Sure, you may have the skills to pay the bills in fighting games. But can your juggles and ultra-combos make you stand out from the usual rabble of brawlers? Are you just another Sektor in plain sight, or are you runway fatality just waiting to happen? That’s the beauty of alternate costumes in fighting games, as they give players the chance to stick out a tad bit more than usual. Mortal Kombat has a history of providing fashion for fighters. And the upcoming Mortal Kombat X will have a ton more costumes available.

I’ve been digging the build-up towards Mortal Kombat X so far. Beyond the hands-on time and getting plenty of info on the more esportsy nature of this particular brawler, the game has also been releasing tidbits of information on each fighter that will be available, as a fresh mix of new and old kombatants will be present, ready to shed some crimson bodily fluids. So far, we’ve seen the return of two series favourites in Kung Lao and Reptile. And it looks like another fan favourite character is crossing over.

The newest character announced for the ever-expanding Mortal Combat X roster is none other than your favourite fighting reptile well…um, Reptile. Back to being more reptilian than human, Mortal Kombat X’s Reptile is a scaly dude – with some of his favourite moves returning.

I’m unnecessarily excited for Mortal Kombat X from Netherrealm. We recently learned that Kung Lao would be returning the in the new game, set a decade or two after the last one. It’ll also feature everyone’s favourite fan-wielding princess, Kitana. Here’s a brand new trailer with some brutally violent gameplay. You'll also get to see Goro and Kung Lao in action.

I think 2015 is going to be a fine year for gaming. Sure, most of your favourite 2014 games were delayed into 2015, but I still stand by my statement. One game that I’m looking forward to? That new Hatsune Miku idol game that I’m importing from Japan. But until that arrives, Mortal Kombat X will be a very close second for me.

I’m not sure if any of you are aware of the level of enthusiasm I have for Mortal Kombat X, the latest brutal brawler from NetherRealm. I got to play the game for the first time earlier this year ta Gamescom, and walked away rather impressed for somebody who favours Street Fighter’s mechanics and pace over Mortal Kombat. Like many of you, I also got to play it at this year’s rAge, which included the most recently revealed kombatant,  Quan-Chi. I’ve been watching Ed Boon’s Twitter like a crazed fan, waiting to see who’s coming next. By the looks of things, it may be Kenshi.

Mortal Kombat X is going to be featuring plenty of new faces when it arrives next year. But it’ll also have a few old favourites as well. And that includes your favourite hyper-albino sorceror supreme, Quan Chi. Check him out in action, with the latest trailer.

Some people were disappointed that the latest, PAX-centric build of the upcoming, terribly brutal fighting game from NetherRealms featured no new characters. That hasn’t stopped studio head and Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon from teasing who the next character would be.

22 years. 22 freakin’ years of blood, gore and someone getting their spine ripped out by an unlicensed ninja chiropractor. That’s how long Mortal Kombat has been around for, eating old 50 cent coins and eventually maturing into a massive tournament staple. That’s two decades of evolution, growth and carnage. And it all started with one game.

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.

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.

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.
