What sport couldn’t be improved by a Spinning Pile Driver? Or maybe just a handful of Dragon Punches? Baseball would certainly be more interesting. This week on the podcast we listen to music from our favorite fighting games! We cover everything from 2D to 3D, from the 90s all the way to today’s baddest-brawlers. As a special treat, Rob gets extra nerdy about hip-hop samples! There’s a fair amount of rapping in this episode, and this time not from Pernell! Enjoy the show!
