This second episode of the Video Wizards Podcast is huge! We’re traveling back to March 1991 and look at how Street Fighter II: The World Warrior changed the (arcade) gaming landscape… and we get to reminisce about colourful cartoony games like The Simpsons, Caveman Ninja and Bells & Whistles a.k.a. Detana!! TwinBee.
We also marvel at Jeff Speakman’s Kenpo skills and his laissez-faire approach to deadly combat, avoid the Ninja Turtles populated dance floor at a Vanilla Ice show and brace ourselves for the Grunge quake. And will Michiel break his impressive streak of giving the exact wrong answer during any given 50/50 toss up quiz situation?
