This week on The Fix, Donald Bell packs his Mr. Fusion home energy reactor with banana peels and pop cans, gets into his flying Delorean, and heads back in time for some retro gaming goodness, Megabit style.

Then, over in the PC gaming side of things, I show you three ways to increase your desktop's gaming performance. If your system's getting a bit long in the tooth, you'll definitely want to stick around for this one.

And finally, if you've ever experienced the crippling frustration of using virtual controls on a touchscreen, I feel for you. Thankfully, you don't have to tolerate it. Sharon Profis (formerly "Vaknin") has some cool and useful ways to make your mobile gaming experience way more fun.

Lastly, a huge shout-out to Pacific Pinball Museum in Alameda, CA who allowed Donald and I to film some fun segments and play lots of pinball.
