Episode 30: Darius

Journey with AFPH into the world of Taito’s Darius where we battle the onslaught of space fish in one of the best horizontal shooter series of all time.

Bonus Episode: Sega-Nights

On this extra special bonus edition of the AFPH, we lightly dabble in self-induced public shaming in an attempt to pull back the curtain a bit.  Special appearance enthusiast Thor Becker joins once again as we discuss how we spent our Friday nights in high school establishing the “Sega-Nights” (not to be confused with Sega’s Nights).

Episode 28: Weaponlord

FINALLY! It’s long overdue for AFPH to speak the virtues of a forgotten but excellent fighting game that stayed in the 16 Bit era: Namco’s Weaponlord.  This super hardcore and mechanically advanced fighting game would (maybe? possibly?) influence Soul Calibur.  Have a listen and then play this awesome game, or the Demonlord will be super pissed.

Episode 27: Data East

On this edition of AFPH, we scratch the surface of one of the most prolific ‘single-and-double-A’ developers and publishers in Data East.  For an added bonus, we were joined midway through recording by returning guest, surprise appearance maker, and all around Bad Dude, Thor Becker. We go on and off the rails. It’s a fun one!

Episode 26: Doing Math With Atari Jaguar

Today on AFPH; Predatory cats, so many buttons, and some number fudging that gets us to 64-bits.  The Atari Jaguar was the last home console made by the former video game juggernaut and against all convention, it still has a loyal fanbase.  And Ray gets to (justifiably) mock Brian for being among that fanbase!

Episode 25 Mortal Kombat with Daniel Pesina

Today on AFPH, we have a spirited chat about the Mortal Kombat arcade games.  Then for a very special treat, we are joined by Daniel Pesina.  Mr. Pesina was the martial arts actor who played Johnny Cage, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and more in the games and has a lot to say about the making of and lasting impact of MOOOOORTAL KOOOOOMBAT!!!!
