Episode 009 – Shaq Fu (1994)

This week in Your Parents Basement, we study Shaqido. It’s a deadly and ancient martial art, dating all the way back to the 1990s. The history of this dangerous form of fighting in explained in 1994’s Shaq Fu, which was a real thing that happened, along with Shaquille O’Neal’s rapping career and him playing a god damn genie.

SHOW NOTES

– For information on the Shaq Fu sequel, check out the website on it. Like we get into on the podcast though, there isn’t an announced release date, and it’s now been more than a year since the project was initially announced.

– The Shaq Fu Liberation Army seems to be mostly dormant now. But if you’re interested, check it out here. (Note: Sound.)

– Want to play Shaq Fu? It’s not especially tough, if you still have your old systems. Copies of the game range from $3 to $8 for cart only. Even if you want the box and manual included, the price ranges from $8 to $20, depending on condition. As we say on the show, the Genesis version is surprisingly superior to SNES, thanks to more character and smoother (relatively speaking) animation.

(In case that FB page changes: As of May 2017, there isn’t an official release, for a game that was originally supposed to come out sometime in 2015.) We first mentioned the sequel during our show on Shaq Fu, which amazingly was our ninth episode ever back in June 2015. […]
