Just two days ago Maximilian, who makes excellent video coverage for the fighting game community noticed some happenings coming from Ed Boon's twitter. These happenings... or tweets involved Ed Boon humoring fan tweets mentioning the Predator a a guest character in Mortal Kombat X. There were some retweets, some images tossed around and from that... the speculation began! Click to read more!...

Evolution 2014 is just one week away, community, so you'll want to get yourselves ready, especially if you're going to be in attendance! If your main in Injustice happens to be Batman, you're in luck, because @ETC Mcfly has so generously prepared a video guide for all Dark Knights to study in the hopes that it will improve your chances of winning the tournament. He wants to see Batman take it all and I know that most of you want to as well, so check this out and feel free to leave feedback! Click to watch video!...

How many times have you found yourself in this position? :
- Your opponent has used their clash already, and has around 70% life.
- You have full meter saved for your own clash
- You land a Jp2 or MBB3


I'm sure this has happened to us all, and then the following combo left them alive, and then they made cameback and killed our crap character. So here I'm showing off some I.C.K. combos (It Could Kill). By burning all your resources and using every damage exploit known, every combo can reach at least Click to read more!...

Tom Brady explains the concept of footsies and applies it to Injustice. He explains the differences from Mortal Kombat 9 and what we were used to with cancel-able dashes. Tom also talks about the two major factors of footsies, including explaining space control. This is a concept that Tom feels has been holding many players back by not understanding. Well, here is a full Click to read more!...

Pig and I are organizing a Mortal Kombat 9 tournament at this year's EVO. Tentatively to be run at 6pm on Saturday. Pig is in talks to get access to the ballroom and run the event there. If not we DO have a backup location. The entire event will be streamed by Pig of The Hut. (WORST case scenario is the whole thing is recorded and uploaded that day, but stream should not be an issue.) Click to read more!...

This past weekend was the fighting game community's time to shine in Orlando. Florida. Hosted by Alex JeBailey, Community Effort Orlando aka C.E.O. rocked the East Coast. YouTube user HelloItsLi put together a video showcasing the entire weekend in 5 short minutes. This video is especially great for someone who has never gone to a tournament before but wants to.

On twitter, Pig and I were discussing the possibilities of having a side MK9 tournament. He volunteered to help Run and Stream it. I will also volunteer my time if anything needs to be done. I'm sure we will need more volunteers as well.

His suggestion was to take sign ups BEFORE EVO via paypal and distribute top 3 to the winners. We could also just do on site but doing that always causes more problems and delays. Either Way would you be interested?

As we all know, NetherRealm Studios has great passion and love for the fighting game community. They have made it clear that they will be in attendance at this year's Evolution Championship Series in Las Vegas come July 11-13 2014. On top of this, Ed Boon and party know their fans are hungry, perhaps starving for another Mortal Kombat X character reveal.

Well, you ask and you shall receive. In a recent tweet from Boon he has replied in his classic cryptic Click to read more!...

Evolution 2014 is just over one week away and the registration for this prestigious event is now closed! Last night, Evil @MrWizard releases the final entry numbers for all eight games. How do the numbers look? They look healthy. While Injustice: Gods Among Us is down from last year, as you can see below we've got nothing to complain about. Click to read more!...

As we know Mortal Kombat X will feature a lot of new characters, we have to wonder who all will make it as returning characters? Earlier this month Ed Boon did essentially verify that Drahmin, a character introduced in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance would be an "unlikely" candidate for the new game.

With this said, it seems we can safely add yet another Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance character to this list Click to read more!...

On the week of E3, we were blessed with a slew of trailers for Mortal Kombat X, a game for which we are excited for its release in 2015. In one of those videos, a demonstration for Scorpion's fatality was cut just short of the point where he slashes off Sub-Zero's face. No doubt you've wanted to see the finisher in its entirety ever since. Well, thanks to @ZoO, the video of Scorpion's full fatality has been found and brought over here. Brace yourself...you aren't ready. Click to watch video!...
