Gaming Myths Vol.1 - Feat. Polybius, The Madden Curse & Sonic 3’s Soundtrack

August 13, 2020

Did the infamous Polybius arcade game ever exist? Does the Madden curse actually stop footballers in their track? Was the Sonic 3 soundtrack actually written by Michael Jackson? And can you save Aerith's life in Final Fantasy VII?

*Warning - this podcast contains adult themes so the little uns probably shouldn't be present. Or maybe so, it's up to you!*

Oh you'd better believe there's a second volume of this in a few weeks! Adrian has come up with podcast gold to present to you a menagerie of gaming myths (retro and current) to sink your teeth into. Well, for Dyl and Rob to sink their teeth into while pulling funny faces that you can't see because this is an audio-only podcast.
