Neo Geo 1990 – Episode 087

It’s 1990 – the year of the Berlin Wall coming down, the Hubble Space Telescope going up, and Wilson Phillips asking us to hold on for one more day. In this episode we’ll fill the Podouken 4 Slot Neo Geo with Ninja Combat, Cyber-Lip, The Super Spy, and Blue’s Journey.

Does this episode have our worst bit ever? Why is Debra a fat man holding an ax? How are we disappointing the futurists from the 90s? Did SNK make a game about the worst spy ever?

We also answer some listener questions (posted on the Podouken Discord) like if we’ve ever encountered haunted games, how we tune game difficulty in the arcade, what games we hate but keep around because the public loves them, and our choices for holy grail games.
