Episode 440 – So Cool That It Must Be A Joke

TRL episode 440 art

This week we had an epic quest to search a dead mall in the hopes of finding an arcade or used game store. We wish the Game Boy Advance a happy birthday, while other people on the internet are ready to call the Atari VCS project a scam. We’ve found in-depth histories of both John Madden Football and Dungeons & Dragons on the same week that Shaq-Fu has returned. We’ve got retro surprise boxes and career info on the makers of Rocky Rodent in this episode of the Retro League.
