    Asylum is a better game, City is just a better Batman game.

    Lame answer but Marvel Ultimate Alliance. The multiplayer game with a RPG elements was awesome! Fighting all the marvel enemies with the best charters all while seeing what powers you would get as you level up was so addicting! And does infamous count since it's kind of superhero like ;)

    Firstly I've got to give a shout out to Comic Zone on the Sega Megadrive/Genesis. The art direction on that game was amazing at the time. My favourite comic book video game is Deadpool. It captured everything about the character (hyper violence/4th wall/looney sense of humor), it was genuinely funny and was actually enjoyable to play. Only issue I have is that it felt a little rushed at the end with all the best jokes and ideas done in the first half....though that maybe something to do with the development team about to lose there jobs.

    I don't give a shit about comics, and I think most western superhero comics are fucking retarded, especially anything by Marvel, but the Marvel vs. Capcom games are pretty good, and I've had a lot of fun playing UMvC3. But seriously, develop better taste and start reading some manga

    Is there a possibility for a live episode 100? Also the QOTW is still the same as last weeks on the article. My favorite game based off a comic will have to be Injustice: Gods Among Us. I was never a huge fan of MK past the third one, but Injustice pulled me in. The characters they chose are all unique, giving good variety for a fighting game. My favorite character however in the game is Lobo. His moveset is awesome, linking combos with his shotgun and chain. His super is also really cool when he burns you from the flame exhaust on his motorcycle.

    Alright. Haven't heard the podcast yet but it looks like favorite comic book video game is the QOTW. Answer: I absolutely LOVED the old Spiderman arcade game with Hawkeye, Namor, and Black Cat. Honestly felt like they drew characters out of a hat for that one. But it was really fun. Would love to see a port.

    I have beaten the Scott Pilgrim game a few times, usually while listening to podcasts. It's fun as hell, and has the only game soundtrack I've ever bought.
  • REISOW - August 10, 2014 8:04 p.m.

    QOTW: There are quite a few great comic-book inspired games. The Arkham series, The Infamous series, and Injustice. But my favorite has to be Ultimate Spider-man. It captured the look and feel of the comics perfectly.
  • Thewrastler - August 10, 2014 7:12 p.m.

    My favorite game based off a comic has got to be the incredible hulk ultimate destruction. I don't remember if I ever beat the game but the fact that I could pick up a pedestrian run them up a skyscraper and punt them off of it makes it my favorite comic book video game of all time.
  • LordZarlon - August 10, 2014 6:11 p.m.

    I'd probably have to say Doom. The first half of the movie, in particular, was pretty good. I liked the set-up and I always love the cliched premise of people entering a place, abandoned ship or lab or whatever, where a catastrophe happened and they are investigating it to see what went wrong. The second half of the movie sucked.
  • Tim_Gruver - August 10, 2014 1:51 p.m.

    QOTW: In all seriousness, The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction has to be the best comic book game simply because it was probably the least serious. In a game allegedly about Bruce Banner's damaged psyche and quelling the beast within, it was more about unleashing hell on anything you saw. If we can agree that drop-kicking a cow into orbit with the Hulk's metal boxing gloves in a 1080p remastering was boss, than gaming already has become art.
  • theguyinthecloset - August 10, 2014 11:43 a.m.

    QOTW: to be honest the only comics game I played and liked is The Wolf Among Us. BUT I have to give an honorable mention to Comic Jumper on XBLA for being a game not about a specific comic, but a game inspired by the medium of comics itself. (and also Scott Pilgrim was cool). why is it so hard to post a comment on gamesradar? rrraahh!!

