From 1995, we’re playing Batman Forever by Probe Entertainment, and from 1999, unfortunately, we’re playing Superman 64 by Titus Software. Joining us, calling in from Krypton, is special guest Mattyboy!

– According to Price Charting, Superman 64 only costs $6.95 for just the cart, but the price swells to $38 for the cart, box and manual, and $41 for a new copy. Batman Forever has a similar swing, at $3 to $7 for the loose cart, up to the $26 to $30 range for new copies.
