Aside from Street Fighter II and Mortal Kombat, I was almost completely ignorant of the fighting game scene during the 90s. Then again, I guarantee a lot of folks were in the same boat as me. That’s why a game such as WeaponLord is such a revelation to me.
In the latest episode of Fighterpedia, Woolie and Matt share a fighting game that was way ahead of its time: a home console exclusive that featured online play and a host of mechanics and features that wouldn’t become genre standards for years to come. WeaponLord was a trend-setter! Plus, it looked totally badass!
Another eye-opening episode, but I feel the cursing was a little forced this week. Swearing is an art — there’s a flow and rhythm to it. If you think you’re off your game one day, don’t strain yourself.
