Great Show!!

Just started listening -- happy accident w/ a Google search. Not too long, not to short (1 hour / 30 minutes on average). Covers my favorite period of gaming (post-crash) from an across the pond perspective. Keep them coming!

Interesting and Entertaining Perspective

Growing up in the states, i had little awareness of the (now retro) gaming world of the UK. But now I get to hear the perspective of what happened with my generation from half way around the world! Its amazing and eye opening!

Its also very entertaining. The chemistry between hosts is hilarious, and always works to support the discussion, not distract from it.
I now subscribe and listen to different episodes on my daily commute to work.

Thanks for taking the time to tell yer stories and review some great (and bot so great) games!

Oh, and never shy away from lovin that Jaguar!

Best one out there!

This is the best retro gaming podcast out there. As an American, I enjoy hearing a different perspective on the glory days of my favorite hobby since the hosts are British and Nintendo didn't rule the world over there.

We need more episodes!
