This week on The Retro League we journey back to 1984 to look at the launch of the original Macintosh computer with its impressive 128k of memory. Seriously, that was a lot back then. We also talk about Sega consoles turned into anime characters, Star Wars games, 32X games that are possibly inferior to their Super Nintendo counterparts, FMV gaming, Mario glitches, the worst movies of the 90s, and 80s dancers having heated arguments with robots.
