The list is now complete, meaning every single character in the Mortal Kombat 9 roster now has a known "Toasty Boost" input. Yes, this covers all DLC characters and yes, it also covers Kratos, the God of War. What exactly is the "Toasty Boost" again, you might ask? Months back, TONY-T presented us with an image and at the time it was only a myth. This image displayed the words "Toasty Boost" right above your meter, but how it got there was in deep question. Through time and with the help of countless members of the community, we have learned that it's all about the random times [after an uppercut is executed] that Dan Forden will appear at the bottom right corner Click to read more!...

Back to the Reeses tweets that were left over from Halloween, Ed Boon tweeted about an hour ago about announcing something on Wednesday. As he's given previous hints, leading us to believe it could be a character in relation to the song by Billy Squier called, "The Stroke" which could be anyone from Deathstroke to Aquaman... to Animal Man. Well, as Boon has tweeted this new image, there is yet another hint at it being Animal Man. Under a box of Kleenex, you make the call. Still think it's going to be Click to read more!...

It's Friday and it's about 7PM EST and you know what that means! Injustice discussion with Dinozords. What you may be interested to know is that several members of NetherRealm Studios have been listening to this podcast that is essentially ran by hard-core comic book fans. During last week's discussion Ed Boon actually said some of what was being discusses was actually in the game. So, with that said, you can expect to be entertained and educated on the DC Universe if you tune in to youtube.com/Dinozords!

What can we say, the man definitely has a vision. Will it come true? Will it materialize to what he foresees?

Perfect Legend has stated several times and again in this interview that Mortal Kombat is one of his primary games along with DOA. He admits to losing some interest in competing after winning Mortal Kombat at Evolution a second year in a row, however Click to read more!...

Tonight at 8:00 P.M. Central Time, the DownFourCast team comes together to host its final episode for the program...

...well, actually, it can't really be called a "final episode." Our team is far from done with its work. What we actually plan to do is revise the program by name and by goals. Throughout this episode, we discuss the new changes that will be brought in your direction starting next week, while reflecting on some past moments we've shared throughout the show's lifespan.

This is not a good-bye, but rather a rebirth, a renewal...or whatever term you care to use. We are shedding our shell and sprouting wings to take flight across new areas. We are positive that these new plans we've forged will contribute to a strong future for the fighting game community.

Expect to see a guest appearance from one of the original DownFourCast co-hosts, namely Juggs from the TYM staff. We will be delighted for him to sit with us again and generate discussion for old...

One of our comic book friends, JaeRoar did some snooping around was able to get a clue for who the next character reveal would be. The clue? "Billy Squire". For those of you who may not know who Billy Squire is, he is musician and one of his hits is a song called, "The Stroke". With this being said, it's being dissected three different ways. The majority of fans at the moment believe that is a clear clue for "Deathstroke" to be revealed next. The other two dissections are Click to read more!...

Take it as a grain of salt as both the Chief Creative Officer of DC Comics, Geoff Johns and Ed Boon recently had some back and forth twitter activity that clearly hinted at two characters. While Geoff Johns on twitter was asked to convince Ed Boon to put Sinestro and Atrocitus, who are essentially two other "Lanterns", Ed Boon replied saying, "chances of ONE of those two is pretty high. Maybe both?" As the two joke around, as they obviously both know Click to read more!...

Before reading this you might be taking for granted what happened during the Fall Championship. Let's take a quick leap back to before Mortal Kombat 9 - what is there? Mortal Kombat is lived by multiple years of essentially 'underground' competition that is kept alive by numerous individuals including Shock, Summoning and Tom Brady, a time where its numbers were never great in comparison to Street Fighter but that's not the point. It almost seemed like two different worlds. You got the online warriors fighting to keep their 3D games afloat, however did not see any tournament life nor were they ever truly recognized as tournament games. During this time, the funny thing was that many players were afraid to even show their face as to be the first to make an actual appearance in public, away from the online competition that was a Click to read more!...

Major League Gaming reported some impressive growth numbers yesterday, numbers that have sheer potential. According to MLG and their charts, the amount of online viewership has grown immensely within the last couple of years. From 2010 where they had 1.8 million, to 2011 where the numbers went up to 3.5 million... the growth was definitely there, but what about this year so far? Mortal Kombat had a full-season of MLG this year from the Spring Championship to most recently the Fall Championship Click to read more!...

Dinozords and JaeRoar bring you guys a very interesting batch of ideas for Injustice. These guys also run the "Dinozords" podcast on Friday's that discusses Injustice by stripping down and dissecting videos, backgrounds and searching for any clue left by NetherRealm Studios. It's a very entertaining and quite educational discussion, especially if you don't read the comics.

In this video, they are presenting a 'Season Pass' idea for when the game comes out that involves DLC, story-lines and much more. Dinozords and JaeRoar are more for the comics than fighting games, but with Injustice coming out this just goes to show you Click to read more!...

As we reported about one month ago, the first issue of the comic book series leading up to the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us is set to come out January 30th. The story of Injustice is a "new order" that is taking over and not all choose to abide by it, hence characters in the DC Universe taking sides. In regards to the brand new comic book series, it is being written by Tom Taylor with the artwork coming from Jheremy Raapack. This is definitely something to Click to read more!...

This all started a few days ago, actually while listening to the very entertaining Injustice podcast being ran by Dinozords every Friday at 7PM EST. Ed Boon retweeted their show and soon after doing so is when he tweeted about possibly revealing a new character soon in which he took of picture of three comics with Swamp Thing, Animal Man and Batwing. Now, in to today and thanks to MaceWind over at Mortal Kombat United, we can now also include the possibly likes of Click to read more!...

As we get closer to Injustice it'd be nice to know more and more about thr DC Universe and its characters, wouldn't it? A few days ago, Ed Boon retweeted a show a few guys were doing that discussed an in-depth and detailed breakdown of screen shots, videos, background stage objects, possible character story-lines and much more. These guys are definitely more about the comics and know what they're talking about rather than competitive fighting game players. With this said, Click to read more!...
