Tanya Joins The Mortal Kombat X Roster On June 2

28 May 2015 8:23 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Fans of NetherRealm’s well-received and hugely successful Mortal Kombat X rejoice; the game’s second Dlc character, Tanya, will be punching and kicking her way onto the roster starting next week. Owners of the Kombat Pack will be able to grab the shiny new fighter a week earlier, on June 2, with everyone else being able to download her a week later on June 9 for the same price as previous Dlc character, Jason Vorhees.

NetherRealm’s decision to include Tanya as one of the four already-announced Dlc characters has been questioned by some fans for her relative obscurity in comparison to other series stalwarts, especially as there’s still the likes of the screaming, hair-whipping Sindel – who you also tussle with in the game’s story mode – waiting in the wings for her time to shine.

But hey, it’s still early days yet as far as additional content is concerned. »

10 Reasons ‘Kung Fury’ Was the Most Awesome Project in Cannes

27 May 2015 10:31 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

While the attention of most Cannes journalists was fixed on George Miller’s adrenaline-rush “Mad Max: Fury Road,” or trying to make sense of the fight sequences in Hou Hsiao-Hsien’s “The Assassin” (where rivals dance around a bit, bow and then walk off into the woods), a select group of people were having their minds blown by “Kung Fury,” a 30-minute homage to all things ’80s — from Chuck Norris to Cannon films, “Street Fighter” graphics to its synthesizer pop score. After premiering last Friday in Directors’ Fortnight at Cannes, the short hits YouTube this Thursday, and the world will never be the same. Here’s 10 reasons why:

1. It Takes a Foreigner to Truly Appreciate the Insanity of American ’80s Entertainment

Writer-director David Sandberg was born in Sweden. “My family didn’t have cable when I grew up, so I missed out on a lot on the great television shows from the ’80s, »

Warner Bros. Interactive Postpones Mortal Kombat X On PS3 And Xbox 360 Once Again

27 May 2015 7:10 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Despite arriving to a warm reception on current-gen systems and PC, there’s a cloud of doubt brewing above the head of Mortal Kombat X‘s PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions. Prior to the brawler’s April release, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive pushed the port to June 2 in order to allocate all available resources to the current-gen and PC renditions.

However, with the rescheduled release date now right around the corner, it appears as though the company has quietly postponed the port again, which has slipped from June 2 to an unspecified date in the fall. First picked up by Kotaku, the outlet reports that a series of retailers have altered their online listings to reflect this delay, with GameStop in particular changing the release date from next Tuesday to December 31 – a fail-safe that connotes Warner isn’t ready to release further details.

There’s no rhyme or reason as to why »

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Outpaces Battlefield To Become Biggest UK Launch Of 2015

26 May 2015 9:30 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Critical praise for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is beginning to be reflected in the threequel’s sales figures, now that CD Projekt Red’s gargantuan RPG has secured the biggest UK launch for 2015 hitherto.

Outpacing the likes of Dying Light, Bloodborne and Visceral Games’ Battlefield Hardline – which held the title until Wild Hunt‘s arrival – retail analyst Chart-Track brings word that sales for CD Projekt Red’s title were 53% up on Hardline, and an eye-watering 608% more than those accumulated by The Witcher III: Assassin of Kings back in 2012. An overwhelmingly positive debut, then.

Chart-Track detailed some additional information regarding The Witcher III: Wild Hunt‘s launch, revealing that PlayStation 4 accounted for 63% of the sales, with Xbox One and PC making up the remainder of the figures. As for Destiny’s House of Wolves expansion, there’s no data to report on the sophomore add-on as the company doesn’t »

Is Jaden Smith Starring in Static Shock?

26 May 2015 8:38 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Will Smith is playing Deadshot in Suicide Squad. Jada Pinkett Smith played Fish Mooney on Gotham. Now the DC Comics world may have hooked another member of the Smith family. Speaking to Flicks and the City about superheroes, actor Tyler James Williams (Dear White People) noted how “it’s great to see Static Shock is happening with Jaden.” We last reported on Static Shock back in October when Warner Bros. announced that its digital division would be developing series based on the DC Comics along with Mortal Kombat and Critters. Django Unchained producer Reginald Hudlin is taking the lead on the Static Shock series, which will feature Virgil Hawkins, aka the superhero “Static”, who has advanced powers of electromagnetism. [caption id="attachment_250342" align="alignright" width="350"] Image via Sony Pictures[/caption] We should definitely take Williams’ comment with a grain of salt. It’s possible that a game of telephone has become a little screwy and that »

Mortal Kombat X creator says Tanya Dlc will arrive in June

25 May 2015 9:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Creator of the Mortal Kombat series, Ed Boon, has just announced via Twitter that the long awaited Tanya Dlc should become available for Mortal Kombat X in early June.

