Episode 380 – Quad Speed CD Drive

TRL episode 380 art

This week we celebrate the 20 year anniversary of a game we hear about often, but don’t know that much about. We recall games that malfunctioned as soon as we got them and we find new retro game figures and beads that you could buy. We’re judging fighting games based on how big their character select screen is and completely ignoring the latest Mario game in this episode of the Retro League.
