    Retronauts Episode 390: Tales of Monkey Island

    Retronauts Episode 390: Tales of Monkey Island

    Nearly a decade after the last entry, Telltale Games launched Tales of Monkey Island, an episodic take on the classic adventure series—and the first installment in nearly 20 years with input from creator Ron Gilbert. And while it suffers from some of the drawbacks of Telltale's format, this five-chapter adventure game swerves away from the expected formula to deliver some truly memorable Monkey Island moments. On this episode, join Bob Mackey and Nina Matsumoto as they explore the final stop on our tour of the Monkey Island series.
    And be sure to pre-order Nina's newest graphic novel, Sparks: Future Purrfect!

Awesome Podcast

Each and every episode of retronauts is a treat to listen to. For someone who started gaming on the Famicom, hearing about the history and development of these classic games brings a tear to my eye. Highly recommended for anyone who grew up with video games!
