Fellbeest ,

Awesome!

Thanks guys, for consistently providing some great insight and fuelling my passion for delving into the video-gaming vault. You are helping me dig up old pleasures, and in the process, introducing a new generation (my three young kids) to the joys of my own childhood. Keep up the excellent work! From a Yorkshireman in British Columbia.....

Brentonius ,

Excellent podcast!

Number one in the UK only? How about Canada… add that to the list! Anyways I got into this podcast after hearing about it on another podcast (The Retro Game Squad). I really like the discussions about games, and it’s neat to hear from a UK perspective. The podcasters always have great stories and memories to share, and that’s half the reason I enjoy listening. Take care guys!
