A lot of you out there may have heard of Funstock; a familiar company that has now reached out firmly in to the Retro Gaming Community. Funstock Retro has a catchy motto that let's us know exactly what kind of ethos they spread: "Europe's #1 Retro Gaming Destination". Having spent some time reviewing Funstock's products in the past I felt compelled to dive in to their world that little bit further to find out just what we can expect to see in the future. I had a chat with Andy Pearson; Funstock's Head of Marketing to establish just that.
#1Tell us a bit about yourself and how you became acquainted with Funstock?
I was originally working for PQube and part of my role there was to Market and PR the retro hardware range. Later in my role we setup Funstock as a retail channel to push this range to a wider audience. My background is Marketing and PR and it now encompasses all aspects of online retailing too.
#2What consoles and games did you grow up on?
I had pretty much everything growing up. I remember having a C64 but this is really really vague, I was born in ’86, so I would have been less than 10 when I had that. However, I vividly remember unboxing the SEGA Mega Drive with Golden Axe! From then on I had all of the key consoles, with some of my favourites being the SNES, Dreamcast, N64 and PS2.
Games wise, my all-time favourites are Zombies Ate My Neighbours (SNES), Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 (on PC), Warriors of Fate (arcade), Bezerk (arcade), Sunset Riders (arcade) and Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker (arcade).
#3You can take one console and one game to a desert island. What would they be?
Retron 5 and Super Mario All Stars (I’d go with the Retron 5 for the HD upscaling J)
