Matt Chat 159: Dave Warhol on Serious Games (REPOST)

There was some error with the iTunes feed for this post, so I'm reposting it. Sorry for the inconvenience. Thanks to Wholly for pointing this out.

In the final segment of interview with Realtime Associates founder Dave Warhol, we discuss his tenure on the Tiger Team for Saturn before delving into the mysterious and fascinating world of "Serious Games." We wrap up with a discussion of the future of games, in which Dave sees a much broader definition of "videogaming" that includes work, medicine, and music as well as pure play.

Mark plays... Zaxxon (Arcade)

A link to a great comparison video by http://www.youtube.com/user/GamingHistorySource

Zaxxon, I believe this is one of the first isometric arcade games out there. It was developed and published by Sega in 1982 and one could call it a so called 'isometric shoot'm up'.

Many ports were created on various platforms like: Apple II, Atari 8bit home computers, MS-DOS (CGA), Atari 2600, MSX, Commodore 64, Dragon32, Colecovision, Intellivision, Sega SG-1000, TRS 80 Coco.

The 2600 and Intellivision versions didn't use the isometric viewpoint and are much unlike the others.

The Amstrad CPC, BBC micro computer and Ti/99 reveived well done but unliscensed ports.

Bayonetta: The Sexiest Videogames of All Time (02)

In Armchair Arcade's fun new series, we ask the provocative question, "What makes a particular videogame sexy?" Each week's feature will explore some of the many intriguing approaches game designers have taken over the years to make their games more sensual, not just with increasingly detailed graphics, but also with romantic and seductive gameplay. While some of the games we'll be looking at are unabashedly low brow, displaying their raw sexuality like a badge of honor, other games in contrast are remarkably subtle, often downplaying their suggestive themes.

This week's entry, written by Chris Kennedy, is on Sega's over-the-top hack and slash action game, Bayonetta. Enjoy, help spread the word, and of course, let us know what you think:

Mark plays... Formula Karts Special Edition (Saturn)

In this video I am trying to play Sega Karts Special Edition on the Saturn and I talk a bit about the game, life, the universe and everything on the side.

This game is fun if you are into your old school PC-VGA-like Kart games, mind you this is not much like Mario Kart and the likes. This pretends to be a serious game and it sort of is.

Again experimenting with various video setups to see what works and what doesn't.

Mark plays... Sega Ages Vol 1 (Saturn) - (Outrun, After Burner II, Space Harrier)

In this video I am trying to play Sega Ages Vol 1. on the Saturn and talk a bit about the game, life the universe and everything on the side. Again experimenting with various video setups to see what works and what doesn't.

This disc is a must-have for Saturn gamers, especially if you want Arcade Perfect ports of Outrun, Space Harrier and After Burner II on a home console.
