400 episodes, eh? You know when this thing started there was no such thing as an iPad. "Who would want a big phone that can't make calls?" they said. And there were right. The iPad fell quickly into obscurity in the summer of 2010, only to be superseded by the Atari HoloPlate, upon whose bioelectric porcelain membranes I now type these very words. This week's podcast is brought to you in association with HoloPlate, and features chat about the new Sega Forever program, news on Street Fighter 4: Championship Edition on iOS, and reviews of The Little Acre and the New Nintendo 2DS XL.

Sega Forever collection, which includes the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog, will be free to download on iOS and Android from Thursday Video game players, like music lovers and film buffs, are incurable nostalgics. And so are the games companies. Last year we had the cruelly hard-to-come-by Nintendo Mini-NES console, which took us back to the heady days of the mid-1980s, and earlier this week, Atari announced its decision to get back into the hardware business with a new machine. Now, Sega has announced its collection, a range of classic titles, which will be downloadable for free on mobile phones from Thursday. According to Sega, the growing collection will be carefully curated to include hugely recognisable cult gems as well as obvious hits. In the first batch are the original Sonic the Hedgehog from 1991, the legendary 1989 role-playing adventure Phantasy Star II, Sega Mega Drive launch title Altered Beast and two offbeat console titles from the famed Sega Technical Institute, Comix Zone and Kid Chameleon. These are all 16bit titles, but Sega says future additions will be plucked from throughout the company’s long history, from the Master System to the Dreamcast. This raises the scintillating possibility of playing everything from Wonder Boy in Monster Land to Crazy Taxi on your iPhone or Android.
it seems that Atari, is considering reentering the modern console market after more then 25 years. People are really excited for this console. But, Poli Games host Joseph, explains that with the monopoly and stranglehold that PlayStation and Microsoft have on the gaming industry, mixed with how expensive it is to create games, it might be best for Atari to sit this one out.
