The Gamesome Mac Talks with Destineer & Bungie
6:05 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

On tonight’s broadcast of The Gamesome Mac, the Mac gaming radio program, hosts Sean Smith and Omaha Sternberg talk with Peter Tamte, founder and president of Destineer and former Bungie executive, and with composer Marty O’Donnell, audio director of Bungie Studios.

Peter Tamte’s career in Mac gaming is the stuff of legend: he founded Mac game publishing giant MacSoft, served as director of worldwide consumer marketing at Apple and then as an executive at Bungie (where he helped engineer their sale to Microsoft), founded Destineer, and then bought MacSoft, the company he founded years earlier.

Now, four and a half years after Bungie announced Halo on the stage of the 1999 Macworld Expo New York keynote address, Tamte’s MacSoft has brought Bungie’s acclaimed shooter home to the Mac.

Marty O’Donnell composed the superb soundtrack to Halo, as well as the scores to several other Bungie games, along with Mike Salvatori, and serves as audio director for Bungie Studios.

Sean and Omaha will also offer Mac gaming news, reviews, and commentary, and together with their guests will take questions live from listeners in The Gamesome Mac’s chat room and give away a copy of Halo for the Mac and an autographed copy of the Halo soundtrack CD and the Making of Halo DVD.

The Gamesome Mac can be heard live on MacRadio from 6 to 8 pm Pacific Time, 9 to 11 pm Eastern (Tuesday from 0200 to 0400 UTC), and on demand thereafter. Listeners can tune in at The Gamesome Mac’s web page, where they’ll also find archives of past broadcasts. QuickTime 5 or 6 and a 28 kbps or faster Internet connection are required.
