Every IGN Mortal Kombat Review

Mortal Kombat has been gruesomely dismembering fighters since 1992 – four years before IGN was around. With the impending launch of Mortal Kombat 11 (which, shockingly, is not actually the 11th Mortal Kombat game) we’re looking back over all 30 reviews IGN has published. Interestingly, the series contains such a wide range of games that it’s one of the few that’s earned almost every score in the book, except the very highest and lowest available.

Which MK games stand out to you as the best and worst?

Every Rose as It’s Worn

The rose, one of nature’s great paradoxes — exquisite in its physical beauty and fragrance, whether hearty and bold or apparently delicate, yet dangerous and ever ready to draw blood.
That dichotomy has made roses a source of fascination throughout history. Countless cultures and religions have celebrated the glorious bloom, spinning tales around its creation and imbuing it with all kinds of meaning, the most constant, as a symbol of passion, love, eternity. Yet the rose has always had a rueful side to which creatives have long been drawn — painters, poets, playwrights and more drawn to its mystery, moodiness and in-full-view decay. Among those variously smitten: Yeats, Tennessee Williams, Robert Mapplethorpe and Mike Fleiss — the genius who created “The Bachelor.”
Fashion, too, has long romanced the rose. While that thought of rose-bedecked clothes might, at first, conjure images of sartorial schmaltz, the reality is in fact as varied as the flower types itself with designers, like other artistic types, often focusing on the bloom’s moodier incarnations. Such was the case with fall, a season in which roses bloomed everywhere, including on the runways of some of fashion’s most provocative and powerful creators.

Ariana Grande Says Fiancé Pete Davidson ‘Ticks Every Box,’ Reveals They’ll Likely Marry in 2019

Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson just knew.

In interview with Michael Strahan for Good Morning America on Wednesday, the singer, 25, revealed why she considers the Saturday Night Live star her soul mate.

“It’s just like a feeling, you know?” Grande told Strahan before laughing to herself, adding, “That’s so cheesy. People are always like, ‘When you know you know,’ and you’re like, ‘Yeah, okay, whatever.’ ”

Strahan further pressed the pop star, asking for specifics. “You just feel it… He just ticks every box, and it gets better every day,” she responded. “I’m very grateful for him. Life is beautiful.”

Grande also admitted she knows all eyes are on her and Davidson, 24, when they step out, saying, “We’re so annoying, huh?… It must be the worst.”

“We’re just grateful, enjoying every minute because life’s too short,” Grande added.

Up next for the couple? Wedding planning — though Grande told GMA the couple is “taking their time.”

“My friends and I, and my mom and everybody have been brainstorming and sharing ideas,” she said. “It’s really fun. I work so much I’ve never spent so much time planning something that’s personal, that feeds my soul so much and my heart. I’m gonna cry. I’m just so excited.”

Grande said that the pair won’t make their trek down the aisle soon, though, teasing, “It’s gonna be like, next year.”

The star also opened up about her new album, Sweetener, released on August 17, and the much-discussed track named after Davidson — a song, she told Strahan, she wrote as a “love letter.”

During the interview, Grande spoke with Strahan about grappling with the terrorist attack at her concert in Manchester in May 2017, which killed 22 people.

“I wanted to kind of subliminally honor the Manchester victims,” she said about a track on her new album, “Get Well Soon.” Continued Grande, “I wanted to make the length of the song five minutes and 22 seconds as a way to celebrate and honor them and their lives, because that song is about healing. It’s supposed to be a great big musical hug for anybody going through anything dark.”

He also opened up about their eventual nuptials in a recent GQ interview, telling the magazine that while they don’t really have much in the way of plans, the wedding is “definitely going to happen, for sure.”

Strange Brigade Brings to Life Pulp Adventure in Every Way

Strange Brigade rests upon the pulpiest of premises. An ancient tomb somewhere in Africa has been disturbed by a British archaeologist, releasing the vengeful spirit of Queen Seteki and a host of horrors, from giant scorpions to hordes of shambling mummies. To clear up this unholy mess, the British government despatches the eponymous team.

It’s a really fun premise and rich setting, which neatly blends the Victorian high adventure novels of H.Rider Haggard, the anxious Imperial gothic of Arthur Conan Doyle, and the rollicking Saturday morning matinees that inspired Indiana Jones into a spirited confection. Setting and tone are undoubtedly Strange Brigade’s greatest strengths and most endearing attributes.

Few if any living playwrights have been as successful for as long as Terrence McNally. “Every Act of Life” provides a predictably starry, rather standard, but satisfying overview of a prodigious career that is still going full-steam as the writer nears his ninth decade.

Meet the Superfans Who Camp Outside Kate Middleton’s Hospital Before Every Royal Baby Birth

Terry Hutt knows when he would like Kate Middleton to welcome her third child –April 30, which will be his 84th birthday.

For the third royal baby birth in a row, the ultimate royal superfan is in position opposite the now-famous doors of the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London — just as he did for the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Hutt and a group of his fellow dedicated fellow enthusiasts have been camped along a wall of the hospital since late Monday, April 9, when signs were erected to ban street parking.   

Left to right: Terry Hutt, Maria Scott and John Loughrey outside St. Mary’s Hospital in London on April 13, 2018.

During the day, Hutt says he wears his signature Union Jack suit because “people like seeing it,” but it is “well wrapped up at night.”

Alongside him are John Loughrey, 63, from London, and Maria Scott, 46, and her daughter Amy Thompson, 17, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Scott hopes for a St. George’s Day birthday (April 23) or one coinciding with Queen Elizabeth’s birthdate on April 21. 

Loughrey says he prefers the name Philip Michael (for Prince Philip and Kate’s father Michael Middleton) or Georgina, as a nod to a Spencer ancestor on Harry’s maternal side — or Elizabeth (for the Queen). There’s one thing the trio are agreed upon, though: “The most important thing is a healthy baby and a healthy mother.”

The gang and their friends will be there “rain or shine” to the end, they vow. “Once you’re in it, there’s no going back,” says Scott. “I would kick myself if I go back home and she has it the next day.”

Last time, when they were waiting for aorund two weeks for Charlotte to be born (she arrived on May 2, 2015), Prince William and Kate’s office sent some coffee and pastries to the campers one morning.

“I’m hoping for birthday cake this year,” jokes Hutt.

Sam Smith Reveals He Used to ‘Weigh Himself Every Day’

Sam Smith used to have an unhealthy relationship with his weight.

In the new issue of V magazine, during an interview with his friend and long-time fan Sarah Jessica Parker, the 25-year-old singer revealed that at the start of his music career, he spent a lot of time obsessing over his body.

“When I was shooting my first music videos, I just wasn’t happy with the way I looked, so I was trying to control the way the camera moved,” Smith said. “I got a bit obsessive. I was constantly looking in the mirror, pinching my waist, weighing myself every day.”

But the Brit added that these days he’d “gotten to a place where I really love my stretch marks and I just enjoy my body.”

The “Too Good at Goodbyes” singer went on to say that even though he’s embraced body positivity, sometimes he still gets sick of himself.

“My job is very self-indulgent: I have to listen to my voice daily, I make decisions on what tour posters or album covers look like, I look at my face while sitting in the makeup chair. I get kind of sick of myself, so I trust my team,” Smith continued.

But no matter how much he’s learned to love himself, Smith feels like “my body image is always going to be an issue.”

“I need to constantly train myself to watch the right sort of films, to not look at certain ads and think that’s how my stomach should look. It’s something that I’m fighting every day,” he said, adding that he thinks body image struggles are something “men should talk about” more frequently.
