ARGcast #171: Retro Fighting Games w/ Ash Paulsen and Andre Tipton

by ARGcast

Ready your fists and kick some butt with us as we celebrate the fighting game genre with Ash Paulsen of GameXplain and Andre Tipton of Real Otaku Gamer.

We’re gonna take you for a ride, ARGoanuts! Join us for a look back at fighting games in history from Street Fighter to… Ranma 1/2? Ash Paulsen of GameXplain and Andre Tipton of Real Otaku Gamer come on board to share in our fandom. Plus we read responses from listeners like YOU!

This week’s news is kicked off with everything revealed during EVO. Ash also gives his firsthand impressions attending the fighting game event. That’s followed by President Trump (once again) scapegoating video games, Bully 2 rumors, Brawlhalla crossing over with WWE, and NES Kid Icarus selling for $9,000!

The Stage of History brings the pain with Tekken 3 and Capcom vs. SNK 2. Robert then kicks some shell with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Tournament Fighters during Obscura. Be sure to grab our game code giveaways, then stick with us for another round of Random Select. Who could David be this time?
