The Stage of History has us cover SNK classics Athena and The King of Fighters '98. Robert rounds us out with Time Soldiers in Obscura. Don't forget to nab our game code giveaways for Perception and Orange Moon. The end of the show also has us cover the passing of comics legend Stan Lee as well as get into an introspective conversation on nostalgia as a whole.

Got a question, comment, or suggestion for the show? Email us or send a tweet! Also, join our Discord room to chat all things retro gaming!
