Podcast: DC Bullet

with one comment


This week Fred and Trees celebrate the release of Injustice: Gods Among Us by discussing old games based on DC comics (which pretty much means Batman and Superman titles).  Also remember next week is our game club with Guardian Heroes (Saturn/XBLA).

Title reference: “DC Bullet” is the official logo used by the company from the 80s until recently.

Opening Song: “Superman Theme” from the Famicom title of the same name.

Closing Song: “Boss Theme” from Batman: Return of the Joker on the NES.

Cover Art: “Killing Joke”
