In this episode, we air the second and final portion of our interview with Curt Vendel. During the interview, Curt discusses his involvement in the development of the Atari Flashback 2 hardware, atarimuseum.com, and the Atari Historical Society.

In our "rant" segment we discuss the future of electronic video game distribution. We focus on the fact that unlike their PC counterpart, console game electronic distribution will be controlled solely by the console makers (Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo).

During our "Retro Respect" segment, we take a look back at the NEC TurboGrafix-16. We emphasize on the key role that Hudson Soft played in the development of both the hardware and games for the platform. We also discuss the fact that the TurboGrafx-16 will be available on the Nintendo Revolution virtual console.

Our "Gaming Moments" this episode include a look at Elder Scrolls 4 Oblivion (360), Far Cry Instincts Predator (360), Daxter (PSP), and Kingdom Hearts II (PS2).

In our look at the news we discuss that some organizations are stating that, "Games make kids fat, nympho chain-smoking alcoholics", a decrease in sales of M-rated games to underage kids, Nintendo's annual profit being the largest since 2001, and much more.
