Abrupt heel-turns are always fun, especially in fighting games where a goody-two-shoes hero gives in to the Dark Power within and becomes a corrupted, evil version of themselves (usually with cooler moves). This week, we welcome Anthony Abatte to help us take a look at five fallen heroes of fighting games, after which we’ll talk about Little Nightmares 2, casting HBO’s The Last of Us, listen to some reconstructed Mario tunes, and hear about your parents’ attitudes toward your gaming.
Question of the Week: If you could create an evil version of any videogame character, who would it be and why?
