To celebrate the new movie Wonder Woman, Rob and Pernell focus on games with strong female protagonists. There is lots of jazz, and argument discussion about the Final Fantasy series. We also form the first emo-jug-band, which is way cooler than it sounds.

The show gets a few upgrades and add-ons this week with our focus on the TurboGrafx CD systems! Last week we looked at classic TurboGrafx 16 music, but this week is music in the classic CD audio format Redbook. It gets a little jazzy, a little funky, and then a little crazy with that Riot Zone track. I’m still not sure what’s going on there.
