Episode 329 – The Tragic Tale of the Thrift Store

episode 329 art

Chewie of The Mana Pool joins us this week to battle some ogres tactically and to keep Final Fantasy’s records. We compare the free to play model to arcade games and also plan our trips to theme parks around drinking beer. We realize that the frame rate in Legend of Zelda may have been the inspiration behind the movie adaptation of 300. There’s lots more joy and rage to experience in this week’s episode of the Retro League!
