In this episode, we kick off with some discussion of the news that’s been happening of late — though we deliberately steer clear of the various “not-E3” events that have been going on during the Summer of Plague and Protests, as we’re planning a “Happenings” episode towards the end of the month when that’s all over and done with.

Turns out there’s still plenty to talk about, including a few PS5 nuggets that caught our attention, a remake of a classic Sega property and the welcome sighting of some awesome PC indie games coming to Switch.

After that, we take the time for our usual “what we’ve been playing” discussion, and Chris has a good old (perfectly understandable and well-justified) rant about free-to-play and Phantasy Star Online 2. As soon as we start talking about Assault Android Cactus and 51 Worldwide Gameshe feels a bit better, though.

Finally, our main topic for this episode is the recent release of the PC Engine CoreGrafx Mini. Chris, being a veteran of the platform, takes me through some of his all-time favourites, and I share some of the things that have caught my attention in my explorations so far.

Hope you enjoy!
