TRL episode 390 thumbnail

The 2017 Retro Junk Box has begun and this week’s show has more discussion of action figures than usual. We picked two games of the week that the other person hadn’t played and we try to remember which controllers were made by Mad Catz. Everyone is wondering if replacing a label de-values a game and we’re still trying to figure out how many times Star Wars was re-released and which versions where unchanged from the original theatrical release.

This Week in Gaming History

June 5, 1995 – Street Fighter Zero (known in the states as Street Fighter Alpha: Warriors’ Dreams) was first released in Japanese arcades
