Mortal Kombat 11 Kollector's Edition Is Expensive, But Has A Scorpion Mask

NetherRealm shared more details on Mortal Kombat 11 today, including its high-end limited edition with goodies aimed at hardcore fans of the hard-hitting series. It's a sizable package, and the centerpiece is a neat costume prop honoring one of the series' most iconic characters.

The "Kollector's Edition" boasts a 1:1 scale Scorpion mask measuring at 35 x 18 x 21 cm. That includes both the dark cowl and the bright gold mouthpiece, giving that important otherworldly look. We saw it on stage during the presentation, and it actually appears like it could reasonably fit on the heads of the two hosts around it.

Other baubles in the Kollector's Edition include the Premium Edition of the game that includes the Kombat Pack, a Kollector's Box, and a Steelcase with MK logo medallion magnet. Kombat Packs were the name given DLC character packs in Mortal Kombat X, and GameSpot has contacted WB to confirm details for this one. It also appears as if the magnet may fit into an indentation in the case.

Riverdale Is Getting Musical Again With Heathers Adaptation

Riverdale Is Getting Musical Again With Heathers Adaptation

Riverdale continues to be one of the weirdest shows on TV where everything that happens is likely the last thing you'd possibly expect. Don't believe that? Archie Andrews (KJ Apa) was attacked by a bear in the latest episode and just might be dead. (He's definitely not going to die, don't worry.)

Now the CW series is gearing up for its next musical episode. You may remember last season when they tackled Carrie: The Musical in an episode that left one character dead and everyone else freaking out. Now Riverdale is looking back on another classic film for its musical inspiration. On March 29, the series will present its take on Heathers: The Musical.

In a statement, showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa teased, "Last year, we had a blast doing Carrie. This year, we wanted to honor another iconic teen movie. Heathers: The Musical is big fun, with great roles for the Riverdale kids. And everyone is singing." That last bit seems to hint that even Jughead (Cole Sprouse) will be getting in on the vocal action this time, after being sidelined during the Carrie musical.

Mortal Kombat 11: Watch Some New Fatalities

about X hours ago from

Mortal Kombat is known for many things, but none is more iconic than its over-the-top Fatalities. NetherRealm knows where its bread is buttered, so it made a point to show off a special Fatalities trailer during its Mortal Kombat 11 presentation.

The montage is a bloody visceral series of blood and viscera. You'll see bones crunch, sinew snap, heads fly, and brains made for a tasty snack. It's all very painful to watch, in that special Mortal Kombat way.

The reveal event also debuted a new character named Geras, announced actress Ronda Rousey as the voice behind Sonya Blade, and showed off some new gameplay systems like the Fatal Blows. NetherRealm also teased more announcements to come on its series of Kombat Kasts.

Mortal Kombat 11's First Bloody Gameplay Trailer Revealed

about X hours ago from

After its surprise debut at the 2018 Game Awards, fans have been waiting for more Mortal Kombat 11 details to get over here. NetherRealm formally took the wraps off of the new fighting game with a livestream keynote, starting with the reveal of its first official gameplay trailer.

The video, which you can watch below, shows off a variety of veteran Mortal Kombat characters battling it out. In addition to Raiden and Scorpion--both of whom were featured during the Game Awards trailer--we got our first look at Liu Kang, Baraka, Sub-Zero, and Sonya, among others. And in true Mortal Kombat fashion, we got to see plenty of gruesome fatalities.

NetherRealm also confirmed that there will be different variations of fighters, and players will be able to customize these with different costume pieces, intros, and more. We had previously heard about custom character variations, which was a logical progression from Injustice 2. We also knew this one would mark the return of "Klassic" fighters, including Raiden and two Scorpions. Fans suspected that could signal some time travel or multi-verse implications.

Every M. Night Shyamalan Movie Twist, Ranked From Worst To Best

Every M. Night Shyamalan Movie Twist, Ranked From Worst To Best


Writer/Director M. Night Shyamalan is known for his 11th-hour plot twists. It started with his breakout film The Sixth Sense, and it's continued throughout his entire career. It's so omnipresent, in fact, that audience members go into his films expecting to see one, with even worst films devolving into see-if-you-can-solve-the-mystery scavenger hunts. And in true ironic fashion, it is now a twist to not have a twist in a Shyamalan film.

Shyamalan is very hit-or-miss; once praised as the next Spielberg, he made a number of critically panned films in the '00s before a much-heralded return to form, beginning with The Visit in 2015. And on January 18, 2018, audiences will have the chance to watch the much-anticipated Glass, the final part in the director's long-gestating superhero trilogy, which also includes Unbreakable and Split.

To celebrate, we're looking back at every twist ending in Shyamalan's career, and ranking them from worst to best.

Let us know if we got the ordering right in the comments. And it goes without saying: spoilers ahead.

New Overwatch Skins Coming With Lunar New Year 2019 Event

about X hours ago from

Overwatch is once again ringing in the new lunar calendar with an in-game event. This time it's the Year of the Pig, and as usual we can expect a slew of new skins to mark the occasion. Obviously, Roadhog needs to take center stage this time.

Year of the Pig will kick off on January 24, 2019. Until then, Blizzard promises to show off a new skin every day on its Twitter and Facebook social channels. You might say they're going to toss around some pigskins.

Last year's Lunar New Year event was the Year of the Dog. It included a host of skins and other cosmetics, along with a special capture the flag mode. Or fetch, as the case may be. Since then we've gotten a few new characters added to the roster, including Wrecking Ball and Ashe. Both of them are behind the rest of the crew on the full-makeover Legendary skins, so we may see some added with this update.
