“PARKER! Reblog pictures of the SPOIDAHMAN!”
On this week’s episode of the Hey Poor Podcast, I “My Life Was A Mistake” Coleman is joined by Jay “Behold The Juice” Petrequin for an episode that gets into everything from the real-life implications of gamer-focused political campaigns to how Telltale’s Batman game managed to cause an international incident with Russia. No, seriously. It’s been a crazy week, but we still have time to talk about what makes Mario Odyssey so great, the hilariously bad DOOM portable port, the future of the Nintendo Switch, and how Thor Ragnarok‘s Jack-Kirby-inspired comic book stylings might have made it the best Marvel film of all time. All this and more, only on the Hey Poor Podcast!
Games/Films/Etc of the week: Mario Odyssey, Rayman Legends Switch port, Life is Strange: Before The Storm Episode 2, Superbeat Xonic Switch port, DOOM for Switch is garbage, Nier “Automataomata”, Binding of Isaac Switch port, Thor Ragnarok (minor spoilers from 1:00:13 to 1:05:25)
Audience Questions: good creators, what Brianna Wu’s political campaign means for games, favorite hot drinks
The News: the buck-wild saga of how the Telltale Batman game caused an international incident, the SAG-AFTRA strike ends, L.A. Noire and DOOM Switch ports are way, way too large
