Comic book chat with Chris McAuley (Marvel/Utomik)

Comic book chat with Chris McAuley (Marvel/Utomik)

July 9, 2020

We thought it's about time we introduced you to our second-newest member (Retro Faith just pips him as the newest), Chris McAuley!

Chris has done a lot of colouring work for Marvel and some of you may have bumped into him at a comic convention or two. His road to working for them and dev house Utomik is quite something! We've dragged him along to chat about his career, comics, games based on comics and how he came into our lives (and boy, does Adrian have a story to tell about that!)

Next week we'll be discussing the history of comic books and their influence on games. We're also chatting about our favourite comic-based movies and games so be sure not to miss that one!

Sami Vanhatalo (Max Payne, Alan Wake) - Interview

Adrian's guest this week is Sami Vanhatalo of Max Payne and Alan Wake fame! The Remedy co-founder chats about almost his entire back catalogue, what he really thinks about the Max Payne movie, whether there's scope for more games in the series and also updates us on Sociable Soccer - the spiritual successor to Sensible Soccer which he's working on with Sensible Software legend Jon Hare.

Double Dragon - The Movie

Double Dragon - The Movie

June 25, 2020

The things we do for you lot! We've all had a lovely watch of the Double Dragon movie thanks to someone tweeting us at Christmas to do it (as part of our Secret Santa reveal, of course). Rob was gifted said movie so here he is after many weeks of painstaking research, withered and worn, to give his take on Billy & jimmy's excellent adventure. Spinach, anyone?

Resident Evil 3

Resident Evil 3

June 18, 2020

Stylishly late to the party as ever, here's our take on Resident Evil 3 old and new. 

Keith (who else) guides us through the PlayStation original and what he (re)makes of 2020's effort. And we try not to draw parallels between Jill's fight in Raccoon City and current events. Try.

Streets of Rage/Bare Knuckle Pt.2 (SOR3, SORemake and SOR4)

Streets of Rage/Bare Knuckle Pt.2 (SOR3, SORemake and SOR4)

June 11, 2020

Warning: This pod contains adult themes, adult language and not our usual lovely selves (mostly our lovely selves).

It's the moment you've been waiting for! Indeed, Rob throws everything he's got into supporting Streets of Rage 3 much to Dylan's disgust (he'll blame it on the beer, we'd probably say Dyl was just being an ass, ha ha!)

The gang turn to Adrian to guide the discussion about Remake, which none of them have played. Adrian's sound difficulties also provide some much needed comic relief.

And finally we discuss the game we've been waiting 24 years for confirmation of. One thing we cannot confirm is that Dyl doesn't work for Microsoft. You'll see what we mean...

Streets of Rage/Bare Knuckle Pt.1 (SOR and SOR2)

Streets of Rage/Bare Knuckle Pt.1 (SOR and SOR2)

June 4, 2020

The first of our Streets of Rage double bill features the seminal Streets of Rage and its bigger, badder sequel. You'll have to wait until next week for Dyl and Rob's bickering about SOR3, Ade's take on SOR Remake, and what Dyl makes of SOR4 (as no one else could be bothered to play it!)

Just another brawler? Just another Final Fight clone? The Streets of Rage series brought a few more things to the table. The gang try to decipher it all under Keith's careful supervision (SOR1) and Dyl's not-so-careful supervision (for the SOR2 bit).

So strap yourselves in for another pun-filled/jibes-aplenty/slightly-more-research-than-Wikipedia/remote AA podcast...

Eric Chahi - Interview

May 28, 2020

Adrian loves Another World. Hell, all of us (except Rob, grrrr) do! And he's shown that persistence pays off. After months of harassment - I mean, er, nice messages - the legendary Eric Chahi finally agreed to a chat. Certainly one for all you Amiga aficionados!

AA’s Top 25 Amiga Games

May 21, 2020

A few of you may have noticed that our Tim has been releasing vids counting down our favourite Amiga games. Spoiler alert: they're all here! We chat to Tim about how this came about, his crazy algorithm times our individual choices, and voila! An AA Top 25! We also get to know a little bit more about the man himself!

Eugene Jarvis - Interview

Eugene Jarvis - Interview

May 14, 2020

Warning: this podcast contains strong language so probably best to listen when the little uns aren't about.

Yes, THAT Eugene Jarvis. He's kindly answered an email Q&A before but this time he's agreed to take on our Adrian in one of our most delightful podcasts to date. From Defender to Robotron, Stargate to Smash TV, his work continues to entertain us to this very day. And his current outfit Raw Thrills goes from strength to strength in the industry that we love the most, everything he touches seemingly turns to gold.

So enjoy the stories, enjoy the banter, and pay tribute to a true gaming legend.

The Nintendo Wii

The Nintendo Wii

May 7, 2020

So here is the last of our pre-coviddy lockdown backlog podcasts and it's quite apt that we discuss the console that really brought people together. Even your grandparents.

Nintendo struck gold with their motion-driven console, the Wii. But why was it so popular? We (wii?) discuss our favourite Wii moments as well as some of the console's key titles. We also question whether the thing is really retro at all and Adrian puts up a solid (sort of) defence of the Wii-U.
