New MegaDrive, homebrew gaming and localisation headaches
This week, I'm joined by Dave and Liam to discuss the production of new MegaDrive consoles in Brazil, homebrew games and hardware, game localisation headaches and much more!
Notes for this Podcast
Liam is back this week, hosting alongside myself and Dave. We talk about a whole bunch of things!
