Welcome to another edition of The Weekly Links, your weekly source for the best '80s content on the web! It's been a crazy week with all the confederate flag news regarding the Dukes of Hazzard and remake announcements that never seem to quit. One headline that made me rejoice was that Channing Tatum thinks the all-male Ghostbusters sequel is all but dead. Praise be to Slimer that we won't get remake overload with one of my favorite franchises. Let's see what the girls have to offer first and let's go from there.
Here are few headlines from RD80s this week in case you haven't been around:
I also wrote up a story for UnderScoopFire! about 5 More ‘80s Properties that Would Be Perfect for Modern Video Games. Building off recent announcements of He-Man, G.I. Joe, and G1 Transformers being featured in new video games, I managed to uncover a few more that would fit well as sequels to popular modern games. Angry Birds Silverhawks and Rock Band Jem to name a few.
Coming up next week on RD80s will be a comic book review of Knight Rider #1 from Lion Forge. My pal Wyatt and I will both be giving our thoughts and might even record a podcast!
Not too many videos to choose from this week. Street Fighter has never been in my video game wheelhouse but I'm sure many of you will appreciate this breakdown by PBS...
