  • I would love to see you do a show about EVO or get some fighting game champions to do your podcast. Not everything is about Gears of war and rpg’s. Plus fighting games is all i actually play anymore… Storylines in video games are over rated. If i wanted story, id watch the movie.

  • Considering that its a video game show, why the hell would they only play fighting games. It’s fine that you only like those games but we all want to see other stuff.

  • Great work guys. I love that your into fighting games like Street Fighter X Tekken and the Soul Blade/Calibur series. May I suggest investing in Fightsticks. I think it would raise your appreciation for the genre and prevent the dreaded thumb blisters.

  • Hey, this was rad!

    It’s a new show and stuff so I’m hesitant to ask what are all the things you guys will be doing…

    So honestly, I’m just stoked to keep watching and see for myself! :]

    P.S. More tournaments at Meltdown? Like for say…. Skullgirls? Haha :]

  • I thought it was a fun first episode.

    I have to say that the nerd voice in me (which eventually escaped my physical mouth) was screaming out in fury at Kumail for losing, considering that:

    a) Steve pointed out that he doesn’t really play fighting games

    b) Kumail expressing in the podcasts of him growing up with the Street Fighter games, along with other fighting games, yet still ending up losing to what clearly looks like a gratuitous case of button mashing…

    Otherwise the riffing was a lot of fun.

    I also should add that it only occurred to me while watching the opening montage (which is now a standard to have that sort of mash-up in most Japanese fighting games) how niche both the SF and Tekken universes have become since only characters from the pre-2000 games in both could be remembered.

    Also Marshall Law in that game… some of his moves looked like they were taken from ‘Fei Long’ out of Super SF (though both characters were clearly meant to be a Bruce Lee model).

    Okay, enough nerding from me. Keep up the great work guys!
