No 76 - Mario Kart 64 - This time it’s personal

8/11/2018
More
Rob’s had a bee in his bonnet ever since Adrian pooh poohed Mario Kart 64 back in our Diddy Kong Racing pod, so here is his chance to state the case for MK64 and sway the Arcade Attack jury in his favour. Did he succeed? Or did we just all round on him a bit? Listen to find out… Fancy discussing this podcast? Fancy suggesting a topic of conversation?

No 75 - Waluigi - Criminal, or Criminally Underused?

8/4/2018
More
Firstly, let us apologise for the sound quality for the first 18 mins or so. It seems, as hobbyists, we are often thwarted by loose amp connections, erratic device drivers and the like! Anyway, in this week’s podcast Adrian brings to the AA table a character who divides opinion (to say the least). Is Waluigi one of the greatest most underused characters in all of video gaming, or just the Luigi version of Wario? What Adrian has to say may surprise you… Fancy discussing this podcast? Fancy...

No 74 - Sunset Riders - Where is the love?

7/28/2018
More
There’s a certain cowboy franchise that’s about to drop a massive sequel and it’s got Dylan thinking about his favourite Western-a-like, Sunset Riders. Why no reboot mooted? Is it because Konami is holding the IP hostage? He’s got some other theories and only a few are not ludicrous. Join the gang on a journey as they explore the game’s arcade origins, 16-bit conversions and try to fathom why there appears to be not much love for this once revered game. And we only mention Red Dead...

No 72 - What is Chiptune? Feat. 8 Bit Weapon Review

7/14/2018
More
Has Dylan got a handle on what Chiptune is? Er, almost. Join him as he tries to convince Adrian and Rob it’s a great thing whilst downing a few too many tinnies.

No 67 - Robocop vs Terminator

6/9/2018
More
Not just a glorious Genesis/Mega Drive game, Rob talks us through its comic beginnings (the media format, not hilarity) to said SEGA 16-bit version and I suppose we’d better talk about the (ugh) SNES version… Will someone please give us a reboot!!

No 66 - Diddy Kong Racing!

6/2/2018
More
Its place in kart racing folklore needs no recapping. Well, maybe a little. Adrian tells us how he had to choose a kart racer for his newly purchased N64 and thankfully went for Diddy Kong over a certain other kart racer which shall not be named. Rob thinks he should have chosen the other. Let’s hope this ends well… Fancy discussing this podcast? Fancy suggesting a topic of conversation?

No 64 - McDonald’s Games - But why??

5/19/2018
More
But why, indeed. McDonald’s games ranged from the pretty decent to the downright creepy. Rob tells us how this all started, from its early 8-bit Nintendo days to its more than acceptable 16-bit outings. And what’s that? There’s a pretty decent app out there where you can start your own franchise? We’re in! Just please don’t supersize us. Fancy discussing this podcast? Fancy suggesting a topic of conversation?
