Plus Topanga tier lists, Super Smash Bros. online events and more
As if NetherRealm Studios' massive Mortal Kombat 11 reveal event wasn't enough, we got pretty massive news about this last week from seemingly all the corners of the fighting game landscape.
We kick off this week's podcast with Steven "Dreamking" Chavez as he was able to make it to MK1
Catalyst and I jump into some recent happenings in Dragon Ball FighterZ, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Street Fighter 5 as developer-driven tours and / or leagues for all three at this point.
After a month with no direct SF5 Season 4 news, I'm starting to feel less and less motivated to play. It may not be representative of the entire community by any means, I have heard others share similar sentiments.
We close things out with a discussion of why SF5 is feeling something like a sinking ship at the moment, and what Capcom needs
