Dear all After I had the ultimate pleasure of talking with James Purple Hampton, I had the great honour of chatting with another Atari Jaguar legend - Bill Rehbock! Bill is probably best known for being the producer on some of the Jags best titles - these include Doom, Super Burnout, Atari Karts and Wolfenstein 3D. He also talks about his work on the Nuon console, Tempest 3000 and much more! He shares some great stories about working at Atari, his honest views on the true power of the Jag and the people he worked with! Please see all the links below to listen to this true legend: http://arcadeattackpodcast.podbean.com/e/no-61-bill-rehbock-interview/ https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/arcade-attack-podcast/id1174983594 https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/arcade-attack-retro-gaming-podcast Please let me know what you thought of the interview and if you enjoyed the podcast feel free to subscribe for future episodes.

...but then landed in the world of Atari Karts instead. With my mind riddled with excuses as to why the frame rate could be so poor for such a potentially good game (too many sprites, polygon buildings, textures, bad programming, the list goes on..) I somehow got sidetracked to Atari Karts, which is the only truly playable, good racing game (imo) on the Jaguar. I had given so much credit back in the day to how original Atari Karts was, despite the fact that it was a Mario Kart ripoff, clone, or whatever you may want to call it... it still had a uniuqe charm of its own. With it's weird, fat turning vehicles and rather visually pleasing backdrops, I felt it held its own. Then I stubmled across this and it completely wrecked that idea: While I can't find a single trace linking Vivid Image / Ubisoft to Miracle Designs, I can't help but feel the game isn't somehow ported or directly copied from one or the other. Steven Dunn did the PC port but he mentions two other programmers helped (names aren't listed and I can't seem to track it down). Could it possibly be Filip Hautekeete or Peter Vermuelen? Maybe not... but just look at it! From the way the cars move, the backdrops, and even the spinning characters and stats. Street Racer just gives me that Atari Kart feel. Now would you pay upward of $80 for that game on PC, like Atari Karts?
