In this episode Paul interviews documentary film maker Jonathan Beales about his new upcoming film Retro Gaming The Movie. Jonathan has worked in the games industry for magazines such as ACE for Future Publishing. After working on magazines Jonathan left print media to begin making promotional videos for Psygnosis, Gremlin, Sony and more. Jonathan's upcoming film will feature hours of unseen footage from the games industry and showcase some great behind the scenes footage from the years of 1990 to 1998.
We discuss his career, how he got into the industry, the release of his Call of Duty documentary aptly titled ‘CODumentary’, as well as some of his memories from the games industry.
Hot on the heels of (6 episodes later than) our Commodore 64 Listener Top 10, we bring you another episode in the same format. Once again we bravely outsourced the responsibility for the games we played to you. Listeners were invited via social media to share their five favourite Dreamcast games with us, which we then combined to create a Top 10 of the most popular ones.
Phil is joined by show regular Tom “The Dreamcast Junkyard” Charnock and Chris Smith vol. 2, as they play and discuss the 10 titles you’ve selected. With three self-confessed fans of the system on hand, what could possibly go wrong?
Do get in touch on the usual channels to say hello or to give us any feedback. If you enjoy our work, it would be great if you could drop us a review on iTunes, they really do help us get the show out there.
