TRL episode 408 art

Everybody’s a console maker these days. This week we’re continuing to weigh the good and bad of the Sega Genesis Flashback HD and we count the number of Frogger games. We picked one game of the week that’s very hard and one game of the week that’s pretty easy. We’re saying goodbye to youtubers and eating social justice burgers in this episode of the Retro League.
