Batman is one of the most well know superheroes around despite the fact that he’s not really a superhero when you break the term down. Don’t care, still love him. And that little used fact in games where he’s a pretty good detective.
Good thing we have Matt and Thad from Making Nerds Cringe here to help unravel the mystery of Batman Vengeance. Listen in as we take a look at this Batman the Animated Series (?) inspired game and all the fun that goes with it.
We’re never going to get away from Batman are we? Oh well, at least Chaos in Gotham is based on everyone’s favorite Batman animated series. And Batman might possibly have one of the best rogue galleries in comics so you’ve got to think something could be pulled off here.
Good thing we’ve got Erin from Girls Talk Comics to come help us look into the situation. So suit up, because this is a fun one.
This Episode is brought to you in part by Alex Schumacher, SLG Publishing, and Mr. Butterchips.
Alright, so we’ve looked at a lot of Batman. Like a lot. So let’s take a look at future Batman. Except not Bruce because it’s the future and Bruce is old and tired, you know, all the other things that old people are.
Listen in as Dan and Jake McMahon from DC Supersons come on the show to talk about Batman Beyond, the future of super heroing, and fuzzy good boys.
You knew this day was coming. Eventually we had to get to Superman 64. Flying around through rings, horrible time limits, battling Lex Luthor in an arena of his making. What can we say about this game that hasn’t already been said?Listen in as Kyle Federline and Karrington Martin give it a shot as we look at this N64 classic. I promise, we actually have good things to say about it.
Superman can’t really be stopped by normal bad guys, we’ve established that. But what happens when Lex Luthor decides to really go after him? Oh, we’ve done that too? Ummmm, so what happens this time? It’s comics after all, so we know he isn’t really going anywhere.
Listen in as Dan McMahon from DC Supersons comes on the show to take a look at a Gameboy exclusive title based on the 1990s animated series. Yeah, that’s what we’re going with for this one. It says so on the box so it must be true
Batman and Robin is the last of the 1990s Batman movies, and maybe for good reason. The movie was not all too well received. It didn’t really fit the tone of the preview two 90s Batman movies. And yet it still had a game come out for it. A year after the movie, but it still happened.Listen in as Chris and guest Billy from CommanderCast admit that this is their favorite of the 90s Batman movies and take a look at the tie in game that came with it.
Batman the Animated Series is apparently a huge part of a ton of childhoods. Except mine, because I somehow kept missing it. But from giving characters much better back stories to creating a few characters that we couldn’t imagine not having today to just being objectively awesome, it’s an important part of today’s Batman culture.So of course it had a game to go with it. You know, besides the Gameboy title that it actually shared a name with the series. Listen in as Chris Sims from War Rocket Ajax, The ISB, and writer of some Marvel things comes to talk about a wonderful pair of Batman games, and a few others that exist.
The Justice League has some of the most iconic characters that comics have ever known. But what happens when you take a super hero super group and branch off from that?
Paul Combs stops by the show to take a look at the offshoot of the offshoot of a team up. Yeah, that’s nowhere near the most convoluted part.
In the 1990s Batman was everything. A comic movie franchise, cartoons, you name it. And then things started to fall off the rails. Tim Burton gets pushed out the door and we get this. But will the game be worth it despite the movie? Or will we get yet another example of a weak game that exists only because of a movie tie in?
Listen as Alex Whiteley from Thors-Kin joins the show to talk Batman Forever.
So we’ve seen Superman games before, and we know how I feel about them. But maybe, just maybe, we’ve found one that actually does Superman justice.
Listen in as Michael Bailey from The Fortress of Baileytude Podcast Network (including From Crisis to Crisis) joins the show to talk Death and Return of Superman.
Batman returns with this game based on the 1992 movie Batman Returns. There’s wacky origins, crazy life restoring animals, and we haven’t even started talking about Batman himself yet.
Listen in as Roger Reichardt from Gamerheads comes to take a look at this game based on the final Tim Burton Batman movie.
Batman and The Joker, it’s an iconic pairing that will never go away. At least not for long. Listen in as Steven and Chris from Is This Adulting? come to talk about Batman, Robin, and the fact that this game just doesn’t really make much sense at all.
Superman Returns (see what I did there) with a game that exists and has a Superman sprite that looks like Superman and, ummmm, I don’t know I’m really stretching here because this game isn’t very good. Listen as Chris is joined by Karrington Martin of the RealDudes Podcast as they break down another Superman game that still can’t quite get the hero right.
Swamp Thing never gets a fair shake at fame. From a lousy cartoon to an LJN game, it seems that only die hard comic fans really know how cool he can be. Listen as Chris and Tyler Kirby from Better Than Static take a look at this misunderstood and underappreciated force of nature.
Batman: The Animated Series is easily seen as one of the best versions of Batman on the screen. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a game came out for it. Listen in as Karrington from The Real Dudes Podcast joins in on discussing yet another Gameboy game.
Did you see that streak going by? That was probably Chris and Tyler Kirby from Better than Static going on about the newest episode of Play Comics. These two crazy kids looked at some Flash comic history then the Gameboy game that was at least artistically inspired by the 90s Flash TV show.
