Polykill Ep 54: The Golden Age of Beat'em Ups

The 54th episode of the show is here! Some sizable movements in the backlog are announced, including some hardware! The discussion turns back the clock to the 80's and 90's when brawlers and beat'em ups were all the (Streets of) rage.

Went in the backlog a bit, and glad I listened to this episode. Love the beat-em up genre, so good. Hearing Jake and Trav, (most Trav) talk about so many favorites made me go back and play through a ton of them again. Surprisng to hear neither one played alot of the Streets Of Rage game tho.
This Iron Man fan recommends Cap and the Avengers on SNES.. (Or MAME if youre into that)
Awesome show as always guys!
