Retrocore #73 We’re Back!

After eight long months Retrocore Podcast returns. This episode we sat down to catch up and talk about retro and modern gaming. E3 happened during our absence so we quickly shared our thoughts on the new consoles and games coming out. Of course we sprinkled in some retro talk as that is the main focus of the show. Next show everything should return to normal and Colin will be back as well. Sorry for being away for so long and we hope you enjoy the show.
