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...

Re: Dave Perry

Dexter wasn't a bad presenter, just suffered from what was happening behind the scenes and confusion on HOW he was meant to be "playing" it. It's like Ed Tudor Pole following Richard O'Brien on The Crystal Maze. You can't do it the same way and a large chunk of the audience is going to hate you rega...

I wonder if someone will try to do a ZX Spectrum or C64 version?
There was a C64 version in development, they released an Ignition table preview. But no updates on that for a while now...

Re: What Films/TV Have you Watched Recently?

Loving the first two episodes of What We Do In The Shadows, spin-off from the film of the same name. Keep an eye out for a show called Wellington Paranormal, by the same kiwi makers. Same deadpan humour and worth checking out. I watched Slaughterhouse Rulz last night, featuring Pegg/Frost. It was o...

Re: Retrogaming Spotlight: Lunar Lander

Yeah, the stick gives ten levels of thrust depending on how hard you push it. Two buttons to rotate left and right, ABORT button that uses up a lot of fuel too. Moonlander is also the name of the first graphical variant, released in 1973 to promote DEC's new terminals. It also had a very early Easte...

How realistic do you think it is for eBay to check every single item listed?

Re: Questions for Big Boy Barry (off the telly. In the 90s)

Have you ever had to do PR for a game you really hated?

What is the best promotional gimmick or campaign you came up with?

Do publishers really discuss the Metacritic rating and its effect on sales?

Have you collected lots of freebies/swag?

Re: Is the forum in decline?

Most forums have guidelines about discussing politics and religion. To blame that for this forum's decline is ridiculous. And yes, games are political. All art is political.
