Wonderful time machine!

As a yank growing up in South America the European gaming scene in the 80's was always a bit of a musters and listening to these memories of people who lived and loved is like a window into an undiscovered country. Love the show!


Glenn and Andy have one of the best retro gaming podcasts on the net. I drive a bus overnight 5 days a week, and need good podcasts to keep me going. Problem is good podcasts are hard to find. Anybody can grab a microphone and make a podcast. These two guys (soon to be more) have just the right touch. They are clean (for the most part) so I do not have to worry about the language like I do with some of the others. Every once in a while a word slips out, but they are far and few between. These are two guys that are having fun doing what they are doing, and the kind of guys you would love to have a beer with and talk retro gaming. The thing I like is they are in the UK, whereas most are in the US (like me), and it is nice to get a European perspective on the way things were back then. I highly recomend giving them a listen. Love there accents too! :)


Great UK perspective on retro games.

The gold standard for retro podcasts is the AMAZING Retronauts. They are very knowledgeable and well researched. Retro Asylum is not worse than Retronauts, it is just a different perspective and a different type of podcast (mostly weekly for one). Retro Asylum is chummier, more like hanging out with friends while learning about old games and systems.

The hosts are mostly great and I really appreciate the UK perspective. I like hearing about 8-bit microcomputers and the Amiga/ST in addition to consoles. Games and systems are discussed that I have no prior connection to, but that does not mean that they are not great games or systems. After all, if there is a great game I should be playing, it does not matter what system it is on.

My only real complaint is that occasional shows could be edited better and the sound quality here and there is not great.
