Re: Worthwhile gaming podcasts

I've run out of episodes of Retro Asylum and Arcade & Retro. Enjoyed both a great deal, my sort of podcast. If you think the Asylum was regional, check out A&R. I need to track me down a copy of Resident Evil Tree ;) Anyway, well done to all involved in both of those. I didn't get on with All Gen g...

Re: Worthwhile gaming podcasts

Howler of the week for Retro Asylum (to paraphrase): "Night Trap was made for some sort of console, but I don't think it was ever released because of the fuss over it". You must at least listen to one episode of the show with Swainy. He's much more our era I think, really into the Speccy (though th...
