I find him... a bit much. Close friendship is great but it gets nauseating with him. Also it doesn't feel like he's had a lot of development, unlike Jake who is still kooky but no longer unbearably so.

Has anyone else watched High Score on Netflix? I finished it last night. It features a few things I knew about (such as the story of ET, and Miyamoto telling the StarFox devs "this space shooter would be more fun with woodland creatures in it") but a lot that I didn't, and features a good bit of representation from women, people of colour, and LGBT+ communities. I actually first heard about it from my sister excitedly texting about how Roberta Williams came on screen and she recognised her before they'd introduced her - we played a LOT of King's Quest in our house as kids.

Yeah I watched them - the Doom one was particularly good seeing how Doom had links to Mario 3. The StreetFighter and Sonic episodes were cool, but also mildly depressing. Might just be me, but they felt more about the people than about the games, which I guess is interesting but I'd rather they dived more into what made the game great, rather than who.

I've binged all five series of Line of Duty, an excellent bent cop drama on IPlayer and Netflix. Highly recommended.

Yeah, I'd agree with that - I wonder if it's because talking about the games more would make it more of a niche thing, rather than relatable to a wider audience?

In the Sega one I just kept thinking "it's so funny they went from being the underdog to a huge competitor in the 90s, and then it all just changed so rapidly at the turn of the century".

Yeah, what's funny is that SEGA was really only ahead for a couple of years, if that. 1992-1994 - didn't the SNES end up outselling the Mega Drive? Saturn flopped and Dreamcast did well for the 18 months it was around, but was too little too late. From "toppling" Nintendo, to effectively bankrupt in the space of 6 years. Now that's a series that needs to be made - an in depth look at the fall from grace that saw SEGA leave the hardware industry.

The SNES outsold the Mega Drive by about 20m in the end, but the MD did have better success in Europe & RotW but guess back then those were small markets unlike now.

SEGA has a interesting history and as a big fan I do find it funny lot blame Sony for the downfall with the PS2 yet so much went wrong before that.
