Gaming Challenge

Last night the original line-up of The Lomos got together at Lomo 1’s house for a retro games night. To be honest it was just an excuse for us to get together and have a few beers. It was just as well really because Lomo 1 had lost the essential wires for his Mega Drive. It promoted a Goonies-esque hunt in the loft but unfortunately didn’t lead to the leads. Neither was it the catalyst for a big 80s style adventure involving pirates and treasure.

However it has prompted me to make a list of the games I’ve lost the most time to over the years for now good reason than I enjoy a good list. It might not be a treasure map but there’s a few gems in there. In no particular order:

Sonic – Mega Drive/Game Gear/Mega Drive Classics/X Box/Android/PC

Mario Kart – N64/Wii

Tetris – Atari/Game Boy/Android

Fifa – Mega Drive/N64/X Box/Wii/Android

Something that my Soldiers of Hell podcast mucker, Andy, and I have in common is a love of retro computer games. Having jumped back on the podcasting wagon lately, and discussed that on our old radio show we used to do a challenge based feature called Andy’ll Fix It, it seemed as good a time as any to do a retro computer game challenge on the podcast. So in this latest episode we tackle Goldeneye (it had to be Bond didn’t it?) and Hotline Miami. Power up and give it a whirl…
