  1. The Mortal Kombat series has been one of the pillars of the fighting game scene since it rose to prominence in the arcades of the early 90s. By 2011, the series had been flagging after a series of mediocre spin-offs and main entries. With the dissolution of Midway, things were grim. However, series creator Ed Boon wasn't ready to be done with quite yet. He managed to create a game that encapsulated the entire series up until that point, bringing together characters and plots that had long become too convoluted for words and unifying them into one package with a modern shine that brought Mortal Kombat into a new era of prosperity and success. Each week we will be tackling a video game, old or new, that at least one of us believes deserves to stand as one of the greatest games of all time. We'll dive into its history, development, and gameplay, while trying to argue for or against the game of the week. Sometimes we will be in harmonious agreement, other times we might be fighting a bitter battle to the very end. However each episode shakes out, we hope that everyone who listens will find the show entertaining and informative. Outro music: Mortal Kombat 3 'Mortal Konfrontation' by The Dual Dragons (http://ocremix.org/remix/OCR02279) You can download or listen to the podcast over on Soundcloud, our hosting site, and iTunes. A YouTube version is available as well, so you can watch what we are talking about while we talk about it! If you want to have your opinion heard on air, share your opinion in the comments, follow the show on Twitter, and participate in the weekly polls: @BestGamesPeriod You can follow Marcus on Twitter @MarcusStewart7 where you can find his thoughts on Dragon Ball Super, wrestling, and video games! He also writes at Marcus Writes About Games, Extra Life (hey, that's here!), and hosts Carving Gaming Rushmores. New episodes of The Best Games Period will be released every Monday View full article

  3. Finally. The movie that we've all been waiting for is finally entering production. Who hasn't been kept awake in the wee hours of the morning dreaming about a science fiction adaptation of Tetris brought to the big screen by the same people who created 1995's cheesy fighting extravaganza, Mortal Kombat. The film will be produced by Threshold Entertainment and executive produced with the help of The Tetris Company. “Everyone knows that Tetris is one of the best known, most beloved brands in the world,” said Threshold's Larry Kasanoff. “What everyone doesn’t know yet is this epic sci-fi story that we’re going to tell. That’s what’s really exciting.” “What started as a simple, computer puzzle game 30 years ago, today is part of our global consciousness, connecting people of all ages and backgrounds and feeding our innate desire to create order out of chaos,” said Henk Rogers, MD of The Tetris Company. “We look forward to partnering with Threshold Entertainment to re-imagine that common experience and bring a spectacular new Tetris universe to the big screen for the first time. In this new universe, as you’ll soon find out, there’s much more to Tetris than simply clearing lines.” There isn't much more information about the Tetris movie available at this time. A note on their website states that, "Threshold does not publish information on its films in development so as to prevent slimy little weasels from stealing – we mean, for reasons of creative integrity." Look, I am all for giving whatever movie comes out of this pairing a fair shake. Maybe it will have some kind of Last Starfighter thing going on with aliens and video games and the fate of the galaxy. That could be pretty cool.On the other hand, this is the same company that had a hand in the creation of the abomination known as Food Fight!.

  5. Over the weekend, over 3,000 prospective champions descended upon Las Vegas, Nevada to battle to the virtual death. Of those 3,000, only eleven would be crowned champions of their respective games. Normally, it can be a bit difficult to find VODs from EVO right after the event. Luckily, this year you can find a number of them over on IGN. For your convenience, we've included replays of the grand final match-ups below. If you don't feel like watching the matches, feel free to scroll lower to view the results! Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition King of Fighters XIII Super Smash Bros. Melee Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Injustice: Gods Among Us Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Persona 4 Arena Street Fighter x Tekken Mortal Kombat Skullgirls Unfortunately, we weren't able to find any replays from the DiveKick exhibition matches that were on display at EVO.

  7. Beginning Friday morning and running through Sunday evening, the annual EVO championship series (short for Evolution) will be held in Las Vegas, Nevada. EVO is an umbrella event that covers all of the major and some of the not-so-major fighting games, giving each game its own tournament or exhibition. This year, EVO will consist of nine sub-tournaments, one for each of the following: Injustice: Gods Among Us, Mortal Kombat, Persona 4 Arena, Street Fighter x Tekken ver. 2013, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition ver. 2012, Tekken Tag Tournament 2, The King of Fighters XIII, and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. In addition to all of these games, there will also be exhibitions for indie fighting games Divekick and Skullgirls, as well as a demonstration of the upcoming box One fighting game, Killer Instinct. As someone who has very little experience with fighting games, I still find EVO to be a blast to watch. While I might not know the ins and outs of the gameplay and some of the nuances certainly go over my head, I know can still appreciate moments like my favorite video game comeback of all time from a 2005 Street Fighter EVO tournament between Daigo Umehara, who is widely considered to be the greatest Street Fighter player of all time, and Justin Wong, another contender for the position. There will be three streams via Twitch bringing EVO’s content to you live on the srkevo1, srkevo2, and srkevo3 channels. Viewers will be able to switch between the three of them from Twitch’s EVO 2013 hub. Each stream will have two commentators who know the intricacies of the games and will be able to translate for viewers who aren’t as familiar with fighting games. While the main streams are free, it is possible to purchase a $12 HD ticket to view the streams in HD. All proceeds will go toward a scholarship fund at NYU Game Center for aspiring game makers within the fighting game community. There was some contention yesterday, when Nintendo announced that they would not allow Super Smash Bros. Melee to be streamed from the competition, despite a fan movement that raised $94,000 for charity in order to bring Melee to the venerable EVO event. After about five hours of massive outrage, Nintendo reversed its stance, allowing the fighting game to be streamed. The full streaming schedule for EVO 2013 can be found here. For a more in-depth look at EVO including players to watch and fighting game jargon, be sure to check out this excellent viewing guide over on Shoryuken. Below you can find my favorite match-up from EVO 2012. For any of you fighting game fans out there, who are you rooting for this EVO? Personally, I’m hoping to see Daigo sweep Street Fighter IV.
