Meanwhile... Back in the 80's... The Legend of Zelda

This week we take trip down memory lane and talk about all we remember about that little rascal, Link, and his adventures to save a princess. We also veer off and can't help compare the Zelda series of games to another 8-bit, mustachioed hero.

What are some of your best Zelda memories?

Meanwhile... Back in the 80's... Getting New Games

Getting a new video games is the best, especially in the 80's. This episode we talk about what it was like back when we couldn't drive ourselves to Electronics Boutique or KB toys to nab a new game or a pre-order. We also gab about getting a game we already had as birthday gift or unwrapping a Christmas present early and beating it before Christmas morning. All that and so much more.
