The Retro Asylum Thread - A Very Retro Christmas

Post by Swainy » Wed Feb 18, 2015 4:11 am

Rather than have different threads for each thing we publish, I thought that it would be easier just to have the one topic.

So, what is Retro Asylum? We are the UK's No1 retro gaming podcast show and we also have an ever growing YouTube channel.

So here are a few of our latest videos:

Just finished listening to the latest episode - the DOOM muisc slotted in to Paul's FPS section was amazing - found it online, it's from DOOM3 remake mode which is original DOOM remade in the DOOM3 engine.

Dean Swain & Paul Davies return in what can only be described as the most strange episode of the show so far. The guys somehow manage to crash a jet and end up stranded on a desert island with only a handful of retro systems and games to keep themselves entertained.
