Joined by special guest The Brent from ARG Presents we talk about the potential negative side of nostalgia from retro collection. We check out a blending of two classic Star Trek games, can you take a 1978 text adventure and give it the user interface of a game from the 90s? Yeah, turns out you can. Finally, it seems that SEGA has issued a cease and desist against the publishers of a Megadrive/Genesis based art book.
All this and our Question Of The Week. Which machine won out, Atari ST or the Amiga?
