We uncover the version of Golden Axe where characters just had pom-poms and no clothes just for your pleasure. We also research the truth behind the name Turtle Village on stage 1 and why the equals sign (=) was used between the main characters names like Death=Adder.

We chat about our arcade memories of hanging around the game wishing we had the money to play it and also past experiences of owning 8 and 16 bit versions.

We decide which version is the Golden Turd and should have been chopped into pieces with a razer sharp Katana or possibly be returned with a receipt to the shop.
