In the latest episode of Doom Ray Kyle and Toby nominate their choices for the greatest video game soundtracks of all time. Who will take the crown? Who will save the princess?
Kyle and Toby are joined by Modern Dream Maestro Ollie Clarke to discuss his latest game LA Cops, from design process through to the highs and lows of early access.
Take time to reminisce on days of gaming awesomeness past. From Timesplitters to the ever present Final Fantasy, Kyle and Toby discuss their fond memories of summer holiday gaming. Ah to be young and geeky!
In this episode of Doom Ray Kyle and Toby discuss Guardians of the Galaxy. In this screaming fan girl edition of the show questions asked include: Is this the birth of the new Star Wars? Where and how does it fit into the wider Marvel universe? And, is Chris Pratt the sexiest man alive? (the answer is yes...yes he is).
Returning after a break with a special edition recorded at Birmingham's first Korean Film Festival at the Mockingbird Theatre in Birmingham's Custard Factory. Regular host Stuart Tonks reunites with Matt Green, Robert Sharl, and first-time guest Alexi, to talk about Korean films, horror, and not Star Wars.
In the longest It's Alive! show yet, Stuart is joined by writer and fan Tim M. Matthews to talk Marvel Universe films, Harold Ramis, and (once again) Star Wars, while nearly getting locked in the studio after hours.
Re:Sleeves' Ben Waddington met up with Ryan Hughes last month to talk about his label [RHP] CDRs. Ryan is the artist and curator of a variety of experimental music releases and designs the packaging himself according to an ever drifting, shifting set of rules.
Notes: The exhibition we refer to in the podcast has since come down but it's well worth keeping up to date with Ryan's activities at http://rhpcdrs.wordpress.com
Regular host Stuart Tonks is joined by Robert Sharl and special guest CJ Monk to discuss the recent history of the zombie movie, and try to get under the skin of one of the most compelling horror sub-genres.

Survivors – technically not a zombie movie but has all the tropes and more! http://www.amazon.co.uk/Survivors-1-3-Box-Set-DVD/dp/B001EVP838/ref=sr_1_1?s=dvd&ie=UTF8&qid=1391725502&sr=1-1&keywords=survivors+series+1+-+3+box+set
Desperately trying (and failing) to avoid talking about Star Wars, regular host Stuart Tonks and guest Robert Sharl talk movie news, and what constitutes a guilty (film) pleasure.
It's Alive! returns for a new series, with regular host Stuart Tonks in the studio. This week Stuart and guest Robert Sharl talk Oscar nominations and Remakes.
Ben Waddington talks to avant-garde music promoter Andy Hayes, and picks over a recent hoard of Psychic TV ephemera relating to their legendary early LPs.
In a return to the ever-popular world of "Frontiers", regular Doom Ray host Kyle Jobson talks to Lars Simkins about what happens next. Frontiers raised a staggering $157,381 from a total of 4,574 supporters. In this episode Lars talks about the challenges of putting together a remote team and provides a post-mortem on the campaign.
In the latest episode of the Doom Ray games show regular host Kyle Jobson and Toby Rutter discuss the massive commercial and critical success of the indie title Gunpoint. They also discuss the new Harebrained Schemes RPG Shadowrun. Is this a cyberpunk classic or does it hit a little wide of the mark? Thanks for listening.
In this week's Doom Ray–in the absence of Ashley–Kyle and Toby discuss the highs and lows of superhero games. From Superman 64 to Batman Arkham City and everything in between. They also touch upon the subject of the up-and-coming Batman vs Superman film. Enjoy the show and, as always, stay classy San Diego.
After a brief hiatus, Re:Sleeves returns with a show recorded at the new Birmingham Institute of Art & Design building in Birmingham UK. Special guest, sculptor Ana Rutter joins regular hosts Ben Waddington and Robert Sharl to talk about the David Bowie is exhibition at the V&A Museum. As the exhibition's London run draws to a close Ana talks about constructing a specially-commissioned artwork for the show, and we consider how Bowie's history tracks the cultural shifts in popular music during the late twentieth century.

In this week's Doom Ray game show Kyle is once again joined by Toby Rutter from Flix Interactive and Ashley Khan from Freestyle Games. They give their reactions to the Grand Theft Auto V gameplay trailer, and ask the question could this be Rockstar Games' magnum opus?
Following the success of our Rezzed special, regular Doom Ray host Kyle Jobson reunites with Toby Rutter and Ashley Khan to discuss the age old argument of quality vs quantity. Does a game have to be 100 hours long to offer value for money? Do indie games give you more bang for your buck? This plus a slightly awkward discussion about girls from school. Next week we will be looking at Rockstar's potential magnum opus Grand Theft Auto V. Enjoy and, as ever, thanks for listening.
In a follow-up to our obscenely popular interview with Lars Simkins–the one man team behind the ever increasingly impressive Frontiers–we take a more in-depth look into the features that make this game so special. We also talk about the success of the Kickstarter campaign, and the next step on the road to Frontiers.
Some strong language at the start.
This week regular host Kyle Jobson is joined by Ashley Khan, Dev QA at Codemasters and Toby Rutter Lead Character Artist at Flix Interactive. They discuss the many highs and not so many lows of the Rezzed indie game show that took place in Birmingham UK last weekend. They also take a wider look at the direction of indie games and the renaissance that it seems to be experiencing. Enjoy, and thanks for listening.
