In part two of my interview with him, Sean Cooper discusses the making of Syndicate, one of the best action strategy games of the 90s and "Bullfrog's finest hour." I don't know about you, but I'd sure like to play his multiplayer version.

3D Dot Game Heroes - Armchair Arcade Interviews Scott Strichart of Atlus U.S.A.

3D Dot Game Heroes for PS33D Dot Game Heroes for PS33D Dot Game Heroes is an upcoming game for Playstation 3 that is set to be released on May 11th in the U.S.A. and May 14th in Europe. 3DDGH has a distinct retro-feel to it, and I recently had the opportunity to discuss the game with Atlus's Scott Strichart.

Chris: Could you tell us your name and what you do for Atlus U.S.A.?

Scott: I'm Scott Strichart, and my primary role here at Atlus is a localization editor.

CK: What is 3D Dot Game Heroes?

SS: 3D Dot Game Heroes is a light-hearted action-adventure game that pays homage to the golden age of gaming. In it, you control a hero (of your making, if you should choose to do so) who must seek out the six legendary orbs of the six sages in order to stop the Dark Bishop, Fuelle. It's a retro game built with the power of a modern console, something that really captures the spirit of the games a lot of gamers (myself included) grew up on.

CK: Most of us here at Armchair Arcade have a deep appreciation for many games and their place in history. 3D Dot Game Heroes appears to demonstrate its own appreciation for classic games by way of satire or parody. Could you elaborate on this?

Matt Barton on Chatterbox Videogame Radio

Last night I was interviewed by the team at Chatterbox Videogame Radio concerning my book Dungeons & Desktops. It's a terrestrial show based in Phoenix, but they are offering downloads of their past shows, including mine here. I think I even managed to get a plug in for Vintage Gaming towards the end! Unfortunately, I think only one of the hosts actually enjoys CRGPs. ;)

These guys are lots of fun, so enjoy the show! Hopefully I didn't make myself sound too bad.

A Conversation with Chris Taylor of Gas Powered Games

A Chat with Chris TaylorA Chat with Chris TaylorAs you've probably noticed by now, I've been doing a heck of a lot of interviewing lately trying to get some good material for "Dungeons and Desktops," my book on the history of the computer role-playing game. Anyway, it took some doing, but I finally managed to get a few questions through to Chris Taylor, the game designer responsible for Dungeon Siege and Total Annihilation. I had a great time with Dungeon Siege, and am looking forward to the chance to play the sequel. At any rate, I think you'll enjoy reading Mr. Taylor's thoughts on CRPGs.
