Episode 214 – X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse (1994)
This week in Your Parents Basement, we are oddly not fighting the title villain! Instead, we’re doing infiltration missions on Genosha for Professor X. From 1994, we’re playing X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse by Capcom for the SNES! We’re joined by Friend of the Show and mutant sympathizer Dale!

- Steve was calling in from the road on his way to moving to Houston, and because of his awful connection, he had to drop out about 20 minutes into the episode. He totally didn’t drop off because Cyclops is really AWESOME and the other hosts are mean-butts. This is either great or horrible news for you.
