    ianwilson I’m sure is a great person. He never did unblock me from YouTube though.

    Still ianwilson, top guy, so don’t make the same mistake as I did and think before you talk even if you do have some beef with one of his subs at the time. 😀

    • Andy says:

      Ian is a really nice guy and im really glad to have met him at the replay weekend.

      Maybe gonna have him on the podcast 1 day.

      I never put any negative comments on anyone’s channel as I always respect the uploader.

      • TEOL says:

        Yeah, hope he does make it to the podcast. Maybe next episode unless it’s recorded already?

        • Andy says:

          no not recorded episode 4 yet, im recording a few this week,
          we are gonna have our first girl guest on the podcast in the next few weeks.

          she should make for a interesting guest as she has own blog and into retro gaming, more on this another time.

          and as for ian hopefully in the new year, we will get him on the podcast talking about megadrive stuff:)

    That Alcatraz sounds like a really bad hotel. Hope it wasn’t 5 star as I would expect better from a 5 star.

  3. TEOL says:

    Finished listening, great episode I had the feeling that I was actually in the replay listening to your banter about it.

    • Andy says:

      Yeah glad the new style podcast worked as we were going for that sort of style.

      That’s why we started at the beginning of the journey to Blackpool to the the end.

      Glad we achieved the flow, like you were there style of story telling:)

    Great show again gutted that i didnt go to Replay but i looks like it was great fun.
    I used to have a Atari Lynx but ive never seen Pacland on it but i bet it is close to the arcade the Atari Lynx had some great games that the Gamboy just could not handle STUN Runner is better than evern the Amiga version.

  8. ZXSpecstar says:

    Man i am so tissed off i missed this event as i would have been running around like a kid in a candy shop and im not kidding … and after hearing that the man responsible for some of the best computer game box art EVER was there man i would have brought a printout for him to sign…Book me in for next year

  9. pottyboy says:

    Another cool podcast! I would’ve absolutely have loved to have gone, but the distance and work commitments meant that I couldn’t. Would be very interesting to see Pac-Land on the Lynx as I’ve played several other versions and it’s quite a good game. And oh how I would give anything to play R-Type on a big screen!
