This is a slightly different podcast recording – we did it together at chez Victor, had a walkround of the garage arcade and did the rest of it in a Swedish airport! Live walkround (well, we were alive) at Hey Stockholm as well as most of the usual stuff. Many thanks to Peter Koskimaki for making the Stockholm trip happen.

Podcast 84 : Centipede

Busty, busty, busty – we’ve all been busty. Hold on – BUSY. We’ve been BUSY playing arcade games and writing about them, then yapping about them. Oh joy! This time around we’ve been in the garden and been blasting pesky centipedes with our disembodied head, while watching out for 8 legged mother flubbers. Diagonal poopers! Spin that trackball and listen to the ten pence arcade.

Podcast 83 : The New Zealand Story

We’ve been tasked with rescuing our tiny Kiwi friends from an evil walrus!

No, we’ve not been hallucinating – we’ve been playing The New Zealand Story from those crazy dudes at Taito. Flying about on balloons and magical geese while lobbing bombs at mean teddy bears and er, spiky things. Lots of spiky things. Too many spiky things perhaps.

More world records for our friends Charlie Far (David) and Pete Hahn (former GG gamer of the year)

Podcast 82 : Metal Slug X

Take one hero out of a posse of 4 and rescue the prisoners! This hero is a bit stabby & shooty though!
It’s all good clean pixelly arty fun with over the top action and some MASSIVE GUNS, and, er slugs?
We’ve had a month ‘off’ of arcades* and we’re raring to get back into it!
All the usual stuff, plus more usual stuff. We like stuff, here.

Enjoy! – Oh, and get to the outhouse and have a BEEF DROP!

*We have been playing, making stuff and not actually been away from arcades. #Notsorry

Podcast 81 : Satan’s Hollow

‘Cor blimey guv’nor – it’s old Nick ‘imself chuckin’ dahn lightning bolts and thems gargoyleys lobbing unearthly stuff at’cha!

Listen to the podcast to see what the above actually means! A hellish game to review – do the Ten Pencers get posessed? Will they join a black cult and start listening to dark music (one already does) But it’s good old fashioned arcade fun at the end of the day – don’t worry!

Some poor unfortunate from ‘Down Under’ gets an 1800s battering from the Victorian insulters.
