Joined by special guest and comic book aficionado Tom Percival, the team get all nostalgic with SNES pastiche Abobo’s Big Adventure and feedback on their experiences of another month of the MMO DC Universe Online.
In their first Freeplay of 2014, the team discuss the merits of level randomisation in Spelunky and a quirky take on Hieronymus Bosch’s art in Cave! Cave! Deus Videt. Also, Pete learns how to talk football and Dan confesses an embarrassing communication with a former sporting superstar.
In the first show of 2014 Sam, Dan, Pete & Kris come back together to share their experiences of the games they received for their Secret Santa in the Freeplay Christmas Special, see how Pete faired with truth or Lies, Dan with Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion, Kris with Prince of Persia and finally Sam with Viva Piñata: Trouble in Paradise.[audio src="http://www.inretrospectpodcast.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/IRS-Twelfth-Night_03.mp3" ]
Welcome in the New Year alongside the InRetroSpect team with the very latest Freeplay!
It’s that time of the year again … the Freeplay Christmas Show! Join us for a bumper special event, with gift giving and the annual quiz. In our festive show, we look at Making Fun’s Santa’s Village and bring colour to Christmas in Silver Stitch’s Colour My Fate. Which of us has a morally questionable approach to city building? Can Kris win the quiz again?

To celebrate the 50th birthday of Doctor Who, Kris and Dan travel through time and space in search of the best free games from the mad man in a blue box.
