I'm back this week with a chat with Chris Taylor, the Gas Powered Guru behind Total Annihilation, Dungeon Siege, and Supreme Commander. Chris is a witty and very passionate guy, so prepare to be dazzled. In this part, he talks mostly about how he got his start in the games industry, which includes mastering z80 on his TRS-80.

Eurogamer is running a great interview with Julian Gollop, best known for his work on X-Com (1994), also known as UFO: Enemy Unknown. You may remember my Matt Chat on it a few months back. The interview goes into detail about his past, which includes experience on the BBC Micro. A few revelations are that it did much better on the PlayStation than Gollop expected (he was very skeptical that it would work on a console) and the drama with Microprose over the graphics in Apocalypse.
Man, I bet he'd be a great guest on Matt Chat.
