#11: "Videoman, why?! The Dark Side of Superhero Games"


or "I Have No Face But I Must Quip!"

In part two of the Videoman Saga, the 8-Bit Experts tackle the less-glamorous side of video game adaptations. How do adaptations with the best of intentions so often end so badly? How close did we come to battling Heath Ledger's Joker on the Xbox? Who decided to put stealth levels in a Hulk game? Why is Aquaman's hair so breathtaking? Where did those bats come from? WHO STOLE SUPERMAN'S FACE?!

To find out, well, you'll just have to listen!

#9: "Videoman, No! The Bright Side of Superhero Games"


or "Respawn, harlequin, said the 8-Bit Man!"

Prepare yourself for a next-generation multimedia event™! In this episode, the unreal experts rock out to SNES symphonies as they look at the most high-rated entries in a low-rated genre: the comic book game. How has the arc of the superhero game mirrored the arc of the entire industry? Why did anyone ever think you'd want to play Cyclops? And which is more magical: mall arcades, or pizza arcades? To find out, well, you'll just have to listen!

EDITOR'S NOTE: We've got something special planned for March, but stay tuned for part two of this series in April, where we'll look at some of the less-impressive entries in the history of game adaptations. Oh god, how is the Hulk supposed to sneak past these guards...

All and this more, in the link!
