Playing every North American 7800 release wasn’t enough for us. So we talk about how Atari might have changed the fate of the 7800. We play some homebrew 7800 titles, then we compare and contrast the 7800 games that also appeared on the Famicom, NES, and Sega Master System.
Chris, Tatton, Becky and Steve sit down and discuss all 57 North American releases for the Atari 7800, the choice of the experts. Our palms still hurt from the ProLine joysticks.
