Welcome to another episode of the RetroPod, where this week we conclude the SegaGuys “Console Wars” trilogy by sitting down with the author of the brilliant book and the brains behind the CBS documentary, Blake J. Harris.

In pack plenty into this hour long chat as we discuss Blake’s gaming roots, his influences (and challenges) while researching and writing the book, delve into the artwork behind the documentary, and get the lowdown on how the Sega (good guy) vs Nintendo (bad guy) narrative came to be.

Welcome to another episode of The SegaGuys RetroPod. In this show James (@TheSegaHolic) talks through his 15 top Mega Drive/Genesis games with Dan (@Swooper_D).

The backstory to this show is that Dan sent James a Mega Drive as a gift six months ago and, after acquiring an Ever Drive cartridge, James has been playing through the library and has chosen these 15 games as the ones he’d be happy to have on his shelf if it were all he could own.

What do you think of the list? Were you screaming out at your Alexa or tearing your headphones out in disgust? What games would you change?

Let us know in the comments or on Twitter @SegaGuys.
