Vidjagame Apocalypse

The incredible Godzilla Minus One is now on Netflix, so Anthony Abatte joins us to talk... not about Godzilla games (which range from "pretty good" to "abysmal"), but about Godzilla and other cultural icons who have videogames, but not ones that really capture their essence the way, say, Arkham does for Batman. Then we'll touch on Killer Klowns from Outer Space, the Yakuza live-action series news, announcements from last week's State of Play, and your favorite videogame-trope-inspiring movies.

Question of the Week: What’s a pop-culture icon you think is overdue for a definitive game?

Break song is The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny by Lemon Demon. Vidjagame Apocalypse theme by Matthew Joseph Payne.
