Kind of just want to get this information out of the door as soon as possible, MrMLGAdam confirmed that MK9 alongside SCV will be at MLG Anaheim with a total of $16,700 Prize Pool minimum.

It has been a very interesting weekend for the fighting game community. We had the great honor of having two amazing events on the same weekend. This, however, is not about both those events but the event everyone was looking to with untrusting eyes. Of course I am speaking about MLG Columbus. With many skeptics in the community, this was looked at with the worry of a parent’s eye wondering if things would work out between the two groups. While this is not an article about the event itself, this is about the stream and the casual experience for all video game enthusiasts.

For me, I have been one that has always wanted every community to work together. From my humble days a fan boy of Team Hate (bonus points if you remember them) to me running my own international events, I have enjoyed Click to read more!...

This thread will serve as a location for hearing the communities feedback on how MLG Columbus went, both people who attended and who were simply watching the stream.

I've already been talking a bit about the event over at SRK, that stuff can be found here.

For my background if you were at the event, I was typically calling matches and giving what information I could - basically I run the bracket and tell the officials where to go while also coordinating with Click to read more!...

With 92 entrants and upset upon upset, we have finally come down to our Grand Champion at Major League Gaming's Mortal Kombat 9 Winter Championships, vVv CD JR! While many of the upsets spelled "CURBOLICIOUS", vVv REO was able to finally eliminate him after Curbolicious lost one match then came back by running through 11 Top players inlcuding the Mortal Kombat 9 Evo 2011 Champion, Perfect Legend. The top 8 came down to all New York players except Click to read more!...

Today marks D-Day where the winner's Top 8 and the loser's Top 8 clash and we begin narrowing down the players till there is only one? Who's it going to be? Will we see an upset or will we see the return of a "Legend"? It's very hard to say, but nonetheless the Hype is still through the roof for the Major League Gaming Winter Championships! With $33,400 on the line anything can happen today starting at 3:30 EST as per the MLG schedule. Below is Click to read more!...

Say what? Exactly... it seems a lot of people have either just heard of this or they haven't, but TONY-T is here with proof. What is the "Toasty Boost"? We're not quite sure but from what was gathered, it is a random bonus (full-meter?) that is given, in this case, to the one taking the damage. Dan Forden appears on the bottom right side of the screen like usual, however Click to read more!...

EPISODE ONE: "People don't want me to teleport and start controlling the air in real life"

Welp, this has been almost two months in the making, but here it is. After a number of roadblocks and setbacks, I'm pleased (more so relieved) to announce that THTB and I are debuting the first episode of our podcast, Lair of Altaire (with The Huggable Tay Bear), brought to you by The Digital Dojo. The show itself is pretty straightforward: Topics will center mostly on current events in the MK scene, but may also cover various other fighting games from time to time, as well as any random-ass tangents we happen to go on over the course of the episode. Without further ado:

This week, our guest was the one and only Perfect Legend, who was straight to the point about his projections for MLG. We interviewed him on subjects ranging from his predictions for top 8, his confrontation with JamesMK, and...

Hey fellas, as you know, I have been selected as commentator to assist with all games at MLG, starting with Winter Brawl.

I did play MK up until Evo 2011, but after that, I did not kept up with new changes / patch notes. First of all, I want you guys to know that I do not intend on half-assing this position. I care about the MK Community and I want everyone to be well-represented. Since being offered this position, I have tried catching myself up by watching more recent tournament footage, reading the patch notes from Click to read more!...

If you don't know who he is, you will now as he makes a video challenging all players in his country to a first to 10 in all Mortal Kombat games. The crazy part is the stipulations he makes for the matches are against himself - he can only use Scorpion in all games no matter how bad the match-up is and he cannot change characters. Watch as he accepts challenges in MKII, MK9, MKDA and Click to read more!...
