There is a ton of interactive parts in each stage in Mortal Kombat X. In one arena there is a sweet-looking old lady. You can find her in the Outworld Marketplace. The game allows you to throw her against your opponent. She also can be thrown at you. I guess that is what you get when you stand too close in Mortal Kombat.
Now it looks like she can also dish out some punches of her own. She can be used as a Brutality move in the game. One way is when she is flung in the air at the opponent. The other way is when she gets to throw in a few haymakers on the combatant. Don’t believe me? Check out the video below.

If you are a fan of the CW hit shows “Arrow” and “The Flash” you are going to love the Flash/Arrow spin-off show called “Legends of Tomorrow” Below you can check out the trailer. It is pretty exciting.
The show will have these “heroes” fight the villain Vandal Savage. We also get to see Hawkgirl and Ray Palmer (The Atom). Sara Lance is back from the dead, apparently brought back via the Lazarus Pit. We see a glimpse of Harrison Wells / Eobard Thawne in some sort of time machine.
Even villains like Captain Cold added to the team should be pretty fun. The only part that is bad is that we have to wait until next year for the show to begin.
There are some cool new pictures from the set of “Captain America: Civil War.” The internet has been a buzz when we got our first look at the Brock Rumlow (Frank Grillo), aka Crossbones, in his costume. Captain America (Chris Evans) and Falcon (Anthony Mackie) look to have new uniforms as well.
There’s also some fun back and forth between Chris Evans and Frank Grillo on Twitter. “Captain America: Civil War” will be released in theaters on May 6, 2016.
The duo of Reebok Classic and Finish Line partner to bring fans another exclusive look into the lives, styles, and creative processes of some of the world’s top musical artists through its new video series entitled “Studio Sessions.”
In this second episode of Studio Sessions, Kendrick Lamar sits down with Finish Line reporter, Jacques Slade, in the same studio where he created his latest album, “To Pimp a Butterfly.” The two rappers, with a mutual love for classic sneakers, discuss where Kendrick the person—not the rapper—draws his inspiration from. Lamar’s answer?
Kendrick says that meeting people and taking a nugget of wisdom from each interaction is what keeps him inspired. Musically, Kendrick says he’s most inspired by his father and his love of music, which introduced him to the artists from which he’d learn: mostly oldies and gangsta rap.
Stay tuned for future episodes of Studio Sessions with Kendrick Lamar, coming soon.
FOX has a new show that looks like it could be really good. It is called “Frankenstein Code.” The show is from executive producer/writer Rand Ravich (“Life,” “Crisis”) and executive producer Howard Gordon (“Homeland,” “24”). The new show looks to do a modern reimagining of the Mary Shelley classic, about a man brought back to life by two scientists playing god.
The show looks to be set around seventy-five-year-old Jimmy Pritchard, who is a shell of his former self. A drinker, a womanizer and a father who always put work before family, Pritchard was forced to resign as L.A. County Sheriff for corrupt conduct more than a decade ago. Now, some 15 unkind years later, he is killed when he stumbles upon a robbery at the home of FBI Agent Ducal Pritchard, one of his three children. But death is surprisingly short for Jimmy, who is brought back to life by billionaire tech-genius twins Mary Goodwin and her brother Otto. They are the founders of the social networking empire, Lookinglass.
Resurrected as a younger version of himself, with physical abilities of which he never dreamed, a re-animated Pritchard is given a second chance at life. What will he do with it? Will he seek vengeance against those who killed him? Will he try to repair the damage he did to his family? Will he embrace a new sense of purpose or fall prey to old temptations?

You never know what to expect when you are watching live TV. If you were watching the NBA Playoffs on TNT you were in store to see Shaq take a tumble on the set during the halftime report. Shaq tripped over equipment while he and Kenny Smith were about to go to their big screen to breakdown the plays from the first half. That plan went on hold as Shaq tripped. Shaq kept on blaming Ernie Johnson for the fall.
Shaq then placed a challenge on Twitter to see who could do the best Photoshop work.
