On twitter MLG Carlos and Maxter have been going back and forth about when the tournament actually starts. It looks like REO, Maxter, CD SR, and J360 all bought their tickets to arrive on friday at 4pm. Carlos said it starts on friday then said he was informed registration is open until 4:30 on friday so if that's the case who knows whats going on. Carlos said he needs to know how many people already bought their flights and WHEN they are arriving. If they are going to reschedule because people bought flights for friday they have to know by tomorrow. So anyone that bought your flight could you please post in this thread your details and say if it's ok for it to be moved to saturday and sunday. Thanks everyone.

The Injustice tournament that took place just days ago in Moscow at Igromir, Russia's biggest video game exhibition, is over and we can now view some of this tournament footage thanks to Mr. Riddler aka "Aris" at Fighting.Ru. In the tournament video footage it's all about the Flash as all of the Top 4 were using him. We must keep in mind that this is an early build of the game and it for show purposes and it nowhere near the final product. Needless to say there were complaints about the Flash and his speed, but he's the Flash! The footage seems to display many of the Flash's moves that may or may not have been seen before.

Aris also gave a lengthy post about his opinion of the game Click to read more!...

Luke Cunningham was hard at work at the EB Expo in Australia during the Injustice demo interviewing as many players as he could that played the game. You hear many interesting and different opinions and perspectives from various fans telling Luke how they thought the game played compared to Mortal Kombat. Several players describe having difficulty playing against the Flash and Grundy describing the fight as "he's so fast" or "it's like playing against a rock". Luke asks who they'd like have join the roster and if they thought Click to read more!...

The player many have called "the best Noob Saibot player they ever saw" recently won $270 through an online tournament hosted by Pig of the Hut for Major League Gaming's Fall Championship on November 2-4 and has been looking to seal the deal. Madzin is from Germany and it looking for a few donations so he may compete live with America's greatest competitors.

To show your support for Madzin, we direct you here, to his thread concerning MLG. As far as his Noob Saibot? Click to read more!...

If you remember back on September 18th we reported Moscow having a video game exhibition where Injustice was actually going to be involved. This was a tournament that was essentially for fun and the winner would receive an HD Tv. In addition to this and being reported from Fighting.Ru the players have been giving a few highlights of the game as well as issues including the Flash apparently being over-powered. Now, before we just to any conclusions with this... mind you this is a very early build that is meant to show the game off and nowhere near the finished product.

Unfortunately, the EB Expo in Australia isn't getting any character reveals but they are getting the pleasure of meeting NetherRealm's team and creative director, Ed Boon. What we can say is that if you want to listen to about 30 minutes of questions being fired at Ed Boon going over many aspects of not only the game itself but also competitive play then, click here.

On to the two new screen shots... being reported from the Kamidogu.com twitter are two new screen shots of Cyborg and Nightwing Click to read more!...

We are now less than one month away from Major League Gaming's Fall Championship in Dallas, Texas tournament where Mortal Kombat competitors will throw down for a chance to win $16,700 in prizes! But there's more... there's always more to it than just the money, it's about the players and equally important, the 'hype' that it all brings. You may remember the player from the Dominican Republic by the name of "DR Gross" who officially made a name for himself at the Caribbean's Video X Games in St. Maarten a few months back when he defeated EVO's two-time champion, Perfect Legend in Mortal Kombat.

There was some discussion a few weeks back Click to read more!...

The guys from GameSpot are currently at EB Expo in Australia and they have gotten in a lengthy interview with Ed Boon. They go over just about every question possible asking Ed game-play questions concerning balancing, how characters use their meter to asking about actual characters. Now, of course Ed was unable to speak of what characters will be in the game although characters like Professor Zoom have been ruled out because Injustice already has the speed character, The Flash. He also mentions that certain fan favorites and characters like Lobo that people have been Click to read more!...

An Angolan top tier who as also one of the most wanted back on the time is being playing MK9 with us and we went on a discussion about MKT and UMk3
I'm just translating his own words on the meeting we had on NATGIL this last sunday

Vany:" On that time MK was special, though we fough with glitch advantages and so on, i browsed the matches from US and Brazil, and i can see, they're indeed very good, being able to fight UMk3/MKT without using any code and still be able to damage the opponent correctly was very entretaining.
Today i can really admit we Angolans we're playing MKT wrongly, me and Adam on that time shouldn't allow the usage of Unlimited Run as a mandatory rule, now everyone still plays like this and there is nothing we can change about it, though now i'm wondering how the top ten would be without the 466-466 code"

Vany:" US is definitely the best country playing Click to read more!...

Thanks to some requests and recommendations from some fellow TYM members, I was contacted by Slips about conducting an interview. It was an honor to do so, as Slips' tournament resume in both Tekken and Mortal Kombat speaks for itself. I was sure to get some good questions in about both Tekken and Mortal Kombat. Slips ended up placing top 8 for Mortal Kombat at Seasons Beatings: Ascension, and took first place in the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 competition. Needless to say, he had Click to read more!...

They're back, and first up with my Post-SB interviews is our own GGA Wafflez. Wafflez shocked the community this past weekend when he upset players like CD Jr. and M2Dave in competition and ended up placing 3rd. He had an excellent showing this past weekend despite not being able to practice due to college obligations, and placed only behind Perfect Legend and GGA Dizzy.

In this interview, Tom and I discuss his performance at Seasons Beatings, what it's like to play against teammates in competition, balancing school and Mortal Kombat, his feud and sets with Click to read more!...

Congratulations to WoundCowboy for winning!
