Alright, things are really starting to creep closer and closer to Marvel vs Capcom with a game that finally introduces the concept of Marvel characters fighting against people from a whole different universe. Plus a dose of Japan getting an amazing game that didn’t come out over here and there’s reason why and I’m not salty about that at all. Nope, not one bit.
Listen in as Chris Sims from The ISB comes to talk about X-Men vs Street Fighter and we geek out about X-Men and Street Fighter and fighting games in general.
Comics in the 90s were special. Big muscles, pouches, weird body proportions that just don’t work with real world physics. Spy adventures that crossed international borders like it’s nothing. Oh yeah, can’t forget about boobs and butts. Listen in as Chris Sims comes on the show to talk about Danger Girl. Which we swear is worth readying we promise. Just don’t bring it to school. And if you do anyway it’s not our fault.
You’ve got a character going around in specialized armor defending the world. Flying around, blasting things, certainly this has got to be the coolest character known to man. But is it Ironman? Or is it X-O Manowar? Joke’s on you, it’s both! Listen in as Kyle Federline from Real Dudes Podcast joins the show to take a look at maybe one of the weirdest crossovers that there ever was. From the video game side of things anyway.
In the second of our Play Comics Origins series things are taking a different turn. Not only do we have a game that follows a comic story arc, it actually follows the comic story arc. What a concept!Listen in as Scott Niswander from NerdSync comes by to take a look at Marvel Super Heroes which takes inspiration from the Infinity Gauntlet story arc. Like for real, it actually follows the story. Kind of.
You know what’s crazy? That we somehow got to the PS1 without a home console Fantastic Four game. You’ve got one of the most iconic groups in the Marvel Universe, a group that pretty much defines what it means to be Marvel, and it takes this long to get a game made? It’s pretty bad if you ask me.Come listen in as Alistair from Get Soft with Dr. Snuggles comes by the show to talk Fantastic Four and this game that clearly suffers from a thing known as “being an early 3D game.” But does that make it bad?
It’s finally time to check out the Capcom Fighters, and what better place to start than at the beginning of that run? The X-Men have been a vital part of this show from the start and there’s really no better place to get things rolling here than with a look at a game based on the Fatal Attractions story arc.Well, based on might be a strong phrase. Listen in as Miles Stokes and Matt Hunter from Jay and Miles X-Plain the X-Men stop by to take a look at Children of the Atom and all of the history and lore behind it.
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.
