Let’s Play Virtua Racing (Saturn, 1995) w/ commentary

This 1995 port of the game which originally appeared on the Sega Genesis and 32x isn’t fantastic, but it does have a great soundtrack! Listen as I give you an overview of the history behind the franchise and the various platforms it’s appeared on. The post Let’s Play Virtua Racing (Saturn, 1995) w/ commentary appeared…


Lets Play Ground Zero Texas (Sega CD 1993)

Mike, Mike, and Dave play through one of Dave’s favorite FMV titles on the 90s. I swear, I’m going to beat this again at some point. While it’s similar to Night Trap, the production quality is definitely superior, and this is listed as the “2nd generation” of FMV games from Digital Pictures.   The post…


Let’s Play Virtua Fighter (Saturn, 1993)

Mike, Mike, and Dave play the original Virtua Fighter game, which isn’t terribly, but the jumping is as though you are on the moon. What’s up with the physics? Also, Sega re-released a remixed version of this game shortly after the original, with improved performance, textures, and less polygon popping. The post Let’s Play Virtua…


Let’s Play Quarterback Attack (Saturn, 1995) w/ commentary

Mike, Mike, & Dave play the legendary FMV football game from Digital Pictures. Ever play a full motion video football game? Well now you have.The FIRST professional quarterback simulator! You only play offense, but it’s an interesting game nonetheless. The post Let’s Play Quarterback Attack (Saturn, 1995) w/ commentary appeared first on Dave Voyles |…


Let’s play WWF In Your House (Saturn, 1996)

Mike, Mike, and Dave (and even young Diego!) play this wrestling gem(?) from the 90s. Personally, I prefer the cast to the 32x WWF Arcade Game myself. The post Let’s play WWF In Your House (Saturn, 1996) appeared first on Dave Voyles | Tech Evangelist at Microsoft.


Let’s Play Jurassic Park Sega (Sega CD, 1993) w/ commentary

Mike, Mike, and I played through a bit of Juraassic Park, which is every bit as difficult as I remembered as a child. I owned this game when it first came out, and could not figure it out then, either. They just don’t explain much to you, and there was no Game FAQs in the……


What is a Technical Evangelist?

I get asked this question pretty often, and I usually respond with “A developer who talks to developers”, but this recent interview between John Shewchuk and Business Insider explains it pretty well. The Developer Experience team is intended to be the company’s public face among the techie set, parachuting in to help customers and partners with whatever……


Let’s Play Shadowrun: Dragonfall

Shadowrun: Dragonfall I recently started going through this game again, after having stopped last year. I backed the game on Kickstarter and got about 12 hours into it, but it was brutally difficult and often times just completely broken. For example, your entire party would be at full health, then in one round the enemy……


How I got started in technical evangelism, part 2

You can find part 1 of this series here. This is a question that I get asked pretty often, so I thought I’d write it down to make it easier to share. Building a community I now had some connections with game journalists and developers, but how could I combine the two? Well, developers are always……


Some of my favorite Visual Studio extensions

I recently wrote an article about some of my favorite Chrome extensions, partly because I wanted to share some of the things I felt worked well, but also because I wanted to learn about what others were using as well. I’ve added quite a few extensions in my daily use based on those recommendations, and……
