No 93 - What is Retro Gaming? And will the bubble burst?

12/1/2018
More
It's the two-year anniversary of the podcast and also the four-year anniversary of the site so we thought we'd get back to shouting things at each other.

No 89 - Street Fighter - The Movie

11/10/2018
More
It's about time we had a chat about films based on our favourite video games. So, erm, we've chosen to start with Street Fighter (thanks to Rob).

No 88 - Atari Jag CD and Sega (Mega) CD Further Thoughts

11/3/2018
More
Dylan and Adrian's meandering chat about the Atari Jaguar CD and Sega (Mega) CD peripherals they picked up a few months ago went so well they decided to give us an update! Rob and Keith joined this time round to mainly look confused. To give you a taste of what's to come, Adrian's had time shuffling around jumbled up music videos whilst Dylan still doesn't know what to make of Sonic CD... Fancy discussing this podcast?

No 87 - Golden Axe

10/27/2018
More
Our "Halloween special" isn't really that spooky. Although, Rob's intro may give you the shivers. He's here this week to talk us through a franchise that all of us have had experience with and confirms, as we've all suspected, that it pioneered a lot of game mechanics prevalent in today's gaming.

No 86 - IK+ - A Simple Masterpiece

10/21/2018
More
How does a game contained in only one screen capture the hearts and minds of gamers? Let Adrian tell the tale of IK+, a three player (yes, three), one-screen based, karate game created by the legendary Archer Maclean... Fancy discussing this podcast?

No 85 - What Makes the Perfect Platformer?

10/13/2018
More
Errr, the short answer is, we have no idea! But have a great time pretending to know what we're talking about! In one of our laziest podcasts ever, Dylan attempts to put some structure into this wafflefest because he didn't do his homework. Naughty naughty. Fancy discussing this podcast?

No 84 - Dave Perry (GamesMaster/Games World) - Interview

10/6/2018
More
This is big for us. Dave Perry literally commentated our video gaming childhood and he's kindly stopped by to answer our many, many questions. His time at GamesMaster and Games World has been well documented but to hear these stories directly from him is both enlightening and at times, saddening.

No 83 - Clock Tower (PS1)

9/29/2018
More
Clock Tower is probably the scariest game you've never played. Why? Because it's damn expensive that's why! Through the wonders of emulation Keith was able to bask in the glow of this fabled game, and now we all want a go. Let him take you on a journey but please, don't let him ever take you up a clock tower... Fancy discussing this podcast? Fancy suggesting a topic of conversation?

No 82 - William Anderson - Interview

9/22/2018
More
Besides being the owner of Awaken Games, William Anderson was the chief level designer of some of Virgin Games' biggest titles in the mid-90s including Cool Spot, Global Gladiators, The Jungle Book and Disney's Aladdin! Adrian somehow managed to track him down so it's an absolute honour to introduce their chat about the old days and what he's up to these days... Fancy discussing this podcast?

No 81 - Rise of the Robots - Was it really that bad?

9/15/2018
More
Dylan's having a hard time convincing the guys otherwise! The much derided one-on-one fighting game brings back different memories for Dyl and he's ploughed the archives to find the article on the A1200 version which brought him so much joy in the Christmas of 1994. In the first of what we hope will be a regular feature of much beloved "bad" games, listen as he fails miserably to convince everyone that it was a great idea and actually not that bad...

No 80 - David Brevik - Interview

Any Diablo fans in the house? I thought so! We're fans too and it's great to be able to introduce Adrian's chat with Blizzard North's co-founder (and gaming hero) David Brevik!

No 79 - Grand Theft Auto (PS1) - The Start of a Phenomenon

9/1/2018
More
Racking up hundreds of millions of sales/downloads worldwide, to say GTA is a phenomenon is an understatement. It seems unthinkable that it had relatively lukewarm beginnings in its PS1 debut, a top-down 2.5D game concocted by DMA Design. Dylan talks the gang (minus Rob and Kev) through those humble beginnings and how what was viewed as an average title put in place the building blocks for possibly the largest franchise in gaming history...

No 77 - Virtual On

8/18/2018
More
Keith's dying to tell us all about Virtual On and the Mechs in his living room! Sega's arcade classic took mech-fighting to the next level and was one of the best arcade conversions to the Saturn. And there so happens to be a certain peripheral that enhances the experience and he's got ahold of that as well... Fancy discussing this podcast? Fancy suggesting a topic of conversation?

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?
