Everything You Need to Know From Today’s Mortal Kombat X Live Stream

During today’s Kombat Kast, developer NetherRealm shared new details about gruesome fatalities, a cool new Raiden skin, and a certain four-armed kombatant.

We covered all the MKX news on IGN, and now we’re rounding up all the big stories and videos you shouldn’t miss.

Goro was already confirmed as a pre-order bonus character in MKX, but until today, NetherRealm didn’t share whether he’d be available by any other method.

The four-armed fighter can be picked up later down the road as DLC. “He’s free if you pre-order… not so free if you don’t,” NetherRealm confirmed.

Bloodborne Boss Guide: How to Beat Celestial Emissary

Recommended Level: 60

The first phase of this boss fight involves fending off a herd of bulb-headed creatures. At first, it might not seem like you’re not doing significant damage, but you’ll notice the boss’ lifebar decrease with nearly every kill. If you rely a lot on the lock-on, you might find that leaving it off for most of this fight will let you hit more enemies in a single blade swing. It’s a roomy area, so feel free to back up once in a while to heal, regain stamina, and tighten the crowds of enemies.

The real boss appears once its lifebar is reduced to about 50%. It’s arms might not look long relative to the rest of its body, but since it’s much larger than its minions, its reach is surprisingly long. If it manages to hit you with a three-swing combo, be ready to retreat and heal. Conversely, avoiding the combo will give you an opening to unleash a series of quick attacks for as long as you have stamina. Eventually it will change into its hairier form, which gives it ranged attack powers. These are easy to prepare for since the glowing light preceding each attack is obvious. These can simply be avoided with dodges to the side. Like its combos, a well-dodged beam will leave the Emissary open to quick attacks.

The key defensive strategy is to use the man-made terrain to your advantage. You can back up and lure the Emissary and its minions to the higher sections of the area and then escape with a drop to the lower sections. The Emissary might drop down to follow you, but the minions most likely won’t. This will give you some 1-on-1 —> Read More

Dean Ambrose on His Solo Career and WrestleMania 31 Match

Following the break up of the incredibly successful stable he was a part of, The Shield, Dean Ambrose has gone on to a very well received solo career in the WWE. This Sunday, he goes into WrestleMania to face six other competitors in a ladder match for the Intercontinental Championship.

I sat down with Ambrose to speak to him about his Mania match, his feelings on going solo in the past year and his starring role in the upcoming WWE movie, Lockdown.

IGN: I talked to you a year ago at this same time, going into WrestleMania, and obviously a lot has changed since then. When you guys split up The Shield, you didn’t know how things were going to go. How gratifying has it been to see how well received you’ve been as a singles competitor?

Brik Case is a LEGO-like case for your laptop

Laptops are usually hefty investments, and wise buyers protect their investments. For a notebook, that generally involves buying a laptop case, which are available in many different varieties: leather, plastic, and just about everything between. A plastic brick version isn’t commonly one of those options, however, as it’s not the first medium you’d consider using to protect a gadget. It … —> Read More

HTC still in turmoil: Lead designer out after just one year on the job

HTC Lead Designer Leaves

It’s never a good sign to see a major executive shakeup at a company just after it makes a major product launch — see Windows 8 architect Steven Sinofsky’s abrupt departure from Microsoft after Windows 8 launched, for instance. This is now the case with HTC, which last week announced that CEO Peter Chou would be replaced by chairman Cher Wang less than a month after the company unveiled its flagship HTC One M9 phone. And now Engadget brings us word of another key departure: Jonah Becker, HTC’s VP of Industrial Design, who leaves the company after just a year working as its lead designer.
