The Crow City of Angles with Justin Williams (SuperTangent)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

A common ghost story I hear is that the spirit can’t pass on because of unfinished business. Which is insane because we all have that, but we’ll roll with it. Imagine if instead you came back in a corporeal form to get revenge on the people who had done you wrong. Oh yeah, and you’re basically immortal until the job is done?

Justin Williams from SuperTangent comes by to look at that exact situation in The Crow City of Angels. And no, you didn’t miss an episode for the first movie tie in game since they never made one of those.

Learn such things as:

  • Why did they make a game for the second Crow movie but not the first?
  • How much fan influence did this movie have?
  • Can you really compare this game to a Superman one?
  • Check out what else I’ve covered from Acclaim.
  • And so much more!

Turok Handheld Roundup with Blair Farrell (Comic Gamers Assemble)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

I know, one of the problems with the show is that the handheld versions of games exist. And that if there’s a console version I tend to just ignore the hand held ones because, let’s face it, are they ever better than the console version anyway? Especially with a series like Turok that’s built around being a first person shooter on a screen that can show really good colors that’s also bigger than 2 square inches. That’s like 5 square centimeters for all of my listeners not in the US.

Blair Farrell from Comic Gamers Assemble is here to help me see if my thought process even has any merit to it as we take a look at 5 different Turok handheld ports and see how they actually play without having to worry about those pesky home console games that always hog the spotlight.

Learn such things as:

  • How do you even port these games down anyway?
  • Why didn’t they just make a different handheld universe like TMNT?
  • How are these games rated E?
  • Why does Chris know conversions from inches to centimeters? Just kidding, that’s because he’s trying to go live in New Zealand.
  • And so much more!

Spawn for Game Boy Color with Adam Higgins (Odd Dad Out)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

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.

Learn such things as:

  • How do Adam and Chris and basically everyone Chris was friends with growing up know Spawn?
  • Is Todd going to come give Chris and Adam a dirty look?
  • What major innovation does this game have going for it seemingly out of nowhere?
  • And so much more!

Scud the Disposable Assassin with Brandon Cruz (Rick and Morty Podcast, Submitted For Approval, Apathetic Enthusiasm)

Facebooktwitterredditmail

The 1990s were a fun time in comics. A lot of the indie comics from the 80s had either run their course or were brought into one of the major publishers. But the indies still existed, and Scud the Disposable Assassin was one of those that came out.

Listen in as Brandon Cruz from Interdimensional RSS comes to talk about how a comic that not a lot of us have probably heard of have lead to (what he and tons of other people have told me) what is one of the best animated things in existence.

Learn such things as:

  • How did this not catch on?
  • Why didn’t Chris get Rob Schrab to come on the show? Hint, Chris didn’t ask because he’s a big baby.
  • What life lessons can you learn from a robot that refuses to kill a being when that is the entire purpose of robot’s existence, and how can you use that lesson to help make yourself a better person overall?
  • And so much more!

Facebooktwitterredditmail

Oh, you thought that we were done with Dragon Ball related stuff did you? Or that the manga ending meant that the anime would end too. Well jokes on you because there’s a whole different anime series that was only inspired by the manga and of course we got a game to go with that too. Like it or not.

Blade with TJ Johsnon (Voice From the Underground)

The Marvel cinematic universe might have only existed since 2008, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t Marvel movies before. And I’m not talking about that quack of a Howard the Duck movie either.
