As we all know, X-Men: Apocalypse takes place in the 1980s, just as the prior films took place in the '60s and '70s. They've done a great job of reflecting those eras in every movie thus far, but this is the coolest touch yet. 20th Century Fox has opened the website SpacePortArcade.com, and if you go there you'll find three retro-style video games. “Mutant Conquest,” “Mutant All-Stars Track & Field” and “Revenge of Hero X.” All are playable, but the third one is interesting because the lead character looks like a version of Cable, the futuristic mutant who happens to be the son of Scott "Cyclops" Summers and the eternal foe of Apocalypse. Coincidence? Maybe, maybe not. bit when I see gigantic gun and metal arm it's Cable who first springs to mind. Or any character from the '90s that Rob Liefeld created.
So check those out. The games are pretty crude as you might expect, but kind of fun if you dig the vintage stuff. X-Men: Apocalypse opens May 27th. Look for my review in the next few days.
