Episode 382 – Megumi Diamonds

TRL episode 382 art

Disclaimer: Rob’s audio was a bit garbled in the recording of this episode. The podcast is generally intact, but we apologize in advance for this drop in quality. We start with the humble beginnings of a major computer manufacturer and remember Super Soakers from the 90’s. We coincidentally both picked paddle/dial-controlled games from the 80’s as our games of the week. There’s a lot of varied listener mail and a lot of Happy Meal talk in this episode of the Retro League.
