Episode 424 – Hardcore Game Art Collector

TRL episode 424 art

This week Nintendo is trying to use old games to entice us to buy their newest systems. We won’t be tempted because we’re following the twisted road of Tetris publishing rights. Sega has the answer for your power adapter needs, while the Atari name-owners continue their desperate grab for cash. We may be seeing the end of physical media for music, but we do have a new Sonic the Hedgehog boardgame in this episode of the Retro League.
