Perfect Legend officially joins Team Razer! Just in time for the Mortal Kombat X Fatal 8 Exhibition Tournament

Today on his Twitter, Carl "Perfect Legend" White announced that he has joined up to represent team Razer. Very good timing to pick up a sponsor as Perfect Legend is prepping to play in the MKX Fatal 8 Exhibition Tournament tomorrow, on April 11th.

He will face off against seven other "kombatants" including the likes of Ryan Hart and HitBox|Tyrant. RZR|Perfect Legend may be the scariest competitor of all however, with back to back EVO victories for Mortal Kombat 2011 in both 2011 and 2012.

We'd like to offer a congratulations to both Perfect Legend and Team Razer for the exciting partnership.

NetherRealm has plans for grassroots tournaments around the world, says ESL creative producer; explains why MKX Pro League is on Xbox One

It was recently announced that NetherRealm Studios will be partnering up with ESL to run a series of Mortal Kombat X tournaments this year. Known as The Worldwide Competitive Program, this series will feature the Fatal 8 Exhibition Tournament and Mortal Kombat X ESL Pro League Tournament -- one pitting 8 of the world's best Mortal Kombat players against one another, and the other a string of online events with a local grand final, respectively.

Joshua Gray, creative producer at ESL America, recently took to the TestYourMight forums to run an AMAA (ask me almost anything) session. Naturally, the Mortal Kombat community over at TYM wanted to know more about The MKX Worldwide Competitive Program.

In order to better unify the online players for season one of the competitive program, Gray states that Warner Bros., ESL, and NetherRealm decided that the best course of action was to have everyone play on one platform. Xbox One was the console of choice for a number of reasons.

"After months of meetings, it was decided to go with the Xbox One for NA/EU for a variety of reasons, including: the track record of support from Xbox for competitive leagues, the robust performance of Xbox Live, [and[ the ESL App on the Xbox One," Gray explained.

The three entities behind this competitive league feel that their choice was indeed the best one, even if the decision was a difficult one to make.

Jax rips your head open and puts a cigar out on you, Jacqui lands a barrage of punches: Check out the Briggs' Fatalities and X-Ray attacks

Yesterday, the Mortal Kombat X All Access stream ran for roughly 5 full hours. We saw quite a few things for the first time here, including official Goro gameplay (including his Fatalities), more of MKX's Test Your Luck mode, and more.

During the broadcast, Jax and his daughter Jacqui also made an appearance, and for the first time ever we were shown their first Fatalities, in full, and their X-Ray attacks.

So, rather than have you sift through 5 hours of footage to find them, we've gone ahead and tracked the down for you. To start, we have Jacqui's X-Ray attack: a barrage of torso punches, followed by a devastating uppercut and finishing with a leaping punch to the spine.

Warning: These GIFs are graphic and not for the feint of heart.
