Hello and Welcome to the latest addition of Operation Retroshock, its time for another episode and the guys have pulled another classic line up of games out the bag!
The First subject for this show is a quirky and interesting game that is a fond favourite of Chris’ the game is Animal Crossing for the Gamecube, DS and Wii. Allan tags along in this one as he doesn’t know as much when it comes to Animal Crossing but Chris gives one hell of a great run down of life in his own village.
Our next stop picks up the pace as we get stuck into talking about Sonic Adventure on the Dreamcast! The guys talk about their memories of Sonic and have a laugh at the fact that Allan didn’t actually have a Dreamcast and discuss how he actually played the game back in the day. Not only that but they give a run down of Sega’s success in recent years and ask the question could we see a Sega revival in years to come? You’ll have to listen to find out!
The Third stop of the show takes the guys down a Warp Pipe to Super Mario Bros. 3 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Chris and Allan have a great chat about what they loved about the game and the new features it brought into the Mario series. The guys also have a bit of a rant about the current state of Nintendo and why they are losing their focus; does Wii Fit ring a bell? Allan also gets a bit annoyed at Chris twice in this segment, goodness knows what about as they always seem to give off to one another!
Finally on the show Allan gets as close to his dream of hosting an episode of Top Gear as he more than likely ever will! Allan and Chris look at Gran Turismo on the Playstation 1! Well when we say Allan and Chris we mean Allan, Chris nods in agreement as you will probably guess when you listen, Chris isn’t a Petrol head or Gear head for our American listeners.
