PWNCAST | Season 1: Episode 18 – Nostalgia Trip

In this week's PWNCAST, at ODB's suggestion, we take a look back at the games and consoles that we loved when we were younger. We chat about the titles that got us into gaming in the first place, and take pride of place in our fond memories of days gone by and simpler times.

That's all after we talk about Dragon's Dogma, Carl waxes lyrical about his new PC rig and the latest MMO beta weekends, and we look at Nintendo's rather exciting post-E3 presentation.

PWNCAST | Season 1: Episode 18, Recorded: June 22nd, 2012

Music| B'z: Into Free -Dangan- (BUY IT HERE!!!)

Some of the things that get covered this week:

  • Dragon's Dogma
  • Why more awesome action RPGs need a kickass J-Rock soundtrack
  • Guild Wars 2/The Secret World beta weekends
  • Nintendo Direct: Namco Smash Bros., 3DS XL
  • Our first games
  • The halcyon days of the Spectrum and Amiga
  • Fondest early gaming memories
  • Our first FPS games
  • Favourite games of all time

...and much, much more.

This week in particular, we'd like you to get involved. Let us know what your favourite games of all time are, the games that had the biggest impact on you, and pop a nostalgic anecdote or two in the comments below.

We'll maybe even hand out a prize for our favourite.

Finally, do please keep writing in to [email protected] with requests, feedback, and topics you'd like to hear discussed. We've already had one or two (a tip of the cap to ODB for this week's topic), and we'd love to hear more.

Also, buy the Dragon's Dogma theme. Seriously.

Parental Advisory: We've tried to keep it as conversational and informal as possible, and you should be warned that there may be quite a few instances of strong language.

Awesomeballs lads, great pwncast, some games I'd forgotten until you said (cool spot!), what was cool is you started really retro then came through the years. Defo something you need to revisit!
