Episode 405 – Atari Box Hype


TRL episode 405 art

This week we find out that the original Virtual Console’s days are numbered. We recall some of the worst movies from MST3k and some of the best music on the SNES. The Atari name-holder has released some info about its new console and we discuss if it will be worth the price. This will be the last week our listeners get to decide which 1992 video game is the greatest, and you can fund a Resident Evil board game in this episode of the Retro League.
