  2. TEOL says:

    I can see that Bedroom to Billions theme being in a new Road Rash game as the Palm Desert music. lol.

  3. TEOL says:

    I’d say that none of those beat em ups count as a platformer isn’t a Beat Em Up and a Fighter is not a Beat Em Up the definition of Beat Em Up is fighting a load of punks on multiple screens not 1 on 1 which is a Fighter or Platforming which is called a Hack and Slash.

    That show was epic guys enjoyed it a lot although it was hard finding time for such an epic lengh.

    • TEOL says:

      Well not that hard because I’m home fo rmost of thetime currently but hard in the way of not switching to another thing whilst listening prolonging the lengh more. lol.
