Mortal Kombat X Combo Tips

Here is a terrific video from YouTuber infamy 23 on executing combos in Mortal Kombat X.

Per infamy 23:

For those who don’t know, it is common to refer to moves in Mortal Kombat games by saying 1, 2, 3, 4.

1 = Front Punch, Square, X
2 = Back Punch, Triangle, Y
3 = Front Kick, X, A
4 = Back Kick, Circle, B

x = Cancel into a special (This is not a button, it is just a notation that we use to indicate when a normal move is being cancelled into a special move. In this video, 114 is being cancelled into DB1, so we say 114xDB1)

So the combo in this video is written: 114xDB1, step forward, F32xBF3

Was Cassie Cage based on UFC Fighter Felice Herrig?

Cassie Cage, the gum chewing, ass kicking, selfie taking daughter of Sonya and Johnny Cage bears an odd resemblance to popular MMA fighter and UFC star Felice Herrig.

Herrig is a little angry about Cassie, who she says bears more than just a passing similarity. She first became aware of the similarity months ago, paying it little attention – but has since moved on to having a sneaking suspicion that the team used her likeness without permission.


Here’s what’s got her riled up, according to Kotaku:

“Cassie Cage has a similar face, blows a mean gum bubble, and positions herself as a selfie superstar (Herrig is somewhat notorious in the MMA world for taking a lot of selfies).”


If you’ll recall, Cassie Cage has a Selfie Fatality. While it could be mere coincidence, the resemblances striking.

While we wouldn’t be surprised if the design team used her as one of many references, the fact is Cassie is a distinct blend of her parents Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade.

What do you think? Does Herrig have a reason to be suspicious?
