Brings back old memories

As an avid retro games collector myself, and originally being from Ireland, I grew up with all of the systems that you guys talk about. American retro gaming is completely different, but I'm glad to have found this podcast and I really enjoy it on my commutes to and from work - it even inspires me to take the time and break out my old Amiga 1200 and Spectrum to play!

Time Machine to my childhood!

Have always been a nostalgia junkie, but only recently decided to start listening to the community and found this great podcast! The thing that kept me listening and also to start checking out the forums and website is the genuine nature of everyone involved. Absolutely love the specials, especially the Speccy and Amiga ones as those were my machines of choice! Also as an expat living in the US, its nice to hear the range of accents again! ;-)

Hit or Miss

An odd bunch of clique hosts relatively new to the GBR retro gaming culture scene. Deliveries range from quite well-spoken to "propa ruff" and to one being an annoying bumbling pipsqueak. The Retro Hour this is not. Expertise, experience and knowledge-wise it is definitely the mainstream popular in GBR 8-bit and 16-bit home computers and PAL console tat they excel in. When it comes to Japanese issue TV and coin-op games they are way out of their depth, often resulting in just reciting Wikipedia and emulators. The SFII episode was great as it actually had new blood that were knowledgable and experienced with interesting anecdotes on the subject matter. On the whole, if being GBR-centric and microcomputers are your bag=great.
