Sonic the Hedgehog - Movie Review

Sonic the Hedgehog - Movie Review

February 18, 2020

We love you lot so much we've brought next week's podcast forward just so you can hear what we think about the Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

The first half is a spoiler-free review but the second half contains a LOT of spoilers. Rob introduces the action...

The Bitmap Brothers

The Bitmap Brothers

February 13, 2020

Rebellion have recently acquired the back catalogue of The Bitmap Brothers so we thought it fitting to pay the defunct company a tribute. Well, Dylan and Adrian anyway. Yep, it's one of those heart-to-heart episodes you "love" so much!

From Speedball to Chaos Engine, Xenon to Gods, the lads have a good ol' chinwag about the East London dev house with Attitude. They also cover their hopes for what Rebellion will come up with for this IP. A VR Speedball? We can only hope.

And yes, the capital A was totally on purpose.

AA Radio - Dylan’s Driving Mix

AA Radio - Dylan’s Driving Mix

February 6, 2020

Wanna hear Dylan's attempt at winging a music podcast? Well, here ya go! Months have passed since Keith's amazing Mega Drive/Genesis Boss music podcast so Dyl took it upon himself to put together his favourite retro gaming tracks for those drives down to the shops.

He talks a bit, you're probably not going to learn much about the games chosen (Lotus 2, SoR 2, SF2, Sonic 3, Devil May Cry etc...) but you will learn how trying to put one of these together can turn retro gaming podcasters insane. Enjoy!

Dylan going bad acapella (SoR 2) here and with Adrian (SF2) here! You have been warned!

Tim Willits (id Software) - Interview

Tim Willits (id Software) - Interview

January 30, 2020

The id Software legend Tim Willits joins our Adrian for a no holds barred chat about creating the Quake games, leading design on DOOM 3 and what he really thinks about some of his former id colleagues (you've probably guessed who we're on about).

Greener pastures await him at Saber Interactive after around 24 years at id. Think you've heard all there is to know about Quake and DOOM? Think again! Tim's truly got his BFG out for this one and we loved it, hope you will too.

January 24, 2020

Friend of the show Andy came up with a lovely idea for us to rip off a popular Radio 4 segment, we'll leave you to guess the rest ;)

Adrian, Rob and Dylan venture their choices and there's only a bit of Atari Jaguar stuff in there. Kidding, obviously...

Amiga Classics: Walker (DMA Design)

Amiga Classics: Walker (DMA Design)

January 16, 2020

Do yourself a favour and for the first minute or so crank the volume UP!

Ian Dunlop and Neill Glancy's side-scrolling shooter captured the imagination of our Adrian and Dylan when they were teenagers. It struck such a chord with Adrian that he's structured a whole podcast about it! Also channelling Scott Johnston's supreme mech animations, Raymond Usher's thumping soundtrack and DMA Design's David Jones pulling the strings, it received 80%+ reviews across the board.

The keyboard (or joystick) and mouse combination was revolutionary at the time and made for satisfying action. But was it all a bed of roses? The boys are here to pick it all apart...

Alex Trowers (Bullfrog Productions) - Interview

January 11, 2020

I really don't think we've interviewed enough Bullfrog employees so in addition to Sean Cooper and Mark Webley we've now sent Adrian to seek out the legendary Alex Trowers, level designer on awesome games such as: Syndicate; Magic Carpet; Hi-Octane; Populous II and PowerMonger!

Bonus Podcast: PlayStation Classic Wrongness

Bonus Podcast: PlayStation Classic Wrongness

January 8, 2020

How wrong can Arcade Attack be about something? Well, confirming many of yours suspicions, quite a bloody lot, especially as far as the PlayStation Classic is concerned!

Listen to the podcast that was scheduled to come out before the final lineup for the console was announced only for Sony to get the jump on us! We luckily pulled it at the last minute but here it is so you can all have a good laugh as to how wrong we were. Wouldn't you rather our lineup though? ;)

2010 to 2020: A Decade of Retro Gaming

2010 to 2020: A Decade of Retro Gaming

January 3, 2020

As we face a brand new decade full of the promise of the new we’ve naturally decided to look backwards, at 10 years when retro gaming really staked a claim in the mainstream. Revamps, reissues, tournaments, bars and, of course, the characters that helped cement retro gaming's place in culture.

Max Payne

Max Payne

December 27, 2019

The American dream turned sour, Max Payne is the outlawed cop hellbent on revenge after the murder of his family. The 3rd person shooter brought many things to the fore so it's only right that Adrian and Dylan enter bullet-time to chew the fat/painkillers to get to the bottom of the original game, its successful sequels and the not-so-great Marky Mark film.
