MMA fighter steaming mad over Mortal Kombat
MMA fighter Felice Nicole Herrig is not happy with NetherRealm Studio’s latest installment of Mortal Kombat. Herrig, a fighter for the UFC who also loves to post selfies on her Instagram page has become vocal about the release of Mortal Kombat X in which she believes her likeness was stolen for character Cassie Cage. She has even gone as far as posting on her Instagram a comparison compilation between pictures she previously posted and their “Mortal Kombat X” counterparts. What do you think?
GTA V streamers have their game stolen live
Several notable streamers while downloading GTA V had their game key pop up on screen when it finished and consequently had their codes stolen by viewers. Two of those streamers are Mr. Boss, a YouTuber, and Kaceytron, a Twitch streamer, both had codes stolen from their live broadcasts. Mr. Boss eventually got a refund from Steam Support, even receiving a “care package” from Rockstar Games, while Kaceytron used another copy to continue forward. What’s the lesson in all of this? Maybe people should install their game before they start to stream to a live audience!
Orange wins another major Hearthstone title
Jon “Orange” Westberg from Team Archon, just four weeks from when he won first place at ESL Katowice, has taken down another field of 32 players at Seat Story Cup III hosted by TaKeTV. Jon will take home a $10,000 prize for this win and is now ranked number one in the world from GosuGamers. Not too shabby for a Hearthstone player we did not hear much about until only a few months ago.
Hearthstone is now more mobile
Speaking of Hearthstone, Blizzard Entertainment has released their collectible card game onto iOS and Android phones.

Also, as an added bonus you will receive a free “Classic” card pack when you complete your first game on both Android and iOS devices.
Garrisons, the mainstay of Warlords of Draenor, are getting a “small” expansion in the next upcoming patch for World of Warcraft, featuring the ability to unlock and ship shipyards able of carrying out naval missions. Although not much is known at this time, the system will be a welcome change as it’s the first expansion of the physical plots at your garrison to date. Regular dungeons are also getting an upgrade as “Mythic” difficulty is being added to Draenor Dungeons. Another feature in the upcoming patch returns us to Tanaan, with the Invasion of Tanaan Jungle questline, which will include completing daily quests with open world questing and treasure hunting. Lastly, you will be able to take the fight in Tanaan straight to some of the key demon enemies of this story, bringing adventurers toe to toe with the likes of Kilrogg Deadeye, Gorefiend, Mannoroth, and Archimonde himself.
