We have a special guest this week as Tony from OzRetrocomp returns to chat about retro media bought about by an awesome basement video collection which has been designed to replicate video stores of the 1980/90s. We take a look at a recreation of a very old arcade game called Computer Space, a game you can play via emulation if you wish. Finally, was the original PlayStation the top of the class for playing CDs? Some claim its audio output is up there with tech costing much more.

All this and more with our Community Question Of The Week.
