Sometimes you just can’t help but take a look at something you missed on purpose. Like here, where I wouldn’t normally look at arcade only releases. But it’s Spider-Man and someone asked about it and who am I to let the fans down?

Listen in as The Well Red Mage from Mage Cast joins the show to take a look at the Spider-Man arcade game that so many of us missed growing up. Which sucks because we could have had some more 4 player action going.

Learn such things as:

  • What does Namor have to do with any of this?
  • Did this game even stand a chance with what else was coming out around the same time?
  • Why haven’t we seen a home console port of this one yet?
  • And so much more!

You can find Red on Twitter @theWellRedMage, Twitch @thewellredmage, his website The Pixels (which includes his podcast Mage Cast), and he’s helping out as the Director of Content for NES Pro Magazine.
