Bum-ba-BAAAAH! Bumbumbumbumbum-ba-BAAAAH! This week, we talk about Super Hero games. Licensed from Marvel, DC, or independent publishers or game systems that created their own universe. What games are out there to sate your Silver Age or Modern Era lust? How do super-hero games differ from normal RPGs? Tune in to find out more.
Note: This episode was originally recorded February 25, 2014. We spoke at length during several points about game designer and author Aaron Allston. Two days later on February 27, Aaron collapsed at a convention and passed away. I don’t need to say what an influence Mr. Allston was to the gaming community, because we say it many times on this episode. This episode is dedicated to his memory.
