Salty Friendship returns this evening with another healthy serving of superhero throwdowns! Even though we’re just about to get started with episode 13 of Salty Friendship, my good nemesis NINJASF0RHIRE and I both would be quick to point out that this salty friendship actually started more than a decade ago.
Our salt throwing all began at a time when arcade machines were on their last legs in the wake of more superior console hardware. The PS2 had eaten up the competition, destroying SEGA’s last chance at returning to its heyday with the unappreciated (and still amazing) Dreamcast. The first Xbox and Nintendo’s Gamecube would soon release and arcades would essentially go away.
Lucky for us a small hole-in-the-wall arcade at our college’s student union had a few games. Most importantly it had Marvel vs Capcom 2, the most exciting crossover ever made up to that point. East vs West, Wolverine vs Ryu, what wasn’t to like?
Salty Friendship carried on over to the Capcom vs SNK series, Street Fighter III, and finally with Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance (the first Mortal Kombat not released in arcades). Today it’s alive and well with titles like Injustice: Gods Among Us, and of course the most recent Mortal Kombat X. So thanks for joining us on our weekly show where we can continue to decimate each other in button mashing battles featuring our favorite characters from comic books and video games, and provide some rather salty entertainment in the process. Join us every Monday evening at 9:30PM Pacific Time on my twitch channel. Stay salty my friends.
