Good episode? Give it some love!
Fighting games have come a long way from throwing down a quarter to call next on the overly crowded Street Fighter II cabinet at the local pizza restaurant. Fortunately for us, the accessibility of fighting games are as close as going to your local arcade, video game shop, or the comfort of your own home.

either being on the sidelines watching or actually taking place between an intense and riveting face-off between a game of street fighter, tekken or king of fighters, fighting games are one of gaming’s most celebrated and passionate genres.

So this stage of the Retro VGM revival hour we again return to test our reflexes and skills against the most decorated of opponents in this episode Dedicated to some amazing Fighting game music tracks.
