DuckTales director reacts to reviews, exudes maximum love


10:00 AM on 08.24.2013



On last week's Sup Holmes (now on iTunes and t-shirts), we welcomed Austin Ivansmith back to the program. We heard all about his fine arts background and formative experiences which brought him to game development in his first appearance on the show, so this time we concentrated on his biggest project to date -- DuckTales Remastered

There was a lot to talk about, which lead to use going almost 30 minutes longer than usual. Taking on a largely abandoned but still beloved Disney/Capcom franchise like DuckTales is no small potatoes, but Austin clearly had the heart and mind necessary to make it happen. Reuniting the original voice actors from the show, bringing on original artists from Disney, staying true to the spirit of the show and the game while adding new content while cutting design elements that limited the original title, and putting it on almost every console out today took a lot of risk taking, know how, and inspiration.

You'd imagine that after having put so much of yourself into a project, that reading a few damning reviews would be disillusioning, but Austin remains cool and respectful towards the game's detractors. There was a whole lot more we talked about, but if I recap it all hear, you'll be reading this all day . 

Thanks again to Austin for hanging out with us, and tune in this Sunday at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we welcome Yacht Club Games and WayForward composer Jake "Virt" Kaufman. Watch as WayForgust continues on to victory.

League of Legends' Curse of the Sad Mummy video is depressing

People often chide the League of Legends series for having a silly story, but as a player I dig the character fluff. Amumu has always been one of my favorites -- a sad mummy boy who just wants to find out who he really is. In this official music video from Riot Games, you can get a glimpse into the depressing life of Amumu. Like the studio's past efforts, it's actually pretty good.more

I hope this video satisfies your desire for disclosure

Here's the full triple-scoop disclosure bottom line. Alessandro and I went to cover this preview event for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt last week. I was late to be added to the list, so we knew going in that we'd have to sh...more

Resident Evil HD causes night terrors, sandwiches

I had a real weird night with Resident Evil HD. It's continuing as I look for screens to use as thumbnail images and stumble upon nude, pregnant Jill mods for Resident Evil 4. And here I thought I was making questionable use of my time.more
