Sega Vs. Nintendo. The video game landscape was dominated by this battle back in the early ‘90s. Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation is a new book by author Blake J. Harris that covers this “war” like never before. It's a fascinating read and enlightening chronicle of the inner workings of Genesis-era Sega of America and its struggle against not only Nintendo but their Japanese parent company. Greg and CJ had the opportunity to sit down over Skype and speak to Blake about the book and the 16-bit war - here it is for your listening enjoyment. Many thanks to Blake for taking the time to chat with us.

And the episode will hit your favorite podcatcher by the morning of June 11 tentatively, if all goes according to keikaku...(plan, it means plan).
