Injustice: Gods Among Us was only just the beginning. NetherRealm, the same video game studio that develops the Mortal Kombat series has yet another blockbuster Fighter franchise on their hands. Injustice delves into an alternate DC Universe where Earth’s greatest hero, Superman, becomes the type of tyrannical villain he was once sworn to oppose after he executes The Joker. The snowball effect of that event creates a world where our heroes and villains are drastically changed and the status quo of the DC Universe is flipped upside down. The first game’s story mode had the heroes of a more familiar Earth come to help Batman’s rebels battle Superman’s regime, but this new installment shows us the aftermath of that story. A new threat emerges as Brainiac (who is responsible for the destruction of Krypton in this reality) attacks Earth’s cities and enlists the world’s vilest menaces to aide him. Read more...

For me, there were no fighting games until Mortal Kombat came along. I had played Street Fighter II with my brother on the joint SNES we received at Christmas but I was never a huge fan. Sure, the combat system was pretty fluid and the level of skill required to truly master a character (I chose Vega, as a rule, so was often caught of guard following a flurry of jumping attacks) was definitely a challenge but I wanted more. In came Mortal Kombat. We had to convince my parents that we would always play without using the infamous Blood Code (obviously we never did!) and I quickly fell in love with the game, its characters, its lore and the fighting skill. Mortal Kombat operated a differently balanced control system and, combined with Fatalities (and later Brutalities, Friendship and even Babalities), I still believe takes more skill to effectively master and play proficiently. Mortal Kombat has always been a lot of fun. Whether it’s due to the controversy it has always courts upon its release, the gameplay style or the overall aesthetics of the game, Mortal Kombat keeps its appeal to this day. In fact, Mortal Kombat X may be the best iteration yet… Read more...

OK, the columnists at ENR would be a bunch of liars if none us admitted that there was only one game we’re excited about this year… Mortal Kombat X. You thought I was going to say Arkham Knight, didn’t you? As much as we’re hyped up for Batman, nothing makes our news desks hum with anticipation more than the promise of Dave Michaels and I being able to rip out each other’s spleen, break our journalistic jaws and spear each other with rusty, metal chains while shouting “GET OVER HERE!” And believe us; C-Man likes nothing more than to see his news team happy… The last month has brought us many, many reveals for Mortal Kombat X. So far, this game readily boasts one of the largest playable casts of any beat ‘em-up ever made as well as a triad of fighting styles for each character which effectively trebles the already impressive array of options and play-styles already available.

Scorpion_low_5436cc64db5026.52421479As a youth, there are several key moments in my life that I can gauge by video game releases at the time. One of the most important was the move to high school. It was a time when boys became slightly older boys; cheekily raiding Dad’s liquor cabinet led to engagements with the porcelain throne, we discovered that smoking wasn’t as cool as it looked in the movies and that girls were the most beautiful and mysterious creatures ever to walk the Earth. All those things were minor distractions compared to the video game release of the time – Mortal Kombat. I remember the advertisement all too well. Hundreds of kids ran through the streets of some major city in the States (New York, I believe), they raced down alleys and all met in a central junction. One of the kids raises the cartridge above his head and screams “MORTAL KOMBAT!” to the sky. I was sold and I had no idea what the game was. Read more...

  bleediesThat’s right, Bleeder Nation, it’s that time again! It’s that special event that we all wait with baited breath where I, your jolly Bleeder King rounds the year up for comic book fans by giving out completely fabricated awards to the best comics, movies, games, writers and artists and whoever else I want! It’s the third annual Bleedies, and there was so many wacky events in comics and comic themed mediums I don’t even know where to begin. There was just so much happening! For most people 2013 will be remembered as the year of Miley Cyrus twerking at the VMAs,“The Pride of Canada”, Rob Ford, the Obamacare saga, that What Does The Fox Say song, and the dreaded two-headed monster only  known as “Kimye”. But for us? The purveyors of geekdom? Well, it was the year of Henry Cavill and his super-chest hair, Villains Month 3D covers, Battfleck and quite a few comics with SEX in the title. Do you know what it’s like to work in a place where it’s totally cool to yell out “HAS ANYONE SEEN THE LATEST SEX?!” Or asking the question, “who is loving Sex Criminals?” Well, I do. And it’s awesome. Read more...
