Super Replay – Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks – 05

If you're a longtime fan of Replay, you probably know that Reiner and I are both huge Mortal Kombat fans. Almost three years ago, we revisted Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks and were reminded that it's super awesome. We've been talking recently about how it would be fun to do a co-op Super Replay, so what better candidate for our first than Liu Kang and Kung Lao's fatality-filled adventure?

Watch our full playthrough of the game below, and there's no goober skipping the awesome first cutscene this time!

Due to editors' schedules, we are unable to air the normal two episodes per week.

This is only temporary and we will get back on track in a couple weeks.

Here is the revised release schedule:

  • Episode 5 – Saturday, April 5th
  • Episode 6 – Saturday, April 12th
  • Episode 7 – Saturday, April 19th
  • Episode 8 – Sunday, April 20th

Keifer Sutherland confirms involvement in new Mortal Kombat

Keifer Sutherland’s presence in games might not be a one-and-done scenario. The 24 star – and new voice of Snake in Metal Gear Solid 5 – recently told IGN that he will also be involved in a new Mortal Kombat. “I did Mortal Kombat, and that’s such a…

Kiefer Sutherland Confirms Involvement In Mortal Kombat Game

In a recent interview with 24 star Kiefer Sutherland discussing his portrayal of Solid Snake in the new Metal Gear Solid, he let slip that he recently finished work on a Mortal Kombat game.

Speaking with IGN, Sutherland brought up his work on Mortal Kombat as a comparison to his work on Metal Gear Solid V. Sutherland said, “I did Mortal Kombat, and that's such a huge game, but it’s so not like [MGS5]." Sutherland did not specify what role he is playing in Mortal Kombat, but he did say that the work was much faster compared to Metal Gear Solid V.

Kiefer Sutherland will be playing the role of Solid Snake in the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V, which we have been covering all month. You can find all of our coverage by clicking the banner below.

It's only slightly related, but below you will find a recent episode of Replay where we played 24: The Game, which of course stars Kiefer Sutherland.

Our Take
I don't get the sense that Sutherland is a fan of playing video games, but he must have had a good experience with Metal Gear Solid if he has decided to pursue more video game projects. It's also pretty exciting to learn that there is something new in the works for Mortal Kombat.

Mortal Kombat Producer Announces Departure From NetherRealm Studios

Hector Sanchez, a producer at NetherRealm Studios, announced his departure from the developer on Twitter earlier this week.

Sanchez served producing roles on the most recent Mortal Kombat, as well as Injustice: Gods Among Us. In his tweet announcing his leaving, Sanchez said his time with NetherRealm has been amazing, and he is moving onto another adventure.

Our Take
Sanchez has done well with NetherRealm as the most recent Mortal Kombat and Injustice: Gods Among Us were both very well received. I'm curious if he will continue to work on fighting games, or if his new adventure will will take him into a new genre. Or maybe he's leaving video games altogether. We'll have to wait and see.

Warner Bros. Humble Bundle adds Mortal Kombat, FEAR, more

The Warner Bros. Humble Bundle, which runs until November 19, has added some new games and DLC today. Those who have yet to pay over the average or have already done so will find Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection, FEAR, Guardians of Middle-earth (including “Smaug’s Treasure” add-on) and a special starter pack, which includes exclusive boosts, armor and quests, for Lord of the Rings Online available.

On top of the free games, there’s also a weapon pack for free-to-play shooter Gotham City Impostors, plus some additional skins for Batman: Arkham Origins. That last one is a little odd considering the game isn’t even included in this bundle.

The Warner Bros. Humble Bundle made its debut last week, offering up a collection of six games: Game of the Year versions of Batman: Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, along with FEAR 2 Project Origin, FEAR 3, Scribblenauts Unlimited and Lord of the Rings: War in the North. The Warner Bros. Humble Bundle will be live for the next five days.

Mortal Kombat flim director steps aside to avoid a creative fatality

Kevin Tancharoen, the director of Mortal Kombat: Legacy, has officially stepped away from all things mortal and combative, he revealed via Twitter. Tancharoen headed up the Legacy webseries after launching Mortal Kombat Rebirth, a short, gritty film starring classic Mortal Kombat characters, in 2010. In 2011, New Line Cinema tapped Tancharoen to direct a feature film in the Mortal Kombat universe, though the franchise’s IP rights were in limbo at the time.

“After 3 years of Kombat, I’ve decided to move on to other creative opportunities,” he writes. “I wish everyone involved in the movie big success. Thanks!”

The entire second season of Mortal Kombat: Legacy went live courtesy of Machinima on September 27. It’s 10 episodes long, so if news of Tancharoen’s departure has you hankering for a fight, get started here.

Mortal Kombat Movie Director Leaves The Project

Kevin Tancharoen, the creator and director of the Mortal Kombat Legacy web series, was supposed to direct the upcoming Mortal Kombat film, but he recently revealed that he was leaving the project.

The movie was initially reported on in 2011, with a tentative 2013 release date. The movie was rumored to follow the story of a grocery store clerk who discovers he has super powers. Yesterday Tancharoen tweeted that he was no longer involved in the project.

It's unclear if Tancharoen is leaving just the film behind, or if he is leaving the Mortal Kombat franchise altogether.

Our Take
Tancharoen's directorial resume is surprising. He's not a film maker you would expect to have any interest in Mortal Kombat based on directing things like Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, Fame, and The Pussycat Dolls Present: The Search for the Next Doll. That being said, he is clearly passionate about the franchise. His efforts and success with the Legacy web series are all based off of Mortal Kombat Rebirth, a short film that he self-financed just because he wanted to make some live-action Mortal Kombat. He seems like the best fit to direct a Mortal Kombat film, and I am curious who could replace him.
