In episode 92 of the Retro Gaming Dads Podcast we talk about this week’s retro and retro-inspired news.

Could the UK’s Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) be poised to give the green light to Microsoft’s acquisition of Activision Blizzard? Plus the Japanese counterpart, the Japan Fair Trade Commission (JFTC), has approved the deal as they believe the deal isn’t likely to restrict competition.

Next up, a year after its release, Sonic Origins is set to get a BIG update. This new ‘Plus’ edition will not only add a new character into the mix with Amy Rose, but will also get 12 new 8-Bit Game Gear titles added to the roster. Plus, we finally get a physical release for Xbox, PlayStation and Switch.

Finally we talk about the recent The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom presentation that shows off not only some of the new game mechanics, but the new Special Edition Nintendo Switch OLED model.

Mentioned in Episode 92

  • UK’s CMA Concludes Microsoft Activision Acquisition Will Not Result in Less Competition
