Mortal Kombat: The Movie & MK Annihilation

7/30/2020
Why on earth do we do this to ourselves?! Ha ha! It's of course a pleasure every time! This week we tackle the Mortal Kombat Movies... Rob summons every ounce of strength to bring forward this critique of both movies with lots of trivia thrown in for good measure. One of the team is dragged along against his will (guess who) so it's up to the others to convince him they're both worth watching. Or not. Fancy discussing this podcast?

Our Top 25 SEGA Mega Drive/Genesis Games

7/23/2020
We expect nothing less than an almighty ton of vitriol from you and the entire retro gaming community! Our Amiga Top 25 went so well we thought we'd do it again with our favourite console and without Tim's "lovely and highly complex algorithm", it could have gone better... But kudos to Adrian for coming up with a (tweaked a bit by Dylan, so let's blame him) way of taking Ade's, Rob's, Tim's, Keith's, Faith's, Chris's and Dylan's top 10 MD/Genesis games and compiling this list. Absolutely...

Comic history, favourite comic-based games and favourite characters

7/16/2020
Forgive the long title, I really couldn't think of a way to shorten it, ha ha! We haven't put Chris off since last week so he's back to chat comic book heroes/villains and favourite comic-based video games with us. But not before Rob tells us a bit of comic book history and how they and video games are a match made in heaven. Comic book films even make an appearance! 80 minutes of comic-based ambrosia, whadda ya waiting for! Fancy discussing this podcast? Fancy suggesting a topic of...

Comic book chat with Chris McAuley (Marvel/Utomik)

7/9/2020
We thought it's about time we introduced you to our second-newest member (Retro Faith just pips him as the newest), Chris McAuley! Chris has done a lot of colouring work for Marvel and some of you may have bumped into him at a comic convention or two. His road to working for them and dev house Utomik is quite something! We've dragged him along to chat about his career, comics, games based on comics and how he came into our lives (and boy, does Adrian have a story to tell about that!) Next...

Sami Vanhatalo (Max Payne, Alan Wake) - Interview

7/2/2020
Adrian's guest this week is Sami Vanhatalo of Max Payne and Alan Wake fame! The Remedy co-founder chats about almost his entire back catalogue, what he really thinks about the Max Payne movie, whether there's scope for more games in the series and also updates us on Sociable Soccer - the spiritual successor to Sensible Soccer which he's working on with Sensible Software legend Jon Hare.

Double Dragon - The Movie

6/25/2020
The things we do for you lot! We've all had a lovely watch of the Double Dragon movie thanks to someone tweeting us at Christmas to do it (as part of our Secret Santa reveal, of course). Rob was gifted said movie so here he is after many weeks of painstaking research, withered and worn, to give his take on Billy & jimmy's excellent adventure. Spinach, anyone?

Resident Evil 3

6/18/2020
Stylishly late to the party as ever, here's our take on Resident Evil 3 old and new. Keith (who else) guides us through the PlayStation original and what he (re)makes of 2020's effort. And we try not to draw parallels between Jill's fight in Raccoon City and current events. Try. Fancy discussing this podcast? Fancy suggesting a topic of conversation?

Streets of Rage/Bare Knuckle Pt.2 (SOR3, SORemake and SOR4)

6/11/2020
Warning: This pod contains adult themes, adult language and not our usual lovely selves (mostly our lovely selves). It's the moment you've been waiting for! Indeed, Rob throws everything he's got into supporting Streets of Rage 3 much to Dylan's disgust (he'll blame it on the beer, we'd probably say Dyl was just being an ass, ha ha!) The gang turn to Adrian to guide the discussion about Remake, which none of them have played. Adrian's sound difficulties also provide some much needed comic...

Streets of Rage/Bare Knuckle Pt.1 (SOR and SOR2)

6/4/2020
The first of our Streets of Rage double bill features the seminal Streets of Rage and its bigger, badder sequel. You'll have to wait until next week for Dyl and Rob's bickering about SOR3, Ade's take on SOR Remake, and what Dyl makes of SOR4 (as no one else could be bothered to play it!) Just another brawler? Just another Final Fight clone? The Streets of Rage series brought a few more things to the table. The gang try to decipher it all under Keith's careful supervision (SOR1) and Dyl's...

Eric Chahi - Interview

5/28/2020
Adrian loves Another World. Hell, all of us (except Rob, grrrr) do! And he's shown that persistence pays off. After months of harassment - I mean, er, nice messages - the legendary Eric Chahi finally agreed to a chat. Certainly one for all you Amiga aficionados! Fancy discussing this podcast?

