European magazine publication, Gamestar has given us some new (and old) Mortal Kombat X screenshots. These screenshots are particularly exciting due to these being some of the most details screenshots we've seen. With that being said, considering how crisp Mortal Kombat X looks already we can only imagine how amazing it's going to look on April 14, 2015. Click to read more!...

Every Saturday evening, players from the Killer Instinct community gather at the side of Mr Grimmmz to hash it out for the throne. It has only been the second week since the rise of the Grimmmz Subscriber Showdown Weekly series and already it is attracting plentiful interest. Although tonight's turnout was around half of the previous week's, it was not without its display of talent! It all came down to a grand finals between Jago and Sadira, and after countless twists that threw the viewers for a loop (a loop of webbing, that is), RG Grief emerges victorious!

It's been a while since we showcased any custom skins for the PC version of Mortal Kombat 9, but I happen to stumble upon this after Boon retweeted it. With Mortal Kombat X launching next April it's a long wait for us because, well... we want to play the game now. So, in order to maybe help satisfy the urge for the next Mortal Kombat perhaps you can dab in to this custom Mortal Kombat X Scorpion skin Click to read more!...

Many of you may have heard of this legendary huge notebook I made for every player and match up in MK9. In the end it consisted of over 350 pages of notes, statistics of every situation for every player I needed to plan for per MU, results, reviews of all footage recorded, what I need to adjust, what not to do, to do, etc etc etc x10.

Anyway, I thought I'd share 2 pages of my current Injustice notebook. It will look hella intelligible, however maybe some players can get something out of it in terms of going forward for MKX or maybe now till other majors in Injustice. This notebook for MK9 was extremely responsible Click to read more!...

Hi fellow TYM members, and Sub players :)

Had the chance to play MKX at a games expo called (Games14 Sep11-12-13) here in Dubai, and I would like to share my experience on it with TYM and try to give some info on my fav ninja, Subby himself!
I will go over general game info first, and move to specifics - from what I saw, played, and experienced. Mind you, this is just a demo build things could change and I might also have not noticed things properly or missed to observe, or whatever.

General
- Game feels a lot faster than igau or mk9
- very smooth mechanics
- visuals looking great
- overall gameplay is fun and easy to learn
- running was giving me some trouble at first, so everytime I dash blocked I would get a run because dash cannot be cancelled and if you block while in the dash you go into run and next thing you know you are smack in the opp face. not sure about recovery from run, something to be explored further
- game had frame data for each move,...

You match my size, not my will.

After a post EVO sabbatical Max made his return last week but came up short in the grand finals. He would not have to wait long for another chance as he charged to winners finals with 3-0 victories against Truth's Batman and a returning Tommy's Green Lantern. In a familiar winners finals Max met his first serious threat of the night against PPJ. Looking dominate in the beginning Max seemed to be in complete control, grounding the annoying bird Hawkgirl. However PPJ got back into the game and was poised to tie the set up 2-2. A heartbreaking combo drop cost PPJ a win and gave Max his chance to regain Click to read more!...

Out of all art, this has got to be one of the coolest forms. We have showcased these 'flipbooks' before, but this one takes us back to Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Back in the day when you used Shang Tsung, you could morph in to the entire cast for a limited amount of time, you posed a greater threat to your opponent. Well, in this flipbook presentation Click to read more!...

After Mortal Kombat 9's return to the Super Arcade last week in southern California, players have responded eagerly to the challenge with very stable turnouts.

His iconic Reptile has set a precedent that players will strive to follow in the weeks to come.

Now that the Playstation 4 and Xbox One consoles have been firmly established in the gaming market, it is only natural that expansions upon their luxuries would be a hot topic among gaming communities, including controllers. Well, for those of you who happen to like the traditional six-button fight pads, @CEO Jebailey has just disclosed an image, via Instagram, of a prototype of a PDP fight pad to be used for the next-gen consoles, seen at the Gamestop Expo convention that is currently ongoing in Anaheim, California. And as you'll see, it comes with a unique twist: its design is based off that of Mortal Kombat X! However, at this time it does not come with a D-pad and its approval is pending. Nevertheless, when I looked at the image myself I could not stop gawking at its cool design. Click to read more!...
