The Video Game Newsroom Time Machine is a weekly retro gaming podcast in which we travel back in time to see what was making headlines 40, 30, and 20 years ago in the arcade, video game, and computer gaming business and interview industry veterans. 

We try to put those events into historical context to understand how the industry of today came to be. 

It's fun and educational! (in case you need to justify listening to it to a significant other)

Super FX brings 3D to the SNES
NeoGeo breaks the 100 meg barrier
The 1200 brings the Amiga into the modern age

These stories and many more on this episode of the VGNRTM

This episode we will look back at the biggest stories in and around the video game industry in November 1992.
As always, we'll mostly be using magazine cover dates, and those are of course always a bit behind the actual events.
