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!

Videogame spoilers (not really, more like topics):

  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • Batman: Arkham City
  • DC Universe Online
  • Dead Space
  • Dead Space 2
  • Marvel: Ultimate Alliance 2
  • Spider-man: Maximum Carnage
  • Spider-man: Shattered Dimensions
  • X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Comic spoilers/topics:

  • Marvel’s Civil War
  • Scott Pilgrim
  • Shingeki no Kyojin (Advance of the Giants/Attack on Titan)
  • The Walking Dead

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!
