Tanya

Confession: Long before I was going steady with Tali from Mass Effect, I kind of had a crush on another video game character. Young D was in love, with Tanya from Mortal Kombat 4. It’s not hard to see why. With hormones rushing through my body like blood from a fatality, playing as an Edenian that was dressed up like a safety demonstration at a strip club resulted in me adoring the character. Times changed though, and while my romantic tastes are now…different, I’m still fond of Tanya. A character who’ll be kicking ass once again in Mortal Kombat X.

If you’re wondering what Tanya’s other fatality looks like, here’s a rather large GIF version of it captured from a recent stream. As usual, a new kharacter in Mortal Kombat X means a touch more rebalancing in the game. Here’s the latest patch notes from Mortal Kombat X:

  • Erron Black – Tackle is now -2 on hit (down from +20)

  • Takeda (Lasher) – Low Slash is now -19 on block (down from -24)
  • Takeda (Lasher) – Whip Trip / Flip is now -11 on block (down from -21)

And don’t forget! This weekend, it’s Team D from Lazygamer versus Team DK from SA Gamer. As much as I respect my opponent Dave Kozlowski, I do intend to make orphans of his future children. Because I imagine that I’ll beat him so soundly this Saturday, that his future wife will die from sheer shock sometime in the future.

BELIEVE IN TEAM D!
