Did you know that if developer Capcom's Street Fighter series of fighting games were a person, it could legally rent a car now? That frightens us, actually -- we've seen what they do to cars in those bonus levels.

To celebrate the Silver Anniversary, Capcom released a massive, fun-filled collector's editionArea 5 produced the feature-length documentary included in that set, and this episode, we sit down with three of the guys who made the retrospective. The video-production house's Cesar Quintero, Ryan O'Donnell, and  Jason Bertrand join GamesBeat editor-in-chief Dan "Shoe" Hsu to try to fit a quarter-century of Hadoukens into an hour. They almost make it.

This episode's topics:

  • Japanese vs. U.S. arcade culture
  • Area 5's favorite interviews from its Street Fighter documentary
  • Interesting stories that didn't quite make it into Area 5's movie

It's only the third episode, but we're already showing our age in this installment of the Bring Your Own Topic podcast. This time around, we have Wired.com's Chris Kohler, Gaijin Games (Bit.Trip series) co-founder Alex Neuse, and Kabam's (Kingdoms of Camelot) Andy Alamano. The three of them join GamesBeat editor-in-chief Dan "Shoe" Hsu to go back in time 30 years to when music looped and pixels were all the rage.

This episode's topics:

  • 8-bit games that were truly scary
  • The rise and fall of "stage music"
  • Playing Nintendo Entertainment System games that didn't make it to the U.S.
