The History of CD-ROM Consoles, Part 2

• March 8th, 2017

This week Fred sits down with Ali of 42 Level One to discuss the more popular 32-bit generation of CD-ROM consoles.  What started as a disaster with the 3DO Interactive Player gave way to the big releases of the Sega Saturn and the Sony Playstation.  While the Saturn may seem dead in the water for the West, it was a strong presence in the East.  Finally everything wraps up with the beloved console that lacked sales: the Sega Dreamcast.

U Didn’t Play Next

• March 1st, 2017

The Wii U was Nintendo's follow-up to the widely successful Wii, but amidst an overall lack of interest to gamers it was met with mostly resistance.  The slogan "How U Will Play Next" was far from accurate and thanks to a lack of consumer understading of what the console on top of the scruitiny leveled against the library it was never much of a success.  Still, Fred has fond memories and he takes you through the journey of the Wii U from announcement to today.
