Ron Jeremy's Girth ,

Rock solid

Quivering with joy. Recommended.

Daryl Urq ,

Proper nostalgia

I was a huge fan of Gamesmaster as a kid, it was something I hadn’t thought about in years til I stumbled across this brilliant podcast, it reminds me of the good old days of gaming, before DLC, season passes, loot boxes etc. *sigh* a simpler time

Bufferboy ,

Double ‘Fun-tendre!’

Having started listening to Under Consoletation pre-lockdown, I stopped commuting to work and didn’t have the time to keep listening. Thought I’d jump back in again, and I’m really glad I did! The presenters are enthusiastic and knowledgeable and won’t let a ‘Diamondism’ go unchecked!

Every episode is well researched and my favourite 2 so far are the one with Vic Reeves and the Bonus GamesMaster Live episode. I actually went to the 1992 event and it wasn’t really a patch on the Future Entertainment Show which took
Place at Earls Court 2 in the same year- it was very sparse just a like one of the contributors mentioned. Lovely memories though!

Thanks for a great pod!
