Marvel Vs. Capcom (Part 1) – Episode 062

In our first ever two-part episode we explore the beginnings of Capcom’s Marvel Vs. Capcom series – X-Men Vs. Street Fighter and Marvel Super Heroes Vs. Street Fighter. We also explore the person responsible for forging the Capcom and Marvel relationship and the games that got us to the ultimate tag team battle.

How did the X-Men Animated Series influence a whole lot of fighting? Why is insanity a good thing? Which arcade game has the most annoying attract mode? Is Mr. SNK finally upgrading to the 21st century? If you had magnetokinesis would you cheat at pinball?

Other conversations include exploring the gaming experience that only Texas Instruments can provide, the complicated history of Shuma-Gorath, why Gambit is the perfect credit card spokesperson, and one heck of a bait and switch (we’re sorry).
