Upon seeing the Spectrum Vega Plus for the first time in the press shots I must say I fell for it immediately.

It looks so well made and the design alone makes it desireable.

Sir Clive and the crew put it on IndieGoGo and it was immediately backed in just 48 hours!!

When I set out to make the Games Freezer website I was firmly in the retrogaming camp as I had become disillusioned with the current generation of video games 
(this was XBOX360&PS4 era).

I wanted to create a space to share my passion for the video games of old and all the cool culture surrounding the retrogaming scene.

Ironcast caught my eye immediately as a fusion of a few styles. Take Steampunk and add it into a Victorian London landscape. When I saw the screens I immediately thought of Walker on the Commodore Amiga.
Throw into that cool mix a ‘match 3’ game play mechanic and it would appear that on the surface of it you get a an interesting twist on a few styles of videogame.

In doing the Games Freezer website for the last 3 years I have always wanted to branch out to doing Games Freezer YouTube videos.

I’ve always had lots of ideas of where I could take it but never really had the time to do the videos and the website.

Now I’ve got my PS4 it feels like I have the opportunity to finally do what I’ve always wanted to do.

☆ What Would Your Ultimate Video Games Arcade Look Like? ☆ #Retrogaming #Arcade

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

As the 30 somethings of this world like me begin to yearn for more nostalgia in the form of retro video games and the experiences associated with them there seems to be a growing need for the gap to be filled with retro gaming related products such as dedicated emulation machines that play the original cartridges for various systems.

These systems are not the original but they offer a way of tapping into the awesome video games of yesteryear without utilising the original hardware and without the need to dedicate a whole Ikea unit to the 10 consoles and leads required to play from the original hardware.

There’s a fix in place for the retro gamers who want to get their console dose but it seems there is still a gap in the market for a genuinely brilliant arcade experience from the 1980’s.

☆ My Favourite Street Fighter 2 Memories Inspired By Retro Asylum ☆ #retrogaming @RetroAsylum1 @RetroRic79

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Listening to the latest Retro Asylum podcast which is totally dedicated to Street Fighter 2 has made me realise how much of an effect the game had on me.

There's a brilliant appearance from @retroric on the podcast that brought it all back home to me.

After listening to the podcast I felt compelled to write a Street Fighter 2 article to get these memories off of my chest.
