Passion for Pixels: Ep 27 - Buying Games

On this episode we cover our vivid memories of buying games when brick and mortar stores were the only option and games didn't have a release date so you had no idea when a title would be in stock.

Also, Tyma reveals why purchasing a Japanese copy of Final Fantasy VIII was a bad idea, Danny tells of how he got ripped off purchasing his first ever game, Sonic the Hedgehog 3 for the Sega Genesis, and Stian is crowned winner of first time video game purchases with his tale of buying a bundle of sweet classics second hand. All this and more, in episode 27 of retro gaming podcast Passion for Pixels.
