Episode 420 – Spontaneous Top Gun Carts

TRL episode 420 art

This week there’s a crowd-funded project to let gamers create their own NES games and we determine which version of Galaga and Pac-Man will be put into Namco’s upcoming mini arcade games. We wonder if a new 16-bit Phantasy Star game is likely to be made and try to figure out what it costs to ship DVDs from Australia. We’re playing Dad games and living in a shopping mall in this episode of the Retro League.