    Henry : electrode (Actually a real word outside of pokemon, look it up), Onyx (also a real thing), Seel (one letter from complete and unadulterated ridicule) , klinklang (let's add the first two evolutions together guys), Mr. Mime (let's add a Mr.), luvdisc (self explainatory) , Throh (It THROWS STUFF), nosepass, ninetales (literally, it has nine tails so we call it ninetails), talonflame (are you shitting me gamefreak), Krabby, Persian (literally called a pokemon by the breed of a real life cat), voltorb (literally an orb that produces voltage), and Dewgong is two letters away from dugong which is a real life animal. And that is just scratching the surface considering how many pokemon there are. OH AND ONE MORE, to quote one Hollander Cooper: "....pineco..it's a pinecone with googly eyes..." Yes there are things like garbagemon/parrotmon/blazemon, but there are also things like kabuterimon, myotismon, grankuwagamon, metalmamemon. I will be the first to admit that they BOTH have terrible, terrible names sometimes. Neither is any better/worse than the other when it comes to lack of creativity. If you try to say one is better than the other, your fanboy is showing. Also, Lucas I agree that asylum is better than city. I couldn't find the interest to push through the last couple of hours of city. Stopped after Alfred told me I wasn't allowed to save Talia.

    Also QOTW : I'm gonna go with wolf among us. I loved it to death and can't wait for season 2, I liked it even more than walking dead to be honest. I think they're both great, but the setting and premise of fabletown is just so more more unique to me. And seeing all these characters I did know and some I didn't know with these human world situations, like beauty and the beast going into debt to try and live like royalty, was really interesting.
  • Shigeruken - August 10, 2014 12:42 a.m.

    I'm a huge Spidey nerd so I'll go with Shattered Dimensions. I discovered the game in 2011 while I was getting caught up on Dan Slott's superb run on Amazing Spider-Man, which led to me enjoying it a heck of a lot more than I should have. Growing up as a Spider-Fan in the 90s meant that I loved Miguel O'Hara (Spider-Man 2099). Seeing him come to life and kick ass was icing on the nostalgia stirring cake.
  • Sinosaur - August 9, 2014 11:48 p.m.

    I really enjoyed Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2. There was some fun stuff I missed from the first one (more costumes), but MUA1 felt rushed and half-assed starting with the second level. MUA2 was much better put together, and playing it with one of my friends was great. Even if the achievements did fuck up horribly.
  • g1rldraco7 - August 9, 2014 10:53 p.m.

    Well Henry I'm glad that you admit that the Digimon anime has a much better story. To answer the QOTW "Which is what are our favorite video game inspired by a comic book?" Mine is Deadpool the videogame because he's loud, he drinks, swears, likes to shoot, cut,dismember and blow up badguys fro money. He can regenerate no problem since his power came from Wolverine's DNA. Besides greatest video from the game is Who the Fuck is Cable?!
  • GLuna46 - August 9, 2014 9:54 p.m.

    um wasn't the QOTW "what are our favorite video game inspired by a comic book?" if so my answer: not a lot of people might agree, but the darkness is my favorite video game based off a comic. it was a fun dark take on the comic book. its a little different from the comic books, but the atmosphere was great, characters were likable. the ending was a little weird but over all it was a solid game. also had one of the most emotional scenes in any video game before i played the last of us... (spoilers) when they killed jenny in front of you.
  • LordGoomy - August 9, 2014 8:39 p.m.

    I absolutely agree that Asylum is better than City, Lucas. The question of the week is "What is your favorite game based on a comic book?", everyone. They accidentally posted the same one twice. QOTW: I'm going with a game that I recently started playing again in honor of Guardians of the Galaxy- Lego Marvel Super Heroes. Marvel's track record in video games has been somewhat uneven, but Lego Marvel was such a wonderful celebration of everything Marvel. Every character, from Iron Man to Squirrel Girl, felt like a good, unique representation of what makes that hero (or villain) special, however limited they may be by the nature of the Lego games. It is my favorite of the Lego games by far, and it also is a game that my girlfriend and I can continue to share together.

    There's no need to make a big deal out of episode 100. I would be glad if it were just another enjoyable podcast to listen to.
