๐Ÿ‘️ Intrepid Izzy | Dreamcast | Review | 9/10 | "I’m off to punch a giant sea creature in the eye." ๐Ÿ‘️ @SenileTeam #GameDev #IndieGames

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

I do love covering new releases on classic systems. When I received the accompanying press kit for Intrepid Izzy from Wave Game Studios, there was a statement in which the game was described as a blend of Sonic the Hedgehog, Castlevania and Streets of Rage.

I wasn’t sceptical so much as squinting into the distance, trying to visualise what that mash up would look like.

It looks like Intrepid Izzy, as it turns out.

Some days I find myself trying to draw stuff in MS Paint and those are the days when I manage to produce BADLY DRAWN VIDEO GAMES CONSOLES!

My plan is to draw as many badly drawn consoles as I can in 2021.

Let's see how far I get...

๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“š Mean Machines Magazines - All The Video Games Reviews - Issue 0-24 "The Video Games Guide You Didn't Realise That You Wanted" ๐Ÿ“–๐Ÿ“š @JazRignall @RetroGamerDaz @MaximumPowerUp #MeanMachines #Retrogaming

Share This Post On Share to Facebook Share to Twitter Share This Post On

Well, I've gone and done something with my Mean Machines Magazine collection that I've always wanted to do but have never got round to doing until now.

For some reason, I wanted to catalogue all the reviews from Issue 0 to 24 so that if I ever need to refer to a physical edition of Mean Machines then I know exactly what issue I need to look at.

Yes it's nerdy and yes it is a bit silly but I think that it's something that you probably didn't realise you need but you do now!

I'm always on the lookout for retro gaming related items to buy, even though I haven't really got the room and I generally settle for emulation over physical hardware due to space constraints.

But sometimes I just like looking around eBay and fantasising about owning an AMSTRAD CPC and playing football manager 2 on it all day long.

By Ben Steele
So Arcades are mainly a thing of the past now although there are still a few dotted around they are nothing like what they used to be and I feel bad for new generations never knowing that feeling of putting 10p or 20p coins into these wonderful machines and having the time of your life well the time of my life.

My brother came around last weekend and I had received a text from him the previous evening that simply asked:
“Would you mind if we spent all day playing Mega Drive games?”
My answer was in the affirmative, natch.

Podcasts have become a massive part of my video games world.

As I run Games Freezer I feel the need to stay up to date on all things Retro, Indie, and Current Gaming.

The best way to do that for me is using my commute time wisely by tuning into my favourite Podcasts from the world of Technology & Gaming.

It's my pleasure to have The Drisk in the Games Freezer for Video Games Memories.

The Drisk is an encyclopedia of all video games knowledge and someone I have enjoyed listening to for the last 3 years.

I first became aware of The Drisk when I began listening to the Retro Asylum podcast as The Drisk was a regular on the show at the time.

Now let's delve a bit deeper into the Video Games Nostalgia gland of the almighty Drisk!

Every time I go onto Shika Arcades website I fall in love with the awesome video game arcade stick that they have created for the Super Nintendo / Super Famicom.

It's a work of art and the Sozu Arcade Stick joystick is now available in a small amount of units from Shika.
