Zen Intergalactic Ninja With Steve Honeycutt (Ray Can’t Sleep)

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.

Fist of the North Star with Jordan Forbes (Shonen Flop)

Post apocalyptic mayhem. New societies and population groups popping up and insisting that they are living the right way. The power struggle between might and right. Giant weaponized vehicles storming across the desert sands. OK, maybe not that last one, but what do I know?

Good thing I have Jordan Forbes from Shonen Flop to help me out with a look at Fist of the North Star on NES. Listen in as we look at yet another game that should have been featured earlier in the run of the show but I just didn’t know it was based on a comic so we’re making up for it now.

Fester’s Quest with Michael Bivens (Silent Journeys)

Everyone that I know who knows who The Addams family is knows them from the 1960s TV show or the 90s movies. A few people from this game. But basically nobody that I know knew that The Addams Family was a comic. For real, do you know anybody who knew that? I sure didn’t.

Neither did this week’s guest Michael Bivens from Silent Journeys. But he very much did know about the old TV show. I’m really glad I had someone for this episode that grew up with the show a lot more than I did.

The Rocketeer with Derek Graziano (Rolling Misadventures)

Pretty much everyone dreams of flying. And of not getting on the wrong side of gangsters and Nazis. But mostly of flying. So imagine how cool it would be if a jetpack just fell into your lap! Or rather the seat of your airplane. Oh who care, YOU’VE GOT A JET PACK!

Listen in as Derek Graziano from Rolling Misadventures comes by the show to take a look at The Rocketeer and a pair of games that really couldn’t have been much more different if they’d tried.

Alien 3 (April Fools) with Keith Gawla (Pop Up Film Cast)

A lot of you (and by that I mean at least 1 person) has asked if I’d ever look at the Alien franchise. This is as close as I’ll get since the movie clearly came first and didn’t get made with the comic in mind. But you asked for it, and there are comics. So why not?Keith Gawla from Pop Up Film Cast comes by to continue ridiculing me for my horrible appearance on his show.

Batman Returns with Roger Reichardt (Gamerheads)

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.

Return of the Joker with Steven Pappas and Chris Grimmett

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.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Handheld Roundup with John Horsley

Wolverine with Doug Hensley

Wolverine is the X-Man that everyone loved in the 90s so of course he got his own game. But is that nostalgia trip enough to make Chris and Doug Hensley from Gaming & Chill enjoy a run through another LJN released game?

Spider-Man: Return of the Sinister Six Featuring Issa Wurie

Spider-Man rears his head again, and it’s still not anywhere near as good as that PS1 classic we all love. This time Issa from Young Free & Coupled takes a swing at the wall crawler as he takes on the Sinister Six in this NES, Master System, and Game Gear title from LJN.

Punisher for NES and Gameboy

The Punisher is a great character with a rich history. From killing the Marvel Universe to hunting Spider-Man to being as close to a hero as a stone cold killer can get, we’re taking a look at a brief glimpse into the Punisher comic universe and then diving straight into the NES and Gameboy games.

Little Nemo

Ah, this little hidden gem works on multiple levels. Listen in as Chris and his special guest/wife Kayleigh take a look at the Little Nemo comics, animated movie, and the game for the NES.

Uncanny X-Men

X-Men is one of the most beloved comic franchises there is, no question about it. So of course they get this LJN steaming pile of shit. Honestly, I want to just go crawl in a hole and cry myself to sleep.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Arcade Game

We have our first revisit to a franchise, so if you haven’t checked out our episode about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles you should probably do that.

Dick Tracy

We knew basically nothing about Dick Tracy coming into this. Well, nothing except that he wears yellow and he’s a detective. So clean slate for this show!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a game we all know from a comic series we all know exists. Ha, joke’s on us because most of the people I know grew up on the cartoons.

Batman the Video Game

Ah, Batman. What can you say about someone with such a storied past? Well, Chris and Sean go off on an over sized episode that tries to capture the magic of one of the better games on the NES.

Snoopy Sports

Wow, this one is horrible. Not the episode, it’s pretty sweet. But the game itself? It’s pretty bad.

Superman

Sean joins Chris and the show goes insane in the best way possible. The language gets more adult though so you might want to be careful about that. We try no to go overboard, but no promises.
