Put on the cape and footie pajamas and get ready for an unintentionally superheroic, comic-focused episode as Brandon, Tom, Josh, and special guest ZACK (oh my GOD he’s actually here) talk about some of the big news out of the New York Comic-Con! Movies, games, comic books, and combinations thereof: this episode’s got it all! Plus, a special intermission and more listener emails!
0:00:00 – It’s the last day of the NYCC, everybody! Woo!
0:03:14 – Archie is going to publish an ongoing Mega Man monthly comic! And you know what? That’s actually really cool news!
0:10:38 – Like a hurricane of non-sequiturs, Zack finally arrives to the recording
0:11:27 – Sega wants the bad Sonic games of recent years yanked off store shelves… could you be more specific, Sega?
0:15:05 – We jaw on for a bit about or mutual love for the X-Men Arcade Game before groaning cautiously at the newly announced X-Men: Destiny by Silicon Knights
0:20:24 – Sega’s showing off their Captain America game! Mixed reactions abound.
0:25:14 – And now: Zack’s semi-regular Deadpool news update/rant.
0:30:29 – Four new fighters for MvC3! And take a wild guess who our personal favorite is…
0:48:44 – Zack Snyder is officially directing the next Superman movie! Somehow this news leads to a discussion of Marvel’s treatment of female characters
1:10:44 – Tom’s tried his hand at Twisted Pixel’s Comic Jumper! You know what that would segue nicely into? A talk abut superheroes in comedy properties.
1:18:04 – Listener Emails! First, Zack picks up the slack and responds to some questions from last week. Let Dr. Z make it all better.
1:25:57 – Zack verbally forges an email to reveal the terrible secret of Jump Kick Punch!
1:27:28 – Billy writes in to ask us what our last meal as death row inmates would be.
1:31:08 – Billy ALSO writes in to ask us about which characteristics define an eastern gaming culture versus a western gaming culture. Hoo boy, let’s… let’s try and handle THIS one succinctly.
1:40:09 – Andrews misses Zack, and also calls out Josh on a statement he made about DLC fighting game characters…
1:47:10 – Tyler writes in to present us with a distinct honor! For himself.
