Welcome to my show, Arcade Recall!

Watch as I, the DetRiotGirl, interview a new gaming legend every week until I either run out of contacts or until my show gets canceled! See all your favorite characters tell their story as it REALLY happened. Or, failing your favorite characters, then secondary characters who may or may not have known them. Or, failing that, well informed tertiary characters with some basic creative writing skills. Or maybe I'll just pull an In Touch Weekly and make stuff up as I go along.

Arcade Recall: promising you journalistic integrity at least 20% of the time!


This week on Arcade Recall, I interview the cast of the game that started it all... PONG!
