JXE Streams: 'Mortal Kombat X' pits Engadget against College Humor

Sponsored Links

Mortal Kombat is funny. NetherRealm's decades-old fighting series has never been Old Boy by way of Hostel. Its brand of dumb, outsized action is Shogun Assassin crossed with Evil Dead 2. When you pull off fatalities in Mortal Kombat 2, people explode and multiple ribcages fall from the sky. Where did the extra ribcage come from? Who cares! To celebrate the arrival of Mortal Kombat X's abject silliness, we have decided to indulge in a little friendly competition with College Humor on today's stream. Don't worry; everyone's ribcage will likely be fine.

Tune in right here on this post, at Engadget.com/gaming, or on Twitch.tv/Joystiq at 3PM ET to catch two solid hours of Mortal Kombat X fights. Are we experts? Hell no! We will, however, be hanging out with College Humor's very own Dan Hopper so at least you'll be entertained.

Dig the stream? Make sure to follow us on Twitch! If you want to know what's coming up on our schedule, check the top of Engadget.com/gaming to know what's on the way.

[We're playing a retail disc of Mortal Kombat X, streamed through an Elgato Capture HD via OBS at 720p. The game itself is much, much prettier.]
