I (Adrian) had the true honour of interviewing one of my favourite podcast hosts on our second ever Arcade Attack: Bonus Stage Podcast interview! I get the chance to chat with Ryan Rebalkin who creates the awesome Going the Distance: The Rocky & Creed Series Podcast!

Our Top 25 N64 Games

Our Top 25 N64 Games

December 31, 2020

Laugh at us once more as we come up with a "definitive" console Top 25 using strange algorithms based on whoever's hosting the episode. This week it's Dylan's turn to host the N64 top 25 as he's barely played 20 N64 games (better leave it to the experts eh?) And don't worry, you're not going mad, this episode was filmed after Thanksgiving and was postponed for a whole load of reasons.

AA’s 2020 Quiz Time Shenanigans - a 200th episode celebration!

December 24, 2020

Let's not beat about the bush, this is now our 200th episode extravaganza as the drunk mailbox episode was a complete write-off for several reasons. Will it ever see the light of day? Possibly. Might be something to tease to our future Patreon backers, hint hint. Just kidding, we're way off doing a Patreon!

Adrian has come up with many gaming-related questions to pose to the boys (the rounds in which definitely do not infringe any copyright laws...).

Rob and James versus Keith and Kev, who will be crowned kings of our "ef off 2020" quiz? Listen to find out!

SEGA Chat - Feat. Michael Latham

SEGA Chat - Feat. Michael Latham

For our 199th episode we thought it only right to wax lyrical about our favourite ever video game company - SEGA.

Favourite SEGA consoles, favourite games, favourite arcade games, memories - it's all here, for two whole hours! Ex-SEGA supremo (and, amazingly, AA fan) Michael Latham kindly joined us to join in the fun and tell us more than a few amazing stories from the company's golden era. He also sends a volley back at Mac Senour for some comments he made in a recent interview. Let the SEGA fest commence!

Ever feel the need to bong Donkey Kong's bongos? Then, have no fear! Arcade Attack is here! Well, it's Adrian with another round of slightly odd gaming peripherals that may or may not tickle your fancy.

Said bongos, an array of curious Wii controller "attachments" and a famous chainsaw are just some of the treats in store for you today. Bong bong.

Mac Senour (SEGA) - Interview

Mac Senour (SEGA) - Interview

November 26, 2020

Mac Senour shares some really eye-opening and unbelievable stories about his time working as a producer for SEGA for Arcade Attack. Mac reflects on the extremely strained relationship between SEGA of America and SEGA of Japan during the early 90's with some stories you need to hear to believe.

He also discusses his vital role on getting the legendary Gunstar Heroes released - which seemed to be destined for the bin! Mac also talks about his role on the SEGA Menacer gun, working on Taz for the Game Gear, playing golf with Clint Eastwood and getting hit in the stomach by Joe Frazier. Mac also reflects on his time working for Atari and US Gold and his role in helping Lara Croft and Tomb Raider see the light of day. Mac also provided a lovely text interview in the past for Arcade Attack.

November 19, 2020

Yep, we've gone all meta and are now interviewing each other! Ha ha! But seriously, Adrian has been the main driving force at AA so I (Dylan) thought it'd be nice to make him the interviewee for a change.

So, learn more about the man and let us take you on a whistle-stop tour of our journey so far. Apologies if we missed any of you in the shoutouts, we only had an hour!
