Kano leaked in Mortal Kombat X

Although Ed Bon has been hinting that the next character reveal for Mortal Kombat X would be at Gamescom later this month it seems that we have gotten our wish a little earlier than expected. German magazine GamePro has screenshots of the latest character who is showing off a flying knee move and has Wrestling stated as one of his variations. Kano is one of the most commonly known and iconic Mortal Kombat characters and he was not confirmed to be dead in the Mortal Kombat 9 storyline so his inclusion is not very surprising but the magazine leak was unexpected.

Nintendo Games That Deserve a Second Life

66836-Super_Smash_Bros._Melee_(Europe)_(En,Fr,De,Es,It)-5

Nintendo has steadily been releasing it’s classic titles since the Wii came out in 2006, and even now with current re-releases such as Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Starfox 64, and Pokemon’s Ruby and Sapphire. It got me thinking about other games I would like to see revived onto a new-gen system.

Here’s some titles that I think deserve a second life:

 

  • Super Smash Bros Melee – Without a doubt the fan favorite of this entire series, I would love to see this available for purchase on the Wii U or 3DS market. I would keep game play and functionality the same, but maybe updated graphics similar to SSBB.

A Look Into Super Smash Bros. 4 at Comic-Con

smash bros banner

Another year, another mob of people clogging the streets of downtown San Diego as they attend Comic-con 2014, one of the biggest video game, comic book, and pop-culture events in the world. The main floor is always jam packed with booths and attractions. People all over hawk their wares; artists sell their great works, and game and movie developers premier their trailers for the next great blockbuster. Of the many game demos available at Comic-con, I was most attracted to the new Super Smash Bros. game that was playable on the 3DS at the Capcom booth and on the Wii U as well at the Nintendo lounge in the Marriott hotel. What I soon discovered was the chance the Smash Bros. team was giving to win a T-shirt. All you had to do was beat a single-player mode then win in a 4-player free-for-all match. The event went on every day with the only restriction that the event withdrew from the convention floor to the Nintendo lounge on Sunday. I was unable to win a shirt, but it was a rather fun way of getting a first look at the new game.
