Brilliant Retro Gaming Podcast

Started listening to the podcast at the beginning of 2020, and absolutely love it. Working my way through some of the older shows as well, and enjoying every minute. Great mix of banter and knowledge - you all really know your stuff. And who can resist the sultry voice of Mads?! Ha ha. Highly recommended! Cheers

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!!!
