In previous articles in this series, I’ve discussed the most likely 3d era characters to return and what to expect from them (https://testyourmight.com/threads/op-ed-likely-returning-3d-characters.67549/) and the least likely to 3d era characters to return and what could be done to redeem them (https://testyourmight.com/threads/op-ed-how-to-redeem-the-forgotten-characters-of-the-3d-era.67567/).

Here, I’ll be discussing those 3d era characters crucial to the story aspect of the game. Characters who, unlike say Hotaru or Havik or Nitara, can’t just slot into the story on grounds that they’re doing their own thing and it happens to intersect with the main plot. No, if these guys are in, they’re either the main focus of the story or they’re non-canon DLC. Continue......

Another day, another purported leak for the eagerly anticipated upcoming Mortal Kombat 11. We've had a bellyful of these as of late, so much so that TYM's own beloved @ImperatrixSindel went above and beyond the call of duty in debunking/proofreading them (you can find this masterpiece here: https://testyourmight.com/threads/mk11-leaks-a-case-by-case-analysis.67553/page-2#post-2408440)(and Sindel was ahead of even the TYM News Staff on this one: https://testyourmight.com/threads/n...tails-cover-art-community-reveal-plans.67573/)

But enough about Sindel doing my job for me (<3), let's get onto the fresh, new leak!

I've just noticed he's almost dabbing. Don't even think about it Ed.

According to the new leak....

Hi guys!

I'm on the Leak Patrol these days, apparently. ICYMI, I did a thread on the supposed leaks we've seen so far, debunking details to show why they're probably all fake.

There's a new 'leak' today, though, that has more points in its favor: Continue...

With the announced return of the Mortal Kombat series, the fanbase is clamouring to see which characters will return for the latest iteration of our favourite franchise. Something many people are looking forward to in MK11 is the return of some of the 3d era characters given the possibilities and implications of the ‘Krisis on Infinite Earthrealms’, a sobriquet I am determined to make stick.

As I noted here (https://testyourmight.com/threads/op-ed-likely-returning-3d-characters.67549/) some of the more popular characters of the 3d era are almost expected to appear in MK11, such as Li Mei and Havik. This shouldn’t come as a surprise: go look at any Let’s Play of the 3d era and, amidst the undeserved mockery, those characters will generally be grudgingly acknowledged as pretty good.

But what about the mockery and the mocked? Here, I’ll be defending the merits of the 3d era games in general elsewhere but here I want to focus on the mocked characters. In my view, a... Continue......

Earlier today, Todd McFarlane was hosting a reddit ama (Ask Me Anything) where a fan asked about Spawn being in MK11 and Todd responded in the best way possible... (see the image below):

Techincally, nothing has yet been confirmed by NetherRealm Studios, but with all DLC to potentially have in Mortal Kombat 11... Spawn should be in everytime. If you've never read a Spawn comic or watched the movie - let's just say he is the most fitting DLC character we could ash for.

See the video breakdown and the images below:

Hi everyone!

There's been a lot of discussion about the various 'leaks' that have sprung up over the last year or so regarding MK11. Many people seem to be taking them as gospel, which I think is premature. In any case, 'the leaks say XYZ' is already being used to shut down speculation and discussion, which is aggravating, so I thought I'd sit down and tackle the subject.

Obviously NRS titles have had leaks in the past, including MKX -- most recently, Injustice 2's whole base roster leaked quite a while before the game came out, apparently via someone working on the mobile game. It's very possible one of these leaks is legit, but it's also very possible that all of them are nonsense.

Generally speaking, a fake 'leak' works like a psychic cold reading. A professional psychic uses educated guesses about their subject to aim for a few likely details. If these guesses turn out to be correct -- called a 'hit' in cold reading -- it makes it easier for the subject (or an... Continue......

With the announced return of the Mortal Kombat series, the fanbase is clamouring to see which characters will return for the latest iteration of our favourite franchise. Given the ‘fracturing timelines’ theme rumoured for MK11, people are rightly expecting many of their favourite characters to return.

Among those characters are the likes of Jade, Nightwolf and Noob Saibot, but we aren’t talking about them here! Here, we’re gonna be talking about 7 of the most likely 3D era characters to return, either as main roster or as DLC. This is the first of a series of four articles over the coming weeks, which will also cover the most fan-requested returning characters, the possible major story implications for certain returning characters (Taven, Daegon, Shujinko and Onaga etc) and, as a bit of fun, the worst of the worst characters (all of whom do come from the 3D era).

For nine generations, which, from our knowledge, is the longest reigning streak of victories in the history of the tournament, one single champion reigned. One being remained unbeaten in Mortal Kombat for 450 years. All who opposed him, beginning with the legendary Great Kung Lao (who himself defeated Shang Tsung), met with a swift and certain death. Second only to Shao Kahn himself, none were more feared than this legendary warrior. Continue......

With the long awaited announcement of Mortal Kombat 11 almost shattering our collective minds, it’s easy to get lost in the hype and nitpick the handful of screenshots and the trailer that we have to judge the game from, overthinking things and making wide ranging predications predicted on precious little evidence.

So let’s do just that shall we! Stick on your favourite tunes, don a tinfoil hat and join let me be your guide on this intrepid journey!
