If you're like many people out there who couldn't get enough of former MMA fighter Gina Carano in Haywire, her lead-role debut, then you'll be pleased to know that she is in serious to talks to become one of the lucky participants in the next Fast and the Furious chapter.
Whether her drifting skills are as sharp as her submissions will remain to be seen.
The good people over at The Nerdpocalypse Blog shared some of their martial arts love with the interweb today in a fun little post featuring some of the most amazing fight scenes from 80s martial arts movies. We posted one of our favorites from the list above, although it's close call between this and the Lords of Death Street fight.
Check out the source link to see the full post from Nerpocalypse, and continue reading to see the other Big Trouble In Little China fight we're talking about. We like to remain fair and objective here on the KarateMart.com Blog.
Now if you have to ask us what Big Trouble In Little China is, you may turn away in shame...go on.
For those of you who may not know, Usagi Yojimbo is just about as awesome as an anthropomorphic, samurai sword wielding, rabbit can ever get. Originally from a popular comic series by Stan Sakai, teh comic stars Usagi, rabbit who has assumed the role of a ronin in feudal Japan. Adventures ensue, honor is upheld, and a strict code of Bushido is adhered to. Seriously, you should take a weekend to acquaint yourself with the series. It's amazing.
The motion comic above, which was just launched by Dark Horse Comics today, provides a brilliant taste of Usagi both for newcomers and seasoned veterans alike. Oh, and if you're wondering where else you've seen this long-eared wanderer, you just have to think back to your early Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles days. He has had cameos in both the comics and the television series of the Turtles.
For the few of you out there that may have purchased Ninja Gaiden 3 before reading the terrible reviews it received, you'll at least have a little DLC to look forward to today. Not content with releasing a sub=par Ninja Gaiden sequel, the developers have decided to offer players a free "Ultimate Ninja" difficulty upgrade. You know, in case you didn't think it was bad hard enough the first time through.
The update also adds Ninja Trial and extra, customizable items for the low low price of $9.99.
Last week Mortal Kombat fans were teased with two very short (but very pretty) live action trailers starring female fighters Kitana and Mileena. Their newest trailer pretty much combines the last two into a full minute-and-a-half video which also teases some actual gameplay footage.
While the port is looking good from what we can tell, someone needs to just hurry up and greenlight a feature-length movie already. I've a sneaking suspicion that one or two people would watch something like that.
