Super Desperation Radio Episode 335 Archive Online

The latest episode of Super Desperation Radio is now available for watching on IPLAYWINNER'S YouTube channel.

It was a wild and, at times, seemingly random episode of Super Desperation Radio this week.

The recent parting of ways between Super Arcade and Level|Up in SoCal was the big news that opened the episode. The cast talked about the schedule of Super going forward; how tournaments and streams could change; and where Level|Up may choose to take its brand in the future.

The show then mentioned several other news pieces before Walkman broached the show-extending topic of what makes a video game "good" or "bad." Factors such as nostalgia and technology were taken into consideration as the hosts weighed in with their thoughts about "retro" games versus modern titles and whether objectivity can actually exist in game reviews.

Super Desperation Radio is live every Monday at 6:30 p.m. PST on Twitch and YouTube.

FightCade, an Alternative Online Fighting Game Service to GGPO & Supercade

A new program emerges for those who want to play their favorite older fighting games.

Previously called GGPO-NG, FightCade is a middleware that acts similar to GGPO and Supercade where players can play games like Super Street Fighter II Turbo and The King of Fighters '98 with rollbacking netcode.

FightCade was developed in response to both maintenance concerns in GGPO and Supercade according to developer Pau "Pof" Oliva. Pof used many aspects of the GGPO program as the basis for FightCade. He also developed the program to be open source for community contributions.

Along with the games featured GGPO, FightCade also has more in their library list. In addition, the program features a network technique where players don't have to forward ports. Replays are also auto saved in the server end.

You can register and download now, includes Windows, Mac OSX and Linux downloads, on the website!

New Shirt Design from Hungry Human, Better Together, Now Available for Preorder

Even in times where it can be rough, there are people that will always care about you.

The newest design from Hungry Human is all about that camaraderie. Influenced by creator Larry Smith's past experience, "Better Together" shows both Drum H. Sticks and Waffle H. "Wawful" Batter as the best of friends walking with high spirits. Despite Drum's outgoing temper and Wawful's more snarky behavior, they are the right match for each other and will be ready to face the world.

Better Together is available for preorder now in both t-shirt and crewneck sweatshirt. Both versions are available in white, heather black and heather grey colors. In addition, Smith wants people to spread the word about these shirts to friends, family and other close ones. Bringing everyone together much like Drum and Wawful are. The more support for these shirts, the stronger the message will become. Who doesn't like chicken and waffles anyways?

The shirts are set to ship midway through November. You can read a detailed background of Better Together's creation below.

Super Desperation Radio Episode 334 Archive Online

The latest episode of Super Desperation Radio is now available for watching on IPLAYWINNER'S YouTube channel.

Super Desperation Radio opened with talk of the recent Mastercup 7 Tekken tournament in Japan. Several of the cast managed to catch pieces of the show and its great high-level play, but the more than 15 hours of continuous action were too much for any one person at SDR to watch in one sitting. 

Talk then moved to 4Gamer's Guilty Gear Xrd wiki and how experienced players can use it—even with poor Google translation—to find out what the new game will have in store for them when it releases next month.

Lastly, the conversation moved to 37 Reloaded and the question about whether the various tournaments will live up to expectations, or if competitors will be out of practice.

Super Desperation Radio is live every Monday at 6:30 p.m. PST on Twitch and YouTube.

Street Fighter EX2+ Corner Cross-Up Setups by Nerdjosh

Nerdjosh has created a short video that details some of the corner setups that players can create in SFEX2+.

According to Nerdjosh, normally it is impossible for players to cross up an opponent holding back in the corner, but these examples show how players can get around that protection to create great corner pressure and mixups.

The video contains setups for M. Bison, Sagat, Pullum and Darun.

Hit the jump for the video.

Guilty Gear Xrd Character Guides, Frame Data by 4Gamer

Japan's 4Gamer has created its own Guilty Gear Xrd -Sign- wiki, complete with breakdowns of each character in the game. The character pages have basic information, such as move lists and biographies, but also show the ways a character's normals can chain—in GG terms, gatling—and include combo videos with slow motion replays in case viewers could not see the moves used in regular speed.

The biggest thing the 4Gamer site offers to Guilty Gear veterans, however, is the inclusion of frame data for each of the characters in the arcade version of Guilty Gear Xrd.

While the entire wiki is in Japanese, the site offers a starting resource for U.S. Gears players who are already thinking about Dec. 16.

Super Desperation Radio Episode 333 Archive Online

The latest episode of Super Desperation Radio is now available for watching on IPLAYWINNER'S YouTube channel.

Twitch's new rules regarding what streamers can and cannot wear opened SDR, as the cast discussed Twitch's conduct policy and its sometimes apparent lack of enforcement.

Staying on the topic of stream behavior, the conversation moved to the recent grudge matches at Wednesday Night Fights and the lost art of trash talk. The crew made it a point to note that there are always lines players and spectators should not cross when simply trying to get under another competitor's skin.

Lastly, SDR talked about the forthcoming NEC, mentioning the KOFXIII tournament and the Japanese competitors showing up for airdash titles.

Super Desperation Radio is live every Monday at 6:30 p.m. PST on Twitch and YouTube.

Twitch Rules of Conduct Updated, Code of Dress Clarified

Game streaming platform Twitch has updated its Rules of Conduct, focusing on the type of clothing that will be allowed on streams starting on Oct. 27, 2014. The policy now reads:

Wearing no clothing or sexually suggestive clothing - including lingerie, swimsuits, pasties, and undergarments - is prohibited, as well as any full nude torsos*, which applies to both male and female broadcasters. You may have a great six-pack, but that's better shared on the beach during a 2-on-2 volleyball game blasting "Playing with the Boys."

* If it's unbearably hot where you are, and you happen to have your shirt off (guys) or a bikini top (grills), then just crop the webcam to your face. Problem solved.

We sell t-shirts, and those are always acceptable. #Kappa

Violations of the new policy will result in channel or account suspension.
