Before we jump into nostalgia, we give the lowdown on the controversy surrounding the Gamer Gauntlet cruise. Jake interviewed both parties involved, so be sure to listen up for an in-depth look on what happened. We also discuss the mint copy of Super Mario Bros. on NES that sold for over $30,000. Imagine the amount of McNugget sauce you could get with that!

This week’s Stage of History welcomes a Game Boy classic that is soon getting a fresh coat of paint – Metroid II: Return of Samus! Learn why this supposed black sheep of the franchise actually holds a lot of weight in the making of fan favorite Super Metroid. Robert also welcomes handheld pinball title Revenge of the Gator in Obscura following up from his discussion of it in a previous episode. You also don’t want to miss out on our game giveaways, and our round of Random Select! Robert really shakes it this time around.
