Mortal Kombat X / Titan Souls: Thumbstick Atheltes Podcast Episode 195

We briefly cover two new releases this week, the first being the AAA release and newest entry in a classic franchise, Mortal Kombat X.  Eric covers MKX for us, and as a disclaimer, we approach the fighting game genre from a noob perspective with the exception Will and the Smash Bros. series.  Eric's thoughts on MKX are from someone who hasn't played much Mortal Kombat since the 2nd or 3rd games in the series, and whether or not MKX is worth the $60 price tag for a non fighting game fan.  Dan and Corey then briefly talk about Titan Souls because....there isn't a ton to talk about.
