Hop in your favorite (better make that "favourite") European rally car and "terra up de firma" in Power Drive Rally! We explore company histories and the development of the game, dig into the game modes, and marvel at the attention to detail. In the co-driver's seat we've got sound effects and music, reviews from around the world, and Betteridge's Law of Headlines.
 
As if that weren't enough, there's also feedback from Björn, Trevor, Roberth, Keith, Randal, Derek, Lee, Gummy Bear, doctorclu, TrekMD, and Arethius!
 
All that and more, including storytime, can be found in this long yet info-packed episode.
