Figured this is worth a quick, separate posting because I've been seeing people all abuzz (intended spot for pun coming soon) about reveals and confirmations in the new MK11 Story Trailer and some of y'all might have overlooked something or just don't have the time to scope it out, but want details. So just a quick list for whoever this applies to! Continue...

History Behind the Warrior, Mortal Kombat Youtuber extraordinaire, was able to take a trip out to Chicago in order to check out the latest public build of Mortal Kombat 11. This build also happens to include Cassie Cage and Kano, the two characters being shown off in today's Kombat Kast (Kano confirmed, Cassie not officially). This isn't "high level pro play" as stated by HBTW at the start, but you get to see some of the tweaks they made to Cassie from MKX. Continue...

So if you didn't hear the news, Machinima, the company responsible for a good chunk of fan made video game stuff you saw in high school, was bought out and the new owners shut down all the video game related content. Unfortunately for the fans in the FGC, Body Count Fighting was a part of Machinima and also got shuttered as a part of the closings. Continue...

In a tweet put out by Mr. Wiz a few minutes ago, we got a look at the early EVO registration numbers. And while it's too early to start touting off one scene as dead and another as the top, it's looking good for NRS this year. Continue...

Major season 2019 is kicking off, and we just had the annual "what the heck is EVO doing this year?" stream as a result. You can probably venture a guess as to a few of the games, but if you want to see if you got all of them correct, your only option is to check out this post. Continue...

The Mortal Kombat 11 invitational, The Summit of Time, just dropped an official date for us as to when it gets going. And that date, let me tell you, is a great date. A date so great, I need to post it down below, because it won't fit on this main page introductory paragraph. Continue...

Killer Xinok, one of the best players in the South American NRS scene, has some high-level MK11 matches uploaded on his Youtube channel featuring some of the other players from the region. On his side of things, he has his own commentary and insights as to what's going on. BUT, for those of us who don't speak Portuguese, Xinok has let known English speaker PND Ketchup do a breakdown of these matches on the Condiment Bros' channel. Continue...

After winning his 6th Superbowl, New England Patriots' Quarterback Tom Brady is retiring from football to get into competitive Mortal Kombat. To kick things off, he's creating a gui-hold on. I'm being told this is actually Tom Brady, MK9 veteran and author of the legendary MK9 Living Guide, considered by many to have been the number 1 resource for a newbie looking to learn Mortal Kombat 9's ins and outs.

Originally brought to my attention by @Marinjuana, with the story from MKonline. So there's been talk of a Mortal Kombat movie directed by James Wan (Aquaman, Saw, Insidious) coming sometime eventually in the future. Then Wan kind of dropped back into a producer role, while Simon McQuaid (new guy on the scene) stepped in to direct. Then talk just kind of stopped beyond random interviews where people said they would love to work on this theoretical movie. Well, as of today, the movie might be more set in stone than we previously thought. Continue...
