Yu-Gi-Oh is something I never really got into growing up. Or now for that matter since I’ve gotten into some things now that I should have gotten into when I was younger. Although I was kind of around it since I was into Pokemon and Magic: the Gathering so it’s not a totally 100% new thing to me. Plus the memes.
Good thing I somehow convinced Luke Herr to come back for another session of “Luke Explains Things To Chris that Chris Should Already Know About.” This time he takes on Yu-Gi-Oh and a combo shot of games in Forbidden Memories and Dark Duel Stories. Will we be trapped in the shadow realm for attempting this? Only one way to find out!
Ninjas are cool. Aliens are cool. So why not make a ninja that’s also an alien? And also has a team of rag tag environment saving sidekicks to help him out? Saving the environment via something aimed at kids and hoping they’ll pressure their adult overlords into following suit is still cool right?
Enter Steve Honeycutt from Ray Can’t Sleep to help us take a look at this alien life form that inexplicably wants to save the Earth.
Spawn was an interesting character for me growing up, and I’ll bet I’m not the only one. I could recognize him no problem. I’m pretty sure I knew that he was a comic character. But I couldn’t have told you anything about him besides things that you could guess from his appearance.
Listen in as Adam Higgins from Odd Dad Out comes to reminisce about a childhood idea of Spawn and the hilarity of having an E rated Spawn game.
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.
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.
Just like back in the 1990s, we can’t escape the world of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. List this week as John Horsley from Spoiler Country joins the fun to look at the titles for the original Gameboy (yay….) and Tournament Fighters (YAY!)
The Ninja Turtles pretty much sum up the 1990s. But what happens when Megan and RJ from Oh No! Lit Class come on the show to look at not 1, not 2, but 3 games all in one shot? Can we handle that much excitement? Or does Shredder take one of his many forms to strike us down?
The X-Men return with an arcade game that came to home consoles a mere 18 years later based on a cartoon pilot that eventually became our beloved 90s X-Men cartoon. Listen as Chris is joined by John Horsley and Kenric Reagan of Spoiler Country take a look at this gem of the 90s arcade world.
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.
