Retrocast: Ep 29 - Turn Based Strategy

BAH! Yes, the OG cast is back as we open up the cast talking about our first impressions over Spiderman and Shadow of the Tomb Raider (0-17).

Nintendo finally had a direct covering how Switch Online is going to work, and revealed some more game releases on the horizon. How did they do (31-51)? Our theme is over retro turn based strategy games. Are some of these games too difficult to dive into, or are some of these more than meets the eye? Get those brains working for this one (51-end).
