It all comes back to Spider-Man doesn’t it? The cultural saturation of the character in a lot of English speaking societies. The relatable nature of the character (and to be perfectly honest, most of the Spider people characters). The fact that the first Spider-Man trilogy was the first thing since the 90s Batman movies to really hit such a mainstream audience is no coincidence.

So how do we get a look at what Spider-Man means to people? Oh, I don’t know, maybe get a guest like Keifer from Select and Start to come and give us a look at what both this 2004 game and the movie that it ties in with? Yeah, that seems like a good idea. I should pat myself on the back for doing exactly that.Continue Reading

You’ve got a giant sprawling set of lore with the X-Men. You’ve got a huge villain, in multiple ways, in Apocalypse. You’ve got the last regular episode of Play Comics for a while because I don’t know how to plan things, which is huge news. 

And of course you’ve got all of it on a Gameboy Advance screen. Listen in as Jessika and Mike  from Ten Cent Takes come on the show to help us take a look at this bite size taste of the mutant experience.Continue Reading

We’re just not going to escape aliens at all are we? You know, for a comic that I’m not sure even existed sometimes there sure are a ton of games to go with it. It certainly helps that there’s a spin off movie (that’s vaguely related) with a spin off cartoon (that’s vaguely related to the movie but oddly kind of closer to the comics).

Yup we’re talking about Men in Black again. This time with Tristan Johnson from It’s (Probably) Not Aliens and Step Back History as we take a look at Men in Black: The Series for Game Boy Color.

It all comes back to Spider-Man doesn’t it? There’s a good reason for that, he is one of Marvel’s premier characters for a reason. We’re just going to have a Spider-Man game for every console aren’t we?

Tune in this week as Aaron Weiss from Weisscast joins the show to help break down why Spider-Man gets so much love in the gaming sphere.

No matter what you want to think, the Ang Lee Hulk film exists. And there’s a game to go with it. Yup, it’s a movie tie in game and we all know how those were back in the day.

Or do we? Listen in as Josh Sutton from Panels to Pixels takes a stab at convincing you that not only is this a good movie to go watch, but it’s also not a horrible game to go with it.Continue Reading

I know, one of the problems with the show is that the handheld versions of games exist. And that if there’s a console version I tend to just ignore the hand held ones because, let’s face it, are they ever better than the console version anyway? Especially with a series like Turok that’s built around being a first person shooter on a screen that can show really good colors that’s also bigger than 2 square inches. That’s like 5 square centimeters for all of my listeners not in the US.
Blair Farrell from Comic Gamers Assemble is here to help me see if my thought process even has any merit to it as we take a look at 5 different Turok handheld ports and see how they actually play without having to worry about those pesky home console games that always hog the spotlight.Continue Reading

The Fantastic Four? Yeah, we’re not really there yet. But I think that’s a travesty so we’re going to cheat a little bit and look at something Fantastic Four. Umm, yeah, we’ll go with that.Continue Reading
