When you think of Mortal Kombat, if you're anything like me and if you're a fan of a certain vintage, one of the first things you think of isn't Mortal Kombat at all, but Enter the Dragon. Continue......

Just because Combo Breaker is a few weeks away doesn't mean that there isn't any Injustice 2 action going down. Texas Showdown 2018 took place on Saturday, with a smaller, but stacked, Injustice tourney. The Top 8 had some familiar faces and some not as familiar faces, which you can catch in the very next paragraph that won't be on the main page: Continue...

In what should come as a massive relief to everyone craving something, anything, on MK11 and what’s next for NRS (which is all of us), we’ve just moved into the final stretch before E3. With NRS’ precedent of releasing initial launch trailers a week or so before E3, followed up by a gameplay reveal and a (very basic) demo at E3 itself, the finish line is hoving into view. Therefore, it’s time to start pondering what we’re going to see in a matter of weeks. Continue......

REO is back, with what appears to be a brand new series. If the title wasn't a giveaway, this is going to be a series that looks at the broken stuff from past NRS games (seemingly just MK9 for now) and examines just why "so-and-so was broken." This first part is, you guessed it, about Sonya Blade and everything she brought to the table NRS' return to 2D fighters. Continue...

Like Mortal Kombat? If you didn't, it'd be a little weird for you to be here. Like Fortnite? It's free and a lot of fun, go check it out if you haven't. Anyway, if you answered "yes" to both, then resident artist/Swamp Thing player Decay got something for you! Continue...

Hey guys, sometimes when you get bored and see your hard drive filled with many old streams/videos/sets etc. You come to realize that a lot of this never went public. So what do we do with that found knowledge? Assemble a lot of funny rage quits, salt, and anger into one massive video. This was originally... 3 hours so we cut it down to just the highlights and even that almost pulled an hours length. Without further ado, Seven Years of Salt! Continue......

A new glitch was discovered by (credit to Buffalo who brought it to my attention-HBH) that shows off some new dirt with Leo. His Legendary Gear augment that allows him to MB a trait call can apparently be done in competitive mode. This is absolutely not intended. Continue...

Apparently! Uncle JBeezY came across Max's video on my lunch break. With YouTube's new guidelines, having future MK content looks grim. And thats HORRIBLE news for ppl who like to show off tech, cool brutalities, ANYTHING Mortal Kombat! What does this mean for MK11 and the NRS community !?Question mark!? I, for one, am hella upset at this bull! What do you guys think? Is there any other ways to get around this? Continue...

Fantasy Football has become one of the worlds favourite pastimes. I just checked back to mine that I haven’t looked at since September to find I had Salah, Kane, De Bruyne and Firmino. So I’m winning everywhere. Which is something of a pyrrhic victory for a Man United fan. Continue......

It's a battle of the blind in the latest DBX up on ScrewAttack. If you aren't familiar, DBX is a spin-off series from the super popular Death Battle series. This one being shorter scenarios without all the theory crafting and keeping to just the neat animations they usually throw in at the end of a Death Battle video. If you somehow skipped the title and image, you'll be surprised to learn that Kenshi makes an appearance up against Marvel's Daredevil. Continue...

tabmok99 is back with another MK history vid, this one looking at Kano's possible son. A bit of a short video, but this does explore some possibilities that may or may not occur when Mortal Kombat 11 finally releases (if it does, we still don't know if it's coming). Continue...

Just because War of the Gods is over doesn't mean that we don't have any Injustice 2 action on Stream.me. We have our lineup for tonight's The Clash, and it is an Injustice 2 palooza the likes of which the FGC hasn't seen since last Friday! Continue...

This topic has been discussed throughout the history of the fighting game community. I even made a very similar thread on the subject a little while back.

This applies more to the NRS community than any other community, at least in my experience.

The benefit of withholding tech is temporary. The thought process is very simple, and it even makes complete logical sense. If I am going to compete in tournaments, why would I expose all this tech that I put in the work to find and essentially expose people to how they can beat me? Or to put it in another way, let people benefit from MY work in the laboratory.

What players don’t realize is the long term effects sharing EVERYTHING has. The more competitive a player is, the more likely they’re going to stick around. A great way to help ensure people are competent, is to share tech. But not only share tech, but even showing ways around it. If there’s a handful of top players that only share tech with each other, those players are... Continue......

@ForeverKing is really outdoing himself bringing the hype to Combo Breaker 2018. The NRS scene's premier Batman and multi-character expert, the man with more counter picks than Perfect Legend has disappointing tournament performances post MK9, has confirmed on Twitter (here: https://twitter.com/MK_ForeverKing/status/988894185590808578) that he has no less than 4 NRS money matches at the upcoming Illinois tournament and is in the market for more.

King is arguably the greatest NRS player to never win Evo (arguably, @REO fans) and remains probably the single most consistent force in the NRS scene.

Step to, mother*******

The brave other parties for MK9 are @GuamoKun and Slayer, who'll step to King's varied roster (with Kung Lao and Freddy likely to be King's primary characters) in the much beloved classic currently undergoing a deserved competitive... Continue......

God I hate Mondays. But instead of doing something regrettable and possibly illegal to spice up the beginning of your week, just remember that you have an extremely finite amount of Mondays to get through before your inevitable joyous departure to sweet oblivion.

Or you could get stuck into a podcast. Your choice really.

Today for your audible pleasure, we have the latest edition of the Warrior Shrine, featuring Jango and Temp as always but also featuring the tireless host of the NK, Cyborg. The boys talk us through three main topics covering nearly two solid hours of awesome content. Continue......

If you are familiar with the infamous Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, you will certainly understand the looks of anguish on the image above. The last Mortal Kombat of the Midway years, it was also considered one of the worst games in the franchise. Whether you want to call it a mistake or a learning experience, it is a game that happened and it is a game that the Super Best Friends decide to play for their most recent Saturday Morning Scrublords series.

For those of you out of the loop, there was indeed a tourney this weekend, and this one actually had some Injustice 2 action. Clutch 2018 in Indianapolis went down with some big names battling it out in the first event since the latest patch. If you didn't guess from the picture above, Echo Fox Sonic Fox took home first place and finally evolved into his second form as a result. Continue...

WE ARE BACK! Part four of The Road to the Best of MK9, a retrospective series here on TYM looking back at some of the greatest matches in MK9 history to eventually determine which was the best of all time. Today happens to be the 7th Anniversary of MK9's release, so in honor of the occasion, we are looking at the first time MK9 hit the big stage: Perfect Legend vs REO at the EVO 2011 Grand Finals.
