Another wrestling game? Damned right it's another wrestling game. I love wrestling almost as much as I love video games. And for my money, Tecmo World Wrestling is as good as it gets before the Nintendo 64.
It isn't perfect. No big name wrestlers, no tag team matches or variants at all. But damned if this game isn't just straight up fun. Plus the commentary is better than most CURRENT wrestling games!
My friend and returning guest Brad agrees with me. We had a hell of a time talking Tecmo World Wrestling, and if we don't convince you this game is worth your time by the end of the podcast, I don't know what it'll take. This shit is still real to us, dammit!
And before Brad and I talk about headlocks and bodyslams, it's the fabled 'Remember The Game?' intro! We chat about some new stuff I'm rolling out for the podcast, we talk about the Among Us phenomenon, whether or not esports will catch on in North America, and more!
Qe also have another fantastic edition of 'Play One, Remake One, Erase One'. This week it's the weird mutant animal edition, starring Ninja Turtles, toads that battle and a fox that flies a spaceship.
If you want to skip to something specific, here's where to go:
0:00 - 8:32 Initial self-indulgent rambling
8:33 - 18:53 'Blowing In The Cartridge' (Listener comments & questions, and Letter Time!)
18:54 - 28:18 'Play One. Remake One. Erase One.' - TMNT, Battletoads, and Star Fox.
28:19 - 29:39 What have I been playing?
29:40 - 30:50 Listener's Tecmo World Wrestling Memories
30:51+ Tecmo World Wrestling Talk!
Enjoy the podcast!
