Retro Flashback: The Combatribes (Arcade)

66 views 1 month ago
In this episode of Retro Flashback, I take a look at the arcade edition of The Combatribes. This is another Technos Japan brawler that on its face isn't really that great but also has some fairly bold design ideas that challenge a lot the core concepts common in arcade games. Watch and see what made this different!

Programming Note: Forgive the wee bit of echo that's in this video. I just got a shiny new microphone and I'm still figuring out the best setup for it.

The Super Nintendo version of The Combatribes can be purchased digitally on the Wii Virtual Console which can be accessed from the Wii Shop Channel.

Retro Flashback Play

This show is dedicated to showcasing retro video games from all different systems, eras and levels of quality to players both old and new. It involves me playing different retro games, talking about their design, what makes them good (or bad) as well as some of their history and that of the developers and what relevance to modern games they may have. Occasionally, I will also cover modern remakes of older retro titles or modern games with retro inspired design in episodes called Retro Flashforward. Whether you're already into retro games or just want to see some of the history of video games, there's something for everyone!

All Together Now (No More Room In Hell) Play

All Together Now is a show I do with a group of friends in which we co-op Let's Play various games, both good and bad, and provide our unique brand of snarky commentary along the way. We play all kinds of different games in different genres with different numbers of players so there's plenty of variety for everyone. Each title will have its own playlist and there may be multiple series running at the same time.

This playlist is devoted to our group play of free Source mod No More Room In Hell, a super hardcore zombie survival game. It's pretty janky, outright broken in spots and we think it hates its player base but it was also made with heart and has some brilliant ideas underneath it's kind of scuzzy surface. You can feel both the love and hate (and sometimes both at once) in our banter.
