Of course Mortal Kombat would get its own Honest Trailer. With Assassin's Creed trying to repair the damage of the terrible video game movie adaptations that came before, it's the perfect time to look back at one of the most notorious of the bunch.Read More
Things We Saw Today: James Gunn Bets a Skeptical Fan Over Undiscovered Guardians of the Galaxy Easter Egg
Apparently, all of the Guardians of the Galaxy Easter eggs have been found save one--and when a brave commenter asserted that it might not even exist, director James Gunn bet him $100,000 smackeroos to prove otherwise. It's never wise to bet against the director of the actual movie.Read More

I used to beg my friend to select anyone but Bo’ Rai Cho, the fighter who could projectile vomit on command in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. When Bo’ Rai Cho stumbled closer to my chosen fighter, his round belly hanging over his pants, I held the block trigger on my controller and squeezed my eyes shut. I was afraid to look at the screen because I didn’t want to see Bo’ Rai Cho get sick.Read More

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.Read More
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.Read More
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.Read More
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?Read More

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 +?Read More
