Episode 398 – Phoned In

TRL episode 398 art

This week we pretend to be Agent 007 and get spooked by supernatural books. Our retro junk box has almost finished it’s tour but another long-term project is about to start and you can participate on our forums. Unlike some companies, Hyperkin is actually preparing to release a new product that will let you play SNES games conveniently. We’re celebrating the birthday of the Neo Geo Pocket Color and uncovering mines in this episode of the Retro League.
