    Awesome show one of the best i really like hearing from other people on the site great stuff.
    Didnt Scopie do well i agree with all the arcade games he said great choices.
    the first game i played on Mmae was Splatterhouse then Midnight resistance and went on from there.
    Mortal kombat hasnt aged that well Street Fighter 2 is the better game i still play both to this day.

      Yeah it was great having Scopie on this episode, it’s always great hearing other peoples point of view on retro games.

      I think the 1st mane game I played was probally ghost n goblins or Robocop

    Thanks for inviting me on Andy, just listened to it and I was cringing most of the way ha! Hate hearing the sound of my own voice etc. The kids had me up most of the night before so I was very sleepy and also had a cough and was trying not to splutter all over the microphone but it was a lot of fun! I just played Zarjaz again the other day and the games actually not that good but still love the amazing soundtrack, really suits the game and makes you feel like your in that tiny little ship drifting endlessly through space. By the way, I cocked up, my you tube channel is Scopie33 not 32! Thats my PSN tag.

    Oh and I’ll like to take back Double Dragon as I just remembered the steaming pile of turd that was Roy of the Rovers. The back of the box had a nice colourful Amstrad screenshot and was no indicator of the nightmare I was about to endure. The draw of the game was that if you finally completed the horrifically dull arcade adventure game you were presented with one of the worst football games ever to grace any system – EVER!

    one last thing, I was thinking of youtubing a couple of old Granstand games, Dracula & Crazy Monsters. If anyones interested shout out and I’ll put it up.

  7. malc1976 says:

    Dracula & Crazy Monsters i would be intrested in seeing that as i have a old Granstand game called Crazy Kong i think it maybe the same game as it has Dracula in it but dosnt have anythink to do with Kong i wonder if its the same game?

    I just noticed at 6:17 I went on a tangent and never explained that the first night when my dad and I got home with the C-64 we couldn’t workout how to load any games! So my excitement turned into panic,them frustration and anger then finally near tears ha! But it all turned out o.k as the next morning I walked in and my dad had worked it all out (pays to read the manual eh?).
