This week Nic and Seamus look back at the things in old games that young kids won’t understand, and then forward to what kids today might experience that one day will feel like a relic of the past they get to call their own.
Plus Google fights Australia and what is going on with all this? Is anyone in the right? Can anything really fix the media industry if it keeps doing what it’s always done?
All that and some hot tips on Lovecraft Country and why you should read before you watch, and on Microsoft Flight Simulator (the new one) and that feeling of simulating the things we genuinely cannot do anymore.
