Rescue the Princess! – #0026! Batman: Arkham City!

We look back and review the story of Batman: Arkham City!

Major plot spoilers are involved so BE WARNED.

We’ve also jam packed this podcast with gameplay so you can see sexy Catwoman slink around as we analyze her VITAL role in the game!

Was this the game Batman fans deserve but not the one they need?


Rescue the Princess! – #0013! To You, Mark Hamill!

It’s episode THIRTEEN of the podcast and it’s a special one with a special guest: Shawn of Rogue’s Gallery! If you like comics, you buy them there or may a goblin toss you off a bridge! But wait! It’s a REALLY special podcast because it’s the last time you’ll see Cooleto on the show! He’s been hired by Rocksteady Studios to write the script for a Batman dating sim where you get to hook Batman up with a variety of characters, including Harley Quinn!

So yes, it’s the COMICCAST semi-uncut, dedicated to Mark Hamill and his glorious voice! Rescue the Princess talks about comics, videogames, and how some are done right and how some are done terribly, terribly wrong! Then we discuss the XTREME 90s, the comics we’d like to see as games, and movies of summer 2011! The Walking Dead videogame is being made by Telltale Games, by the way! From the team behind Sam & Max? Boy, we’re definitely in for some laughs! NSFW podcast like always!

  • DC Universe Online
  • Dead Space

And that’s it! No more talking about Spider-man on Rescue the Princess ever again! What are your favorite videogames based off comics? What comics would make excellent videogames? Should Shawn replace Cooleto as the new co-host? Email the show or post some comments!
