NRS has made it official: There will be no MKX on Xbox 360 or Playstation 3. Read the release posted on Community.WBGames.com:

"After months of development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has come to the regrettable conclusion that we cannot release Mortal Kombat X for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Please know our teams worked diligently to meet the quality standards set by the current-gen versions of the game. We were not able to get the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions to the quality expected of a Mortal Kombat game and are very sorry for not being able to deliver the products as originally planned.

If you pre-ordered Mortal Kombat X for PS3 or Xbox 360, please go to the retail location where you pre-ordered the game and you will receive a full refund."

Hey guys, the attached video is a demonstration of a new discovery made by Mustard and I's viewers during tonight's stream. After an hour and a half of experimentation, we finally got to the bottom of it. Quan Chi is able to create multiple spells at the same time, meaning he can have either double of one spell, or one of each.

This also creates a side effect if you create two Hex Spells. Quan will receive a permanent buff to his chip damage, giving him a regular hex style chip at all times, regardless of whether he's got them under the hex or not. Put a hex underneath them and he does double chip. This gives him a legitimate 100% combo involving guaranteeing the chip after landing a combo.

This is done by doing the following setup:

This weekend TGS brought back our infamous sponsorship tournament series, where we send winners to majors. We wanted to give the areas best a chance to travel and compete with other scenes. 4 games were held and 4 winners will be going to TFC on us! Locals took Sm4sh and Ultra while travelers came in to win a chance for themselves. In GG our boy from NC came up and in MK we saw KevoDaMan come down from the city of ravens. Most of sova's best came in with 6 travelers to compete for our spot at TFC. Even though most of us are going, we want to give everyone a shot. Coming down are KevoDaMan, xxDark, The Magician, Take$$$, Orochi, and Deathra K. SOVA's house was partially defended with 6 out of the top 8 but as a whole the house was not defended.

Toronto's best came together at SHOXS Bar today to see who would get the edge going into Summer Jam. Notable names such as @HoneyBee, @xGunShow, @w1nter warz and Biohazard were all present along with newcomers and old faces. HoneyBee had been on a tear as of late ever since his loss to Gunshow at Mortal Clash V and Gunshow was finally back to take the top spot. However, one person wanted to put a wedge between the Toronto Elite and that man would be known only as, Sacky.

(Note: I am about to refer to myself in the third person. I'm sorry.)

Epic Gaming League has gotten a little more interesting since KoreyTheDragon(the scene's most dominant player) moved away. This marks the first time there were two different Epic champions back to back since about 10 or 12 Epic's ago. Tonight still featured notable Dallas players Ofidyan(AKA the PL Slayer), IceColdEdge, GnarlyGatoAlex, SUNB Perm and the GOTS team. Winners finals found Perm facing Zoidberg747's Tanya, with Zoidberg managing to take it 3-1 over his Predator and Kung Jin. Perm also had a tough losers finals match, barely losing to IceColdEdge's Reptile 3-2. In grand finals we had two Dallas players who have played each other since MK9, with Zoidberg getting a 3-1 victory over Ice's Reptile and Kano to take the tournament. Thanks to all who participated and hope to see you next week!

Another That MK Weekly in the books, another week of ridiculous blowups and upsets in the bag, and another week of solid performances. This week we had our lowest turn out to date, and the action was firing right from the start as a result! Let's skip the long tension filled sensory orgasmic experience that is the words I create to grip you to my thread and get right into the action!

So we at BLT have changed the way we do things, from the way we play and train. To the way we run and stream the tournament. Ultimately we want to put on a great stream and display the true talent that we believe have within BLT. So watch and support our players cause it'll be no time before our players are on the big stage. One change that we made is we started a season so we can keep track of points and at the end of the season we are planning something special .;)

Another That MK Weekly in the books, another week of ridiculous blowups and upsets in the bag, and another week of solid performances as Team TGS and the rest of the Southern VA crew look to level up their game. Team TGS is prepping for SJ and continues its dominance of the area. Let's skip the long tension filled sensory orgasmic experience that is the words I create to grip you to my thread and get right into the action.

No tournament to stream monster this weekend? KTP has you covered with over 3 hours of MKX related audio entertainment! On this episode we cover last weeks huge EGL tournament and are joined by the winner for various topics. Slips gives a breakdown and assesment of his boy Scorpion. Plus a long awaited apology from M2Dave regarding a certain abysmal character. Also you do not want to miss WoundCowboy's words for a fellow Shinnok forum warrior. Tons of game talk and lots of off topic nonsense during the 2nd half. Enjoy and leave your feedback in the thread!

Espio's Tigrar Fury Goro Guide

In the Tigrar Fury Variation, Goro becomes a much more versatile, layered character with options to pressure and check the opponent much more effectively at not only close range, but far distances as well. He gains access to a plethora of fire based attacks including a straight flame ball, a close and far ranged low fireball and flame breath, helping to create a much more well rounded, complete Goro that has a unique, mentally stimulating zoning kit.

Hey guys! Once again, I bring you a Quan Chi Variation guide, this time focusing on Warlock Quan Chi.

I've actually heard a lot of people saying that they think Warlock Quan sucks/is ass, even I thought that at first glance, but post patch I feel like Warlock really does have a rightful place in the game. Warlock Quan is the Buzzsaw or Kenjutsu of Quan Chi, you're not going to have this as your main variation but you can certainly use it if the matchup calls for it.

Quan counter zones better than most characters in the game due to his Warlock F3 and df2, giving him a free 11 frame mid that tracks you anywhere on screen, even knocks down which allows you to poke with it and advance if you see it hit for some pressure. It wiff punishes almost every fullscreen move, which makes him a nightmare for characters like Jacqui Briggs or Kenshi.
