Electronic Wireless Show Podcast Episode 172: Best Finishers in Special Games
This week, the Electronic Wireless Show podcast focuses on our favorite knockouts. That doesn’t just mean the fighting game stuff, although they obviously do a good job. As you can imagine, Nate makes the case for RTS games with what he and his friends call “the GG push.” Plus, we’ve got a great Mortal Kombat-themed Cavern Of Lies this week, courtesy of Matthew.
Plenty of time is spent on some excellent digressions this week, including James McAvoy as the rampaging dinosaur from Jurassic Park (a situation that I think would have enhanced his weird improv flick My Son). Besides, could Matthew save the world if he grew up to six times the size of the earth and cut off a slice of his butt like a big steak, to feed us all? Will someone make a game like Deep Rock Galactic, but to extract celestial meat from Matthew? A whimsical episode this week indeed.
Nate and the boys fear GG’s push in Age Of Empires.
Many thanks to the ridiculous ultra-violence of Mortal Kombat and the extreme super-moves of the heroes of the Injustice series.
Matthew really likes the bike and pepper mill finishers available in Yakuza.
The kills available in Hitman 3 are, in many ways, knockouts (even when you’re miles away when they happen!
Recommendations this week are Athony Horowitz’s bizarre meta-detective book The Word Is Murder, an avenue for free book copies in the form of NetGalley, and High Spec’s branded rotary power tool and table saw compact 2 in 1 Dremel MS20.
