Kaworu's Mortal Kombat Prima Guide Video Review (NSFW)

The guide for Marvel vs Capcom 3 is very highly regarded and may be one of the very best fighting game guides ever printed.  The guide for Mortal Kombat? Not so much.  In this video, Kaworu gives his thoughts on the Prima Mortal Kombat guide.  If you think this video is negative about the guide, keep in mind that this video review doesn't even mention the numerous errors found in the book and on the included cards (see HERE and also read comments!)!

This video is not safe for work, but you need to see this if you are on the fence about picking up this guide! 

The chances for a corrected 2nd print? From Prima: “Economics makes a second printing unlikely, unfortunately.”

Marvel vs Capcom 3: FADC - IFC Yipes Vs Twisted Jago First to Ten 

IFC Yipes and Twisted Jago (Andre) do a first to ten set of matches.  They start off with alternate characters and then finish things off with their real teams.  Both players are fun to watch, but in the case of these two players it's almost as fun to listen.  The commentary between the two is entertaining.  It's NSFW though, so keep that volume low if you watch this at work.

This vid is courtesy of FrameAdvantageDotCom.  While I'm on the subject of FADC, I really love the new site layout.  If you are a match video fiend and haven't visited yet, check it out and bookmark. Great work, Seb!

IPW TOPIC OF THE WEEK: Has Mortal Kombat Met Your Expectations?

When Mortal Kombat was first announced, many of us in the community had no idea what to expect from the game. The series hasn't exactly had the best track record since some of the older game were released, so it's to be expected that many people would be a little hesitant about a new game. 

As more media trickled through it helped ease our worries, but there was still no way to know how the game would end up playing. Even with the demo that was released many players were on the fence about the game considering there were still many changes to be made and there weren't enough characters on the roster to really make an informed decision about the game.

So now that the game has been released and you all have had a bit of time to play it, what do you think? Did it meet your expectations or completely blow them away? Is it the Mortal Kombat you've wanted for all these years or is something lacking? Hit us up in the comments and let us know!
