Shownotes

In this episode, Tom takes Morgan through a history of the world’s strangest and worst video game consoles.

We previously discussed the well-received but sadly maligned Sega Dreamcast, and the brilliance of the Sega Megadrive, but what about the consoles that were just… nope.

As well as a few honourable mentions, we discuss at length three ‘classic’ consoles: the VHS-powered Action Max, the Nintendo Virtual Boy and the downright bonkers Coleco Telstar Arcade.

We also discover how Tom was about 20 years behind the curve with video games, and Morgan’s strange history with Eiffel 65.