AA's Top 25 Amiga Games

5/21/2020
A few of you may have noticed that our Tim has been releasing vids counting down our favourite Amiga games. Spoiler alert: they're all here! We chat to Tim about how this came about, his crazy algorithm times our individual choices, and voila! An AA Top 25! We also get to know a little bit more about the man himself!

Eugene Jarvis - Interview

5/14/2020
Warning: this podcast contains strong language so probably best to listen when the little uns aren't about. Yes, THAT Eugene Jarvis. He's kindly answered an email Q&A before but this time he's agreed to take on our Adrian in one of our most delightful podcasts to date. From Defender to Robotron, Stargate to Smash TV, his work continues to entertain us to this very day. And his current outfit Raw Thrills goes from strength to strength in the industry that we love the most, everything he...

The Nintendo Wii

5/7/2020
So here is the last of our pre-coviddy lockdown backlog podcasts and it's quite apt that we discuss the console that really brought people together. Even your grandparents. Nintendo struck gold with their motion-driven console, the Wii. But why was it so popular? We (wii?) discuss our favourite Wii moments as well as some of the console's key titles. We also question whether the thing is really retro at all and Adrian puts up a solid (sort of) defence of the Wii-U. Fancy discussing this...

Weird Retro Gaming Merchandise

4/30/2020
Don't worry, this one (and next week's pod) were recorded in a much simpler time. A time when people could hang out in the same room and smell rotting flesh, courtesy of Keith's REmake 2 candle! Dylan invites the gang to discuss the weird and wacky merchandise available for us retro gaming lovers; Royal Mail's UK-dev gaming tribute and what weird AA merchandise could look like. And in the meantime we've teamed up with the amazing Seven Squared to bring you the official AA tee which you can...

Mike Dailly (GTA, Lemmings) - Interview

4/23/2020
We did it! We finally got him! The GTA and Lemmings creator has been a friend of ours on social media for many years but he's an incredibly busy man. Our Adrian, ever the sniper (see what I did there), got in and grabbed Mike for an hour-long chat. Lots of Lemmings, GTA and Amiga goodness among many, many other lovely retro gaming anecdotes.

Half-Life 2

4/16/2020
Another remote podcast just to keep things ticking over! Adrian gets the boys to chat about the wondrous Half-Life 2, a game so good it's won more awards than I have appendages! The game's development, critical acclaim, gameplay and plot line (complete with spoilers) all discussed in length. The gang also discuss Half-Life: Alyx and their hopes/wants for Half-Life 3 (yeah, we know we know). So grab your crowbar and jump on in! Fancy discussing this podcast?

David Doak (GoldenEye, Perfect Dark, Timesplitters) - Interview

4/9/2020
This week, Adrian has a lovely chat with Dr David Doak! David is mostly known for his work with the Rare team that created GoldenEye and Perfect Dark. He talks to Adrian about how this opportunity came about, converting GoldenEye from a rail shooter to a first-person shooter, rubbing shoulders with the stars and creating Timesplitters among many, many other fantastic retro gaming stories.

The Coviddy Bunker

4/2/2020
In bad taste? Probably. But we're here to keep your spirits up as much as you do ours! The AA boys are trapped in Dylan's underground bunker as the world falls prey to coronavirus, but what do they need to survive? We've basically rehashed the Desert Island Diskettes episode (sorry Andy) with a multiplayer, coviddy, Norman Reedus twist. Our first ever 'remote' podcast went OK. And you've got Dylan doing an awful Keith impression to boot. *The picture is from the excellent Jim'll Paint it...

Retro devices and Mega SG review

3/26/2020
Dylan has a good cathart and talks about a bunch of other alternative retro consoles from his beloved Retro Trio to the Retron 5 and handheld options. We try out and review the Mega SG in real time, and it’s revealed almost everyone was in a famous band in the early 2000’s. Don't believe me? Have a listen... Fancy discussing this podcast?

Mike Clarke (Psygnosis) - Interview

3/19/2020
Mike Clarke was Psygnosis' trusted sound guru. A lot of their hit titles like the WipEout and Lemmings games were given the gloss they deserved from this man. His stories about how the company worked are fascinating but the main flavour is brought by the Walker game that never was. Yes, there was a PS3 Walker game in the pipeline and Mike divulges all. He even let us use music that he created for the game. So, sit back and enjoy. Fancy discussing this podcast? Fancy suggesting a topic of...
