  2. Mortal Kombat X Women to Be More Realistically Proportioned, Still Probably Wear Absurd Outfits

    #WomenAreTooHardToClothe

    Physically smaller amount of boob to objectify equals less sexism? That's how math works, right?

  3. A Great Big List of Games from E3 with Playable Female Characters

    All aboard the hype train!

    Like many of you, me and my fellow Weekend Editor Sam Maggs and I were more than a little irked by the whole Ubisoft kerfuffle earlier this week. It almost made us forget about that long ago time (last Monday) when we were really excited about the stuff coming out of E3. Then we realized...we're still excited! And though female representation still has a long way to go in the gaming industry, we're happy to report there are plenty of other upcoming games that include playable female characters.

  4. Fatality! The Mortal Kombat Franchise Gets The Brutal Honest Trailers Treatment

    But Mortal Kombat X is going to be great, though... right?

    So we know Mortal Kombat X is coming in 2015, which is (hopefully) going to be awesome. But it would be irresponsible for us to forget Mortal Kombat's legacy of excellent games and live-action re-makes - and, you know. All the Mortal Kombat games, movies, and TV shows that have been just the absolute worst. Honest Trailers is here to remind us.

  5. Mortal Kombat X Game Details Come With Preorder Availability and Box Art

    Really, though, we all just want to rip people's spines out with next-gen graphics, right?

    So far, we've only gotten a glimpse of what Mortal Kombat X has up its sleeves (aside from deadly spears and the severed spines of its enemies), but it was enough to get us speculating about what the game might be like. Now, we've got some details alongside its preorder release.

  6. The Mortal Kombat X Trailer Sure Looks Great, But Does It Tell Us Anything?

    Aside from, "Get over here," that is.

    If you didn't already know, Mortal Kombat X got a trailer yesterday, and people seem pretty excited about it. I can understand why, seeing as the fight in the trailer is a lot of fun to watch, features fan-favorite characters, and is also incredibly pretty to look at, even when it's gross. But does it say anything about the game?

  10. Eliza Dushku Kicks Butt In Machinima’s New Sci-Fi Short, The Gable 5

    For science...you monster

    From director Kevin Tancharoen, of Mortal Kombat: Legacy fame (not to mention brother of SHIELD's Maurissa Tancharoen) comes another Machinima original. It's definitely got a sci-fi bent, I got a slight Portal vibe, but Tancharoen calls it, “a sci-fi, futuristic version of The Truman Show.” Besides Eliza Dushku doing what she does best, it also features a few other familiar faces. Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

    As we all know, there are dozens of different bad-ass varieties. This is all of those.

  15. Game of Thrones‘ Kit Harington to Star in Disaster Pic Pompeii

    You know nothing Jon Snow

    Hmmm… so the history and Game of Thrones nerd corners of my brain are happy about this, but the film nerd part… not so much. That's because Pompeii is being directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, and  The Hollywood Reporter says he's "making a period adventure movie and taking a Titanic approach, anchoring it with a love story." Oy.

  16. “Sonya Blade” Wants to fight for you… as an Illinois County Board Member!

    If performer-politicians like former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and senator Al Franken have shown us anything, it's that having a certain amount of public notoriety doesn't hurt when you're running for public office. It's curious, then, to see that Kerri Hoskins Branson, a candidate running for a seat on the board in Kane county, Illinois, doesn't seem to be publicizing her fifteen minutes of fame. You may not recognize the name, but you may remember Ms. Branson for her roles as a cheerleader in the original NBA Jam and, more importantly, the motion capture/likeness for Sonya Blade in Mortal Kombat 3.

  17. Mortal Kombat Characters Troll New York City Through the Art of Dance [Video]

    The first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Mortal Kombat is flash dancing, right? Well, that's at least what comes to this group's hive mind, because they dress up as characters from the venerable fighting series, carry around a boombox, and dance dance dance their hearts away across New York City. I couldn't think of a better way to have my day ruined.

  18. Reboot Retrospective: Mortal Kombat

    I have fond memories of the original Mortal Kombat. I was a bit too young for the arcade but that didn’t stop the youngest of my father’s brothers and my oldest cousins from bringing around the cartridge. To me, Mortal Kombat was the game that my uncle schooled me in with that code that turned blood on. My father found the gory combat a bit… much. That didn’t stop me from hitting ABACABB when he wasn’t around. My attachment to the franchise only grew stronger as I grew older. While I didn’t own the second or third installment, my friends did. I’d spend the night with others just to use their SNES. They’d suggest going out and playing tag and I would carefully explain why we should instead play games inside. Sub-Zero and Stryker were my weapons of choice. Some folks lump those who play fighting games into one solid group when, in reality, there are many different camps involved. For example, we weren’t Street Fighter kids; we were Mortal Kombat kids. Somehow, this divide still seems to continue despite all rhyme or reason. I haven’t played Street Fighter for any length of time since my Sega Genesis saw regular play. So you can imagine the kind of nostalgic baggage I bring to the table when I say that I have mixed feelings about the latest installment of Mortal Kombat.

  19. Portal Kombat! [Video]

    A good chunk of our readership is probably rushing home from work or school to play Portal 2 at the end of the day today, if they didn't already call in sick to do so. But hey: Mortal Kombat 9 also hit shelves today, to generally pretty good reviews. In honor of the retail conundrum presented by the games' simultaneous release and also by the undeniable fact that "Mortal" rhymes with "Portal," The Game Station has put out a new video mashing up the two games and inventing portalities in the process. (Thanks Dar!)

  20. Secret Character Auditions for Mortal Kombat [Video]

    Released by the online video crew Machinima, the above video showcases the lost tapes for character auditions for Mortal Kombat, featuring venerable game characters, such as Link, Mario, what appears to be James Worthy from NBA Jam, and even Arthur from Ghouls 'n Ghosts, among others. Machinima explains:

    Even before Kratos, several characters have auditioned for roles in previous Mortal Kombat games. Most never made the cut, and those audition tapes were previously thought to be lost...Until now.

    The chest opening tune playing while Link rips out a heart isn't anything less than awesome. Now, if only this weren't a hilarious parody.
