Mortal Kombat creator can't 'de-confirm' more DLC characters in MKX, we may be seeing another kombat pack in the future

Mortal Kombat X is in the midst of its first Kombat Pack release -- a DLC option that grants players early access to four new fighters, costumes, and more. Although we already know that Jason Voorhees, Tanya, Tremor, and Predator are the first four downloadable characters to enter the Mortal Kombat universe, we're still left wondering if NetherRealm Studios has intentions to release even more fighters after the aforementioned characters become available.

One Twitter user asked Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon over on Twitter yesterday if he could "de-confirm" plans for another Kombat Pack in the future. He could not...

Judging by his response, there's a chance we may be seeing more DLC fighters added to Mortal Kombat X down the line. This wouldn't come as a surprise, considering that NRS first released four DLC characters in the Injustice: Gods Among Us season pack with two more fighters being added afterward.

If I had to guess which characters we'd see as DLC in Mortal Kombat X, I'd say Rain, Sindel, and Baraka have a good chance.

Check out Ed Boon's tweet below.

Another stage Brutality discovered in Mortal Kombat X, beware the dead body in The Kove

'Tis but a scratch!' Jason lives up to his undead reputation, even after losing his head and legs in this funny Mortal Kombat X glitch

One of Jason's variations in Mortal Kombat X, Unstoppable, allows him to come back after being knocked out. When he goes down in this variation, his body gets struck by lightning, his remaining meter is deposited into his health bar and gets up to fight again.

It seems as though developers may have not taken this into account when they created the Brutality mechanic, which allows a character to perform a kill move as their final hit in a match.

We're not sure if this applies to all Brutalities, but we have video of both Raiden and Kenshi killing Unstoppable Jason only to have the maimed killer get back up.

The game doesn't actually continue and the aggressors are both awarded the victory. Jason just kind of stands there awkwardly as if to say, "Well, what happens now?" The real question falls along the lines of whether or not you should be able to Brutality Jason before he is revived in this variation.

Despite meter gain glitch, Kung Lao will not be banned at Combo Breaker

Kung Lao has an exploitable glitch in Mortal Kombat X where he can gain a bar of meter all at once from a teleport if it's on wake up. It's brought up questions as to the use of the character in tournaments while the bug remains unfixed.

It seems that Combo Breaker, happening in Chicago this weekend, has made its ruling. Kung Lao will stay. With that said, this does come with some extra regulations.

To find out how they plan to address the issue and their justification, continue reading below.

New Mortal Kombat X bug; Kung Lao's teleport can build a bar of meter all at once, may keep him out of upcoming tournaments

Yet another meter building bug has been discovered in Mortal Kombat X. You may recall the recent Ermac meter drain glitch, which is to be hot fixed soon. This time around it's Kung Lao who's tapped into the fountain of meter with one of his special moves.

Watch Kung Lao's meter as he performs wake up teleport here:

A whole meter just for wake up teleport. What's more, Kung Lao can do this in any of his three variations so if tournament organizers want to keep it out of their events, they're going to have to ban the character entirely.

No official statements as to whether or not Kung Lao will be allowed in tournaments have been made as of yet, but bans have been placed on characters with similar glitches in the past, recall Ermac's Spectral bug.

Blanche's second Brutality is a geriatric gore fest...

With the update patch a few days ago, Mortal Kombat X received a new Brutality featuring everyone's interact-able stage grandma, Blanche.

What we didn't realize was there is a whole second Blanche Brutality, which you can execute by holding down when you finish your opponent.

While the first was satisfying enough, the second brings about a whole new level of ridiculousness and hilarity that syncs up perfectly with Mortal Kombat's brand of shock humor.

We don't feel quite as bad throwing the poor old woman around anymore, now knowing that she has a a violent and brutal nature of her own. The icing on top of this new finishing move is certainly the battle cry Blanche makes as she finishes off your opponent for you.

Learn hellish vortex combos for Inferno Scorpion, 33-hit combos with Special Ops Sonya and safe Sharpen set ups for Kitana in today's MK round up

We have plenty of interesting Mortal Kombat X tech for you in another MKX round up.

Today's round up features Sonya, Scorpion, Kitana and Sub-Zero as they show off practical combos, set ups and strategies.

Sonya, for instance, can actually perform a 33 hit combo when her drone is out by using her Park Drone move to cancel the animation of her normal. Certainly a demoralizing sequence for your opponent as they sit helplessly and watch their character get beat on for a good 15 seconds or so.

Beyond this, we get to see some scary vortex combos from Scorpion, Cryomancer combos from Sub-Zero and Sharpen set up combos from Assassin Kitana.

Saturday morning nightmares; ProJared takes a nostalgic look back at some of Mortal Kombat's less than awesome cartoons from your childhood

Time for a trip down memory lane. You twenty-something 90's kids might recall the Mortal Kombat hype that hit around the release of the first feature film. Toys, films and television shows became abundant as media makers saw a gold mine in cheap spin offs of people's favorite new twist on the fighting game genre.

Mortal Kombat: The Journey Begins, a promotional short film, and Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm, an animated television series, were two such auxiliary titles that, upon revisiting, weren't the best of representations for the MK franchise.

As a huge fan of the taboo Mortal Kombat, I wasn't supposed to play as a child, getting to watch these less-violent cartoons was always a highlight of my week. ProJared has created a video wherein he takes a look back at these not-so-stellar attempts to garner hype for the Mortal Kombat brand.

Terrible animation, even for its time, and blatant reuses of action sequences made the VHS film "The Journey Begins" something of a pain to watch. Defenders of the Realm was riddled with problems of its own. Terrible catch phrases, forgettable story lines and empty characters made for a quick, single season run.

'I feel like it was too soon for a patch, it did not address the larger issues,' Tom Brady talks Quan Chi, Sub-Zero nerfs, and more

Last time, we learned that Shinnok may have jumped to the top 10 or higher with his improvements. Continuing our talk with MK Tom Brady about the latest Mortal Kombat X patch, we were given more thoughts on different characters that have seen potential improvements and how some adjustments may have fallen short this time around.

Brady told us that although this patch did improve some characters and normalize others, he feels an update was premature.

"I feel like it was too soon for a patch and that it did not address the larger issues," said Brady. "The option selects are still in the game, which completely remove any need to hit confirm and gives characters like Erron Black a safe 50/50."

"Issues like that are much bigger issues and should have been addressed before any individual character touches," he continued.

He went on to discuss the alterations made to Quan Chi -- a character that many feel is arguably the best in the game due to the mix up potential in his Summoner variation.

Kane BlueRiver's Hulk has smashes, HoneyBee's D'Vorah has... bees and Team EG has it out for each other in these Toryuken 4 highlights

Toronto's 4th Toryuken has officially ended, but we're reliving some of the more intense moment's from this weekend's tournament in our highlight recap. We've grabbed a few moments from Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat X and, of course, Ultra Street Fighter 4.

UMVC3

Our first highlight comes from the Winners Finals match between EG|Justin Wong and BE|Kane BlueRiver. Match one, round one, right out of the gate KBR's Hulk sets the pace by smacking Justin's Akuma assist with a KO in the first 4 seconds of the round.

Unfortunately for KBR, he would later find himself having to play in the losers bracket against CTRL|RayRay. In a dire situation with only Haggar left to try to take on RayRay's Magneto-led team, KBR makes an amazing play. Surrounded by the chaos of assist missiles, drones, lasers and Magneto, Kane BlueRiver spots an opportune time to simply go for a level 3 super. Situation dealt with.
