Nintendo Times Radio 154: A Cube And A Box Walk Into A Bar…

It’s episodes like this one that I realize I’m really old. It’s hard to believe that the GameCube and Xbox released 20 years ago this month. We have fond memories of both consoles so we chat about them in depth during our Feature Presentation. Lots more in this episode as well, so thanks for taking the time to listen!
