Power Button - Episode 111: Superheroes And Superzeroes
November 01, 2013
This week's episode of Power Button centers on a discussion of our favorite video games starring superheroes. Blake Grundman and I spend an hour talking about the best and worst digital moments featuring Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man, Hulk, Iron Man, and many more. We hit the Arkham trilogy (including the recently released Batman: Arkham Origins), take on the infamous Superman 64 while wondering what it would take to make a good Superman game, focus on the open-world PlayStation titles focusing on Peter Parker's web-slinging adventures, and recall Sega's glitchy Hulk: Ultimate Destruction among other things. Meanwhile, Blake has a special charity livestreaming event coming up this weekend that he'd like you watch. : Join us, true believers!
