Here’s our first Agoners podcast. I hope you enjoy it! 🙂
This episode focuses on a subject dear to our hearts – fighting games, and our thoughts on some current fighting games, and about the latest news on new fighting games that are currently being developed.
We also give an intro to Agoners and talk a bit about ourselves… and of course the big attraction – our excellent voices 😉
And special huge thanks to the new Official Agoners iTunes Partner Dan “ineedleladybra” for helping us get up an iTunes version (as I refuse to install that horrible bit of software on anything I own!):
The music used in the cast is by a very talented friend of ours, Zak Rahman, you can listen to the full version of the track we use “Night of Something” or check out some of his other tracks at his Soundcloud page.
Here’s the links related to the discussions we have:
Our “About” page which describes more about the name “Agoners” and how this site came about.

The first part of Agoner’s Street Fighter 4 article series (from vanilla SF4) about the execution requirements of SF4. Click from it for part 2 and onwards if you want to read in depth about the things I wasn’t so keen on about SF4.
An article from a year ago about SF5 and Capcom’s thoughts on possible new ways to monetise it.
A SRK post about possibly finding a “crouch tech” in SF5.
Sirlin’s existing online turn-based games we mention – Yomi, Puzzle Strike, and Flash Duel, are playable online at: www.fantasystrike.com which we highly recommend, and there is also an excellent Steam release of Yomi which you can check out here, and it’s also available on iOS.
Please leave us a comment to let us know what you thought about us talking about gaming in this different format, cheers!
