Another few days go by, another bevy of top quality Netherkast content!
Good god men, give me a break. The spirit is willing, but the fingers and ears are spongy and bruised.
It's fair to say that the Netherkast's most recent ventures into shorter videos has been nothing but a stunning success, with these videos racking up thousands of views and sparking debate across the entirety of the community. This is no surprise to those of us who know the talent and drive of these guys, and their latest videos are no different, as Cyborg returns with two more awesome videos looking forward to MK11!
One of the Netherkasts major contributions to the community has come in the last few weeks, with the survey of the most demanded returning characters for MK11. There's been a couple of videos on that survey and here Cyborg jumps back into the topic, addressing some of our most beloved characters and their chances of coming back.
Please God not Cyrax.
Stages in MK are absolutely iconic. From the Pit to the Tower to the Deadpool to the Wasteland to the Courtyard, stages and their aesthetic form some of the most important parts of MK to many people, the backdrop for the brutal battles between our favourite characters. Which ones ought to come back? Check out the video to find out?
Finally, on the more traditional podcast front, we have the return to the Netherkast stage of....The Lost! The return of the beloved lore-cast, featuring two of the communities' leading lights on the matter of MK lore, @Shad and the one and only, Razor, a man whose knowledge of MK lore is rivalled only by his disdain for '****ing casuals'.
In the past, Shad and Razor have dealt with a Raiden character retrospective totalling over 5 hours, examinations of MK The Journey Begins, the MK Novel, the MKX comic series and.....Batman v Superman.
For their grand return, they address the lore, inspiration and everything and anything to do with everyone's favourite Bruce Lee clone, the Chosen One himself, Liu Kang! In particular, Razor points out that Liu Kang, far from being the 'boy scout' with little development he's often painted as, actually has a hugely rich story in the lore. Or did, before MK9, where he becomes the straight man to Raiden's incompetence.

It also has the best theme tune of all podcasts, composed by the inimitable @JangoGM
