Mortal Kombat 1 Fatalities: how to do every character’s Fatality

What set the Mortal Kombat franchise apart when it first hit arcades was just how brutally violent the games were. It looks tame now, but the Fatalities of the original game were some of the most shocking things anyone had seen in a game up to that point, pixelated graphics and all. With Mortal Kombat 1, NetherRealm continues to churn our stomachs with some of the most disgustingly detailed ways to dismantle your opponent. Everyone loves seeing these creative ways your favorite fighter can definitively end a fight, but if you want to show off to your friends and humiliate your enemy, you have to know the specific button input to pull it off for each character. There are more that you can unlock, but here is how to perform every character’s basic Fatality in Mortal Kombat 1.

How to perform all basic Fatalities

Here are all the default inputs for every character’s Fatality on PlayStation and Xbox controls in alphabetical order, as well as what range you need to be at to trigger the Fatality. Once you have reduced your opponent’s health to 0 and they are susceptible to a Fatality, which you will know from the announcer calling out “Finish him” or “Finish her,” you will have five seconds to input the correct sequence.

How to get Structural Materials in Starfield
Starfield planet.

Starfield has a massive expanded the amount of things you can build and craft. From entire Outposts to weapon mods and research projects, everything you want to craft will require specific materials to create. These materials will be found all over the various planets, either as lootable objects, ores you need to mine, or even as items you can purchase from various vendors, but some will always be harder to find than others. Structural Materials, while not the rarest resource, are used in nearly every aspect of Outpost building and upgrades. If you're running low on this crucial building block, here's how to get more Structural Materials in Starfield.
Ways to get Structural Materials

Like any resource in Starfield, there's more than one way to get your hands on Structural Materials. The easiest, but most expensive, will be to simply buy them from one of the many shops around the galaxy. Vendors' stock is slightly variable from day to day, but you can typically rely on any of your more "general" stores to carry this common material, such as the Jemison Mercantile in New Atlantis or Shepard's General Store on Akila. Each vendor will only hold a specific amount, so if you need a lot, you will need to do a little legwork. After buying out everything a vendor has, if you wait for 24 hours at a chair or bed, you can go back and their stock will be replenished.

How to unlock the Pilgrim’s room in Starfield
Cockpit in spaceship from Starfield.

For the most part, the main questline in Starfield won't challenge you too much in terms of puzzle-solving. Missions tend to boil down to getting an objective, fast traveling to a location, and following your marker until you collect an Artifact. Since you can only unlock all the powers by going through the main quests, you will at least want to complete most of them before going off and doing all the faction missions, outpost building, or general space exploration. There's one mission, though, that can be a roadblock if you're not extra observant and invested in reading all the lore. If you don't know the answers to opening the Pilgrim's Computer in Starfield, here is all the information you need.
Pilgrim Computer's answers

After you arrive at Pilgrim's Rest and explore, you will be led to the small base that's full of notes, among dozens of other items. Your objective is behind a locked door that asks you a few questions that you're supposed to learn the answers to by hunting down and reading all the notes. This isn't a door you can lockpick no matter how high your skill level is, so selecting the right answers is the only way forward. Here are all the questions you will be asked, and the correct responses:

How to buy a house in Starfield
Spaceship on planet in Starfield.

Even though you will be spending the majority of your time in Starfield sitting in your ship or exploring the various planets across the universe, you won't have a true place to call your own unless you buy a house. Unlike your ship or the room you're given in Constellation, getting your own home lets you decorate, rest, and really just have a place to make your own. Getting a house isn't mandatory, nor is it even that easy to do. You'll need more than just a pocket full of Credits, so here are the ways you can get yourself a house in Starfield.
Ways to get a house

There are a couple of ways to get a house in Starfield, with the easiest to simply take the Dream Home trait when building your character. This will automatically give you a home after a quick quest, but it isn't free. You will need to pay off a huge 125,000 Credit mortgage before it's officially yours.
