Desert Island Diskettes

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...

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.

David Craddock (Arcade Perfect) - Interview

David Craddock (Arcade Perfect) - Interview

November 29, 2019

It's not often we invite an interviewee back for another pod. It's not often the ones we do ask agree! We're big fans of David Craddock's and he's back with a new book titled "Arcade Perfect" detailing arcade games' journeys to the home console including AA favourite's such as Mortal Kombat and NBA Jam.

Adrian chatted to David about the book, their shared love of arcade games and the immense amount of work required to get those classics into your living room.
