EVO 2011: Wrap Up and Winner's Lists

For anyone that still wasn’t aware, though I’ve been trying my damnedest to provide hype for the last year, EVO (the king of fighting game tournaments) took place over this past weekend. Three full days of fighting games, tournaments, side-pots, drama and announcements galore were offered up from the fine people at Mad Catz, EVO 2K, Capcom, Atlus and others.

Fist-Bump or Bitch-Slap: Midway or "YouTube Jounalists"

This is the love/hate relationship between the video game industry and myself. Every week I will pick someone who gets my Fist-bump for doing a good deed, someone who gets my undesirable Bitch-Slap for doing something wrong (or just something that pisses me off), and I'll share my experience/opinion along the way.

Mortal Kombat Launch Party/Tournament [Vancouver]

Today signals the release of the 9th Mortal Kombat game, which hopes to be a reinvention of the series, while at the same bringing the series back to its roots by putting the weight of the title in behind what made the game originally popular back in the 90s: brutal hand-to-hand combat with lethal finishing moves and torrents of blood. To celebrate this momentous occasion, release parties were held around the globe, and luck for us at Shogun Gamer, one of them was in our own backyard.

Two fan-favorite characters join the roster of Mortal Kombat

Much to the delight of Mortal Kombat fans across the globe and Shogun Gamer community member Solidus Godzilla, the mysterious and highly buxom fan favorite Jade will be one of the many combatants in the upcoming Mortal Kombat game.

Witness the skill and hotness of Mileena in this new Mortal Kombat video

Finally it’s Friday and that of course means the weekend is upon us. While I probably won’t be able to fully relax this weekend (projects galore on my end), other folks out there can enjoy their time off and have a night out on the town. But what would someone do if they had a date with the femme fatale that is Mileena from Mortal Kombat? Armed with a pair of Sai’s and a deadly pair of chompers beneath that veil, Mileena may not be the easier Mortal Kombat character to please, but the NetherRealm Studios staff gives it a shot in this latest video.

First footage of Sonya Blade featured in new episode of the MKast

A few days ago I was somewhat complaining about how we hadn’t gotten a single piece of media for the new Mortal Kombat featuring Sonya Blade.  Our friends over in Europe got some snazzy screens of Sonya’s new look in the game, but we were left with nothing – that is until now.  The final part of the epic four part Mortal Kombat MKast is now up and it includes the very first footage of Sonya Blade in action.

Another classic character joins the ranks of the new Mortal Kombat game

I don’t know why folks over in Europe are getting the lowdown on major Mortal Kombat roster additions, but I guess more power to them for getting the goods first. After we were privy to seeing the first images of Sonya Blade in the new Mortal Kombat, today’s MK character update brings us two pieces of goodness: the first in-game images of Kratos and the confirmation of Sindel as a playable character.

Ed Boon gives us an interesting Mortal Kombat 9 tease

For the past couple months news on the next Mortal Kombat installment has been extremely cryptic. Outside of a few "solid" updates such as voice actor info, most of the MK9 news has come via MK co-creator Ed Boon. Actually I wouldn't call Boon's updates news since he's just teasing us via Twitter. But Boon has posted a few interesting tidbits and once again the MK co-creator has posted something that will have all the MK die-hards talking.

Yesterday Boon posted the following message on Twitter:
