Episode 350 – No Way To Win

TRL episode 350 art

This week we’re finding it really hard to look on the bright side of life. There’s a lot that could bring us down, but the news isn’t all bad. Mega Man’s first 16-bit adventure is on the Virtual Console, GoldenEye 007’s multi-player mode has been re-created in HD, and Sesame Street characters are using martial arts to teach typing. If we can get through the convoluted timeline, we’ll find Another World and there’s lots of weird new kinds of lasers in the last SNES R-Type game.
