Episode 409 – The Only Winning Move is Not to Spam

TRL episode 409 art

This week we celebrate a classic N64 wrestling game and despair at how cheap the new Street Fighter AI is. Speedrunners are blasting through classic RPG’s on twitch and we’ve got more tips for an obscure Neo Geo Pocket Color game from last week. There was a good joke about a Sega Saturn equivalent to the SNES Classic Mini, but we quickly realize we would buy it. We’ve got bootleg Sonic on the SNES and fake Sega CD covers in addition to pool and 90’s shopping malls in this episode of the Retro League.
