Notes for this Podcast

Liam is back this week, hosting alongside myself and Dave. We talk about a whole bunch of things!

Dave informs us that the production of new MegaDrive consoles will have a limited run exclusively in Brazil, we talk about homebrew games and hobbyist game development, then we have a little rant about… well, I wont give it all away, just have a listen.

Congrats also to @ninja_steve (our only listener), who, as predicted, correctly stated the source of our poorly remembered game quote! We have another quote in this episode. Can you guess where it came from?

SEGA MegaDrive/Genesis lives again (in Brazil)!
