  1. Defender and Stargate and then, later on in the 80s, Salamander and Side Arms.

    Scramble

    Wow! That does look good!! I’m another who used to spend hours on Rocket Raid on the BBC B. Scramble was the first arcade game I truly fell in love with, I used to slot 10p coins in to that cab like they were going out of fashion, back in the day.

    What Song Are You Listening To Right Now?™

    The American by Simple Minds, from the album(s) Sons and Fascination/Sister Feelings Call. Released in 1981 (fuck.....I’m old!), but the topic is eerily prescient in this age of Trumpenomics: ‘Every time you touch this place it feels like sin’... indeed!

    Best one hit wonder of all time

    Benny Anderson and Bjorn Ulvaeus were co-writers of this (as well as the rest of the Chess album/musical, along with Tim Rice), so that explains the ABBA similarities.

    New Wave Toys 1/6 scale Arcade cabinets

    The Centipede and Tempest cabinets have just jumped to the top of my want list.

    New Wave Toys 1/6 scale Arcade cabinets

    New Wave have the official licences, it states in the description of each cabinet (I would imagine Numbskull are likewise).

    The OA (Netflix)

    Outstanding!! Been waiting and waiting for this. The first series was just mind blowingly bonkers and this (thankfully) looks like it’s continuing in that vein

    The most beautiful song you ever heard

    The Tim Buckley version is very good.... but this is my preferred choice.

    Found this in a cupboard

    Phoenix was a wonderful arcade conversion, considering the limitations of the carts and console, whilst Yar’s Revenge and Adventure are simply sublime.

    Your favourite film of 2018?

    Tully or Hereditary

    What musical hill are you prepared to die on?

    Getting Away With It is indeed a wondrous thing... but it kind of ripped off Love My Way by The Psychedelic Furs.

    Currently playing...

    Been playing some top early 1980s shooters from William’s Electronics: Robotron 2084, Defender, Stargate & (my personal fave) Sinistar! All on Atari 5200 and on emulation of the arcade originals on my odroid. The colours and sounds are almost mesmeric at times and they take me back to the seaside arcades of my youth.

    What are you playing Christmas Day?

    Mario Kart on the Switch. Last Christmas Day, my son wiped the floor with me, the Mrs and his sister on 4 player split screen racing.... but I’ve been planning my revenge for 12 months and it will be served cold!!!

    What’s Bluepoint remaking next?

    It’s sad that Capcom don’t see this.... I even forced myself liked Dino Crisis 3 (yes, yes, I know)

    What’s Bluepoint remaking next?

    Oh please, Oh please, Oh please, let it be Dino Crisis!
