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

9/8/2018

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 78 - Bruce Shelley - Interview

Take a break from us waffling/arguing and listen to Adrian's chat with the man who created Railway Tycoon and Civilisation (with Sid Meier of course), retro gaming god, Bruce Shelley!

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?

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 73 - Chris Shrigley - Interview

7/21/2018
More
The Electronic Arts and Gremlin supremo joined us back in 2016 for an email Q&A but we're pleased to say he's now agreed to podcast with our Adrian to chat about the golden era of video games as well as a very exciting current project... Immortal darkness feature here. And why not check out the aforementioned 2016 email Q&A. Fancy discussing this podcast? Fancy suggesting a topic of conversation?

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. This also features a review and snippets of 8 Bit Weapon's new self-titled album! Check out our written review of the album - 8 Bit Weapon Review. Fancy discussing this podcast?

No 71 - David Craddock - Interview

7/7/2018

David Craddock is one of our favourite retro gaming authors - you may have had a read of: Stay Awhile and Listen; Dungeon Hacks; Stairway to Badass; to name just a few. We recently did an email Q&A with him about Rocket Jump and he kindly gave us some more of his time to chat to Adrian about retro gaming and his upcoming kickstarter for the second part of Stay Awhile and Listen...

No 70 - Zelda: A Link to the Past

7/1/2018

Still proving that we podcast about things other than Sega, Adrian does his best to sell the SNES classic, Zelda: A Link to the Past, to Rob and Dylan. Has he done enough?

No 69 - Jaguar CD & Sega (Mega) CD First Impressions!

6/23/2018

Adrian and Dylan have finally shelled out for their most wanted CD peripherals and they're not happy! Just kidding! Adrian's picked up the Jag CD, Dylan paid a bit less for his Sega CD, let's find out how they've got on in the first month of owning them...

6/16/2018

The Grim Fandango/LucasArts supremo kindly gave some of his time to drop and have a good chat with our Adrian for a truly fascinating insight into working with Tim Schafer, the LucasArts crew, and the sheer work required to bring a masterpiece like Grim Fandango to life.

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...

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?
