Let's get right to it! James kicks-off New Business this week with a look at the big new JRPG taking Switch by storm: Shining Resonance Refrain! He spends roughly 10 minutes saying, "Well, it's fine..." It sure is a Sega JRPG; remember when this series was a Fire Emblem competitor? Guillaume has finished off Mario + Rabids and moved onto The Next Penelope. The game might resemble F-Zero, but it's without hideous characters and adds more shooter gameplay. Greg has a look at Sonic Mania Plus, the add-on to last year's Sonic Mania. For the first time in over a decade, new came to a well-liked 2D Sonic game, now without cart docking. Jon closes out New Business with a look at Mega Man Legacy Collection 1. If you haven't seen Mega Man 1 in a while, you might not realize how much of a bastard that game is. Come for the classic games, stay for Legacy Collection 1's awesome museum.
After the break, we take on a trio of listener mail. This week we send games into the past, decompose entertainment industry jargon, and test market portable Virtual Console devices. You can try to convince gamers of the 1980s that Cybermorph is the future of games by sending us an email.