Boon took to Twitter in response to a fan’s tweet questioning when the Dlc would become available.

“@sub_zero_aj: @noobde can we get some news.on tanya ?? pic.twitter.com/kPCcOSwIKI Eb: She's koming soon, In early June, Or my name ain't Boon.

Ed Boon (@noobde) May 24, 2015

Despite the fact that Boon failed to give a specific release date, fans can still rest fairly easy in the knowledge that they should have access to the new character in the coming weeks.

On top of this, Tanya isn’t the only Dlc character up for grabs in NetherRealm’s latest beat ‘em up. With Jason Voorhees already available to play, and both Predator and Tremor on their way, Mortal Kombat »

Weekly News Roundup: Bowser finds new employment, lawsuits galore, and more

25 May 2015 12:22 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Press the pause button and stretch those fingers: it’s time to roundup the news that you might have missed from the world of gaming this week.

Nintendo of America has hired a member of the Bowser family to take over as the vice president of sales in the United States. The Guardian reported that Doug Bowser, formerly of EA, joined the Nintendo family this week and nearly broke the internet. Everyone had a giggle about the happy coincidence, including Doug Bowser himself. Let’s just hope that this isn’t some long con by King Koopa to finally get his revenge on Mario.

Rockstar is suing BBC over an unauthorized documentary concerning the Grand Theft Auto series, according to IGN. Here’s what Rockstar’s parent company, Take-Two Interactive, had to say.

20 May 2015 10:54 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whether it’s Super Smash Bros. or Mortal Kombat, Tekken or Street Fighter, almost every fighting game is celebrated for its eccentric roster.

Weekly News Roundup: An Xbox One victory, new ‘Assassin’s’, and more

17 May 2015 7:54 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Press the pause button and stretch those fingers: it’s time to roundup the news that you might have missed from the world of gaming this week.

Horror fans are still reeling over the cancellation of Silent Hills, and so is Guillermo del Toro. CinemaBlend reported Guillermo del Toro has caught wind of the Silents Hills petition and is willing to add his name to the list. Mr. del Toro shared his hope for the games revival, but the chances of that happening are slim to none at this point. That doesn’t mean del Toro has given up on games. It was accidentally confirmed that del Toro’s movie studio would be working on a cinematic trailer for Fallout 4 according to the Nerdist. Although this does not mean del Toro will be involved in the project, it does mean that Fallout 4 is indeed happening.

CD Projekt Red has a million reasons to celebrate. »

Brock Lesnar In Assassin’s Creed Syndicate?

15 May 2015 10:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Ubisoft

Former WWE and Ufc champion Brock Lesnar has turned up in the most unlikely of places – in concept art for the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Syndicate.

The latest game in the Assassin’s Creed series, Syndicate is set for a fall release. The appearance of a character clearly resembling Lesnar was first noticed by Kotaku, and the evidence is pretty compelling: the character in question has a tattoo on his back almost identical to The Beast Incarnate.

Even more interesting is who “Lesnar” is fighting in the game, at least in the screenshots released to date: a character with tribal tattoos very similar to those of Frank Mir, Lesnar’s longtime Ufc rival, and who he was linked to a fight with prior to deciding to hang up his Mma gloves for good and commit to the WWE from here on out.

So, will this be an Easter egg staying in the game, »

Latest Mortal Kombat X Patch Sets Its Sights On Character-Specific Issues Across PS4, Xbox One

14 May 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm are putting the final touches on the latest patch for acclaimed fighter Mortal Kombat X, which will release for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game later today.

Placing a heavy emphasis on gameplay tweaks, along with character-specific fixes, the update will make its debut first on PS4 before permeating to Microsoft’s current-gen system. Currently, neither publisher or developer have detailed a specific timeframe for the Xbox One patch, though we’ll update this post when we hear anything official.

In terms of the update itself, Mortal Kombat X users can look forward to matchmaking improvements within the game’s online segment, coupled with a fix to an exploit that allow brawlers to consistently block attacks while still damaging their opponents.

