The Samurai Gunn episode is the kind of Friday Night Fisticuffs I like to watch! They made a comment about how the commentary stops when they get into games like this, but the intense action and the fact that they get really into the game is what I love to watch!
During high school, and a good portion of college, I used to go over to a friends every Friday and do this exact thing, with stuff like Mario kart, smash and soul caliber. Seeing them play the games like this during FNF really reminds me of that time, and even though I'm not playing the game I get really invested in their matches like when I would watch my friends play.
I like these ones much better then when they just pick a fighting game to just show it off. Though that may be just me. I have no idea how popular the competitive FNF are compared to the showcase FNF.
This might come off kinda shallow, but i meant mostly as a trans person in the videogame industry. For a group of guys who tend to try and keep a poles length from that kind of controversy/politics, kind of surprised they would invite her onto the podcast. Im glad but surprised.
