'There are only two reasons you'd ever use X-ray in tournament' - Ketchup and Mustard teach meter management in episode two of 'Casual to Competitive'

We posted episode one of Ketchup and Mustard's 'Casual to Competitive' Mortal Kombat X training series, and you guys ate it up.

We're back today with episode two, wherein the MK pros teach us the ways of meter management in MKX. They start with the basics, discussing how special moves work and how you can enhance them by using the meter that you build throughout the match.

This tutorial isn't simply for beginners, as K and M delve into some deeper theories regarding meter. As an example, one of the sub-topics they cover is the meter-costly X-ray. Though the X-ray appears to be an incredibly powerful tool at first, you can get the same 30%-40% you'd get from a combo using only a single bar of meter.

The twins also cover Stamina and when to utilize the Combo Breaker mechanic. Hit the jump to see the video.

We have some intriguing concept art from the development days of Mortal Kombat X.

We've had some time with the game now, and we've gotten somewhat used to the appearance of MKX's cast. It's interesting to see what might have been, and what still could be, that developers tossed around when initially creating these characters.

'Quan Chi, in my opinion, is unchanged, just like Kung Jin; Sonya became more fair' - Perfect Legend talks Kung Lao improvements and more

Last time, we caught up with MK Tom Brady to pick his brain about the latest Mortal Kombat X patch. We also had the opportunity to speak with long-time Mortal Kombat champion RZR|Perfect Legend about Mortal Kombat X's first large update, and he had quite a bit to say.

Perfect Legend did not hesitate to give us the scoop on his Mortal Kombat main.

"Kung Lao is better. They nerfed his Cyclone from 5 frames to 7 frames, which means what he could punish on block he cant anymore."

Despite the nerf, PL feels that the fix to Kung Lao's Hat Spin and Orbiting Hat are considerable improvements. "Tempest [now] has a safe special to cancel into after a poke or string. It also allows him to properly link combos."

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.
