Backdoor caucuses. Secret handshakes. Faked deaths. Suicide pacts in towns that vanish off the map. These video game conspiracy theories aren’t just real, they’re… wait… I mean… These video game conspiracies aren’t just theories, they’re real! The truth isn’t out there; it’s right here.

In space, no one can hear you scream. Because it’s a vacuum and there’s no sound. So this episode isn’t exactly scientifically accurate. The Continue? boys (Dom, Nick and Josh) and their special guests take a slow ride into the starry night. Tune in and let us know if you agree.

We are vengeance. We are the night. We are the Batmen. You might think there’s only room in the world for one Batman, but as we’re about to show you, the universe is filled with all kinds of Batmans. Handsome ones. Strong ones. Skinny ones. Funny ones. Sad ones. The Continue? boys (Paul, Nick and Josh) and their special guests whittle down a list of prospective candidates to find the very best of the best. Tune in and let us know if you agree.

Drugs have become such a normal part of life, they’ve slipped into fictional worlds in books, movies and most importantly, video games. While not every game allows you to get wreckt, a handful of our favorite games do let us trip balls vicariously through digital avatars. Those are our favorites. The Continue? boys (Paul, Nick and Josh) and their special guests get high on their own supply this week. Tune in and let us know if you’d blaze blaze 4:20 with their picks.

When you pay money for something, you expect it to work. About the only time getting something broken in return for currency is acceptable is when you plan to use it in some kind of ‘Real Steel’ scenario. It’s never, ever, ever, forever-ever acceptable when it comes to video games. The Continue? boys (Paul, Nick and Josh) and their special guests reveal their picks for the most broken games ever. Tune in and let us know if you agree.

We love our video games, but you know what we love even more? Bonuses. Unlocking the bonus stages in some of our favorite franchises was one of our favorite parts of gaming growing up, and we often look back on those days with fond memories of button-mashing madness. Sometimes though, these special stages were skill-based, and required even more precise timing than the base game. Whatever your preference, there’s no denying bonus levels were awesome. That’s why we put together this list of the Best Video Game Bonus Levels.

Five Worst Video Game Translations (5×5) by Luke Brown Edit Share on Facebook Share on Twitter We all make mistakes. It’s part of life. However, some mistakes are more hilarious than others.

HERE’S THE THING EPISODE 16: WHY DO WE LOVE SUPER MARIO?

If our weekly Ask Chris column isn’t enough of definitive comic book (and pro wrestling) opinions for you, good news: ComicsAlliance is proud to present Here’s The Thing, a series of videos where you can join our own extremely opinionated senior writer, Chris Sims, as he dives into comics history to explain why you’re wrong and he’s right.

This week, Chris takes a look at one of his favorite characters: Mario, the high-jumping, kart racing, princess-rescuing plumber from Nintendo’s enduringly popular Super Mario Bros. games and spinoffs! He loves that guy, and odds are pretty good that you do too. But why? And how much of a character does Mario really have?

Show Notes:

  • Pick up the SH Figuarts Mario to adorn your desk, too.
  • Sadly, most Mario comics are currently out of print, but you can usually find the Nintendo Comics System lurking in quarter boxes everywhere.
  • All war is class war, and all class war is Genesis vs. SNES. This is a fact.

For the most part, video games could be considered rather wholesome entertainment. Then there are the shining few that are so vulgar, so raunchy, so dirrty, you’re afraid to let people know you’ve played them. You might even feel a little gross and sweaty afterwards. The Continue? gang (Paul, Nick and Josh) and their special guests get dirtier than Xtina when discussing the dirtiest video games. Tune in and let us know if you agree.
