It’s the 31st of October, which means the Southeast Asian nightlife & social scene will be Halloween-themed. Cosplays, traditional Universal Monster getups, pop culture icon outfits, skin-revealing ensembles: no outfit type is spared.
To catch a predator, and play some games. We’re back after a well-deserved break and jump right back with “Marvel’s Spider-Man” and “Shadow of The Tomb Raider”. And in our main segment, we discuss a little-known film called “The Predator”. It’s high-flying action and adventure right here on the Last King.

While the X and Zero games superceded and improved upon the weapon-stealing formula, you can’t forget your 8-bit roots.
But which Mega Man game is the best? Which Blue Bomber battle royale is the one with the best stage ideas? The best weapons catalogue? The best aesthetics?
