Super Desperation Radio Episode 338 Archive Online

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

With only a couple days before the Japanese Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- console release, SDR focused on the latest information for the game. This included a discussion of Sin and Elphelt, who were both added to 4Gamer's wiki of the title.

The wiki spawned another conversation, as Sanchez tried to answer why Google's automatic translation revealed the word "trombone" in the descriptions of many normal attacks throughout the guide. Thanks to the help of Ayaikun, the cast was mostly able to figure that out.

Meanwhile, with Northeast Championships coming on Dec. 5-7, SDR also talked about the number of entrants for UNIEL and why social media activity is not always indicative of a game's popularity.

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

Latest PlayStation 4 System Software Disables Compatibility from Akishop Customs' PS360+

Players won't be able to try out the North American demo of Guilty Gear Xrd -SIGN- with the popular all-in-one controller board.

The recent firmware updates done to the PlayStation 4's operating system have prevented Akishop Customs' PS360+ board to work on the platform. At the moment, players are limited to using the DualShock 4 controller, arcade sticks licensed by Sony or padhacking the DS4.

Akishop Customs originally had plans to feature full PS4 compatibility on its board. Due to console limitations, the feature was limited to eight minutes of use per plug in. The company included this short-term solution on version 1.4 and 1.5.

Despite this disadvantage, the PS360+ (version 1.5) can still work on PlayStation 4 but only limited to Skullgirls on PS4 or any other game that features the custom compatibility software.

Combofiend Details New Ultra Street Fighter IV Patch

Capcom has revealed the details of its new patch to USFIV, numbered 1.04. On his Capcom blog, Combofiend writes that Edition Select will now be added to unranked online play, and that the omega versions of each character will be selectable in that mode. Omega characters will only be usable in Edition Select, as there is no omega mode in the game.

Combo adds that the trials for characters will be updated to reflect changes in Ultra, and that new trials for Yun, Yang, Oni, Evil Ryu, Hugo, Elena, Decapre, Poison and Rolento will be added to the game.

Patch 1.04 will also include new balance changes to make all characters viable—Combofiend singles out DeeJay especially—and fixes to the recently discovered Vega and Yun bugs.

Lastly, the download will contain the compatibility files for the new wild costumes, which will be available for purchase. Combofiend, however, did not give a date for the patch at this time, saying only that it would release "shortly after Capcom Cup."

Learn Faust Quickly by Honzo Gonzo

Honzo Gonzo is learning Guilty Gear XX Accent Core +R in anticipation of the release of Xrd in December, and he has released two small videos for Faust that may help other players new to the game. The first video is a brief rundown of combos that +R Faust can do that will still work in the new Gear title, and the second is a brief description of the main tools players will need to know as they work to improve their gameplay.

Both of these videos are targeted at new players, so they do not touch on more advanced combo techniques such as jump installing and do not explain in depth how to execute Faust's fautless defense cancel. And while Faust has several changes to his special moves and normals in Xrd, these two guides should help players looking for a quick breakdown of how the character handles as they venture into Guilty Gear.

Hit the jump for the videos.
