RetroCollect FM - Retro Gaming Podcast - Issue 17: 1997 - A Year In Review

PodcastArtwork-1997

1997 was a year that will be remembered for many reasons - The Labour Party won the UK general election for the first time in 18 years, the UK wins Eurovision for the first time since 1981, JK Rowling's Harry Potter was published and cinema goers were treated not only to the re-release of the original Star Wars series; but also the record-breaking movie Titanic. Perhaps the biggest news event of the year though, was the death of Princess Diana.

It wasn't all about movies, politics and national mourning though - 1997 was an amazing year for gaming: the N64 was finally released in Europe, Suikoden and Final Fantasy 7 entertained PlayStation owners, while Sega Saturn gamers got Manx TT and PC gaming saw the release of Carmageddon, MDK and Dark Forces. Join regular RetroCollect FM hosts Chris, Tom and Katsu as they reminisce about the good, the bad and the ugly in gaming in the year of 1997.

A true connoisseur of failed and obscure console hardware, if Tom isn't extolling the virtues of the Jaguar CD's texture smoothing abilities or the Dreamcast's vast array of useless peripherals he's usually on Twitter asking where all the Super A'Can games are.
