You Ask The Questions - Tim Kitzrow

Something a little different for my next In The Chair interview... Tim Kitzrow is renowned as the voice of NBA Jam, Midway's fast-talking, fast-moving basketball game. Phrases such as Boomshakalaka, He's On Fire! and Is it the shoes? have passed into gaming legend. He is the only voice actor to have...

Re: Critiques of the RPG genre

What exactly are you looking for? Critical reviews of RPG games, or critical reviews of the industry!? I used to have a book called 'Dungeons and Desktops' that has a lot of information about both RGP games and the companys that made them. That may be of some help. There's also The CRPG Book from B...

I love the Speccy Addict films, some really good interviews with the folks that made some of my favourite games and magazines from that era. I'm glad to have backed all 3 on Kickstarter.

Re: Tiger Road - US versions?

Shadowman, I said "alternative" US versions. Like with Bionic Commando, there's a UK version and a US version.

Antiriad, I had encountered the US cover art but again it doesn't seem to be a different game within.

Tiger Road - US versions?

So I'm researching the Capcom arcade game Tiger Road and am trying to check some facts. 1. Wikipedia lists alternative US versions for C64 and Amiga. I can't find any further references to these online. Does anybody know any more? 2. Which board/system does the original arcade game run on? I know it...
