In our latest episode Kingy and Drisky don their tuxedos and sup on their vodka Martinis, shaken not stirred and take a look through March 40th Anniversary of James Bond video games. 

Not only that It is also the 70th Anniversary in April  since James Bond was first introduced to the world in the book Casino Royale and October last year was the 60th Anniversary of the Bond films, so there is plenty of reasons to celebrate Bond.

So sit back and enjoy as we take you through 40 years of great gaming history with Bond.
