Ask any fan of Japanese kaiju (giant monsters/beasts) films who the baddest one of all is, and you’ll still likely get the dreaded answer that has haunted our nuclear dreams: Godzilla!

What do you get when Family Guy and Nintendo conceive a child at Spinal Tap orgy? The Hit Squad! If you are always on Twitter, and you have people in your circles who love the 80s and everything that goes with it – especially 8-bit stuff, then you might have gotten wind of the world’s […]
