No one can match the passion of Intellivision CEO/President Tommy Tallarico. And he's joined us for this super-sized ARGcast Mini to prove just that with the most convincing take on why the Amico console is not just another Ouya.

Candice Shane comes back on also to ask the questions she's had racking her brain all week. And you won't want to miss Tommy's promise to Candice that will make you shed a tear.

Tommy also talks to us a bit about the leaked (and now revealed) Aladdin / Lion King collection that brings back retro classics in a fun package. Enjoy!
