SHOW NOTES

– According to Price Charting, most of the Road Rash games are affordable, at $7.50 to $25 depending on the platform. As usual, the Sega CD version is rare and costs $70.

– There is a surprising amount of Shaq Fu talk in this episode, because that game still hasn’t come out. (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.

– We mention the Road Rash spiritual successor, Road Redemption, a tiny bit on the show. While it has also had issues getting released – it is still in pre-release on Steam – at least it is getting very positive reviews.
