If you don’t know your RGB from your RF, your 60HZ from your Big Black Borders, and perhaps you’re complexed why box art varies so much from region to region, don’t worry… the boys cover all this and more as they pull out the best and the worst that each gaming region has to offer.

The RGDS boys sit down to chat about memories of PC gaming during the 90’s and the numerous Hardware upgrades they purchased to play the latest and greatest games.


Hear why Matt L can’t be trusted to buy a good Graphics card, why Drisky was king of the gaming world (for a while at least), why Kingy overpays for corporate junk and Matt A believes the PC’s time is now (as well as then…).


If you played PC games in the 90’s and know your RTS from FPS, your 3DFX from PhysX and your HBP from your AGP, you’ll have a blast dipping back in time with this episode.








Kingy is joined by special guest, Will Brooker to discuss the phenomena of "Filling in the Blanks" in gaming. Where the imagination takes over the experience suggested in the particular game.

This episode is based around the 8-bit era where the games were a lot more basic and the players own imagination took the game to a new level.

Will has submitted an academic paper on this very topic and discusses it in the show.

Details of Will's Spectrum documentary (as discussed in the episode)

I’m currently filming my first round of interviews with Spectrum gamers - people local to me who can fund their own travel to the university - and I’m going to apply for funding to cover the costs of more distant interviews.

In the meantime I’m inviting Spectrum gamers to mail me their video memories. Here’s what I’ve sent my respondents so far.

We can ask your listeners to send in their videos, and they can check details in the show notes.



The end goal for this project is a short film about Spectrum fans which will be screened at the Centre for Computing History as part of their 2020 Spectrum anniversary celebrations. It may also be screened and hosted elsewhere -- I'll keep you informed if that happens. I'll be gathering material over a long period, with the aim of having the film edited in 2020-2021. I should be able to show you clips before that.


I'm currently interviewing fans who live close to me, and then I will be applying for funding to cover the cost of interviewing more distant fans. I hope I may also be able to interview you face to face.


Meanwhile, if you are willing, I'd like you to submit your responses to some questions by video. The questions are at the bottom of this email.


This can be as simple as you like -- no problem with using a phone, though if you have other camera equipment, please feel free to use it. The videos will be compiled into my documentary film as a montage of responses, so a mixture of different styles and quality will be fine.


Feel free to film your responses to them separately or all at once. There is no right or wrong way of doing this -- just please make sure that I can hear you clearly with no background noise, that you're well-lit and in focus.

Thanks very much for taking part, and if you have any questions, do let me know.

I'll very much appreciate all contributions.

Questions for Spectrum fans

1. Your name, your age now, and where you’re from.

2. What Spectrum did you first have, and when? How old were you?

3. What did the Spectrum mean to you?

4. What were your favourite games?

5. Please read podcaster Gordon King’s review of Avalon here.  He talks about how he was entirely drawn into the world, experiencing fear and shivering in the cold dungeon.

Did you feel immersed like this in any games? Please say as much as you want.

6. What do you remember about the role the Spectrum played in your friendships and family relationships? (For instance, swapping games with friends, two-player mode with a brother or sister; your parents buying you games for Christmas; taking the Spectrum to a grandma’s house or on holiday...?) Say as much as you want.

7. Can you still experience the magic and wonder of the Spectrum in the 80s, or is it something of a specific time, which has now been lost?

Please feel free to send any photos of yourself from the time, and/or you at the Spectrum, your bedroom, Spectrum games from the time – or, even better, video from the time that you are happy for me to use.

Welcome back to RGDS. We’ve deployed our R.G.D.S Bravo team of Matt A, Matt L and Jon back to the Spencer Mansion to battle the evil demons of destruction, in celebration of the newly released Resident Evil 2 Remake.

The boys discuss their favourite memories of the original Resident Evil, the 1996 seminal Survival Horror experience for PS1, Saturn and PC, memories of acquiring via slightly dodgy means on Import 6 months before a PAL release, and Matt A had a few nightmares he’d like to forget about.

We also give a quick run through some of the games that inspired the original RE, and a round-up of the immediate sequels.

If you like Shotguns, Tyrants, and a Jill Sandwich, this is the podcast for you.

Welcome to the first of several episodes that RGDS will be releasing to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of the Sega Mega Drive in Japan, hosted by our very own Matt L.


The Mega Drive was a big hit amongst fans of the early grey import scene, and we thought there was nobody better to guest on the show than Colin Dimond, the former co-owner of the infamous Console Concepts import store, based in Stoke-on-Trent during the late 80’s and early 90s.


Colin gives his expert insight into the impact the MD had on the import scene, where the MD lays amongst its competitors of the time and the legacy it left on the industry.


This is a fascinating conversation, and if you enjoyed Colin’s last appearance on RGDS in EP 197 (The Golden Age of Imports), you’ll simply love this one too.







All music on this episode is sourced from YouTube channel - Savaged Regime.


The author reproduces famous video game tracks (particularly Mega Drive) using the MD’s own Yamaha 2616 sound processor, but vastly more detailed. Some of the tracks you will recognise, but will never have heard them so good!


Title music - Solar Modulation - original piece


16:10 - Track 2 - MUSHA Aleste - For the love of (YM2612 rearrangement)


30:17 - Track 3 - Mortal Kombat II - Title/Character Select (YM2612 arrangement)

Welcome to episode 224 of RGDS Podcast, and in this episode we sit down to discuss the import war of the 32-bit era, Sega Saturn vs Sony PlayStation.


In a modern day top-trumps, Matt Aguilera sides as champion of PS1 and Aaron White puts up his dukes to protect the honour of the Sega Saturn. Popular opinion during their heyday would see PS1 win this battle hands down, particularly if sales figures have anything to do with it. However as more and more have sample the delights of each machine over the years, we feel the debate is once again wide-open.


Host of the show Matt Lambourne plays the role of independent adjudicator as the champion of each console choose their favourite titles from 11 different game genres to determine which is the greatest machine of the 32-bit age.


Stay tuned to this one, hilarity ensures as two grown men reignite playground style petty squabbles and we re-visit some amazing games of one of gaming’s greatest generations.
