It happened! Neil is over the moon. MicroProse has announced a number of new B17 Flying Fortress games. Have you ever wanted to use two C64 computers as an accordion? Of course you have, who hasn't? It has finally been made real....and its fantastic! Finally, did you think the Outrun car was a real model from Ferrari? Turns out it is isn't but it is, too much to explain here so watch Chris in his element as he talks us through it.

We have a special guest this week, Ross (AKA Ross Of The Robots).
