First Look at MK11


Obviously the biggest thing to note, Mortal Kombat will get its first official ingame gameplay reveal today. It will be hosted by Mr. Joshua Gray, who has hosted previous events for MKX, including tournaments and character reveals. In addition, a few of our own staff will be in attendance, whom you can see here.
(They are both quite gorgeous.)

Celebrity Face-Offs and Exhibition Matches

This is another thing you may have heard of, but MK Day will be packed with famous and familiar faces,...

Hey, everyone. New video from series is back but this time it's about MK9 and some history leading up to it's release. Unfortunately many of the sites mentioned in the video no longer exist. Which is a shame since there were so many hilarious threads and theater-worthy moments that I would of loved to link to. Anyway, enjoy the video and I'm sure some of you 3D heads here may appreciate the trip down memory lane. (if any of you are still around reoLUL) Continue......

When the realms were formed, the Elder Gods agreed that they would not interfere in the affairs of the realms and of mortals. For aeons, the realms existed with the Elder Gods seemingly indifferent to their existence. Eventually, however, one Elder God began to take increasing interest in the realms: in particular, he found himself desirous of ruling Earthrealm. This was the Elder God Shinnok.

Shinnok desired not the abstract overlordship of the Elder Gods, but the direct rule of Earthrealm, perhaps akin to the reign of Shao Kahn over Outworld. It is unknown what Shinnok’s ultimate goal was: it seems unlikely such a figure would have contented himself with the rule of one realm, and it could be that Shinnok’s long-term plan was to establish himself as the sole Elder God, ruling over all existence.

Shinnok thus began to scheme. He was aware of the prophecy of the Armageddon and the steps Argus and Delia had undertaken in their scheme. Becoming aware of the enslavement of Blaze by... Continue......

With Shao Kahn and Raiden both getting their full-character renders released, it was only a matter of time before we got to see Scorpion's. And that time is mattering now! Theoretically, our last one before the reveal event next week, so make this last. Continue...

Ed Boon, everyone's favorite video game person, has posted a picture of a lizard. While part of the world has been reeling from the implications of this tweet, others are figuring this is just another gag to get people excited over nothing. To talk about what that tweet could possibly mean, PND Ketchup has put out a quick video discussing Chameleon. Continue...

So here it is! The official cover art for Mortal Kombat 11. Some of you may be looking at this and saying "this looks familiar". And you are right, this was part of an earlier leak that many of us thought was malarky. But with this final design, it appears that we may finally have confirmation on one of these many leaks.

With Shao Kahn's full look being the story of the day yesterday, it was only fitting for the Defender of Earthrealm (now the Aggressor?) to get his look revealed. So yeah. Here it is. Check that out.

Dragons are a mysterious and powerful species, possessed of many extraordinary powers. There appears to be at least two species of dragons, as we have evidence of the most powerful of the kind being referred to as ‘great’ dragons. Though it is unknown if they exist in all realms or what commonalities species, or individuals, may share, the Gold and Red Dragons, Orin and Caro, had great power, including the ability to open portals, breathe fire and seemed functionally immortal. The seal of the Elder Gods themselves, used as the sigil of the Mortal Kombat tournament, is itself a dragon, and dragons appear in the mythology and lore of many races throughout the realms.

The most impactful ‘dragon’ in the history of the realms was no myth, however. He was the legendary Onaga, the Dragon King of Outworld who ruled long after the creation of the realms (though many thousands of years before our current time). It is unknown if Onaga himself was truly a dragon or if that was merely an... Continue......

As the community eagerly looks towards MK11 like the insatiable fanboys we all are, a lot of people are looking back on MKX, myself included. Having played a hundred or so Ranked games over the holidays, it was hard to come to the conclusion that the game will live on as a true classic of MK.

It feels so lacking. The gameplay just doesn't compare to the heavy footsies based style of MK9 but more importantly the game doesn't pop, it doesn't feel alive and vibrant the way MK2, UMK3 or MK9 do. And the roster sucks. Even having a main who suits you and a character you like, shout out Cybernetic Kano's zoning and corner combos, it just isn't fun to play nor fun to immerse yourself in.

And, happily enough, this revisiting of the latest iteration in the MK franchise is the theme of the most recent Netherkast podcasts, just in time to help you on the return to the drudgery of life after the holidays!... Continue......

Another day, another amazing piece of content brought to you by the two and only, Ketchup and Mustard!

This time, everyone's tied-favourite-Englishmen, with Ketchup representing the inferior condiment but the superior cyborg (and one of the two to be personally excused of responsibility for the whole British-Empire-in-Ireland thing by me) return to MKX, discussing the place of variationless characters in the game.

It's that time of the year: Kumite in Tennessee 2019. Well, it was 2 days ago anyway. If, like me, you missed the details on who won what and whose mom popped off on Kitana Prime because she was happy her son won, have I got the thread for you! Continue...

Just a little something I threw together on a slow Friday night,thought I'd throw it up for y'all

EARTHREALM
Earthrealm has become a centre for inter-realm warfare in recent years but has historically been divorced from the affairs of other realms. In fact, Earthrealm seems unique among realms in that for the vast majority of the history of the current inhabitants of Earthrealm, the majority of those inhabitants have had no knowledge of other realms. Exceptions to this include the Shaolin Order of Light, the White Lotus Society, the Lin Kuei and the Shirai Ryu and the Black and Red Dragons, all of whom frequently interact with beings from other realms. It is a realm of much beauty, with natural forests and oceans and grasslands among a variety of terrain on a largely temperate, extremely habitable realm. This, as well as the great power said to be found in Jinsei of Earthrealm, has led to it being the object of many conqueror’s desires, most famously Shinnok and... Continue......

So, I was playing some MKX and thinking "Omg, the voices of Mileena and Kitana are so freaking good I wonder who did them. I found out it's the amazing Karen Strassman who does both and I was curious to see if she'd given any hints or liked anything on Twitter in terms of her returning to Mortal Kombat 11. Continue...
