This week on The Short Game, we discuss our first fighting game! Or is this a fighting game? Wait, what is this exactly?

It’s Nidhogg, a game in which two sabre-wielding duelists with infinite respawns face off in a frenetic, bloody tug of war for the right to throw themselves into the gaping maw of the titular Norse snake god Níðhöggr. Chew on that for a minute.

It’s also an incredibly tight and well designed, yet simple and approachable vs. combat game for two players.

We also have a good chat about Game Center CX and Mega Man II, as well as Civilization Revolution 2 for iOS.
