New Kombat Kast, this one detailing 3rd variations for the cast and a mysterious new game mode. If you couldn't watch for yourself on Netherrealm's Twitch, then read on for a brief breakdown of what they discussed.
Jolt has returned with the latest breakdown of the weekly happenings in the NRS scene. This week, he's talking about some of the many tournaments that have been going on and what's coming up through 2020 and beyond.
The other day I saw somebody retweet a video from and artist named Bleys, who redid one of the openings from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, but with Mortal Kombat characters. I don't even watch JoJo, and this opening was super cool to see. Check it out below, and make sure to follow them by clicking their name above to see what's coming next.
"Hey, you said this thing was tomorrow? But that header says the 24th!" You are right. That's because Destroyer is hosting two separate things: the next part of his super hype qualifier series is taking place tomorrow, but he's also a part of CGL's Konsole Kombat, and there's an event for that coming up soon.
New book written by David L. Craddock and illustrated by Milan Jaram takes a look at the history of early video games and the impact they had.
Excerpt from the book can be found at Polygon. Basically, it's a collected history of early games with Mortal Kombat included. It has an interview with John Tobias himself if that kind of thing interests you. It's written as more of a narrative, so it won't be as stale as you might find in another book of the same type. It's a cool lookback if you weren't really cognizant when these games came out, or if you want to go back to when you were a kid to remember how cool it was to see a Street Fighter game where a dude gets his head punched off.
If you are looking to buy this one, you can grab a copy for yourself on Amazon...
