Sup Holmes?: Punch some butts with Skullgirls's Mike Z


2:20 PM on 04.22.2012



[Destructoid's Director of Communications Hamza Aziz asked Jonathan Holmes to make a show called 'Sup, Holmes?' so that Destructoid could later sell a t-shirt that says 'Sup, Holmes?' on it. This is that show. Download the audio-only podcast version, subscribe to the podcast feed and find more episodes here.]

The idea of punching a guy in the butt has always made me smile. Why not kick them in the balls instead? To make the effort to get down there and punch that butt would be such a weird decision, especially in a high stakes battle of life and death. 

In Skullgirls, punching people in the butt makes a little more sense, because there are no balls in the game to speak of (yet). All of the currently selectable characters in this 2D fighting game for PSN/XBLA are women. Though the "all girl" fighter has been done before, I don't think it's ever been done with this much imagination. Detachable heads, hats made out of muscular man-arms, and prehensile, cannibalistic hair styles are just a few of the things that separate these ladies from the pack.

We'll be talking about all that and more on this week's Sup, Holmes? with the game's lead designer Mike Z.

There are Hawaiian Shirts in Sunset Overdrive!

As we recently learned, Sunset Overdrive lets players protect their genitals with the head of a green kangaroo, which is a very silly idea. But is that silly enough, in this post-Saints Row world? The answer is "who cares?" because there are also Hawaiian Shirts and Hawaiian Shirts are my jam.more

The best stuff on Destructoid this week [7/26]

Let's get away for the weekend, just you and me. I know this little place on the coast. Nice restaurant, view of the water from the cliff side. We could probably sleep in the car in the parking lot and hang out on the beach a...more
