Taking More Than 9 Shots
Recently I spent some time over with the chaps at Game Informer, you know, that small gaming magazine. While there, I did a Replay episode with Phil and the gang for 50 Cent: Bulletproof.
I originally turned down the chance to do commentary on the game, but I changed my mind after thinking about it. Well, it may have been either guilt, or Phil Kollar’s silky tones that titled my judgment…I forget. Anyways, it was a fun exercise in facing one’s dark past.
I also got the chance to choose a secondary game from their awesome game vault collection (believe me, it’s an impressive place). I did want to play Maximum Carnage, but after trying the cartridge, we found that it didn’t work; fail! Skipping that, we decided to go with the follow-up to that game; Separation Anxiety (snes) in which, Spidey and Venom team up to beat Carnage’s group of cronies. It’s not as good as MC, but it was fun to look back at a project, on which, I still dabbled in doing art! Yes, I’ve also worked as an artist on games too.
It felt like I took more than 9 shots in this interview, but it was all in the name of fun. Enjoy.
