Video Game Ad of the Day: Batman Forever

To try and differentiate Batman Forever from the other licensed dreck they were churning out, Acclaim Entertainment tried to class the game up by using digitised graphics of actors dressed up as Batman and Robin. Unfortunately, the underlying game is nearly impossible to control – I think it took me a week to figure out how to execute some of the most basic moves back in the day.


Video Game Ad of the Day: Armorines: Project S.W.A.R.M.

You got Starship Troopers in my Turok, you derivative bastards.

Armorines: Project S.W.A.R.M. was based on the Armorines comic created by Valiant before Acclaim bought them out. While the original series focused on a crack team of government operatives, the video game was basically a cash-in on the cult-classic film adaptation of Starship Troopers. The game was poorly received due to technical shortcomings.
