Thirty-two players convened today for Week 8 of Season 2 in the 8Bit Beatdown tournament series! The Killer Instinct community appreciates the streaming services of ZombieBBQ and GamerLCD, as well as their commentary! As our way of thanking them it is encouraged that you follow their Twitch channels provided after the included photo of Grand Finals (or you can just check the archives). 8Bit Beatdown occurs at 4:00 P.M. Eastern every Sunday and is an all-KI event that draws in large amounts of players at an impressive frequency. Quality of gameplay is GREAT and it provides for a solid learning environment, so if you have an Xbox One and your copy of the game you are encouraged to participate!

With Kan-Ra's release and the balance changes just around the corner, the participants intended to make use of their available options in their quest for supremacy. Nobody had it easy. Eventually, it Click to read more!...

Last night, Episode 6 of Mr. Grimmmz's subscriber showdowns attracted nineteen subscribers to one grand coliseum. Actually...eighteen is the more accurate count, as the nineteenth participant was none other than Mr. Grimmmz himself! Once again, an army of Jago players held sway over the bracket, but of course, only one could stand victorious. Against the mighty Emperor Menzo's combination of Glacius and TJ Combo, Mr. Grimmmz wins the Grand Finals set with a 2-0 victory! Click to read more!...

With a cash prize of $285 up for grabs, nineteen fierce competitors from all around the U.S. and Canada congregated at @Clark Luthor's stream for their chance to see the glory of Kumite in Tennessee 2015. Match-ups were variated to no end, gameplay levels were off the charts, storms of salt crashed down around the competitors like bolts of lightning...the atmosphere in the online realm of Injustice was one of chaos. Eventually, the final battle was set between @EMPR_MURK and @Hysteria (Stuka), which meant that the conflict of Nightwing vs. Sinestro would continue its course based on the events that occurred in Pig of the Hut's Red Hot Sunday exhibitions.

Gratitude goes out to the community for coming together to support this event, and I for one am excited for the outcome! TUNE IN! Click to read more!...

As video-gamers, have you ever fantasized about what it would be like to work at a company that designs your favorite gaming franchise? Well, as of yesterday, that fantasy has turned into a reality for Mr. Maximillian. As he confirms in the video below, he has had past involvement with Double Helix in video production for Killer Instinct Season 1, but wasn't immediately approached by Iron Galaxy when the task of developing Season 2 fell into their hands. However, as a step towards perfecting the story mode for its eventual opening in Season 2, IG and Microsoft have brought Maximillian on board to work on the game. Now, for someone who loves Killer Instinct as much as Max does, this has to be an amazing change for his life!

For those wondering, this will NOT impact his frequency in uploading videos in a negative way. In fact, Microsoft and IG have apparently Click to read more!...

For those of you who didn't get to catch Kan-Ra's debut trailer and gameplay demonstration, do not fret...because, courtesy of Mr. Adam Isgreen from the Ultra Combo forums, the treats are right here for you to sink your teeth into! A nice prelude to your incoming Thanksgiving dinner next week, no?

For those wondering, Kan-Ra will be available to those of you who own the Ultra Edition package for Season 2 next Monday. The week after that, it will extend to those who own the Season 2 Combo Breaker package. Otherwise, you should be able to purchase him individually as a character for $5.00.

And...is that Riptor at the end of the trailer?! :D Click to read on!...

Season II


"I come, I win but then I drink... Now I just wanna play BARAKA!" - Chuckish Proverb

A lot of things didn't go too well this week. Troubles recording and general slowness cause Injustice to take MUCH longer then it normally does. Sadly causing MK to be skipped even though @IFEELYOURHATRED and @Wind Masta came out after a few weeks of absence to play. Luckily they got a lot of games in while waiting so it was hopefully not a waste. Click to read more!...

After sharing some more Mortal Kombat X fight dialogue via twitter Ed Boon has asked what everyone would like to see next? The latest dialogue exchange Boon tweeted out was the words between Scorpion and Quan Chi (via this link). The awesome aspect of this dialogue is that it resembles the "clash" dialogue from Injustice: Gods Among Us, except it's before the match starts.

This is different from Mortal Kombat 9 as well because each fighter would always say the same thing, for example, Kung Lao says "For the Shaolin!" before every match. With Mortal Kombat X dialogue Click to read more!...

The rest of the FGC may be hype for Smash Wii U but for the Chicago NRS scene the focus remains on Injustice as we begin the 6th and final full season of GBS until MKX is released in April.

Eyes were on Naptown Clutch's champion Saucy Jack but after a barn burner of a match between Jeremiah the Jew of Steel lost last weekend's grand finals runback against my Catwoman before being eliminated by N1k0lass' Ares. The previous GBS had seen Ken snipe N1k0lass with a surprise Green Arrow counterpick but this week he decided to stick to his Kryptonian guns and stay with Clark. Surviving an early 2-0 deficit he managed to adjust and tie it up but ultimately fell to the god of broke. Retreating to the Fortress of Saltitude the Jew of Steel no doubt found comfort in Dragon Age Inquisition later that night.
