TRL episode 421 art

This week we offer our two cents regarding the latest Star Wars film and the recent YouTube money issues. Resident Evil’s first sequel just turned 20 and we’re looking forward to new Genesis/Mega Drive games. We’ve found one of the most expensive Game Boy carts on eBay and cybernetic volleyball is back on the Neo Geo. We’re reading floppy disks and keeping the toy factory running in this episode of the Retro League.
