  1. Shaq Fu 2 Could Be a Thing!

    Some of you may remember, others may not, but back in 1994 Shaq Fu was released for the Sega Genesis and Super Nintendo.

At the end of the episode I felt so invested in these characters, even more than I was with Lee and Clementine. It was a bitter sweet though, I wanted to pull my hair...
