If there is one thing the NRS scene can agree on, it's how damn hype Bane is to watch at high level. And if there is any one person to count on for high level Bane play, it's Biohazard. Over on his brother's Youtube channel, he's given us more of that Bane game play in an exhibition match against Doctor Stabs' Firestorm. If you wanted to see how quickly a health bar can vanish in this game, this is the set you want to watch. Continue...

Remember the Joker? He's gone through some big changes since the start of the game, with a lot of his combos looking really different on paper since the input for his teeth changed to DD3. With that in mind, Noble Raptor has done what he's done best and put together a fresh combo guide for the Clown Prince of Crime complete with notations on screen as he does them. Continue...

There's been a lot of really amazing Elseworld/multiverse stories in comic books and DC does them arguably better than anybody. With some of comics most iconic characters to choose from and with decades of potential jumping off points, it really shouldn't come as a surprise to anybody that DC have some of the most famous, and infamous, 'what-if-stories', from Kingdom Come to Red Son to Gotham by Gaslight.

Ed Boon has been on a bit of a nostalgia kick lately. Between the MK3 patch notes he recently shared and this sketch he uploaded, we've been getting an interesting peek into the early days of Mortal Kombat. What you are seeing here is an original drawing and backstory done by John Tobias. From the caption on Twitter, this appears to be an early concept for the character we've come to know and love as Liu Kang. Continue...

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...
