With a title like World Heroes, this game has to be good! Right? And when we say World Heroes you know what kind of game it is! No? Good, we didn’t either. So this week, courtesy of the Randomizer, we play the Street Fight clone “World Heroes”. Maybe the only game where Rasputin and a Nazi Robot are “heroes”. Also, we had to bring on our premier fightologist, Wizened Sage Ian to help cover the game. If you need to hear about building a deck AND the light touch in quantum mechanics then this is the episode for you.
Tyler and Dave love fighting games. Especially Dave. So the Randomizer went full Monkey’s Paw with giving us Power Moves, a clone of a clone of a clone of Street Fighter II. But don’t worry – we also have some hot takes on Jared from Subway and clear up out stance on the edgiest of issues.
Hi everyone! Do you like Street Fighter? Me too! What about sculptures? ME TOO! How about the 90s? YES! Do you know what you get when you smash together those elements in the vaguest way possible? CLAYFIGHTER! Do you remember loving it? Come with us and take off those nostalgia glasses and give it another go!
Do you LOVE Conan the Barbarian? Do you love him so much you’ll consume anything vaguely resembling him, including media that stole his imagine just to capitalize on his popularity? Do you LOVE poorly designed fighting games released far after any time that it could have been relevant? No? Good, because no one does. But theoretically if such an audience existed then WE TOTALLY HAVE A GAME FOR YOU! BATTLE BLAZE! Don’t worry – not only do we do a deep dive into this ridiculousness, we also discuss odd fetishes and Richard Dawson. So come on down and enjoy our misery.
By the grace of The Randomizer, welcome to our Art of Fighting episode where we talk about parenting a lot. But not just parenting, we recast Sex and the City with Street Fighter characters (it’s pretty perfect, don’t worry.). A defense is made for Monster energy drink and to better protect our Kyles. Have you wanted to hear an official prayer to The Randomizer? Good, we have one for review. Also, we debate whether or not Tyler should send pictures of his vasectomy, by request, to the sweetest fan from the Isle of Man.
Happy (day after) New Year! Now that we have severely dated yet another episode—Chocto (you know him from YouTube) joins us on this one to talk about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch. Yes, we realize this game is less than a month old. It hardly qualifies as an “old game” but we do our best to shoehorn retro gaming references in (okay, maybe not our best). We focus on the Adventure Mode a lot but we also talk about the game in a broader sense, and we end up talking about previous Smash Bros. games as well. Of course we talk about our mains and speculate on DLC fighters. During the middle of the show a strange package from Link makes an appearance. We wrap things up by tackling a Smash Quiz that was sent in by Quiz Master Bovine Bear Matt.
Now let’s come out boxing! So far we’ve been playing through the NES Classic games alphabetically, but for this episode we’re switching up the order for a special reason. Drew Rowland (long-time listener, fellow podcaster and friend of the show) is tying the knot with Bailey (of Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker fame) this week! Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!! is one of Drew’s favorite games of all time, so we’ve decided to talk about it and it’s rerelease, Punch-Out!! (with Mr. Dream), in honor of the upcoming nuptials. Um, we also explore some dark places on this episode…so enjoy that! And don’t forget to join the Nintendo Fan Club today! Continue reading →
We’re back on the Digital Trends list this week—which can only mean one thing—it’s time for Super Street Fighter II for the Sega Genesis. We talk about the game for a bit, but more importantly, we try a Marmite grilled cheese sandwich. We also open a listener package, pee in Swift the fox’s mouth, and brainstorm some charity stream ideas. Continue reading →
