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

September 15, 2018

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...

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

September 1, 2018

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

August 25, 2018

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

August 18, 2018

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...

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

August 11, 2018

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...

No 75 - Waluigi - Criminal, or Criminally Underused?

August 4, 2018

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...

No 74 - Sunset Riders - Where is the love?

July 28, 2018

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 Redemption a little bit...

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.

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

July 14, 2018

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.
