Episode 112 of the Retro Asylum sees Swainy and Paul D and the Drisk get to grips with Nintendo’s classic N64 console. They talk about its history, games and the impact it made as part of the advent of 3D gaming.

We think this is a top episode. Hopefully you can tell how much we all enjoyed putting it together!

I listened to this on the way up to Play on Friday. Very good, and TheDrisk's N64 knowledge was impressive. Most impressive.

Cheers, I really enjoyed recording that one.

Anyway...

Episode 114 see’s the Retro Asylum team meet up at Play Blackpool where the guys interview the Oliver Twins and discuss a lot more than the Dizzy series.

Great interview with the Oliver's, despite no doubt having told those stories many times, they didn't seem at all jaded and came across as massively enthusiastic and likeable chaps. Has anyone ever tried to interview the Darlings? That'd make for a good listen.

Listened to the group ramble and now about halfway through the interview with the Olivers which sounds like it was great fun to do!

I chatted to them as well and like Treguard says, their enthusiasm is incredible given how often they must have told these stories.
