Fighting game rosters are always fascinating to me. For an industry where fans are always demanding “new, new, new,” it’s the one genre where old is good. Old characters, old stages, people just want to see everything they’re already familiar with plus a couple of new additions to separate the new entry from the old one.
Not every character can be in every entry, and as we’ve seen in the past with multiple fighting games, those missing favorites can cause an uproar amongst the fanbase. And with social media, that uproar is louder and more annoying than ever. But I get it. Milenna is a great kharacter with a great backstory and mouth so big it makes Steven Tyler’s lips look like Betty Boop’s.
That’s just one of the topics on this episode of Podtoid. CJ, Dan, Charlotte, and Chris come together to talk John Rambo, FIFA 21, Watch Dogs 2, the Monster Hunter movie, Resident Evil reboot, beaches full of drugs, and home baking. All that, plus Michelle Rodriguez’s pleather pants, on Podtoid Episode 462.
