Retrophiliac Vol.2 – In Retrospect

Looking back to your childhood and those treasured TV shows that you grew up with; that you couldn’t wait to watch each morning; and that made you laugh and gave you shocks – with the cynical eyes of experience makes them seem foreign and unsettling! “Mr Ben has never paid that shop owner once the free-loading git”, “Sure the clangers was good, but that whistling would have got right on my nibblets”,”Should the British Government really be spending the defence budget on training one-eyed rodents as intelligence agents?”

My point is that despite it being painful to dredge up the memories of old and judge them by today’s standards, you sometimes can’t help but be amazed by either the Nostradamus like ability of the games developers to predict future headlines, or their astounding naivety to overlook a glaringly inappropriate element of their design.

Retrophiliac Vol. 1

I’m 25 year old male and as such, like many people, I have dreams and aspirations. Be it to own a car that doesn’t squeal when traversing a round-a-bout, grow a ZZ-Top beard or even something simple like clear my student overdraft. Since I was a kid my favourite part of a summer holiday was to hit up the local arcade, no matter where we were in the country or even world I would keep my ears open for that familiar twang of midi audio being pumped out of a kids ride or the avalanche of coins hitting the metal tray on a Penny Pusher.
