Retro Domination Episode 81 - Feeling Nostalgic

Welcome to episode 81 of the Retro Domination podcast and the first episode for 2016. Happy New Year! To kick things off for the year, we're were lucky enough to be joined by Jessie Yeoh, Owner & Proprietor of The Nostalgia Box, a fantastic retro gaming museum located in Perth, Western Australia! We find out what her motivations were for opening this museum, what challenges she faced in sourcing the staggering array of rare consoles on display and finally we ask the toughest question of them all: Is Jessie a Sega or Nintendo girl?!

Next, Daz recently caught up with our good friend Erek Ladd from Retro Game Remix, who announced a competition to win a copy of his compilation CD of retro gaming covers, Retro Game Remix Volume 1! Finally, after taking a break last episode, our listener Q&A returns once again as we pose the question: What game system makes you feel the most nostalgic? Which system will get the most responses? Which answer will trigger the longest tangent in Retro Domination podcast history? Be sure to tune in listen!

Retro Domination Episode 80 - The Christmas Force Awakens

Welcome to episode 80 of the Retro Domination podcast & the final show for 2015. Where has the year gone?!

On this week’s episode, the team share their thoughts on the recently announced Coleco Chameleon system: the rebranded console formally known as the RetroVGS, which previously failed to meet its crowd funding goal on IndieGoGo.

After an extremely heated discussion, the conversation moves on to a more positive note as the guys talk about the much loved publisher Data East, discuss some of their favourite Data East games and pinball machines.

Last, but definitely not least, the guys share their *SPOILER FREE* thoughts on the latest instalment of the Star Wars movie franchise: The Force Awakens. Do they feel that it lived up to the Star Wars name or has Disney created another Jar Jar Binks blunder? Be sure to tune in and find out! We’ll see you all in 2016!

DISCLAIMER: We apologise for some of the audio issues that experienced in this episode. Unfortunately, due to a faulty headset, Daz had to switch to a different microphone midway thru recording.
