Look out! Here comes the Spider-Man! Let’s be honest, Spidey has not had the easiest time being adapted to the big screen. While the Sam Raimi/Tobey Maguire trilogy and even the Marc Webb/Andrew Garfield films have their fans, they had their share of critics too. 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...

RossAmazingSpiderMan1.1“With great power comes great responsibility.” Those words have become one of the great American pop culture sayings. I can’t truly know for sure that when Stan Lee and Steve Ditko created this skinny, unconventional hero in a red and blue unitard if they quite knew he would become a worldwide sensation. Or if those words would come to mean so much to so many people. Actually, there’s no way they could have. But we can thank them that they did bring Spider-Man into all of our lives. Read more...

InjusticeScorpionDLC610The rumors are true! Scorpion, the famed yellow ninja from the Mortal Kombat video game series is indeed a DLC character in Injustice: Gods Among Us, the hit DC Comics Fighting game! How so?! Well, Injustice IS developed by NetherRealm the studio that now makes the MK series and Ed Boon, the creator of MK, so Ed and the boys have decided to throw one of their own beloved characters into the mix, and have him using his trademark rope & spear to have guys like Batman and Superman to, well, "GET OVER HERE!" And hey, it's not like it's the first time Scorpion has fought some of these guys! Remember 2008's Mortal Kombat vs. The DC Universe?! Consider this Scorpy's payback for all of those batarangs to the face!   Read more...

mortal-kombat-legacy-season-2-logoGET OVER HERE! It's the highly anticipated return of the live-action webseries, Mortal Kombat Legacy, and it looks to be as action-packed  as the last season! This whole phenomenon started when eager filmmaker Kevin Tancharoen made a fan-film based on the legendary fighting game, Mortal Kombat called Mortal Kombat: Rebirth. It was a gritty and dark re-branding of the MK universe, featuring real Hollywood actors like Michael Jai White (Spawn, Black Dynamite) and Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine from Star Trek: Voyager) as Jax and Sonya Blade. The whole idea was to convince Warner Bros. that a Mortal Kombat reboot film was possible and most importantly, it could be actually a cool video game movie! (What a concept!) Read more...
