Every super hero story has to eventually end. Maybe not in our world, but in the comic world as long as timelines don’t get reset or just stop progressing then all the heroes will eventually get old. Except The Phantom, who just straight up hasn’t died. Because he can’t.
Listen in as Karrington Martin from Real Dudes Podcast comes to talk about Phantom 2040 and how it relates to the Phantom comics, and of course the SNES and Genesis games that came out with it.
In the far far future of 2055 the world has somehow survived World War III. Except with all of the nuclear explosions and toxins in the environment and stuff like that the world’s population has all turned into mutants. Let’s ignore that the science doesn’t work there at all. But one scientist found a way to turn mutants back into humans! And yes, we’re ignoring that science there as well.Listen in as Karrington Martin from Real Dudes Podcast comes on to talk about this little known comic (at least to everyone I talked to) that someone has a game that is pretty well known game, at least in the Retro Gaming circles.
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.
In the “fictional” future a single person gets to be judge, jury, and executioner. Well, a bunch of single people but you get the idea. This is the world of instant justice. This is the faaaaar far future of 2080.
Drew Hallum from Reel Feels and CritStorm Cast comes by the show to take a look at the 1995 Sylvester Stallone classic Judge Dredd. Just make sure you follow the law while you’re doing it so you don’t get judged!
Imagine if you thought so much of yourself that you truly believed that you could take on Death itself, and that you’re right. Do you really think that Death would let you win, even if you won?Ed Annunziata from Playchemy (and conveniently a developer on this game) comes by the show to talk Chakan the Forever Man, and how his story makes that from The Devil Went Down to Georgia look like a tale from Muppet Babies.
Garfield is everywhere and there’s nothing we can do about it. From toys to newspapers to school book fairs there’s no escaping the universe tat Jim Davis has brought upon us with this pesky feline and all of his other animal friends.But what happens when he and Odie accidentally create a robot monster? Listen in as Jessie Cooper from the Alphabet Flight and Creepy Critters podcasts comes to talk about this lasagna eating and marketing juggernaut.
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.
Remember back in the 1990s when Wolverine was everywhere and you couldn’t get away from him? When if there was ever going to be a game focusing on just a single member of the X-Men that it would unquestionably be him? And how we already got that once? Well guess what, it’s time for round two!
Listen in as Chris Baker from SuperHero.vg and author of WRONG! Retro Games, You Messed Up Our Comic Book Heroes! comes by to look at the 16 bit entry. Or is it entries? Just listen, I’m sure we’ll figure it out along the way.
The X-Men Return in the sequel to the classic Genesis game. This time around they actually get to leave the mansion and head out into the world. But can they defeat the Phalanx when they come to destroy all mutants?
Listen in as Brandon Cruz from Apathetic Enthusiasm, or is it Intergalactic RSS, or maybe it’s Submitted For Your Approval, aww crap I think we might have a clone problem…
