Episode 379 – The Creative Guys

TRL episode 379 art

This week we might have found someone with an idea worse than trying to open up a new arcade and single-handedly make games for it. There’s a surprising amount of Neo Geo games on the Switch, and it is no longer surprising that Doom will run on every device ever made. We would have had a debate over the GameCube being retro, but everyone seems to be in agreement. Our listeners have some great light gun games, their favorite mountains, and some great cross-genre hybrid games in this episode of the Retro League.
