Re: Amiga musicians/C64 musicians

Some names I've not seen for a long time there... thanks for the memory refresh! Will go hunt some of that down and have a good old listen. I still can't get as nostalgic over Amiga music like I do over C64 music though. I get that. While there have been some great Amiga remixes, I still prefer lis...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 200

DRS your interview with Mathew Smith was superb and I can very much related to Mathew. I think a lot of people have rose tinted glasses to bedroom programmers whilst Matt says it’s not really as good as people think. Chasing publishers to get payed. One of the best issues I read In a long time. I t...

Re: Samurais & Ninjas

How about Second Samurai? I played on ST, but it's on various platforms. And the original First Samurai (named that as a joke because some of the team had previously worked on The Last Ninja...) Samurai Warrior: The Battles of Usagi Yojimbo is one of my favourites, with its Karma system (the lead c...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 200

Well, finally had the time to read the issue - and it's a very fitting way to mark such an important issue.

I joked with Nick on Twitter about making issue 255 an 8-bit special...

Re: Questions for Barry Leitch

Thanks for the questions guys. The interview will be in issue 201. Skinny, Barry says hi - and remember the bottle of cider? Eric, Barry wonders if you were someone he knew back then. Rory - Steve Crow did the C64 graphics for Marauder but Barry never met him. He only did the 48K Spectrum music for ...

Re: Retro Gamer - Issue 200

Just been away but come back and nice to see the issue delivered. Firstly congrats to the team, in this day and age to reach issue 200 in a niche market is very impressive. Had a flick through quickly, looks good to me, nice huge timetable of the different eras. Perhaps there is one or two bits whi...

Why can't anyone do Gauntlet 3D properly like on the PS2/Arcade? Would you be in on a new spin on it? (It was Barry who did the original IIRC?)
Yes, Barry did music for Gauntlet Legends and Gauntlet Dark Legacy

Re: Questions for Barry Leitch

Added a list of titles to the first post. There's two reasons I didn't post it last night. Firstly, this interview has been arranged at the last minute so not had the time to research. Secondly, I was posting from my phone which makes it hard to type lots of text/copy from some sources. Anyway, it's...
