The first match to kick things off, Big D (Nightwolf) vs Pig of the Hut (Kenshi) goes in strong. Both playing their A games; Big D takes the first match and not by much! Big D makes Pig go to Mileena and Pig does not diappoint as he makes a very strong comeback when it came down to pixels of life beating Big D making it even at 1-1. Pig of the Hut continues his amazing play and wins against Big D, sending him to losers in Click to read more!...

Other information that now seems to be deleted(?) and/or may have leaked is something that was apparently written on a blog via "OXM", Click to read more!...

I still remember the day Phil aka 9.95 told us about his Mother, Linda passing and the toll it took on him and his family. Without Phil, a lot of what TYM is today would not be possible let alone the monster of a streaming group he has made in to the "Kombat Network". He is a brother who lives over 4 hours away from me and I love the guy, we all do... and what he put together and thanks to all of your very generous donations towards this very special cause, well... Phil has something to say to you all Click to read more!...

Hector and Brian show you, especially the "Bonus Challenge Tower" that is made up of 150 missions. More touch-screen fatalities are demo'd as well as a few other brand new missions like "Test Your Balance" that apparently has many ways and variations in how you die. The biggest treat of the video however is about half way in at the Sektor mission where he shoots multiple missiles at one time and you see Click to read more!...

Since the topic of footsies has come up recently, some have asked for a thread to explain them more in detail. This thread is to accomplish just that.

Footsies are a high level tactic utilized in nearly every fighter. Some games use them similarly, others have different methods. But the general idea of what footsies are remains consistent.

When you hear the term "footsies", you automatically think of a foot and things in fighters related to that. Whether it be a short, forward or roundhouse in SF, or a LK, HK/FK, BK in MK. I've even heard people say games like UMK3 don't have footsies because you use jabs more than your kicks/sweeps. So it's obvious there's some confusion on what footsies actually are. Think of footsies more of knowledge and mind games.

Footsies are understanding what your opponent is or wants to do, then punishing them for it. You force your opponent into a situation they don't choose to be in. Footsies are knowing your character AND your opponents...

First off, let me start by saying if you're a die-hard Killer Instinct fan and you want a new Killer Instinct game... this will only tease you more than you can probably handle. This is a "fan-made" 3D Demo Reel video by Ryan Markley that features a "rebooted" version of Orchid. She is shown three times in this video at 0:08, 0:31 and 1:41 and Click to read more!...
