R-Type – Episode 069

In this very nice episode we discuss the classic Irem shooter that became known as the last dedicated Nintendo arcade released in the States all thanks to Kung Fu – the tubular R-Type.

How did a dung beetle become the main inspiration for this STG? Is this the last episode of our Nintendo Life miniseries? Why did Irem design a level specifically to get the player to give up? Is a hotdog a sandwich?

So follow along with ya boyz by smashing that subscribe button and ringing that bell as we talk about childhood memories of Mr. Goodburger, Rob not knowing the difference between Metal Slug and Metal Gear Solid, the best breakfast cereal, Adam getting upset about hitboxes, and discovering the meaning of a Tokyo phone book.