There’s a whole host of patch notes over on NetherRealm’s official site. Here, we’ve cherry-picked the gameplay fixes for you to consult. »

NBC’s 2015-16 Season: Check Out Photos from Blindspot, The Player, Superstore, and More

10 May 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

To quote one of the bad guys from Mortal Kombat: It has begun! In anticipation of this week's upfronts schedule, NBC dropped an announcement of their 2015-16 lineup, including hugely anticipated bows of series such as Game of Silence, People Are Talking, and Blindspot, the latest mystery series from the intensely busy Greg Berlanti. A lot of the material sounds, at the very least, interesting, but considering this being a visual medium and all, pictures speak much more than words. So, NBC has offered us a hefty look at the season of premieres that will be up for viewing upon the kick-off of the 2015-16 season, after already getting our first glimpse at Heroes Reborn. The pictures also cover Superstore, a new workplace comedy starring America Ferrera; The Player, an action-drama teaming Wesley Snipes with Philip Winchester; Heartbreaker, about one of the few female heart surgeons in the world, »

Watch all fatalities in ‘Mortal Kombat X’

10 May 2015 11:53 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Remember when the U.S. government decided to step in and stop violence in video games? Back in 1992, Mortal Kombat was considered so violent it led to the 1993 Congressional Hearings on violence in gaming, which ultimately resulted in the creation of the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (Esrb) in 1994. The series is known for high levels of blood and gore, including, most notably, its fatalities, and with each installment, the creators continue to push the boundaries of the gruesome finishers. As expected, the newly released tenth installment of the popular fighting game franchise features the most graphic finishers in the series yet, but is it too much for most gamers to stomach? Several critics and gamers have suggested they’ve gone too far this time, eliminating the mix of dark winking humour featured in the original series, and settling for a mean-spirited game instead.  What do you think? If you haven’t played the game, »

You Won’t Believe What Yoshimitsu Looks Like In Tekken 7

8 May 2015 7:34 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Namco

Yoshimitsu’s like the Wes Borland of gaming – as when Limp Bizkit’s costume-swapping guitarist is coming up with millions of ways to look like some axe-wielding hellspawn with a penchant for tapped notes, so to is Yoshi appearing in increasingly crazy garb through every subsequent Tekken sequel.

First it was Tekken 4’s buglike appearance that made him look like something you’d tackle in Dark Souls, then T5 was straight-up Predator in its dreadlock-topped aesthetic, before 6 went for the whole ‘undead samurai’ thing.

Namco

Now with 7 Namco must be looking to max out the crazy scales whilst ticking the box for “Random next gen add-on”, as the Yoshimitsu of 2015 essentially looks like a crazy Platinum Games-spin on Pirates of the Caribbean’s Davy Jones – which is to say he’s essentially part-squid – complete with many flailing tentacles.

As for the game itself, in the above footage there are »

10 Worst Fatalities In Mortal Kombat History

7 May 2015 6:31 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

NetherRealm

Mortal Kombat’s 13-year, ten-game history (excluding rubbish spinoffs like Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero) is built on blood and bones. Gore has been the main focus of Mk’s appeal ever since its inception back in 1992, courting mainstream controversy with each release as bloodthirsty fans clamouring for increasingly unique and gruesome ways to dispatch their foes.

Equally tricky to pull off as they were visually shocking, the ability to burn your opponent down to their skeleton while a malevolent voice congratulated you was what made Mk a must-buy, and try as the game developers might, the mechanics of a Mortal Kombat game have always come second to these jaw-dropping fatalities. Children growing up in arcades would have their favourites down pat, and could probably perform them in their sleep. Down, Forward, Back, Back, High Kick… you know how it goes.

But with greatness must also come disappointment and a »

Robocop Live-Action Web Series From Machinima Announced

6 May 2015 5:04 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Machinima is rolling out an ambtious new slate of programming with such titles as Starman, Dial H for Hero and Justice League: Gods and Monsters leading the way.  However, the most ambitious project may be a live-action RoboCop series that imagines not one...but a whole police force full of RoboCops.  Check out the details below. RoboCop returns to Delta City where viewers ride along with the now standard-issue RoboCop officers as they respond to calls from dispatch. Tapping into current themes of the surveillance state, the series is shot from the first person point of view of the RoboCop officers’ heads up display, along with security cameras, dash-cams, and drones. There's no official word yet on whether the web series will have connections to the 1987 RoboCop film starring Peter Weller or the 2014 reboot starring Joel Kinniman.   With successful web series adaptations of Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter, perhaps Machinima »
