In Other News – 23 September 2016

2 min read


I often have no idea what to type in this space, usually relying on people to fall for “HEY LOOK OVER THERE” tricks as I scarper off to the weekend. And I need to change that. What really helps, is having a topic every week to revisit. And since we’re still sort of a gaming site, why not chat about retro games? One of my particular favourites back in the day, was Road Fighter.

It was an odd racing game, an 8bit beast with a top-down view and some blisteringly quick gameplay. But I always loved the sound effects that came with each session. The 8 bits of sound that could convey anything from crashes through to oil streaks which would send a person spinning. Damn good fun. Anyone else ever play this gem?

  1. Lol! I played that game quite a lot. The modern versions don’t live up to the 1984 (great year) original.
