The Quitality Fatality Will Punish Online Quitters With Beheading

NetherRealm Studios recently revealed a new type of Mortal Kombat X Fatality that will punish those who leave online fights mid-match.

Revealed during a recent live stream titled, Whips, Sais and a Little Surprise, the Quitality will behead and kill players who leave in the middle of the match. It's a fancy (and violent) way of calling out a forfeit.

You can check out the archive of the live stream in the video below, and jump to the 59 minute mark to see the Quitality in action.

Video Teaser Points To Countdown Website

A new explosive Halo 5: Guardians teaser video points to a countdown timer that expires in about a day.

You can check out the teaser video below, and the countdown site it leads to by following this link. The video shows the iconic Halo sniper rifle firing off a bullet that has word traitor on it at a Master Chief helmet that looks very similar to the box art for The Master Chief Collection. The similarities to The Master Chief Collection's box art is likely just a coincidence, but it's hard not to recall the art when you see it.

A button on the site also encourages you to tweet the phrase, "What seems like the end, is only the beginning." with the hashtags #HUNTtheTRUTH and #Halo5. Whatever the site is teasing, we will find out more in about 32 hours.

New Bloodborne Trailer Shows Off The Game's Bizarre Creatures

about X hours ago from

From Software's latest creation, Bloodborne, is coming to the PlayStation 4 next week. It builds off the notoriously unforgiving gameplay from the studio's Souls series, though it's shifting away from dark fantasy to a Lovecraftian nightmare. A new trailer starts with shots of a few comparatively mundane enemies, but the creature designs quickly go off the rails – in a good way.

It's one thing to take on werewolves, giant humanoids, and spiders. We've all done that before. Bloodborne's menagerie gets weird, as you can see in the clip below. That tentacled beast near the end is a particular highlight. Or are they eels? Who even knows anymore?

It's only four days before the launch of Life is Strange's second episode. Today, a new trailer was revealed, giving us a glimpse into the uncertain, rewindable future of Max's magical world.

New locations will be available to explore, particularly outside of Blackwell Academy. You will be able to learn more about the town and its inhabitants in more detail, including the social issues they face.

New Protoss Unit And Beta Screens Revealed

New Protoss Unit And Beta Screens Revealed

StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void goes into closed beta on March 31, and there's a host of new multiplayer features fans will be able to explore should they be lucky enough to get in. High on the list is the Protoss new ranged unit, the Adept. We've got new details on this newcomer, along with a slew of screenshots from the beta.

Several new units have already been confirmed for Legacy of the Void, such as the Zerg's Ravager and Lurker, and the Terran's missile-firing Cyclone tank. Unfortunately, the Terran's bipedal HERC unit has been cancelled due to its overlap with another similar unit. 

The Adept is a ground-based ranged Protoss unit that tosses a glowing disc weapon at enemies. The energy frisbee then chains between enemies, handily dealing damage to a small group. She can also teleport to a safe spot thanks to her psionic projection ability. The Adept keeps fighting while the player moves around a translucent hologram of herself, which she teleports to after 10 seconds. Sounds like a nifty feature for hit and run against enemy units.
