Paul McNally is our latest guest. Paul started his career in gaming at Europress publishing up in Macclesfield in 1991. Previous podcast guest Nick Clarkson gave Paul his start on ST Action where he stayed until almost the end of the magazine. In his years at Europress he also worked on Games-X, Mega Action and Bad Influence, as well as being involved with the tv show.
This episode we revisit the “listener choice” format, previously used on our Dreamcast, Game Boy and Commodore 64 shows. Back before the world went mad, we asked our listeners to share their five favourite Mega Drive games with us, which we then got Paul to count up and combine to create a Top 10 of the most popular ones.
Here it is, part 2 of our lookback to 1998. This is the year so many gamers say is the greatest ever! In this episode Paul, Chris and Arron discuss the months of July to December 1998. The Playstation was at the height of popularity, the N64 had the best line up for any year in it’s lifetime, the PC had several big hitters and much more.
