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...
