Square Enix and Disney are set to announce some new information about Kingdom Hearts III at this year’s D23 Expo. Every ounce of Kingdom Hearts III news is worth its weight in platinum, so fans should be overjoyed to know there is a surprise in store. GamerPage has reported that there will be something coming and even pointed out an interesting piece from a Square Enix press release.
Spider-Man: Homecoming already has a ton of pressure on it. While the webslinger’s debut in Civil War was praised, he now has to try and carry a film on his own in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Making it even tougher is that the Sam Raimi trilogy has already adapted some of the best storylines and villains from the comics, and the Amazing series’ performance indicated that maybe there...[Read More]
Throughout my early gaming days, anything made from a movie, comic book, or otherwise popular franchise outside of gaming was usually a recipe for disaster. However, there has been a recent upswing in quality with titles made with intellectual licenses. Sure, its still not perfect, but licensed games are getting better.

The initial reboot has come and gone, and now it’s time to see if this series can take off. So, does it swing?
After a busy weekend of rocking out, followed by some hardcore napping, we finally got together to record this week’s podcast episode. Episode 034 of Marooners’ Talk, “Do A Barrel Roll!”, covers various topics. We get off to a slow start, but to be fair it was Monday evening, and not every opening can be fireworks and pinatas, so LAY OFF. There are a few moments of positive...[Read More]
Here we are friends, the end of Spidey-Month. I’d like to take a moment to thank all the writers and artists from Spidey history, for it was their stories that inspired this month and my love of the characters. As such, let’s talk about the essentials, the best of the best in those stories. As always, these are my opinions, so please accept them as such and check out these great tales.
I heard it said that a great super hero is how well you can mix him with other characters. In Spidey’s long history, he’s teamed up with a lot of different people, both within the Marvel universe and outside it. As such, I feel that I should talk about his best team-ups. Keep in mind, these are what I enjoyed the most for character interaction and significance, not a countdown, nor a c...[Read More]
While it’s possible to talk about every Spidey game, I personally look at the Spidey franchise as starting in the PS1 days. So, since I’ve played every game since then, here’s my mini-review/overview of all of them.
In keeping with Ahmed’s run of Spidey Month pieces, Episode 026 of Marooners’ Talk, titled, “Spidey’s Turning 50,” focuses primarily on Spider-Man, with the occasional tangental comic character stealing focus for a few moments. We ran a little long, as we will often do when we get into our critical nerd modes, but managed to come to a close about ten minutes before we...[Read More]
By this point, it’s kind of a given that while Norman Osborn is Spidey’s greatest foe, Venom will probably always be his most popular foe. But really, who or what is Venom? Villain, anti-hero, monster, parasite? The fact is, Venom is a lot of different people, and yet the same all the time. But, like a lot of Spidey’s villains, he’s had good times and bad times as far as de...[Read More]
