Jason and Mickey return with another episode of the Retro Network Podcast, talking video game memories through the years. First, Jason tells about his recent experience at the local race track which leads into some old NASCAR memories. Next, our Recurrent Events (@recurrentevents) segment includes the new Trapper Keeper game, “I Am Patrick Swayze” documentary, RIP Harley Race, Star Wars home arcade game, Top Gun toyline, and this week’s anniversaries in movies. Then in our main topic, we share our video game memories including our first consoles in the ’80s, portable gaming, and our next gen consoles in the 90s. Plenty of Nintendo versus Sega talk too! Finally, don’t miss our recap of recent content on TheRetroNetwork.com website.
