YPB: Vidya Game News – November 24, 2016

A short one today, because it’s Thanksgiving, after all!

- The Ringer had a cool retrospective on Tecmo Super Bowl, because it’s the 25-year anniversary for the game. Check out our show on the game here!

- Also on The Ringer, their podcast network now has a vidya game show! It’s called Achievement Oriented, and they had Jennifer Hale on to talk about the vidya game voiceover artist strike.

- From Polygon via Variety, the Mortal Kombat movie reboot might be directed by Simon McQuoid. Read more here.

- Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was released in 1992. It added Tails as a secondary character, as well as the “dash” ability thing when you’re in a ball, which was actually hella helpful.

Video game history information comes from GameFAQs and Moby Games. And as always, if you’d like to support the show, do so via our Amazon link.

  1. That Ringer article is one of the best things I've read all year. I never played a Tecmo Bowl game until about 10 years ago. I'll never forget playing with a friend and the first things he showed me were dropping back for a 100 yard pass and 100 hats field goals being a real thing in the game.

    Since then I picked up Super Bowl on NES and a updated version of it at a convention work 2010 rosters. Awesome stuff and one day I will have to update to a more modern roster. I was checking out ebay prices from links in that article and it seems cheapest they go for its around $50.
