  1. My problem with Avengers Arena is it seems pretty obvious that the whole thing is happening in virtual reality. It’s the only excuse for Arcade being so powerful. I don’t wanna plop down my $4 for months, just to have them all wake up in pods at the end and walk away.

    • Wow, That theory sounds very plausible,,,,,I was curious why Arcade was so powerful all of a sudden.

    • It’s certainly a plausible theory given what we’ve seen so far, but I can’t see a concept like that getting past the pitch stage, let alone actually seeing print. I may be wrong, but I’m confident that Dennis Hopeless has something trickier in the works.

  2. Its a 2.99$ title, but that theory actually makes a lot is sense. That would be a pretty disappointing ending.

    • I suppose that makes sense of the power meters, or whatever they’re called.

      As for Batman, perhaps Joker Horse will battle Bat Cow?

  3. I think it is pretty obvious that Arcade has an Infinity Gem, the reality one.

  4. Just wanted to thank you guys for answering my question thoughtfully and honestly, all the advice will be taken to heart. Oh and also, Sherlock Bing Crosby is fantastic.

  5. I think Clint saw DOOM in the door way without his mask on.

  6. I just got a chance to check out this week’s POTW podcast. What a cool surprise…thanks for including my review of To Hell You Ride!…and yes Josh, I really liked it! 😉
