Episode 436 – Let’s Podcasting

TRL 436 episode art

This week we’re not insulting Prince Harry, and we warn against eating 13-year old honey mustard. Computers are randomly making Mario and Doom levels while we enjoy our relaxing RPG town music playlists. If the return of the mythical NES Classic Mini wasn’t good enough for you Japan is getting an anime-themed one and we’re also getting a tiny, strangely-colored Neo Geo that doesn’t come with a power cord. We’re putting on our wizard hats and swimming away from bigger fish in this episode of the Retro League.
