This episode of Bytesize has a real pick and mix flavour about it. In summary just think of a mash-up of Dizzy driving a Ferrari down the freeway being chased by zombie dogs full to the brim with t-Virus. In more detail this means we have Paul Davies talking on the Oliver Twins’ Kickstarter book launch, the Drisk gets into his favourite game of all time Out Run and James Kent talks spooky goings on in his gaming past. Sound good? Of course it does. So sit down and get comfy as we blast this pod squarely in your face.

We all know that the UK retro gaming community is one of the most active and knowledgeable around, but how much do you know about the retro scene across Europe? Heidi aka stopxwhispering hops on our second Bytesize episode to talk about her huge retro collection and to drop some knowledge on Sweden's huge retro scene and its special attachment to Nintendo. We talk collecting, games and we even get into some N-Gage talk. Literally nothing is off limits for the Retro Asylum. You can keep up with Heidi via her website www.retro-video-gaming.com and Twitter @Retro_Game_Blog

The circle is almost complete as we present the third and final episode of Star Wars video game trilogy. Once again, we’re joined by Matt and Chris from Neozaz’s Star Wars in Character podcast to help us bring things home. Episode three takes us from the Playstation stinker Star Wars: Masters of Teräs Käsi through to our final game, the Lego Star Wars series. We discuss how the later games began to deliver an authentic movie experience over their 8-bit predecessors. Remember, these special shows come with a huge 266 page companion book which goes into even further detail about the games, stories and images from the greatest movie licence in the galaxy. You can download the book for free here. You can follow Star Wars in Character on Twitter via @swicpodcast or visit their website at http://www.neozaz.com.
