The Retro Game Review - November 2013

Looking for the latest retro news? Then you’ve come to the right place, as The Retro Game Review looks at all of the last month’s retro gaming happenings - including the latest ports and remakes, hardware and accessories, homebrew retro releases, fan translations, and much more.

This month I take a look at a conflict between SNK and Tommo, some rip-roaring retro tinged tunes, and more homebrew than you can shake a well sized stick at.

This episode even has chapter breaks, so you can watch just the parts you want - although you’ll need to view it on YouTube to take advantage of this truly groundbreaking feature.

As always, thanks for watching!
