First off, the audio levels still aren't quite right. Trying to dial this back in. Everything was great until George nuked his goddamn computer like an idiot. Anyway, this week we talk about Klute, podracing, WandaVision, and some sort of new Switch model, if you're the kinda freak who cares about that. This week's Retro Corner concerns Burning Force, a game that I have been assured is real, and Perfect Dark, which is a good game if you play it on a machine that doesn't run at single-digit framerates. George did not do that. Theme song by David Cassel Outro music: "Perfect Day" by Lou Reed
