WRONG! Retro Games, You Messed Up Our Comic Book Heroes! by Chris Baker and Matthew Waite

THE MOST MESSED-UP MOMENTS FROM 14 YEARS OF SUPERHERO VIDEO GAMES – AWESOMELY NERDY NITPICKS!
If you’re a superhero fan who loves video games, you’ve experienced firsthand how pretty much every title out there – good or bad, remembered or forgotten – does something that’s absolutely, unapologetically WRONG! with its source material. This ebook documents the most egregious – and most hilarious – offenders from the moment Superman flew onto the Atari 2600 in 1978 all the way through 1992, when Konami’s classic X-Men sucked in quarter after quarter in arcades.
NEARLY 80 SUPERHERO GAMES
Some you’ve played. Some you haven’t. And quite a few you never even knew existed in the first place. Some high-/lowlights:
Purple Dark Knight vs. Green Joker in Batman: The Video Game (NES)
Proven instances of “slapping a license” on an already-developed game
Games that stripped Wolverine and He-Man of their most iconic weaponry
A questionable transportation method for the Man of Steel in Superman (NES)
A Transformers game from the creator of Pitfall!
The strangest comic book license ever to hit the Sega Genesis
The most unnecessary tie-in to a superhero animated series of all time
The Danger Mouse Trilogy
That one lonely Thundercats game
ANSWERS TO BURNING QUESTIONS YOU DIDN’T EVEN KNOW TO ASK
Who is “the Princess Peach of superhero games”?
Who was the first Marvel character to be featured in three games? And what’s the single gaming appearance he’s had since 1985?
Which super-character is most consistently misrepresented in games?
What common superhero gaming feature was pioneered by LJN’s otherwise absolutely horrible X-Men NES game?
Which hero’s primary gaming nemesis is someone he still has yet to even meet in the comics?
What do an NES game and a major restaurant chain agree is Wolverine’s favorite food?
Why is Carnage getting naked on my SNES?!
GAMING PLATFORMS YOU LOVED…OR DIDN’T KNOW EXISTED
Atari 2600 | Intellivision | Commodore 64 | Nintendo Entertainment System | Game Boy | Super NES | Sega Master System | Genesis | Game Gear | Lynx | ZX Spectrum | MSX | PC-DOS | MORE!
YOUR FAVORITE HEROES (AND SOME YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF)
From Marvel! Spider-Man | Wolverine and the X-Men | Hulk | Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Vision, and a bunch of other Avengers | Punisher | Human Torch and the Thing from the Fantastic Four | Silver Surfer | Howard the Duck
From DC! Superman | Batman | Flash | Swamp Thing
From Other Comic Publishers! Conan | Flash Gordon | Judge Dredd | Ex-Mutants
From Toy Lines and Cartoons! Transformers | Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles | He-Man and the Masters of the Universe | Bartman and Radioactive Man from The Simpsons | G.I. Joe | Danger Mouse | Gobots | Thundercats
From Commercials! Domino’s Pizza’s Noid | Kool-Aid Man
From Copyright Infringement! The Amazing Spider-Bat
ABOUT THE DUDE WHO WROTE THIS STUFF
With years-long stints at Marvel and LucasArts (you know…home to Star Wars games), Chris Baker has played a role in the release of more than 40 game releases since 2005. To name a few: Marvel vs. Capcom 3, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions, Marvel Pinball, Star Wars Battlefront II, LEGO Star Wars II…plus quite a few he’d rather not mention while trying to make himself sound awesome. He also worked in the games press from 1998-2005, most notably as an editor at Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine, where he wrote about hundreds of games.

The Land: Founding: A LitRPG Saga (Chaos Seeds Book 1) by Aleron Kong

Getting eaten alive is the worst! Stabbings, maimings, and corrosive black magic are not that great either, but you really don’t want to be a wolf treat!
That is the kind of hands on, “teeth on,” education you get when you are summoned to The Land.
James did not want to be summoned!
Not really… well a maybe, just a bit!
But he had certainly not AGREED to be summoned!

Well technically speaking he HAD agreed, but good god, who had the time to read all of that fine print when there was epic gaming to be done!
When DangerZone Industries had released the latest and greatest VRMMORPG, James, and millions of other virtual reality players, had sought purpose and self-definition in this new world. The tag line “Live the life your soul was meant for,” had captured the hearts and minds of his entire generation.
“The Land,” was the largest and most dynamic virtual reality game of all time. James and his friends had devoted countless hours, and become one of the top teams in the game. They were at the brink of greatness, but then there was this light! (it was predictably white, but whatever!)
When he was actually summoned to The Land, it was both disturbing and exhilarating. When he then became entangled in the eternal war of sprites and goblins, the unsavory practices of the local king, and had a memorable night at the inn called the Whistling Hen, he came to one clear conclusion: Again, getting eaten alive is really REALLY the worst!
While uncovering such deep philosophical knowledge, James will forge a place in this new world, and hopefully avoid the machinations of those who want him to destroy it. What does it mean to be a Chaos Seed anyway???

Reviews for the series
‘A mad, insane totally awesome sci-fi story… With sharp writing and an edgy, fast-paced plot, it’s easy to get lost in the game yourself. The extensive and graphic world building with The Loop should especially impress gamers for the authentic feel it gives. ‘ — Amazon top 500 reviewer

‘The book is hard to express unless you have read it. Its equal parts futuristic and equals parts dramatic. The ordeal is like entering the movie world of TRON with a touch of the TV series Quantum Leap… Intelligent, imaginative.’ — classicbookreading.com

‘Entertaining And Totally Engrossing’ — Amazon UK Reader

‘As the rule states: the name of the game is maim… I enjoyed the ease of read and the story kept me going until the very end.’ — Liquid Frost, Amazon top 100 reviewer

‘Groundhog day, set in a video game/virtual world… Fast-paced and action-filled.’ — Amazon US Reader

‘I believe that the mark of a truly talented writer is their ability to leave you wanting the story to not end or impatiently await the next one. Harmon definitely has that ability and has now proved it in multiple genres.’ — Amazon US reader

Note to readers: The Feedback Loop takes place twenty-five years before the Life is a Beautiful Thing Series. It shares the same world, but is a standalone series that focuses on virtual entertainment dreamworlds and the people who are trapped in them. The next book in the series,Steampunk is Dead, is out now!
