Welcome to the beginning of a new series! Everyone's favourite British brothers, Ketchup & Mustard, recently released the first of what they promise to be an ongoing series examining the meta of past MK games. And if the debut of this series is anything to go by, it promises to be a firm favourite of anyone with even a passing interest in the competitive side of MK. The first game they break down is the progenitor of competitive MK, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Continue......

Hellooo my beautiful Catwomen (please don't lynch me <3), and welcome all other TYM brethren! Today I bring you a very special treat - a detailed look at the magnificent wonders of Catwoman's hitbox! As a Selina main, I've had some incredibly strange things happen in matches; Both while playing with, and against her. So I decided to take an in depth look at these situations to create a chart specifying which normals and specials she can exploit using her hitbox, as well as which of her tools she can use to do so. And I personally thought the results were incredibly interesting so I thought I should share. Before you read the list, a few things to note - Continue...

Ed Boon appears to be on something of a pre-spring spring clean, Tweeting pictures of some fairly nostalgic stuff recently, such as backstage pass for the extraordinarily cheesy Mortal Kombat Live Tour:

The real item of note, however, has undoubtedly been the notes from a brainstorming session that would one day result Continue......

If there are two things people associate with Mortal Kombat, it's Fatalities and the palette-swapped ninjas that have given the MK Universe a surprisingly distinct personality. Evolving from the early days of just Scorpion and Sub-Zero, we've gotten a whole rainbow of ninjas to fight with, including the rainbow-clad Chameleon (not Khameleon, she's different). Incidentally, Chameleon is one character in the Mortal Kombat Universe we don't know much about. Continue...

It's hard to believe to those of us who remember the Ultimate Fighting Game Tournament Series that preceded it, but Combo Breaker, the largest fighting game convention in Illinois, turns 3 this year. And even though it's four months away, you'd better get a move on if you want to snaffle the early bird registration and get in there for the lowest possible cost, cos wouldn't you just know it, today is the last day for that early bird registration!



Combo Breaker is held in Illinois, very much on the original home turf of Midway Studios that preceded the modern day incarnation of Netherrealm Studios. It's always got a really strong NRS presence and the community always does a great job representing themselves there, reflected in the choices of games on offer at Combo Breaker 2018: not only is Injustice 2 present, but so too is Mortal Kombat X and Mortal Kombat 9!

So what are you waiting for? Dust off... Continue......

Hey guys, Happy MLK Jr. Day! I hope you're enjoying a day off somewhere like this nice beach photo. What we have here is an announcement that registration for CEO will go live February 1st, 2018. Interestingly enough, none of the games have been listed yet. This is because Mr. Jebailey intends to release them one by one to keep people checking back in regularly to see if their game of choice has been added! They have provided a hint to help you speculate which games they intend upon.
