Defeat Thanos With Your Game Controller!

January 1998

Thunderbolts #10

I guess back in the day I was still too busy with my Mortal Kombat 3 to realize that this game was around, because I certainly don’t remember it! Apparently this was a predecessor to all the Marvel vs Capcom games.

Something that’s pretty cool (and pretty timely) about this game is that it loosely follows the Infinity Gauntlet story line – all the characters are fighting to get the Infinity Stones, and eventually defeat Thanos. One thing that sounds pretty cool about this game is that once characters obtain an Infinity Stone, they also get a special move/power related to that stone.

So I guess this means there’s no need to wait for the next Avengers movie – just play this game to see how it all turns out!

Quaking in Their X-Boots!

It took me a minute to figure out exactly what this was – I didn’t really do any PC gaming, so while I’ve heard of Quake, I’m not really that familiar with it. This seems to be a package that lets you re-theme your Quake game to X-Men.

So it seems that in this game, you go around, taking out evil clones of X-Men… but don’t actually have contact with the real X-Men themselves? Seems like kind of a cheat to me.

I Could Eat Wolverine for Breakfast!… Or a Snack…

After posting an entire series of ads from an X-Men comic, here’s an ad that actually features the X-Men! The ’90s were a good time for the X-Men – it seemed like there was every conceivable type of X-Men-branded product everywhere you turned! Well, here’s one result of that: X-Men gummy snacks!

Personally, I don’t think I’d want to put anything “X-ploding with power” in my mouth, but to each his own, I guess.
