Persona 4 Arena Ultimax Will Use Current Version at Evo 2015

According to Atlus, players will not be receiving the 2.0 update for P4A2 before Evolution 2015 in July. On the official Atlus Twitter, the company wrote

"Regarding Persona 4 Arena Ultimax at EVO: We are confirming that the current PS3 console version will be the version used at ."

This is a relief to some players, who feared that the U.S. would not be getting the updated version of the game until weeks before the event, but a disappointment to others who hoped to have the newest version by July.

The arcade version of Persona 4 Arena Ultimax 2.0 released in Japan in January 2015.

Super Desperation Radio Episode 406 Archive Online

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

Results of Final Round 18 turned into a conversation about treating other games and communities well on this week's SDR. Starting with the problems of Final Round due to other events running over, the cast talked about how no game or its players should be treated like an outcast.

The conversation then moved to Mortal Kombat X and the myriad spoilers that have come out for the game in recent weeks. Everyone then wondered how the delay of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions of the game would affect players going Evolution 2015.

Lastly, with many players looking to invest in a fighting stick for PS4, SDR discussed the pros and cons of both the Mad Catz TE2 and the Hori V4.

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

San Diego's Saltmines Closing

In a time when arcades and fighting game venues are scarce, it's never welcome news to hear the loss of another place to play. However, San Diego Fighting Game Club will be losing its Saltmines on May 30, 2015.

The location has been watched over by community members since SDFGC Director Ryan Tang's departure to Northern California for a job during June 2014. Tang had been the caretaker of the Saltmines when he was living in San Diego, and has continued to help pay for the venue with Lan Diego, which has co-occupied the space.

In a post on his Facebook, Tang thanked everyone in the SDFGC and explained the Saltmines' closure:

For those of you who are not aware, I moved from San Diego to Northern California in June of 2014 to accept a job offer that I could not refuse. Since then, the Saltmines has been watched over by community members, who have sacrificed time, money, and sleep to keep it alive. I have seen them all pitch in so much and unselfishly give so that others could have, and this has troubled me to no end. It pains me a great deal to see my friends give up so much for something that I should be taking responsibility for.

So, due to my inability to contribute more of my time and energy to the Saltmines, partially due to my geographical location, but more so due to my new focus on other aspects of my life, I have decided to make this our final year.

DOA 5: Last Round for PC Shipping without Online, Other Features

While it's good to see console fighting games spread to PC, Siliconera is reporting that Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is losing some features during the transition.

According to specifications posted by Team Ninja, DOA5LR will release at the end of March without online play and some of the graphical features present in Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game. It will also not include the two new stages added to those versions.

While Team Ninja does plan to add online "within three months of launch," it's disappointing to see PC users not being given the full game experience. There is also no word as to whether the developers plan to try and add the next-gen stages to the PC version in the future.

For Siliconera's full list of PC "quirks," hit the jump.

Review - Sanwa Denshi LB-30N-CW Clear Bat Top

Sanwa Denshi LB-30N-CL installed to a Seimitsu LS-32 lever on a Mad Catz Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2.The redesigned Arcade Shock website has introduced a number of new products, most notably the Hori Real Arcade Pro 4 Premium VLX Kuro arcade stick. However, the site also features a simple accessory that I was excited for since seeing it at EVO 2014: Sanwa Denshi's transparent bat top. While the company had already produced bat tops for its JLF and JLW series of levers, none of them were transparent.

The popular arcade stick parts company now has a clear bat top, which is a neat little product. Much like its look, the draw of the bat top is transparent. It's clear, looks nice and feels really good. Players who use Sanwa's older series of bat tops will like this new model.
