History Of Weapons In The Mortal Kombat Games

by Roy Arkon on Jul 29, 2022 :: 0
The fighting game genre had weapon-based fighting styles being used and showcased across multiple games and across multiple franchises, and the Mortal Kombat franchise is one of them. While it was never a full-on weaon-based series like Soul Calibur or Samurai Shodown, MK had weapons being used for the vast majority of it's games and for a vast majority of characters in the series, with the weapons having their level of usage, visibility and gameplay impact being changed from game to game, and in some cases, from character to character.

In his newest video, Ketchup breaks down everything that weapons have brought to the MK series, from Mortal Kombat II all the way to Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate.

Author's note: Technically speaking, the MK series started to have weapons since Mortal Kombat 1, but it was only with Scorpion and Kano and with only 1 special move each (Scorpion's Spear and Kano's Knife Toss), while MK2 was the game that really gave the signs of things to come for the series as the concept of weapons has been used for more characters and not only way more than just one special move, but Fatalities as well.

Check out the video from Ketchup below, enjoy:

NRS/WB Hire Two Pro Players As QA Testers

by Roy Arkon on May 21, 2022 :: 0
Ryan Walker and Ryan Dedomenico, also known by their player tags as Dragon and Big D respectively, are two competitive pro fighting game players who specialize in NetherRealm Studios/Warner Bros. games, and have played in various tournaments for both the Mortal Kombat and Injustice games.

A couple of days ago, both Walker and Dedomenico have individually announced on Twitter that they were hired by NRS/WB as QA testers.
This is not the first time that a pro player was hired by NRS/WB, as Stephanie "16-Bit" Brownback and Aaron "Dizzy" Davis are also former competitive players who were hired by NRS/WB. Brownback works for the company as the lead QA analyst and also is a co-host in the NRS Kombat Kast, while Davis works as a senior designer. Both of them already contributed so much to both MK and IJ games, and now that Walker and Dedomenico have joined the team as well, they surely will contribute to them just as much.

Congratulations to both Ryan Walker and Ryan Dedomenico for joining NetherRealm Studios/WB Games.

Was Cyber-Smoke Being Revealed For MK11U By WB Games?

by Roy Arkon on Feb 8, 2022 :: 3
The official WB Games UK & Ireland Twitter page has posted a fun little Tweet in which in they ask the followers which of Kotal Kahn's Fatalities in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate they think is more brutal. However, what really caught people's eyes weren't the Fatalities themselves, but which character the Fatalities were executed on, and that character was none other than the grey male Ninja and Lin Kuei warrior, Smoke, particularity in his Cyber-Smoke version. As we all know, not only that Smoke isn't playable in MK11U, but he never appears in the game in his Cyber-Smoke version at all, yet he does appear in his Human-Smoke form both via Shang Tsung's transformations and also in Rain's Power Washer Fatality.

As of posting these news, the Tweet has been taken down. However, UnCagedGamez managed to catch the Tweet right in time and gave his own speculation on the matter, claiming that this is either just a a model for Smoke for MK11U that never got released to the public, a fan-made mod that NetheRealm Studios and WB Games have put in MK11U just for fun, or maybe that this is a tease for Cyber-Smoke making it to Mortal Kombat 12. Check out the video below:

Author's opinion: Obviously, Smoke isn't playable in MK11U, and he's not gonna be playable as it has been confirmed that MK11U support is done, but there is no way that this Cyber-Smoke model would be used just for fun. And it also can't be a mod either, one it was the last time that any gaming developer and/or publisher has used a fan-made mod just for show? And yes, I'm aware that it looks like a recolored version of Sektor (who is in MK11U's story mode as an NPC) and it uses the voice of RoboCop (who is voiced by Peter Weller), but if this thing was truly a mod, NRS/WB would never use it. I do have my guess on the matter though, and that this is Cyber-Smoke from an undiscovered secret fight in MK11U. As we reported last week, there are still some undiscovered secrets no only in MK11U, but also in Mortal Kombat XL and Injustice 2, and this could be very well be one of those undiscovered secrets, being a secret fight in MK11U that we are yet to discover on our own, and WB Games just teased it for us. And because that this is used for a secret fight, re-using assests such as model of another character after recoloring it plus another character's voice wouldn't be too much of a problem for them to do. I mean, remember all of the secret fights in Mortal Kombat 9 (2011) against Reptile, Noob Saibot, Jade and Human-Smoke? All of the secret fights in that game are against character who essentially re-using assets and mixing them all up, which means that NRS/WB can easily do it this time as well, which in my opinion debunks the fan-made mod argument as well. Whatever the case may be, we might never know for sure what this truly is, but maybe we will. All we can do right now is wait, and if we thing, figure this one out.
