Great Even for Retro Novices...

Great podcast even for retro gaming novices like me. My gaming as a kid was limited to a handful of games (Flimbos Quest, Fiendish Freddy and Dizzy on the C64 as well as Zelda A Link to the Past on SNES) as we simply couldn’t afford anything more than that! Somethings (like some of the acronyms) go over my head but it gives me ideas of games I wish I did have and can find them on my C64 mini, SNES mini etc! I’m the type of gamer referred to on the podcast as someone who wouldn’t notice the emulation lag etc. I’m glad even experts on this podcast acknowledge novices like me!! Great way to spend my one and a half hour commute each way, each day! Stops me marking books though as I turn to the games and not my lessons!!!!! Argh!!!

READ THIS & THEN SUBSCRIBE 👍🏻👍🏻

Are you looking for a retro-gaming podcast that takes you back to the ZX Spectrum vs C64 vs Amstrad rivalry of the 1980’s? The Retro Asylum offers reviews and chat that covers the 8/16-bit era.
Launched back in 2011 Dean (still seeking a cure to his Double Dragon fixation), Steven (Action Biker fanatic), Mads (secretly, the King of Denmark) and the gang delight our ears with full in depth reviews, great banter and the occasional awkward pause. If you’re new to the channel I’d highly recommend starting with the 8-bit wars series and the Christmas specials. Subscribe and get downloading and prepare to relive some great memories 👍🏻.
