Episode 386 – Computer Games: Evolved

TRL episode 386 art

This week we are joined again by The NoSwearGamer to talk about some classic MS-DOS computer games and the misleading title of a 2017 video game hall of fame inductee. You can help crowdfund a new ZX Spectrum machine and a new NES game with dragons. We venture into dust-filled desktops and the ancient plans Namco had for the Sega Saturn in this episode of the Retro League.
