TOP 10: GAMES YOU SHOULDN’T EXPECT TO SEE ME COVER ANY TIME SOON

Since I started thinking about making this site and actually putting it into action, I’ve accumulated A LOT of comic book themed games, primarily on consoles running through the NES up to the PS4. I haven’t sat down to count them lately, but right now the number is some where over 100, perhaps even several…

JAMES, MIKE AND BOOTSY FINISH SILVER SURFER ON THE NES

One of my favorite Angry Video Game Nerd videos of all time is the Silver Surfer episode from back in 2007: As someone who could only finish Silver Surfer on the NES with the help of the infinite continues cheat code, I totally understand every point made in that video. This week on James and Mike…

WHY A LEGEND OF ZELDA LIVE-ACTION SERIES IS A TERRIBLE IDEA

As last week turned into the weekend the final big piece of entertainment news that started circulating everywhere was that Netflix was in talks with Nintendo to make a live-action The Legend of Zelda tv-series, described as Game of Thrones for the whole family.

As a kid of around 6 or 7, I had little to no knowledge of The Rocketeer’s history in comics, but what I did know is that there was a movie about this golden helmet wearing character zipping around in a jet-pack, shooting gangsters and saving the day. As you can more than likely tell,…

REVIEW: BATMAN RETURNS (SNES)

Like Sunsoft before them, Konami produced both an 8 and 16-bit versions of a Batman game of the same name in Batman Returns. Unlike Sunsoft however, who somehow managed to make worse games despite having access to better hardware in both the cases of Batman on Sega Genesis and Batman: Revenge of the Joker, Returns…

REVIEW: BATMAN RETURNS (NES)

When it came to adapting Batman’s escapades from the big screen in video game format the first time around, Sunsoft more or less had the monopoly on the character, producing games on everything from the NES, Game Boy and Sega Genesis. For the sequel to Batman, aptly named Batman Returns, the video game licensing was shared…

REVIEW: SWAMP THING (GAME BOY)

Not only did THQ give us the displeasure of one bad Swamp Thing game, they decided to vomit another game based on the character for the Game Boy, courtesy of the developer of The Flash for the handheld, Equilibrium. The best thing that can be said about Swamp Thing on the Game Boy is that…
