The Hit List – The five worst Mortal Kombat fatalities

Fatalities are to Mortal Kombat what a fat child is to a chocolate company: Absolutely pitiful without it. Having been around for two decades now, Mortal Kombat has carved a bloody niche in the gaming industry with solid kombat that is bolstered by gruesome finishing moves. Not all Mortal Kombat fatalities have been brilliant however. In fact, some of them have been downright daffy. And these five are the worst of the lot.

Shocking – Raiden announced for Mortal Kombat X

Mortal Kombat X is pretty much a new slate for the revered and gruesome franchise. It’s got an emphasis on introducing new characters to the series, a stark contrast to Mortal Kombat 9’s roster that consisted entirely of old favourites. That doesn’t mean that you won’t see a few familiar faces in the sequel however. Well hit your jukebox and start looping some AC/DC, because a thunder god has returned.

The Hit List – Top 5 Most Excessively Violent Video Games

Video games. Violence. Somewhere out there, a politician is experiencing a rush of blood to his primary brain as he puts those words together to form a single semi-coherent rant that will get him elected. But video game violence ain’t going anywhere! In fact, it’s getting even grislier than before, dipping into excess. Here’s a video of five games that we found exceptionally gory. So if you’re under 18 and don’t have an upchuck bucket with you, I’d recommend not watching the video. For reals.

FIGHT! Mortal Kombat X announced for 2015

2011’s Mortal Kombat is widely considered to be one of, if not the, best fighting game ever made for the current generation of consoles, PC and handheld devices. But that was three years ago. Now, it’s time for round 2 on a new generation of hardware. FIGHT!

This Mortal Kombat tease is full of subluxations

Like everything else in life, any debates or arguments can always be settled with a sense of finality by hopping into an arena and fighting to the death. Mortal Kombat has given fans a digital alternative to actually having to spill blood. And it’s been pulling a Teasality on fans for a few months now as the build-up to E3 continues.

Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks getting HD re-release?

There have been quite a few Mortal Kombat Spinoff games, and every single one of them has been exceptionally awful – save for one. Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. Set in the Mortal Kombat II timeline, Shaolin Monks was a pretty damned fine co-op game featuring Liu Kang ad Kung Lao in a God of War styled adventure. And it looks like it’s getting an HD makeover.

The five strangest hidden fighting game characters…ever

Back in the day, unlocking an extra character in a  fighting game would revolve around you opening up secrets in your favourite brawler, not opening up your wallet and forking out extra cash. Developers had fun with the concept back then, inserting cool characters and villains into the mix. Some of those developers also suffered severe brain damage thanks to prenatal alcohol abuse, resulting in the following five fighting game characters that time forgot.

So like, Mortal Kombat X just got announced

Not that I have any problem with Injustice: Gods Among Us, which may be the best fighting game of this generation, but I’d be damn happy to see a new Mortal Kombat announced soon. And for once, it totally was. And without all the usual hype and teasing that accompanies such sequels. Like totally, dude.

So sit back, relax and enjoy some of the best grand finals ever played at EVO.

Here’s what you’ll need to run Mortal Kombat on PK

So is your rig ready to run a one on one fight to the death? Or is it a fatality for your processor? Hit the jump to find out if it’ll test your PC might.

Scorpion is the next Injustice character? C’MERE!

If there’s one thing that Injustice: Gods Among Us is not, it’s a Mortal Kombat game. Geoff highlighted that difference in his review of the superb fighter, as it starred kitizens of the DK Universe going head to head with one another in classic one on one kombat. And now, that game is going to get a taste of some real Mortal Kombat action.

Injustice: Gods Among Us review

NetherRealm successfully rebooted Mortal Kombat, returning the series to its roots and making the hyper-violent fighter relevant again. It’s now taking on the DC licence for a second time, trying to atone for its sins with the frankly awful Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Injustice: Gods Among Us does away with Mortal Kombat’s baggage and with it the gratuitous violence, focusing instead on just the heroes and villains from the comic books. It’s a better game for it.

C’mere! Looks like Mortal Kombat is headed to PC

True story, I need souls to survive. Why, just meeting Geoff for five minutes at the airport last night was enough to get my energy levels topped up, as his emaciated husk of a walking corpse can attest to. It’s also a great line to start a story about how one of the finest fighting games of all time is about to lay the TOASTY on PC.
