    YES! Great show, and a welcome Christmas present! I loved the SEGA arcade games. Outrun and Hang On were quick ways to go through quarters. Afterburner was my game! I had a need for speed! Moonwalker was a great game!
    That SEGA “Genesis does what Ninten – DON’T”! commercial really jarred some memories loose.

    Mayim Bialik as an Ewok!

    1. Thanks, Dave. We appreciate you listening and sticking with us. We’ll have to plan an upcoming show with you again, maybe the TurboGrafx 16 episode?
