It's time... to battle! Marc Matt and John sit down for an entirely non civil discussion about the best game released in 1990. Nine games will be chosen as nominations, three games each.

With a new research paper released in February 2019 revealing new insights into the 'violence in video games' debate, Marc Matt and John wipe the smiles off their faces and have a serious discussion on the topic. Of course, that's not entirely true because we have far too many uneducated opinions and conjecture to remain completely straight down the line... But hey, we tried.
Marc, Matt and John get stuck into a bunch of reader feedback including more Cary's than you can throw a flaming soul at! Plus we talk about Google Stadia, Apple Arcade, MegaDrive Mini, and the new Black Knight Sword of Rage pinball! iTunes, Stitcher, and Google.
