This is your weekly Retro Computing round-up and this week we look at the three new consoles from Atari, might they tempt you to dip into their back catalogue of games? How do you find a retro destination in your area? There is now a website which will show you what is where: retro shops, museums, clubs and even podcast and magazines. We also look at the big box release of Return To Monkey Island. Are we going to buy it? Is it good value? Does the box look awesome?
All this as well as the usual catch up and the Community Question Of The Week.
