Super Desperation Radio Episode 315 Archive Online

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

After a one-week vacation, the SDR cast bid a fond farewell to the UFGT tournament series and looked forward toward Combo Breaker to start the show.

However, the big topics this week veered away from gaming news and into community issues as the state of pro gaming took priority. From the Capcom Pro Tour to the huge prize money being offered in the Dota2 world championships, SDR talked about how the future is bright for gaming if companies take the right steps to fund and promote their brands.

The other big discussion involved the "legitimacy" of tournaments and tournament wins, and the trash talk that has always existed in competitive gaming. Walkman in particular was very vocal about his feelings toward players who do not show up trying to take away the accomplishments of those who made the effort to come out and compete.

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

Mortal Kombat X Revealed, First Appearance at E3 2014

NetherRealm Studios and Warner Brothers Games have released the first trailer for the upcoming Mortal Kombat X. The video, which shows series mainstays Scorpion and Sub Zero fighting in a snowy forest, unveils a new graphics engine for the series while seemingly showing the return of MK9-style gameplay. X-Rays have returned, and many of the other moves and movements of the characters are indicative of MK9's playstyle.

But the video also shows the two characters interacting with the stage in ways new to Mortal Kombat, slamming into trees and using the environment to hurt one another. While Mortal Kombat 4 first introduced weapons to the series, the MKX trailer points to more Injustice-style stage hazards as the possible direction for the upcoming game.

No other information about MKx is available at this time, but according to WB Games UK, MKX will make its first public appearance at E3 2014, June 10-12. The game will be released for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC. Hit the jump for the trailer.
