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.

We’re joined by our guests from Neozaz’s Star Wars in Character podcast for the first part of our epic Star Wars Video Game Trilogy. Over the next three episodes we embark on the largest review of Star Wars video games ever undertaken. This means we don’t just discuss the greatest games based on the films but we also delve into the garbage compactor to rip into the rotten ones too. Episode one takes us from the release of the first Star Wars game, The Empire Strikes Back on Atari’s 2600 console through to Namco’s Star Wars game released on the Nintendo Famicom. Of course, as well as lots of game chat we all share our experiences of playing the games and being huge Star Wars fans as we grew up on different sides of the Atlantic. This epic trilogy also comes 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.
