As it turns out, the death of the handheld has been greatly exaggerated. Despite the iPhone (and the iPad) conquering all, and what their advocates will tell you, many out there are still interested in dedicated gaming devices.

Case in point: the 3DS has just surpassed the Wii when it comes to lifetime sales, in Japan at least.

The launch of "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" Season two kicks off our coverage of new fights (and fighters) for the Machinima web series. Check out the first episode below. Later today, we'll bring you interviews with some of the stars and creators who've brought the battle for Earthrealm to your PC.

LIVE - Interview: Mark Dacascos (Kung Lao)
4:30 EST - Interview: Director Kevin Tancharoen

"I get to be Johnny Cage!" That's actor Casper Van Dien musing on his luck at this stage in his career. The actor was thrilled to find the online response to his role (one fan tweeted "F---ing Johnny Rico is f---ing Johnny Cage" when the cast was first announced last year). Van Dien joins the cast of the second season of "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" as the down-on-his-luck actor, and recently, we spoke about the ups and downs of an action career, the fate of perhaps his most famous character, Johnny Rico, and making "Mortal Kombat" a family affair.

Considering the huge phenomena that the "Angry Birds" franchise has become, it's hardly a shocker to hear that a kart racing game that cashes in on the hysteria is forthcoming.

Admittedly, such a thing sounds fairly pedestrian, coming off the heels of a "Star Wars" mash-up. But hey, if money is to be made, Rovio will find a way.

The launch of "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" Season two kicks off our coverage of new fights (and fighters) for the Machinima web series. Check out the first episode below. Later today, we'll bring you interviews with some of the stars and creators who've brought the battle for Earthrealm to your PC.

2:30 EST - Interview: Casper Van Dien (Johnny Cage)
4:30 EST - Interview: Director Kevin Tancharoen

He's played everything from a heartbroken assassin ("Crying Freeman") to the Crow ("The Crow: Stairway to Heaven"), to a turbo-charged martial artist with a super-powered heart (my personal favorite, "Drive"), and this week, six-time award-winning Kung Fu and karate champion martial artist Mark Dacascos takes on the role he feels he was born to play: Shaolin monk Kung Lao in the second season of "Mortal Kombat: Legacy."

Dacascos and I spoke about why this role was, in a way, a dream come true, the joy (and literal pain) of shooting with a smaller budget, and how "Mortal Kombat" and Buddhism make sense together.

Masahiro Sakurai, the mind behind "Super Smash Bros", has released another image from the upcoming Wii U version on his Miiverse page.

And the previous installment had Sakurai plus others involved posting odd screenshots here and there, but the image above is something completely different. From the looks of it, Mario and Peach are tying the knot?

No matter how well prepared a publisher might be, any online game (or simply a game that has online elements) is going to have difficulties at launch.

EA had them with "Sim City", Square Enix had some also with "A Real Reborn: Final Fantasy 14", and Rockstar will more than likely will as well the online component of "Grand Theft Auto 5".

Says who? Rockstar themselves.

Director Kevin Tancharoen returns for a second season of "Mortal Kombat: Legacy," introducing new combatants--er, kombatants--in the second round. The first episode kicks off with a drunken Liu Kang (Brian Tee, "The Wolverine") getting saved by fellow Shaolin monk Kung Lao (Mark Dacoscos, "The Brotherhood of the Wolf") in a seedy Macau bar. Limbs will be shattered and teeth unexpectedly removed as Liu Kang deals with some anger issues.
