Episode 359 – The First In-Game Sighting of the Mystical Mr. Dog

TRL episode 359 art

This week we dive into teenage escapism and find that the 1966 Batman TV series is making a comeback. We ponder the future of shopping malls and note the parallel declines of malls and arcades. We’ve got more scumbag eBay sellers to poke fun at and we’re morphing into magic dogs to fight samurai ghost-zombie-skeletons in this episode of the Retro League.
