Episode 445 – Ban All Coin-Operated Amusement Devices

TRL episode 445 art

This week we have evidence that the mythical NES Classic Mini is actually a real product that consumers could buy and not just a scam perpetrated by eBay resellers. We might have to expose our stomachs to cheap burgers in order to get some Mario toys but we were completely perplexed for several minutes by the face of Trog. We’ve got a Sega CD adaptation of a comic book super hero and a staple of the SNES on this episode of the Retro League.
