Episode 78: Tag Team Wrestling (NES)

February 2, 2016 @ 7:02 pm

So far my video game flashback episodes have been devoted to games I fondly remember from my childhood. For this episode I take a look at a game that I don't fondly remember: Data East's Tag Team Wrestling for the Nintendo Entertainment System. This is not just one of the worst wrestling games I've played but possible one of the worst games I've ever played period!
