The company behind these figures is set to be Mezco Click to read more!...

Carl "Perfect Legend" White has sent us a video that may make you smile. That is, if you have issues fighting against Batgirl pressure i.e. her cartwheel. @Perfect Legend Legend stumbled upon a new blocking technique that makes it much easier to not only block her pressure, but more importantly punish it.

He explains this and showcases it in this video. Click to view!...

@pherleece and I have always thought of the possibility of bringing back the show for the next Mortal Kombat game. With the announcement of MKX and all the amazing gameplay footage, how could we resist!

For the newer members who weren't around during the MK9 era, we have a live format show where we interview usually 1 to 2 players and then later bring on more people to discuss topics related to usually Mortal Kombat. We also delve into comedy, life, and just about anything else. We will be discussing this week, MK at EVO and obviously MKX.

For our First returning we are running a special event. Click to read more!...

There isn't much information out there yet, but thanks to @SimSim we got it confirmed that Injustice WILL be at West Coast Warzone 4.

This is usually in Orange County (near where SCR was) and the date is set for September 5 - 7 2014, but hopefully more info will be released soon: Click to read more!...

Before anyone gets too excited, to my knowledge this is for PC/Steam users only! Coming from the Steam Community website, it appears that NetherRealm Studios have updated the PC version of Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition with numerous updates. The updates seem to focus primarily on online improvements and do not seem to cover gameplay. Click to read more!...

Tonight, let's take some time to flash back to some pleasant memories from MLG Anaheim 2014 that the participants experienced. @Digit, a Shazam player who has proven himself commendably well in the Injustice scene, has captured unforgettable memories of MLG via his cell phone. These include a recollection of pools, hotel casuals, and even a glance at the player cam which captures a pop-off by @EMPEROR_THEO. If you missed out, well, this look at behind the scenes of MLG ought to entice you. Enjoy! Click to watch videos!...

As most of you know we held a MK9 side tournament at EVO last minute because EVO felt like it wasn't worth a fourth year. @AK Pig Of The Hut of the hut and myself quickly did our best, put together a side tournament with a 2800$ pot and 80 entrants. The entire event was streamed and seemed to go well. We also did our best to make the community happy by running 3/5 with 4/7 GF and streaming every pool. This was in a way, us giving back to the game and community which really brought us all together and brought us so many great moments and hype.
And the people who donated to the pot bonus seemed to feel the same way. (Thank you so much, again!)

Looking at the IGN Evo grand finals here are the numbers of viewers..

1. Mortal Kombat 9 250k
2. Street Fighter 150k
3. Smash bros 110k
4. Injustice 100k
5. Marvel 90k
6. Killer instinct 90k
7. KOF 80k
8. BlazBlue 55k
9. Tekken 70k
10. Skull girls 50k

We already know that Mortal Kombat out sells every other fighting game and it...

Our FGC friend, Aris from Avoiding the Puddle has put together yet another great video covering Raiden's recent Mortal Kombat X reveal. The primary focus of this video is in two parts: He loves the idea of the three variations, while he also has concerns of each character feeling like a 'complete' character.

Aris played Raiden in Mortal Kombat 9 and loves his new design. He expresses very legitimate concerns Click to read more!...

I've got some cool stories that I wanted to share with everyone here :)

*My Weekend in MK*

Friday 7/18/14: MK Fundraiser!!!
$108 Raised By Playing Mk9!!!

I teach Media Arts and Animation in Minneapolis and every year we have an animation festival at a local theater. This year we’re raising funds to try to make our film festival bigger and better. As a fundraising activity I hosted a FIGHT THE TEACHER video game day, where I basically money matched my students at $10-1 for 8 hours straight. Students paid $1 for each fight, and if they could beat me, I would donate $10 of my own money. I ended up fighting 108 matches, winning every match! This means we raised $108 just by playing Mk9 all day. Good stuff! Click to read more.....
