Episode 50 - Saint Petersburg

Episode 50 - Saint Petersburg

Last episode was all about newer games, so to balance the scales, we're taking it back to 2004 (and 2014) in our featured review when we tackle the tried & true classic, Saint Petersburg! We also pay our respects to John Henry in our trailer of Martin Wallace's 2008, Steel Driver. And just in time to help folks decide whether to back (or not) the Kickstarter, we take on Yokohama in the second trailer. Oh and did we mention that we welcome back Tony (on a quarterly basis) to the show? ;)
