Really good interview.  Was fun listening to James talking to all the quarters he sunk into Star Castle.  So glad I got to spend many hours playing that game myself.


And his description of Lance, some great information there.


Soooo... any luck on getting that picture of the notes for the AvP CD project?  I like how that became the early information for the AvP PC game.

What a really great interview!

It was nice to hear him talk about Lance Lewis, sharing those insightful stories that some of us could just listen on and on to endlessly… was warming to hear him speak nicely about Sam Tramiel as well, whom I’ve always liked also despite the backlash he and a few others got.


I remember reading about the AvP computer voice in the past but it’s nice to hear the story being told! This guy lived the dream 🤘🏻
