Rounding out ou..
The upcoming Mortal Kombat movie, a new stab at the video game license in movie form a few decades after it last saw theatrical success, is currently eyeballing production. Before you start filming, though, you need a cast, and the movie has just grabbed itself a few key roles.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Liu Kang, Raiden, Mileena, and Jax have all been cast. Liu Kang is being played by Ludi Lin, who played Zack in the 2017 Power Rangers reboot and Murk in Aquaman. Supergirl actor Mehcad Brooks is playing Jax, while Thor Raganork's Tadanobu Asano is in negotiations to play Raiden. Mileena will be played by newcomer Sisi Stringer.
The movie already has The Raid's Joe Taslim playing Sub-Zero. In addition, the movie's screenwriter confirmed that the movie would earn an R-rating with fatalities, as well.

Let us know what you're getting up to this weekend!
Jeff Cork – I’ll be on a plane for a bit this weekend, which means that I’ll probably be Stardew Valley-ing it up, between some Diablo III sessions. Then it’s all about Gamescom! Gamescom may not have quite as many high-profile reveals as E3, but it’s easily my favorite show. The show floor is open to the public, and there’s a super fun festival-like atmosphere to it all. Plus, they have super great pretzels! We’ll have a bunch of stories and previews going up from Cologne next week, so come back and check it out!

Since season 10 debuted in Fortnite with a battle between a mecha and a kaiju, mechs have become a bit of a thing in the game's battle royale mode. This hasn't been to everyone's taste, however, as whoever gets access to the B.R.U.T.E. mech tends to rack up kills in a way that seems pretty unbalanced and the player base has responded asking Epic to remove it. It turns out that overpowered dynamic is exactly what Epic had it in mind when they designed it.
Amidst a hashtag asking Epic to rescind the B.R.U.T.E, known simply as #RemoveTheMech, the developer has felt the need to explain their reasoning about it, and thus posted a new blog post.
“The mission of Fortnite is to bring players of all skill levels together to have a fun experience where anyone can win,” Epic writes. “For example — everyone having a shot at that first elimination or Victory Royale moment and the satisfying feeling that comes with it. Right now, we know there are players out there who have never ha..
