PACHINKO!!! And health clubs….those too.
AFPH covers a mere fraction of the overall mega load of arcade games released on Nintendo’s big gray baby sitter of the 80s.
In this very special edition of Autofire Power Hour (+48 Hours) we tackle the entire history of Nintendo’s Highs & Lows.
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.
Autofire Power Hour is taking it to the X-Treme!!!
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).
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.
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!
