Moving Pixels Podcast: The Superhero and the Video Game

Originally conceived of as a discussion of the best superhero video games of all time, the Moving Pixels Podcast crew quickly discovered that super powered games have been -- for the most part -- less than super.

Originally conceived of as a discussion of the best superhero video games of all time, the Moving Pixels Podcast crew quickly discovered that super powered games have been -- for the most part -- less than super.

With that in mind, our discussion of the presentation of superheroes in video games became, instead, a discussion of the history of the superhero in video games -- more particularly the refinements that have lead to more interesting gaming experiences within this genre.

This podcast is also available via iTunes.
