TRL episode 413 art

This week we tackle rumors of an upcoming Mario Bros motion picture and we discuss some misguided ideas on how to deal with the menace of loot boxes in video games. Coleco may have new tabletop games for sale soon, or they may just be trying to program a blog. Our listeners recall angrily giving up and our games of the week feature a portable entry from one of our favorite NES action series and an indie game based on glitches and weird dreams in this episode of the Retro League.
