– According to Price Charting, Jurassic Park is pretty affordable for the Genesis. It’s about $3.29 for the loose cart, and the game with a box and manual is about $40, which isn’t bad as far as older games go. Some of the later games in the franchise for the PS2 generation, oddly enough, are pricey, but most range from $3 to $15 for the loose carts.
– As mentioned on the show, there are way, way, wayyyy too many versions of Jurassic Park and its sequels floating around. For a full rundown, Wikipedia has you covered. There are likely more coming, as the sequel to Jurassic World is scheduled for 2018, as of November 2015. (Sorry if you’re reading this in the future, and surprised / disappointed.)
– We recorded this show on Nov. 11, the day after Fallout 4 came out. Per Wikipedia, it sold 1.2 million copies on Steam its first day out, and shipped 12 million units in its first 24 hours, for sales of $750 million. And according to PornHub, its views fell 10 percent the day of the release. Here is a link to a SFW site, Gamesbeat, about that.

…but we already covered Duck Tales…
My hot take is that Mega Man 2 has even better music… maybe.
