Nothing brings a good couple rounds of Mortal Kombat to end like a satisfying fatality. Like bloody exclamation marks, these gory displays of overkill have been grossing us out for 20+ years, with each iteration getting more and more brutal. Mortal Kombat X's finishers are some of the most insane yet, and this list is a collection of the most outlandish.
Mortal Kombat X is a huge deal. Not only is it the tenth official entry in one of the longest running fighting game series of all time, it’s looking like one of the best. Fully embracing its gory, over-the-top nature while cleverly and recklessly changing up many of the series standby, Mortal Kombat X is shaping up to be something that will surprise everyone, both noob and vet.
Path to the Sky is a roguelike platformer with retro pixel art, melodic chiptunes, and a procedurally-generated world to explore.

Your only hope of rescue is to reach the topmost peak of the island – but getting there is no easy feat. Path to the Sky is planned to enter Early Access within the next few months.

Compulsion Games, the creators of Contrast, are developing another artistically-inclined title, this time a first-person survival game set in an eerily happy, mod inspired dystopia. In We Happy Few, you’ll need to blend in with the dreadfully cheerful inhabitants of Wellington Wells. If they discover that you aren’t as drug-fuelled and law abiding as you should be, things can quickly take a turn for the worst.

Happy Mortal Kombat Day! When discussing the famous franchise, much of the talk is monopolized by "blood this" and "fatality that." One thing we always take for granted, though: the stages. These lethal arenas are home to some of the series' most important moments. Don't believe me?
