The Rabblecast

On this episode we talk about the passing of the Bright Knight, Adam West(aged 88). It's no surprise to anyone that we are big Batman fans. Comics, movies, cartoons, video games... It's safe to say we've indulged in our love of the Dark Knight over the years. But in this case, we talk about the impact made by the Batman '66 version of the show and how it influenced and even saved the comic book itself from being canceled at one point.

Hernandez brings up sharing 80's cartoons with his son and focuses on a particular Voice Over talent in, Frank Welker. Mr. Welker is the voice of Fred Jones from Scooby-Doo, Megatron from Transformers G1, Dr. Claw from Inspector Gadget and many, many more. His broad spectrum of character voices, noises and other vocal effects that have appeared over the last 40 years in motion pictures, have vaulted him to number one on the "All Time Top 100 Stars at the Box office" list. The revenue of films he has participated in have generated over 12 billion dollars worldwide. His work in over 90 films has put him ahead of Eddie Murphy, Harrison Ford, Tom Hanks and Samuel L. Jackson.

A little over a year and half ago a Kickstarter campaign from Gun Media was launched for Friday the 13th The Video Game. What originally began as a game paying homage to the film franchise quickly became a full blown project with the name and license. Originally scheduled for an October 2016 launch, the game was finally released around Memorial Day weekend of 2017. From what we can see online and what we can read as far as game play reviews, the game does a good job of giving you the full Camp Crystal Lake experience.

However, glitches, server issues, and more have plagued the launch of this long awaited title. We here at The Rabblecast have yet to play an actual session. But that doesn't deter us. We still want our chance to survive a night running from the legendary horror icon. Or, play as Jason Vorhees himself and stalk the group of counselors. Have you played Friday the 13th The Video Game? What was your experience?
