Episode 417 – Ninjas Always Flip Out

TRL episode 417 art

This week we’re stretching our childhood allowance out as much as possible, and we’ve got a couple of games called Ninja Gaiden that aren’t as good as the Ninja Gaiden we remember. We play a round of Burger King Star Wars Piece of Paper Size Guessing while someone in our government is playing around on Wikipedia. We’ve got K-Mart Muzak and GameCenter CX DVD’s in this episode of the Retro League.
