Well, it's not the 17th yet, but it appears we have our first character reveal after months of waiting. We still of course have to wait for official word from NetherRealm, but we'll let the image below do the talking. Maximilian tweeted out a photo of Injustice 2's Playstation store image. See below!

Following a simple tweet, may we receive a flood of hype. May we find out more on 01.17.17.

UPDATED: See below for updated gif images.

Yesterday, we finally got a shred of news, more like a teaser, but still. According to @tylerlansdown our minds will be blown come 01.17.17, which is next Tuesday, so be sure to be locked in to Test Your Might as all hell better break loose.

Below is a collection of gif images that seemed to be dispersed from various

Some new shirts have surfaced and have even been advertised by the Master Pesina himself on his Facebook and Twitter. These t-shirts have the original Mortal Kombat actors on them, plus very nice, full designs. These are definitely the shirts you wanna have if you're the nostalgic Mortal Kombat fan.

Check out a glimpse

He's one of, if not the most well-known character specialist. Tom Brady has recently made another BradyCast and this time he states it's his final review of the character he specializes in; Sub-Zero. Ever since Mortal Kombat 9, Tom has devoted his resources, energy and skill into the Sub-Zero community. In fact, the Sub-Zero forums are often the largest due to this.

First off, to anyone who doesn't know what the Mannequin Challenge is... it's basically a collaboration of people frozen in an act of motion. In this time, someone filming walks and records around the entire scene; almost like being in the matrix. The choreography is very important as well as all participating persons maintaining their "frozen still" position. In mainstream terms, this challenge has become viral.

Moving on, in this 2:22 video, the folks of NetherRealm Studios (visibly recognized: Dan Forden, Daniel Pesina, etc) have put together an amazing Mannequin Challenge video that not only shows off the incredible folks that work on our games (there's like over 100+ employees, right?), but is also

The last 8 men standing are here as day two of Kumite of Tennessee is finally starting to settle... until tomorrow. They are all fighting for the 1st place spot. SonicFox won this event last year and he one of two of the ONLY returning top 8 contenders w/ WoundCowboy being the other. Will history repeat itself or will someone prove an upset over the newly named "Echo Fox | SonicFox"?

We'll have to wait and root for our players tomorrow at 6PM Central! In the meantime, check out your Top 8 below!

Check it out below. I think many of us were anticipating an April release, but it has been confirmed that the Americas will see the game in May. Yes, that means about one more month of waiting than we were anticipating! Use that time to grind Injustice: Gods Among Us or Mortal Kombat X!

We recently learned of the exciting news that eSports team EchoFox had signed up our very own SonicFox and Scar. YahooEsports have conducted some very interesting interviews with both players, revealing details about their contracts and futures in the FGC. This is quite an exciting time for the FGC, and if you're interested in the competitive fighting game community and curious about how these Esports teams work, then give these interviews a watch.

How do you stop this momentum, really? I would think that anyone caught in SonicFox's path this week would be facing defeat after his (along with Scar's) exciting announcement of joining Echo Fox. Last week, Sonic simply didn't get the Kombat Cup in time, however, for week 10 he did not make the same mistake. This week, he strolled into the top 8 and he took the Grand Finals over GTG Semiij's Mileena w/ Tanya.

Along this week's top 8 were many regulars including Circa Destroyer, Dragon, that keep making the top 8 but are no doubt

SonicFox had promised exciting news would follow his departure from Critical Reaction, and this news has now come to light. The professional eSports organisation Echo Fox have fittingly signed up SonicFox along with other fighting game legends such as Justin Wong, Tokido and Momochi.

Kombat Houston's Scar has made the announcement that he has left from the sponsorship of PandaGlobal. While it is unclear why he made this decision, he did state that he made the decision on his own to leave. He also stated via twitter that it had nothing to do with his illness.

Sponsored or not, Scar is and will continue to be a dominate force for the NetherRealm scene. We wish him

Mark Julio (MarkMan23) just announced on his Facebook page that the Evolution 2017 Announcement Show will be on January 24th; about 4 weeks away on a Tuesday. On this night, we will learn more about what all EVO 2017 will have in-store for the new year competitors as well as what we're always eager to know most... which games will be in the official line-up.

TheScoreEsports had put together their top 10 "Most Memorable FGC Moments of 2016" at the summit of the New Year and low and behold, the EVO 2016 Mortal Kombat X Grand Finals' moment where Tekken Master made SonicFox take off his hat was one of the moments captured. As many know, it is extremely rare to see SonicFox without his furry blue hat whenever competing. The fact that he took it off when Tekken Master was shaking things up, had the crowd and the commentary going wild.

At this point, you either love or hate the Fox for his success in MKX. He has proved himself to be

@Vandy has been nice enough to give us the pools for KIT very early in the week. Giving everyone plenty of time to prepare. From what I can tell these pools are all stacked and anyone can make it out. This event is looking to be very good for the viewers and for the players.

Well everyone, it's that time again. The night where we say goodbye to the year we just had and hopefully start off on better footing for the coming year. It's been a long year for a lot of us. Some are just happy that it's over, seeing this year as a complete flop. And while yes there has been a fair share of bad in 2016 from terrible catastrophes across the globe to the deaths of beloved actors/actresses/personalities, we can't let that get in the way of the good this year has brought. So I wanted to take this time, and this thread space, for everyone to reflect on the year and remember that it wasn't all bad. Seeing as how I'm the one making this thread, I'll go first.

What 2016 Did For Me
I will admit I've gone through some pretty terrible things this year but one of the single best things that could have happened to me happened this year. March
