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.

 

#KeepItImport

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)

 

43:15 - Track 4 - Sonic - Spring Yard Zone (YM2612 arrangement)

 

55:24 - Track 5 - Castlevania: Bloodlines - Reincarnated Soul (YM2612 arrangement)

 

Closing track - Vectorman - Oshin Thing/Tidal Surge (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.

In this episode of RGDS, it’s less talk about games, and more talk about how we play them!

Andy hosts a fatal 4-way with Garron, Matt & Ric to discuss their gaming collections at large, how they setup their multiple gaming systems for use at home and what specialist equipment they use to get the job done.

From real hardware, emulation, imports and Sony Trinitrons, this episode has it all and is well worth a listen for hints and tips on how to arrange the Ultimate Retro Gaming Setup.

 Hello and welcome to another fantastic episode of RGDS.  This time we interview a true legend, with the brilliant Jon Ritman.

Jon, the man behind such classics as Head Over Heels, Batman and Match Day games gives us an in-depth interview spanning across his full career.  He is a true gent and I guarantee you will adore this in-depth interview. 

Show Notes:

The ZX81 book that taught Ritman Basic in 1 week was Sinclair ZX81 BASIC Programming written by Steven Vickers

http://zxnext.narod.ru/manuals/ZX81_Manual.pdf

 The book that finally taught Ritman how to write Machine Code was Mastering Machine Code by Tony Baker

http://www.users.waitrose.com/~thunor/mmcoyzx81/

 Ritman Raiders (1982) On the ZX81

 A competent shooter on the ZX81 based on an obscure arcade game Jon stumbled across whilst camping with some mates.

 Play the Game Online Here:

 The Inspiration for Ritman Raiders we believe was an obscure 1980 Irem game called Uniwar S.  Ritman would have played the bootleg version called Sky Raiders.  The game is playable in MAME but here is a video of the game running  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRrt_OSZnkY.

 Cosmic Debris (1983) On the ZX Spectrum

 Jon next turned his sites to a great Asteroids clone.

 Download the game here

 Play the game using the Speculator emulator or the free online emulator here http://torinak.com/qaop

 3D Combat Zone (1983) On the ZX Spectrum

Always looking to push himself, Jon next tried to tackle 3D graphics on the Spectrum, taking on the Atari game Battlezone.

Download the game here

Play the game using the Speculator emulator or the free online emulator here http://torinak.com/qaop

Dimension Destructors (1983) On the ZX Spectrum

Jon's next game was his first original game, being a 3D space shooter.  It is great fun and is similar to how Star Raiders played.

Download the game here

 Play the game using the Speculator emulator or the free online emulator here http://torinak.com/qaop

Bear Bovver (1983) On the ZX Spectrum

After someone brought in the Mattel Intellivision and the game Burger Time,  Jon felt inspired to take on a clone that could rival his heroes at Ultimate Play The Game.

Download the game here

Play the game using the Speculator emulator or the free online emulator here http://torinak.com/qaop

Match Day (1984) On the Various

Always looking for what was popular, at a computer show he realised there was a desperate need for a Spectrum version on International Soccer on the C64.  So despite having no personal interest in the sport, Jon set about making the best football series on the Spectrum.

Download the game here

Play the game using the Speculator emulator or the free online emulator here http://torinak.com/qaop

Batman (1986) On the Various

Jon next set his sights on a licensed game.  Being the honour of the first Batman video game ever released.

Download the game here

Play the game using the Speculator emulator or the free online emulator here http://torinak.com/qaop

Head Over Heels (1987)

Jon would build on what he had learned from the Batman game, to make the second best Isometric game ever released.

Download the game here

Play the game using the Speculator emulator or the free online emulator here http://torinak.com/qaop

Match Day 2 (1987)

Jon would return to football for an amazing sequel.

Download the game here

Play the game using the Speculator emulator or the free online emulator here http://torinak.com/qaop

GLAM (1988 - 1992)

Jon would look to write development tools behind the scenes.  This was the tool Rare used, so if you played Donkey Kong Country or any of their Gameboy or SNES classics, then chances are it was written using Jon's development tool.

Monster Max (1994)

Jon would use the GLAM tool for a new isometic game for the Gameboy.  Called Monster Max it truely is the best isometric game ever released.

Welcome to the 2nd annual RGDS Drunkcast Xmas Party! As with last year’s show, this episode will contain some highly offensive content (at least for the first hour or so), so please do not listen with children present, or if you’re easily offended.

 

If you decide to listen and then wish to complain, we don’t wanna hear it to be honest.

 

The boys get to together for end of year Christmas drinks to discuss the year of great podcasts and tell funny stories. If you listened to it last year, you’re bound to enjoy this one, and we even squeeze in some fairly serious gaming chatter in the final hour.

 

All of us at RGDS would like to wish our listeners a very Merry Christmas and hope you can enjoy listening to this show over the holiday period.

 

We’ll catch you next year!
