For the first time ever we have 4 presenters! A guest from The Retro Hour pops in for a chat this week. Join us for about an hour of chat about old computers. The MSX is back for a 3rd round! Classic hardware returns but it's not another Mini it's a full blown system. Can't wait! We talk about gaming accessibility as 8BitDo show off their controller for gamers with limited mobility (we salute you 8BitDo). Finally, would you switch to a modern recreation of your old hardware in order to preserve it?
A small favour, if you enjoy this show please like and share it on Twitter, Facebook etc. Shout about it in your local computer club if you could. Thanks!
