Arnaldo and Paul are both surprised to learn that each wanted to do an episode on old video game favourite, Punch Out!! (even if nobody else did!). Too bad for them though, because this episode is a great time, starting off with our experiences with the game and boxing in general (1:00) followed by a look at the original Nintendo arcade cabinet, Punch Out!! featuring Italy's pride, Pizza Pasta and his origin story (14:00). The arcade version of Super Punch Out!! is up next featuring Paul's doppelganger, Canadian Bear Hugger (40:00), unlicensed knockoff Frank Bruno's boxing (49:30) and, of course, the video game that truly started it all, Mike Tyson's Punch Out!! for the NES (55:00). Next we discuss the SNES version of Super Punch Out!! and its shameless subversion of sacred boxing rules (1:22:30) followed by the triumphant Punch Out!! for the Nintendo Wii (1:41:30).
