Yie-Ark-Kung-Fu

With Matty and Al out of the country, it falls to me to do the Thursday ION! And I am ready! No, that’s a lie. Somehow I’ve already set half the links on fire and the other half are busy taking turns with a loaded revolver. Man, Clarkson was right…

For Throwback Thursday, I thought I’d revisit one of my all time favourites: Yie Ar Kung Fu. Pretty much one of the earliest fighting games ever made, the premise was simple: Kick some ass.

To do so, you’d need to rely on ultra Kung-Fu moves such as punching really hard, kicking even harder and jumping around the screen like a flea on steroids. And hot damn, the game was some great fun.

Thanks of course, to a rogues gallery who you had to clobber along the way, like Iron Chain dude and that bugger who kept spitting fireballs at you while dancing a fandango around the screen.

The best thing about Yie Ar Kung Fu though? That foot-tapping good soundtrack. Here’s an online link to experience some joy with.

In Other News: Six minutes of a game that nobody really cares about, Capcom has a date with legacy, holy crap remember The Crew and it’s time for games to get darker.

Here’s the news that we didn’t post today, because I was too busy blaming Obama for something.

    Wow didn’t even know it was 4PM already

    Been battling this whole day with new HDD juggling files between drives

    And somehow I ended up like 8.1?

    On a side note the sites acting a bit sluggish?

      Got the same sluggishness. Must be channelling Darryn’s sex drive.

        Dude. I had a 3.5 hour trip home because of shit with trucks on the N3 last night. At that same Van Buuren offramp. I cannot see myself repeating that. I’d rather take a bath in second hand KFC cooking oil.
