Rambo carves Shao Kahn clean in two with only his stabby knife for a bloody Brutality in Mortal Kombat 11: Ultimate

John Rambo is often treated as a super soldier that hasn't undergone any genetic enhancements like Captain America, but his incarnation in Mortal Kombat 11 makes him look powerful enough to go toe-to-toe with the gods themselves.

NetherRealm Studios has released a new clip of one of Rambo's knife-based Brutalities in Ultimate with this latest one being used off of his special grab attack. NSFW blood and violence ahead of course.

More awesome Tekken X Darkstalkers art appreciates how much more alike these characters are than different

Our first roundup of Tekken X Darkstalkers art from the very talented Michafrar was a hit, and so we're back with another round up of images that observe similar characters from both franchises hitting it off in interesting ways.

While they all certainly have their own identities, there's a good bit of overlap in the styles and personalities of many of these characters. Michafrar has cleverly captured the magic between these pairs, sometimes in more obvious and sometimes in more obscure ways.

You may be shocked at how many staple fighting game mechanics originated in the Darkstalkers series

The Darkstalkers franchise is regularly hailed as one of the most influential and beloved fighting game series of all time despite there not having been a new Darkstalkers game for well over 20 years as well as the franchise not seeing the mainstream success you'd associate with the bigger fighting game series of our time.

While the franchise does live on fairly well via Capcom crossover projects (in no small part because Morrigan Aensland is basically one of Capcom's mascot characters at this point), it would certainly be difficult to understand the big deal this franchise was to a lot of people unless you were there when it was a thing, or have retroactively experienced it later on. Well, if you're a fighting game fan (which you probably are if you're visiting this site) but aren't all too familiar with Darkstalkers, you may be surprised to learn that many of the staples we today take for granted in our fighting games actually came from Darkstalkers originally.

The Kombat Kasts are hosted by Tyler Lansdown, Stephanie Brownback, and Derek Kirtzic, NetherRealm Studios' Community Manager, Senior QA Analyst, and Senior Systems Designer, respectively. Mileena happens to be a favorite of Kirtzic's, and he and his co-hosts made mention of two of her traditional techniques that will return as part of her toolkit this time around.

Here's a spooky little Darkstalkers Easter egg to enjoy as you wait for Halloween tomorrow

Demitri's Midnight Bliss special move in the Darkstalkers series is one that sees his opponent transform into a young female version of themselves when it hits. Each fighter turns into something different, whether it be a nurse or a mermaid, and with moves like this there's always an interest from fans to see all of the possible variations of it.

In the Japan-only Vampire Savior 2: The Lord of Vampire, sub boss character Huitzil (or Phobos, as he's known overseas) actually has two different transformations. This cool little Easter egg was shared by ohfivepro, and it's the perfect spooky "did ya know?" fact on the day before Halloween.

At one point, it was demonstrated that Rambo will have access to a rather unique move. According to NetherRealm Studios, this technique isn't a "normal move" which implies that it's not part of Rambo's base moveset.
