Taking inspiration from ARMS, the Switch version of Spartan Fist sets itself apart by allowing you to control the game's combat using the Joy-Con's motion controls. Sadly though, it doesn't quite feel as responsive as we'd like, and you'll often find yourself flailing your hands around in a wild attempt to gain the upper hand. We found that the standard controls work much better, with the left fist mapped to ZL and the right to ZR.
The arenas are mapped out in a very similar way to games like The Binding of Isaac and Enter the Gungeon in that you'll have a couple of different paths to take once you clear the area of its enemies, eventually making your way to the boss. In between the arenas, the game will dish out randomly-generated perks, which might be an entirely different fist with special attributes or a power-up that you can dunk your current fists into, endowing them with elemental energy. Unlike other titles, however, the power-ups in Spartan Fist simply don't feel unique enough to warrant their inclusion, and each playthrough of the game just feels like the exact same experience as the last one.
The first-generation Thunderbird was a two-seat car with a V8 engine, a suspension that was designed for comfort instead of handling, and also available in either convertible (folding soft-top) or roadster (removable hardtop) body styles. The Thunderbird was able to reach a top speed of 200 km/h (124 mph), which similar to many European Grand tourers of the era. The Thunderbird's sporty luxury format with more features, proved vastly more popular with American car buyers than the spartan Corvette sports car by selling 16,155 units in 1955, compared with 674 Corvettes, 809 Chrysler 300D, and 2,200 Studebaker Speedsters. This market signal set the stage for further development.
The Mooer 006 US Classic Deluxe part of Mooer's Micro Preamp line, fist sized nuggets you can drop on your pedalboard to get the beloved tone classic and unique boutique amp models. Each micro amp pedal includes two channels (clean and drive) just like a real amp, volume, gain, low, mid, high EQ controls, and even speaker simulator on/off all at the price less than a standard pedal.
There are twenty points of articulation in this mode. This includes five in each arm (I'm counting the ability of the fist to swing in) and four in each leg. All the joints on my copy of this figure are nice and tight. In addition to the 5mm ports in his fists, he has two on the sides of his arms and two on the sides of the knee area. He also has two on the heel pieces under his feet and one on his back. This allows a lot of possibilities when attaching accessories to Huffer and "powering" him up. I am very happy that this play pattern started three plus years ago continues to the current line of figures but I am kind of sad that there are no attachment points for Blast Effects to make it look like Huffer is being hit with firepower.
With the shield attached, Huffer has five 5mm ports to attach accessories. Without it he gains one more in the back. This same port can be used to attach the trailer from Earthrise (or Kingdom) Leader Class Optimus Prime. This is meant to call back to the scene in the G1 episode "Heavy Metal War" where Huffer helps an injured Optimus Prime take on the burden of carrying the trailer. I love this extra touch as it really adds to the G1 feel of this figure. Technically you could also use his robot fists since they show here so get creative!
The grand unveiling of the Epiphone line took place at the NAMM trade show in July 1958 with the electric Emperor as the flagship model. The show itself would generate orders of 226 guitars and 63 amps, a modest return. Over the next few years, Epiphone would sell 3,798 instruments in 1961 and by 1965 account for 20% of the total instruments shipped out of Kalamazoo. Even more impressive was the prestige of the guitars themselves. In the early 1960s, the Epiphone Emperor cost significantly more than the top-of-the-range Gibson Byrdland, while 1963's deluxe flat top Excellente, was $100 more than the J-200, and made of rarer tone woods.
Video: Using the power of maths and science, Vsauce determined that an average-sized fist performing a Rising Dragon Fist would apply enough force to decapitate a normal human being. Then they built a dummy to test their work. 2b1af7f3a8
