Fantastic Four with Alistair Wallis (Get Soft with Dr. Snuggles)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

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 Wallis 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?

Learn such things as:

  • How many people does Marvel think 4 is?
  • What story line, if any, are we introduced to here?
  • Aren’t Fantastic Four podcasts contractually obligated to have an Air Wolf reference? Or is that just Fantasticast?
  • And much more!

Tintin Prisoners of the Sun with Kayleigh Osborne (Meddling Kids)

In another bonus episode that’s totally not just to manipulate the numbering so I can pull something off later (that’s a lie and we all know it but we’ll roll with it anyway) Kayleigh Osborne comes back to take a look at one of the world’s most well known and important comic characters. Theatrical films, cartoons from multiple decades, and running pretty much since the 1930s.

Superman can’t really be stopped by normal bad guys, we’ve established that. But what happens when Lex Luthor decides to really go after him? Oh, we’ve done that too? Ummmm, so what happens this time? It’s comics after all, so we know he isn’t really going anywhere.
