Episode 451 – High Fantasy and Crypto-Football

TRL episode 451 art

This week some single player NES games have been upgraded to multi-player, but if you played as Oddjob in GoldenEye 007 then the developer of the game would disapprove. Classic game music has been retooled to put you to sleep and we’re putting buzzwords next to fantasy sports. We’ve got fantasy films from the 80’s, Mega Man from the 90’s, and a Pac-Man collection from the 00’s in this episode of the Retro League.
