If you are familiar with the infamous Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, you will certainly understand the looks of anguish on the image above. The last Mortal Kombat of the Midway years, it was also considered one of the worst games in the franchise. Whether you want to call it a mistake or a learning experience, it is a game that happened and it is a game that the Super Best Friends decide to play for their most recent Saturday Morning Scrublords series.

For those of you out of the loop, there was indeed a tourney this weekend, and this one actually had some Injustice 2 action. Clutch 2018 in Indianapolis went down with some big names battling it out in the first event since the latest patch. If you didn't guess from the picture above, Echo Fox Sonic Fox took home first place and finally evolved into his second form as a result. Continue...

WE ARE BACK! Part four of The Road to the Best of MK9, a retrospective series here on TYM looking back at some of the greatest matches in MK9 history to eventually determine which was the best of all time. Today happens to be the 7th Anniversary of MK9's release, so in honor of the occasion, we are looking at the first time MK9 hit the big stage: Perfect Legend vs REO at the EVO 2011 Grand Finals.

Another week, another wave of top notch Netherkast content!

Continuing to absolutely outdo themselves in terms of quality and content, the boys have uploaded quite the selection since we last checked in. So, for the benefit of those who for whatever reason haven't subscribed to one of the premier NRS community channels in the wide world of the internet, let's have a gander shall we? Continue......

NRS games are no stranger to leaks. Or, more pertinently, Mortal Kombat is no stranger to leaks. While the NRS team manage to hold onto some secrets, the days of Reptile in MK1 are long gone and significant details leaked about MK9 and MKX.

MK fans of a certain vintage will remember the mooted MKHD arcade collection, which was to be similar to the Arcade Collection available on PS3 and 360, but with updated graphics and additional features to go along with arcade perfect gameplay. It was repeatedly confirmed as on the horizon and at one stage Gamestop even accepted pre-orders for it. Unfortunately, this never came to be and the project was cancelled without much fanfare.

In development hell from 2012-2015, Ed Boon once noted on Twitter than some day the full story between the ill-fated project may come to light, along with posting this picture:

For some of us, this is one of the most beautiful images on the internet, and I don't just mean Sonya's abs.

But did you know that the official MKHD collection was not the only one of its type? A fan-made version, made with MUGEN, was mooted in 2011 and even had a not insignificant amount of work done on... Continue......

Discussing meta is mad fun in Injustice 2. In this video, I break down some theories behind when your opponent would take maniac risks and why you should expect and expose these situations. I give 3 examples using 3 characters who abuse this tactic extremely well (even though it applies for much of the cast!) Continue......

So just read this news today, not sure if TYM would deem it news....but I think people a fan of the comics and crossovers from previous JL vs MOTU will be intrigued. I like the storyline, sounds pretty neat with the art done by the same guy who did Batman vs TMNT books which are awesome. Continue...

Remember back in the day when fighting games didn't have much of a story? Well, they still don't but the crew at NRS has at least taken steps to provide some great tales for the players to enjoy before they hit multiplayer. There was a time when their games weren't as in-depth, and one of the vague story points they threw together was Sonya's partner and her quest for revenge against Kano. Continue...

Michigan's premiere fighting game event brought with it many players from outside the state including Ohio, Canada, and Florida. The Grand Finals saw hometown vs. outsider in Compbros vs. Kitana Prime. After a bracket reset it came down to pixels for both players with Prime clutching it out. Continue......

This Saturday gone was a very important date: it was three years to the day that Mortal Kombat X was unleashed on the world!

With millions upon millions of sales, the most successful pro scene in series history and new heights reached in terms of graphical quality and gameplay design (and new depths plumbed with guest characters, ***** Leatherface Ed?), MKX may be polarizing but it's place in the pantheon of not only the Mortal Kombat series, but all of fighting games is assured.

Starfire, one of the first DLC characters released in Injustice 2, has been giving people some serious headaches for months now. With her combination of chip, zoning and meter build, Starfire occupies that weird slot where she's a top tier character but doesn't have the bombast of a Wonder Woman or Black Adam, the immensely broken bull**** of a Firestorm or the patently OP tools of a Catwoman or Supergirl, so the players tend to under prepare for her. This itself then leads to salt when you release you absolutely should have prepared more and are thus now getting your back blown out, with no idea of what's safe and what's not.

This will be the only Starfire picture contained in this article, because I'm at work and I am NOT having that shit on my computer when someone walks by.

But what... Continue......

When you think about the NRS scene, odds are you are thinking of people from the U.S. If you are a bit more learned, you might be able to list off a few guys from the rest of the Americans with a few Europeans thrown into the mix. But did you know that there was a bustling NRS scene over in Africa? Continue...

Salvador Dali once said "never fear perfection, for you will never attain it"

Well I say "**** that noise", and clearly the boys over at the Netherkast agree!



The Netherkast have been going above and beyond recently, fuelling and fuelled by the nascent hype for MK11, and nothing gets the juices flowing for that game than discussions, and sometimes arguments, over what the roster should be.

The Netherkast has played a huge part in this discussion in the community, with multiple videos on who should return form the 3d era, from the classic era, the most demanded fan characters according to a poll conducted by the Netherkast themselves, fan favourites, necessities from the story perspective.....there's a lot of videos is what I'm getting at.

And we've one more!

Kick your weekend off right with a solid hour of TYM's... Continue......

Another few days go by, another bevy of top quality Netherkast content!

Good god men, give me a break. The spirit is willing, but the fingers and ears are spongy and bruised.

It's fair to say that the Netherkast's most recent ventures into shorter videos has been nothing but a stunning success, with these videos racking up thousands of views and sparking debate across the entirety of the community. This is no surprise to those of us who know the talent and drive of these guys, and their latest videos are no different, as Cyborg returns with two more awesome videos looking forward to MK11!

One of the Netherkasts major contributions to the community has come in the last few weeks, with the survey of the most demanded returning characters for MK11. There's been a couple of videos on that survey and here Cyborg... Continue......

If there is one thing you should know about the current state of classic Mortal Kombat, it's that there is a strong competitive scene down in South America. So where North America is running MK9 tournaments, you can find MK2 tournaments, like the Hidden Dojo in Chile. Continue...

BAM! It's official. The Injustice 2 Pro Series is making a return for a season 2. Teased by Ed Boon a few weeks back and accidentally leaked a few hours ago by one of the qualifying venues, we are looking at another run at that sweet $150,000 prize pool that Echo Fox Sonic Fox took home last year.

As you’ve almost certainly heard, there was a little something going down in New Orleans this weekend: Wrestlemania 34!

The sports-entertainment extravaganza has witnessed some of the defining moments in modern pop culture, from the birth of Hulkamania, the dawn of the Stone Cold era, the crowning of John Cena, the Streak, the eternal push of Roman Reigns and, most importantly of all, that really awkward-in-hindsight match where Roddy Piper went half-blackface against Bad News Brown.

This is more racially uncomfortable than the Booker T-Triple H feud, and that was really uncomfortable.

The most recent edition of the Granddaddy of ‘Em All was headlined by Roman Reigns (again) facing off against Brock Lesnar for the Universal Belt, but interested was piqued among keen eyed viewers at the end of the pre-show undercard, when Mustafa Ali took on Cedric Alexander for the Cruiserweight Championship....
