in to the upcoming Mortal Kombat X game set for 2015? What would make more sense considering we also have a digital comic book series also Click to read more!...

Tonight has witnessed the rise of Level Up's Online Warrior Championships for the Killer Instinct community, courtesy of Alex Valle! For the debut event, twenty-four titans have responded to the call for battle. If you thought that the hype for online tournaments could not possibly match those of an offline event...you were just proven wrong. The bracket was gradually minimized until a stacked Top 8 remained, from which only one champion could emerge victorious...and tonight, that champion is the EVO 2014 champion, TheSteamCo CD Jr!

Ed Boon has recently tweeted a picture of a motion capture fatality. Whoever it is, they seem to have telekeneis. This pretty much leaves Ermac and Kenshi. The stance, and the holding his hand to his head(which Kenshi does very often in special attacks) seems extremely similar to Kenshi.

Is this Kenshi? Is this a descendant of Kenshi? Is this somehow Sektor? You decide. Click to read more!...

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. After all, since Ed Boon'll likely never get to have this happen in a game... I guess this is the only way! Click to view!...

A few days ago this fantastic interview hit the web talking with Shawn Kittelsen, the writer for the new and upcoming Mortal Kombat X digital comic. In this interview Shawn gives you a taste of just how deep he is diving in to the Mortal Kombat history by even mentioning games like Special Forces and Mythologies. He also explains his close working relationship with NetherRealm Studios and the freedom they give him.

Aside from this, the details about the book are obviously slim, however, he does mention Click to read more!...

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. There was something there and you may have had to squint your eyes to see it, but it never died. @Shock assisted with running tournaments for the classic Mortal Kombat games before the majority of the community today even existed.

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. Although Halite was but an inch away from ensuring his path to Grand Finals, Dig Bickerson's switch to his former main character (Sadira) proved instrumental in not only thwarting his opponent's ambitions but also winning the entire tournament!
