Footage of Predator in Mortal Kombat X Surfaces

Predator is the next DLC character coming to NetherRealm Studios' MKX, but he currently has only a loose release date of sometime in July. However, after it was revealed that Predator's data was present in the most recent balance patch to MKX, players knew it was only a matter of time before information about the character became public.

User Sonicdude20th on XboxClips has uploaded six videos of Predator from the game's challenge tower, showing all three variations: Hunter, Warrior and Hish-Qu-Ten. It is not clear what all defines each variation, but Hunter utilizes traps; Warrior features some kind of energy shield; and Hish-Qu-Ten comes complete with the Predator's shoulder cannon. The videos even feature one of the character's brutalities.

Bandai Namco Teases Tekken Announcement

With the recent reports of the U.S. getting Tekken 7 machines and the return of Tekken Crash, Bandai Namco is certainly making sure its newest fighter is making headlines across the gaming community. However, it seems that the company is not done yet.

The official Tekken Project Twitter account claims a big Tekken announcement will be coming on July 7. The tweet offered little other information, but did mention that the series recently celebrated its 20th anniversary and features an image that reads "awaken, raging fist."

For now, players are left to speculate what information could be forthcoming.

Defending Against Sol in Guilty Gear Xrd by Japhro77

YouTube user Japhro77 has produced an almost eight-minute video tutorial about the many ways players can, should and should not act when pressured by Sol Badguy in Guilty Gear Xrd. The video covers many common scenarios, including Gun Flame, Bandit Bringer and Fafnir pressure, and while all of the footage was recorded in the corner it applies to many situations in the middle of the screen as well.

Each option for the defending player is color coded to describe the amount of risk intrinsic to the defensive option. While no option is 100 percent risk free, the video should give many players an idea of how they can escape Sol's pressure if they are prepared for it.

Ed Boon Hinting at Future Alien DLC for Mortal Kombat X?

Mortal Kombat series creator Ed Boon likes to throw not-so-subtle hints about upcoming projects onto his Twitter feed. He did it with the Kombat Pack characters, and he may once again be referencing an upcoming character with a pair of tweets in the last week.

After E3 2015, Boon posted what seemed at the time like a tongue-in-cheek joke about exclusives at the show:

E3 was great because we didn't have to show a new game. All I had to worry about was the secret room we were showing Terminator & Alien DLC.

While that post alone got the Internet rumor mill spinning about the possibility of both characters coming to Mortal Kombat X, Boon then added another tweet on June 24 showing a Blu-ray of the movie Alien on a store shelf. This only further suggested that fans may indeed see xenomorphs show up in MKX's future.

It should be noted, however, that neither tweet is proof of anything yet. And while the inclusion of Predator in MKX seems like a great opportunity to revive a famous comic and cinematic rivalry, it remains to be seen whether it will actually be happening.

New Mortal Kombat X Patch Brings Big Changes to Kitana, Others

The newest patch notes for Mortal Kombat X are live, and there are a lot of changes to many characters in the game. One of the characters to receive the most changes is Kitana, who got buffs on many of her moves and combos. In most cases, her moves are now much less punishable on block, which could mean big things for that character as the game moves forward.

There are also plenty of changes for Reptile, who received mostly damage buffs, and Goro, who received increases to on-hit advantage for some of his moves. Characters who may have come out worse in this patch include D'Vorah, Scorpion and Tanya, whose moves were adjusted after her release.

With CEO only days away, it will be interesting to see if Alex Jebailey allows this most recent patch to be used in the tournament. He is currently taking player feedback.

X-Arcade Developing Xbox One & PlayStation 4 Controller Adapters

American-style arcade stick company X-Arcade is trying to tap into the current generation of consoles with new converters.

On their webstore, they are currently selling PlayStation 2 to Xbox One adapters. The adapter bears similarity to various PS2 to Xbox 360 converters. While mainly intended to work with X-Arcade's own arcade stick to PS2 converters, the listing shows that the XB1 converter can work with regular PS2 controllers. The device also apparently doesn't need a separate XB1 controller for authorization.

In addition, X-Arcade is currently developing an all-in-one solution for both XB1 and PlayStation 4. At the moment, there is no detailed information behind this device but the company is currently testing the converter.

Super Desperation Radio Episode 417 Archive Online

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

The aftermath of E3 2015 was the biggest topic as SuperFX, Hellpockets and Giby discussed their experiences at the show and talked about the different new titles they saw. As this was the first E3 for both SuperFX and Hellpockets, both had a bit to say about the event and what the atmosphere was like in the hall.

And of course there couldn't be conversation about E3 without talking about Street Fighter V, as both Giby and Hellpockets tried the game out. They gave their initial impressions and the whole cast talked about the positive reaction to this early build of the game.

Aside from the barrage of E3 news, SDR also briefly talked about the coming of Tekken 7 to U.S. Round 1 locations, and mentioned the recent Guilty Gear Xrd Revelator location tests in Japan. 

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

Tekken 7 Coming to U.S. Round 1 Locations

After months of speculation on if and when Tekken 7 will be coming to the U.S. shores in its arcade iteration, there is finally some good news. Sources inside Round 1, the Japanese amusement center that has opened U.S. locations in the last several years, say that three of the company's stores will be getting Tekken 7 in early July.

There is currently no firm date for the U.S. roll-out, but the stores in Seattle, Chicago and the Puente Hills Mall location in Southern California will be the first three locations to have the new Namco fighter.

This is great news for the U.S. arcade scene, but it remains to be seen whether this will have any visible effect on the players travelling to Las Vegas for Evolution 2015. It is also not clear if the other Round 1 locations in the U.S. will be getting the game at a later time.

Street Fighter V Casuals from E3 by NerdJosh

While the strategies and ideas may not be useful in the final version of SFV, NerdJosh's videos are an interesting look into the public testing phase of fighters and how a game can evolve over such a short period of time. The videos can all be found on NerdJosh's channel.

Killer Instinct Coming to PC

During the PC gaming press conference at E3 2015, Microsoft announced that Killer Instinct will be coming to Windows with cross-platform play. The company did not have anything else to add at this time, but Iron Galaxy's Adam Heart took to Twitter and offered these words to the gaming public:

"I've seen some of you saying you like certain things about SFV, and KI has a ton of those things. With PC release, more of you will find out."

IG's Dave Lang also confirmed the studio will be handling Killer Instinct's port from Xbox One to PC. There is no release date for KI on PC at this time.
