Arguable the best 2D Arcade Platform, AFPH jumps into the storied history of Capcom’s CPS System.
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!
What happens when one of the best fighter franchises in gaming history is capitalized beyond it’s original intent? Turns out that means puzzle games and mediocre 3D fighters (Brian’s edit: “Fuck you, they’re good!”)…go figure.
In a special “field” episode of AutoFire Power Hour, Brian tracks down special guest Thor Becker, in an undisclosed location, to discuss the Clock Tower Series.
