Ep. 13: What if Nessie is a Dinosaur Ghost?

August 5, 2022

The Sega Mania crew - Alex, Rob, Simon and Sam - bring more maniacal Sega-fuelled fun straight into your ears. This episode, we tried very hard to follow overlord Tim's decree to not talk about poopies and peepees, so you'll have to hear how well we did there. 

Rankings continue to dominate our lives as we run the collective rule over the second batch of games from Issue 4 of the magazine, which covered 1993. Shinobi III, Cool Spot, Mortal Kombat, Streets of Rage II, Micro Machines, and WWF Royal Rumble meet their fate in the list o' doom. 

Finally, we have a listener email salvaged from the spam folder that serves up some quick-fire (ish) questions about music, google searches, bucket lists and more! Oh, and don't forget to buy the magazine at
