It’s a long time coming, but Ed has finally gotten around to punching out one of his favorite genres: Beat ’em ups. Fighting game fanatic and cohost of the Heroes 3 Podcast, Carlos, is the perfect man for the job – Together this tag-team of ruffians skulk down alleys infested with gutter punks, xenomorphs, wind-up toys, and… bears? It’s a wild ride filled with Asian action film trivia, terrific music, and some games you certainly need to check out!
You can find Carlos on the Asian action cinema-focused Heroes Three Podcast, right here: http://heroes3podcast.blogspot.com/
