[Mash Tactics airs Monday through Friday at 4p.m. Pacific on Dtoid.TV. Watch Rick 'King Foom' Olson play a variety of games, each day with its own theme. With a heavy focus on community and viewer interaction, you can be as much a part of the show as anything else.]
Another day, another theme, and an explanation of what it's all about. Each Thursday, join us on Mash Tactics as we take a trip to the past, and play some of the games of yesteryear. The good, the bad, the ugly, it doesn't matter, if the game is somewhat old school, chances are you'll eventually see it here. While the term retro can mean different things to different people, I'll be sticking to anything from the original PlayStation and earlier. That's old enough for me.
Speaking of the original PlayStation, tonight I'll be playing one of my favorites to come out for the console, Wild 9. Back in the day, there was nothing quite like hopping into the shoes of Wex Major, and whipping my enemies into various death traps. I honestly couldn't be more excited to play this game again for the first time in over fifteen years, and to share it with people who may have missed out on this quirky and original action platformer.
