    Episode 37: Is the New PlayStation 5 Really Worse and is Game Boy Heading to the Switch?

    Episode 37 is a slight change in our planned schedule, Barry and Anthony take a look at some of the retro, and not so retro, gaming news. Firstly we start with a fan’s unique mod that brings Mario Kart 8 tracks into Microsoft’s Flight Simulator. We then take a look at how you can create your own custom Sega Saturn mini console, discuss China’s new restrictions aimed at limiting children’s online playtime, and discuss the latest rumours regarding Game Boy games heading to the Switch’s online service. Finally, we will ask whether or not the PlayStation 5 exclusive Ratchet and Clank: Rift Apart could be done on previous generation consoles? Is the latest revision of the PlayStation 5 really a downgrade over the existing model? Plus Halo Infinite gets a release date and are scalpers at it again?

Something to listen to on a way to work

I keep listening to those guys on a way to work, fun, snappy with a dose of nostalgia.

Funny show about gaming

If you like gaming podcasts with a retro spin, this might be for you!

It’s just 3 blokes chatting about games, that almost trope of podcasts now!

Highly recommend and clearly Phil is the best one!
