Please note:- There are 2 versions of this episode; the stereo mix is done in a cinematic way to celebrate the movies.  If you, for whatever reason, require the mono version - please choose that one

For best listening experience use headphones in a dark room with some alcoholic beverages of your choice :D

In this epic sci-fi episode, Ric and Kingy awake from their retro cryo-pods aboard the RGDS Nostromo and chat about all these lovely Alien themed games. The titles range from the 8-bit era, right through to the 64-bit generation. You may hear the lads wax lyrical about their favourite titles, but remember - in space, no one will hear them scream.

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.
