Underworld The Eternal War – 60 Second Retro Gamer Episode 65

It seems that most developers just can’t get licensed tie-in games right. Such is the case with Underworld The Eternal War.

I should never be surprised at finding out that another popular licence has received a video game tie-in, but seriously – how does Wayne’s World …

Much like everyone else, we owned Super Mario Bros, however our version was on the same cart as Duck Hunt. Cut …

A podcast is also available at www.randomstoat.com or through iTunes. Blast know no limits when it comes to acquiring licences for well known franchises (see some of our other videos for more – and what’s worse is there’s a lot more we’ve yet to cover), so it should come as no surprise that in 2007 …
