LIVE - 16/10/20 [Weekly VGM Radio & Podcast]

Episode 107,  Oct 17, 2020, 04:10 PM

Get sat comfortably, class, and prepare for this week's lesson - history! Whether it's Vikings, Ancient Egyptians, the Swinging Sixties or 15th Century Bohemia, this episode dips into a variety of historical video games.

Besides my own Top 5, and choices from my regulars, we hear all sorts of history-inspired fantasy titles and, of course, check in on all the regular features. Test yourself with a new round of the SFX Showdown, get up to date with three more Quickfire News segments and continue the confusion with the ever-mysterious VGM SongFight!
