Ed Boon appears to be on something of a pre-spring spring clean, Tweeting pictures of some fairly nostalgic stuff recently, such as backstage pass for the extraordinarily cheesy Mortal Kombat Live Tour:

The real item of note, however, has undoubtedly been the notes from a brainstorming session that would one day result Continue......

The Brazilian-based company, Kombat Klub clearly have plans to keep the blood pouring in 2018. It is an excellent avenue for our Brazilian friends and players to showcase their skills and be streamed at the same time. The Kombat Klub was very active in 2017 and 2018 might even be better!

So if you want that Mortal Kombat X fix regularly, keep an eye out as these Pro League events ran by Kombat Klub are sure to quench that blood thirst. Check out their teaser trailer for 2018 below!

If there are two things people associate with Mortal Kombat, it's Fatalities and the palette-swapped ninjas that have given the MK Universe a surprisingly distinct personality. Evolving from the early days of just Scorpion and Sub-Zero, we've gotten a whole rainbow of ninjas to fight with, including the rainbow-clad Chameleon (not Khameleon, she's different). Incidentally, Chameleon is one character in the Mortal Kombat Universe we don't know much about. Continue...

It's hard to believe to those of us who remember the Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament Series that preceded it, but Combo Breaker, the largest fighting game convention in Illinois, turns 3 this year. And even though it's four months away, you'd better get a move on if you want to snaffle the early bird registration and get in there for the lowest possible cost, cos wouldn't you just know it, today is the last day for that early bird registration!



Combo Breaker is held in Illinois, very much on the original home turf of Midway Studios that preceded the modern day incarnation of Netherrealm Studios. It's always got a really strong NRS presence and the community always does a great job representing themselves there, reflected in the choices of games on offer at Combo Breaker 2018: not only is Injustice 2 present, but so too is Mortal Kombat X and Mortal Kombat 9!

So what are you waiting for? Dust off... Continue......

Hey guys, Happy MLK Jr. Day! I hope you're enjoying a day off somewhere like this nice beach photo. What we have here is an announcement that registration for CEO will go live February 1st, 2018. Interestingly enough, none of the games have been listed yet. This is because Mr. Jebailey intends to release them one by one to keep people checking back in regularly to see if their game of choice has been added! They have provided a hint to help you speculate which games they intend upon.

Just wanted to give a heads up for our new users: we do have forums for discussion on other fighting games. While TYM is the premiere place to go for Netherrealm games (if the name wasn't a giveaway) many of us play a ton of games across the FGC. So you don't have to go to one of those lesser sites to get games in Street Fighter V or talk about some tech you just found in the Dragon Ball FighterZ beta (our newest section), just stay here!

Though it may be hard to imagine now, there was a time when Mortal Kombat was debated on the floor of the US Senate, when the release of a new MK game was headline news, not just in entertainment, but on mainstream news. The reason for this? The violence.

Although MK is now as respected as a competitive fighter and has been since the release of MK9 in 2011, it's hard to deny that the primary selling point of MK was it's violence in the early days. The atmosphere, the design, the music, all played their parts, but many of us have our first memory of MK as gaping at a fatality, at the violence played out at our command. It was these fatalities that rocketed MK to global fame and no fatality is as iconic as Sub Zero's Spine Rip.

In this great compilation put together by IGN, you can relive the myriad ways the Chinese Ninja Warrior has... Continue......

What's the best part about playing Enchantress? Those sweet, sweet curses that place debuffs on your opponent. What's the most confusing part about playing Enchantress? Those sweet, sweet curses with runic names that don't seem to relate to what they actually do. If you are having a hard time remembering what they do, bc Honeybee has you covered. The two-time EVO finalist has put out a brief tutorial on his Youtube breaking down everything you need to know about how the curses work, what each one does, and how you can use the one you want to your advantage.

Introducing our new News Team!

First off, I know that TestYourMight has been lacking with news coverage for some time now. That is directly my fault and I apologize for that. However, just recently with making the post about News Applicant's, I had four members of our great community send me a private message very quickly.

Now, just days later they are already performing and exceeding​

The latest match to be uploaded on the perennially excellent K&M's Youtube channel is an awesome match up between the leading French WW player in Raf and a leading international Supergirl player in Shark Teeth, hailing from Saudi Arabia. Both of these players are very experienced tournament players, and not only are these sets damned hype, they're an excellent showcase of what both of these characters are capable of in the hands of top players.

For those who like the X-Box layout better, it`s called the Onyx

With some more details, this controller doesn't have the light bar or speaker that comes with the standard Dualshock 4. Because it has the touchpad it will still work fine with the rest of your Playstation 4 games, and the battery life should be better as well. Controller should be out on the 15th in Europe, when it will be available in NA and the rest of the world, not confirmed yet. Continue...
