Matt Chat 42: Dragon Age Origins

This week, I look at Bioware's new Dragon Age: Origins, a smash hit to join the ranks of earlier hits like Jade Empire and Knights of the Old Republic. Dragon Age: Origins is a dream come true for many fans of older, more tactically-oriented RPGs, though we're still far from the turn-based micromanagement of games like Pool of Radiance or Wizard's Crown. What I particularly like about DA:O is the emphasis on characters' feelings--which include romance and "adult situations!" Enjoy.

Matt Chat 41: The Story of Cinemaware with Bob Jacob

Hi, all. I'm back this week with an exclusive interview with Bob Jacob, co-founder of Cinemaware. Cinemaware is on my shortlist of best developers and made several of the Amiga's greatest hits. In the interview, Bob talks about everything from the importance of Deluxe Paint to his love for chesty women. It's great stuff for anyone even remotely interested in the Amiga or cinema-inspired games.
