What Is Retro? (baby don’t hurt me) - This Week In Retro 132

15th July 2023 1 hr 11 min

Would you like to stay at an 80s style inspired B&B complete with working arcade full of games to play.....I think most would! Did you know the Atari ST really was amazing as part of MIDI network? A new video shows just how good it was/is. Finally, a simple question sparked a discussion about Halo. Is it retro yet?

All this and your answers to the Community Question Of The Week.

Don't forget that we are taking a two week break for various reasons but we will be back with more retro chat to brighten your Saturday mornings. See you soon.

The new issue of Pixel Addict is just about to hit the shops (might take a few weeks to get to Australia, sorry Chris) but you can order your copy direct from where you can also set up a subscription. Relive those days where you used to sit by the front door waiting for the next issue of Amstrad Action, Zzap or Amiga Format to be delivered.

By the way, did you spot the easter egg in this week's thumbnail? :)
