Welcome back to my novel length tournament write-up threads!
This week the Cincinnati crew put on quite a show. Luckily for us, the Street Fighter crew was generous and offered us their time slot this week since our events are coinciding with the Street Fighter League, meaning they will probably have the stream again every time in the next 2 months.
That said, it shows that we don't stream often, and as such I apologize for the VERY loud game audio. I also apologize for the downtime between matches. Cincinnati is free to converters. Click to read more![...]
This week the Break was packed with people for both Injustice and Street Fighter. With the invasion of the Strong Island Crew, The People of the Hills (PA) invading and a special guest from out of country, the Break was stacked. 14 people for injustice! Click to read more![...]
Here are two videos in which I found very interesting. We follow Ed Boon on twitter, however there are a few tweets I occasionally miss. For anyone who may not follow NetherRealm Studios' Creative Director, Ed Boon on twitter, you may be interested in some of his Mortal Kombat character mentions. Out of all tweets and all character mentions.... these are the ones that he has replied to.
What does this mean? Well, really nothing; this does not confirm or deny any of these Click to read more![...]
Boon has been active on twitter again recently and he's also been dropping some juicy hints - perhaps juicer than usual. Take it for what you will, but besides the recent possible leak or Kano in a German GamePro it looks like Boon it heavily hinting towards the condiment brothers back in the game.
The following tweets were taken from Boon's twitter. Whether this is nothing or something, considering Click to read more![...]
With Kano's reveal having been prematurely confirmed all the way from Germany, Maximillian takes to the YouTube community to impart his thoughts on the return of the man with an infamous reputation for ripping out the hearts of his victims. Near the end of the clip, Max brings up a response made by Ed Boon to the fans commiserating over the deaths of their favorite characters in the previous title, Mortal Kombat 9. The nature of the response suggests the return of characters that were "killed" in the new storyline...could this possibly hint to the return of, say, Kitana?! While you think about that, give this clip a watch! Click to watch video![...]
By now, the EVO reveal for Raiden in Mortal Kombat X ought to be common knowledge, but another video discussing his role has surfaced on the Internet. During this video, Ed Boon throws in some input on what to expect from Raiden, particularly his character variations, and even lets it slip that Kotal Kahn is the "new ruler of Outworld." But what ought to intrigue you more is Raiden's appearance on the character select screen. See it all in the clip below! Click to watch video![...]
Yes, you read the title correctly: a prize pool of $1,000 is being split in half with each going to both NRS titles at Summer Jam 8, hosted by @Big E! The event is set to take place on August 29th, near the end of this month. For those of you who are still undecided about attendance, perhaps this will give you some motivation in making your choice, especially since Summer Jam is another noteworthy major for the community.
The pot bonus for Injustice is confirmed in this thread where you can review all the details about Summer Jam 8, and for those who are skeptical about the MK9 pot bonus, this post from Big E's Twitter account should be the confirmation you need. Click to see more![...]
