Excellent podcast

Top quality podcast. An excellent collection of hosts with a lot of passion and knowledge of the subject matter. The detail that they go into when learning and discussing each game is staggering. Absolutely unmissable..

Excellent representation of the UK / EU retro gaming scene

Have been listening to RA for many years now and the show is simply superb. I’ve never left a review for any podcast before but felt compelled to do so. As a 40 year old (retro) gamer this gives me a exactly what I want from a gaming podcast. Platform coverage is expansive and the genres discussed are wide and diverse. The banter between the boys is also great. A genuine highlight in my weekly podcast feed
