Whilst Victor is arcading in ‘Merica Shaun enlists the help of Paul and Phil from the Maximum Power Up podcast to talk about the famous brawler, Final Fight. We also share our secrets on how we got so ripped (in a little under 20 minutes using this one weird trick) for the show image. *cough* Photoshop *cough*

  1. Listened to the new episode, was great really enjoyed it. i never liked final fight, but the rest of the capcom side scrolling beat’em ups i loved. Favourite being Punisher. I’ll give the Kung fu master ago, and see what i can get. Keep up the good work 😀
