In this episode of This Week In Retro we chat about retro computer magazines old and new, take a good look at a new joystick for our old machines, ask if game addiction was a problem back in the day, wonder at why you would want to browse the web on a Game Boy and welcome the Duke back to the Amiga. All that and some of the responses to last week's community question of the week.
