The Predator’s arrival this week in Mortal Kombat X isn’t exactly unprecedented, considering that the skull-collecting alien hunter has been the ultimate crossover star since the ’90s. But he’s not the first Hollywood character to make an appearance in an unrelated game, either, so we thought it’d be fun to look at five other instances when film icons suddenly showed up in games that had nothing to do with their movies. Then there’s some brief talk about Skullgirls: 2nd Encore and Rocket League, a quick run through some pre-Comic-Con news, and a look at your favorite games of 2015 so far.
Question of the Week
What’s the worst or most embarrassing question you could think of to ask Shigeru Miyamoto? (Make it funny!)
