We have a very vocal group of fighting game fans here at 'Remember The Game?', and I do my best to satiate them. I just didn't play a lot of fighters growing up. I thought I was throwing them a bone with Shaq-Fu a little while back, but that went across like a slap in the face (which would be my signature move if I was in a fighting game). So we're taking it up a notch.
Killer Instinct is one of the rare (pun intended) fighters I played growing up. And while I stink at it, I really like this game. It was, and is, so damned cool! So we're giving it a chance to escape the shadows of Street Fighter and Mortal Kombat this week on the show.
My guest is making his RTG debut. He's a fighting fan and the Killer to my Instinct; Mike the Ref! Mike grew up playing KI in the arcade, I played it on the Game Boy (ugh) and the SNES (yay) and we're showing Rare's little fighter some love on this episode of the podcast.
And before we talk the instincts of killers, it's another edition of the 'Remember The Game Infamous Intro'!
This time around, we talk about the recently announced Steam Deck and whether it's a threat to Nintendo's handheld crown. We also get into games we wanted to get into, but never did. And a listener writes in with a tale of gaming heartbreak, which prompts Adam to revisit one of his most traumatic gaming memories.
AND, we have another round of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One', featuring retro fighters Street Fighter II, Mortal Kombat 3 and Killer Instinct!
