Bloody! Fighterpedia chronicles the history of fatalities


7:00 PM on 01.09.2012



Alright, no more beating around the bush -- Fighterpedia is incredible. The show is able to present some seriously fascinating fighting game trivia while keeping the overall energy and enthusiasm constant throughout. I'm lovin' it! Good job, Woolie and Matt!

In this latest episode, the duo charts the rise of the videogame fatality and notes the games that shamelessly cribbed from Mortal Kombat. My favorite part comes around the five-minute mark when they start listing off all the other fifth-rung, hyperviolent copycats, like Weapon Lord and Pray for Death. Did you know that one of Naughty Dog's earliest titles was a bloody fighter called Way of the Warrior, or that another game called Shadow: War of Succession was developed by a company co-founded by Robert De Niro? Like I said, fascinating stuff!

Reminder: Lightsaber crossguards were in No More Heroes first

[Update: You guys in the comments are fast! Thanks for the education on the Star Wars Expanded Universe and its long history of lightsaber crossguards. I wonder if that's where Suda got the idea from? I'll ask him next time I...more
