Text us and say hello!

In episode 12 of "Backwards Compatible: A Generation 'S' Podcast," Lou and I step into the ring with one of the NES classics, "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!" and its 1990 re-release featuring Mr. Dream. As one of my all-time favorite games, you may notice that I'm a LITTLE overzealous and excited this time around, and our discussion kinda pivots to in-depth strategies for tackling some of the game’s most notorious opponents, sharing tips and tactics that have helped us dodge, weave, and uppercut our way to victory over the years.

We also reminisce about our earliest memories of playing "Punch-Out!!" back in the early '90s, reliving the thrill of climbing the ranks in the boxing world of the game. This week's 'Scratch the Itch' segment features "Thunder Ray," a modern game that revitalizes the classic "Punch-Out!!" gameplay with a fresh twist, perfect for fans looking to recapture that same boxing challenge. As always, we wrap up the episode with a nod to the pop culture landscape of October 1987, the era when players first faced off against Mike Tyson in the virtual ring, setting the stage for the enduring legacy of this knockout classic. Join Lou and me as we celebrate the game that has been a contender in the hearts of gamers for decades.
