Continuing the long E3 tradition of a Jeff-Ed Boon interview. Love it.

Posted by pwnmachine

I love Jeff's interviews, always asking the pertinent questions while still remaining casual...

Jeff Gerstmann, video game journalist of the century.

Whenever Jeff interviews Ed Boon it turns out awesome. This did not disappoint.

Posted by Tsuchikage

Boon: "I almost expect that if we did a puzzle game, people are gonna be like, 'Are there Fatalities in it?"

Jeff: "Well, to be fair, you've made a puzzle game with Fatalities in it."

This has to stand as one of the best interview segments in history.

Jeff and Ed Boon just have great chemistry.

You should read the slash fiction I made of them.

You should call it Noob Nnamtsreg.

Ed Boon is so nice that every time i hear him talk i just can't see him as one of the guys that created MK

i have the same reaction to john carmack especially when i first saw him i couldn't believe he created doom.

@amadeus: those things are from last night live bombcast, you can watch the archive on justintv or just listen to the audio version of the show around 1:44:00

Were the Hawkman and "fuck this place" things in this video and I just missed them, or did they happen somewhere else? If somewhere else, would you mind pointing me too them? Thanks.

Also, Ed Boon. What a great guy.

Soooo excited for this games story mode. MK9's story was second to none, and that was for a bunch of characters I didn't care about. Now you have characters that I do know, and Gray and Palmiotti are helping write it? YES NOW AND PLENTY PLEASE!

@ThePhantomStranger: Puzzle Kombat, which was a bonus feature in Deception and also was included in UMK3 on DS.

There was also Motor Kombat (a kart racing game in Armageddon) and Chess Kombat in Deception.

Ed Boon always seems like the nicest guy

Posted by mrangryface

WHARE HAWkMAN?!?!

Posted by ThePhantomStranger

Wait a puzzle game with fatalities? Anyone know what that is?

Ed's always such a sweetheart! <3

I love seeing Jeff talk to Ed Boon and Tony Hawk because you almost see a couple chinks in Jeff's reporter armor. You can see how stoked he is.

Posted by SoundChaser

What a cool dude. He seems really genuine.

Posted by SpicyRichter

Man I love Ed Boon.

I'd put Bleszinski on your influential designers list, as probably a lot of him goes into UE, and soooo many games use that engine

Toasty!

The four most important men in video games:

  1. John Carmack
  2. Will Wright
  3. Sid Meier
  4. Ed Boon

how you don't include Miyamoto is baffling

Exactly. Dude is number one. Also LOL at Ed Boon being on there. Seriously?

No disrespect to Ed Boon, but yeah, I can think of some other important dudes, Where is Kamiya? Mikami? Kojima? Molyneux, Garriot? I'd say Street Fighter is more influential than MK, MK was just kind of violent.

Fuck this place.

Good interview, game seems neat

Posted by buffalosoldier221

@jakob187: Ken levine, shigeru miyamoto, gabe newell, brian fargo?

Posted by Pr1mus

Ed Boon is the best.

You wouldn't imagine that the man behind one of the most violent and controversial franchise in history is also one the classiest person in the industry.

Posted by Nentisys

Getting Ed Boon to swear, nice.

I just don't see how Batman would be able to survive Superman's atmosphere punch... anyways I hope Captain Marvel makes the cut.

Well, I don't see how Nathan Drake can survive getting shot a bunch of times and regenerate his health. And he isn't even superhero! You gotta suspend your disbelief for the sake of the game.

Sid and Wil are the big ones IMHO with everyone else a lot behind ...

Warren Spector and Peter Molyneux are pretty important too. I would slot them in as number 5 and 6.

EDIT: Also Miyamoto is pretty important too, what with creating the first very popular home video games and all.

It's not E3 unless Jeff does an Ed Boon interview.

If Hawkman turns out to be the last boss in the Arcade mode, Day 1 purchase

I love when Jeff interviews Boon.

I would say in Western gaming... but even then it's hard to place importance because there's others that could be in the top 4.

"But... you DID make a puzzle game with fatalities in it!"

"Oh shit that's right!"

Posted by wumbo3000

Ed Boon is one my favorite guys in the industry. Love the interviews with him and Jeff.

I'd say Warren Spector deserves a spot on that list as well. The four most important dudes video game people are at least six people!

Edited by Undeadpool

I fuckin' LOVE Ed Boon. The guy's never without that big, goofy grin, he's about as open as anyone in the industry that isn't named David Jaffe, and he's willing to have fun with the GB guys (not so much in this video, but last year when they saw him so many times that he interviewed Jeff and Brad at one point).

Since Guilty Gear has apparently lost its way, I will happily accept Netherrealm as the champions of of the single-player content fighting game! This sounds AWESOME.

Posted by StriderNo9

I'm hoping for some Hawkman and Nightwing.

Posted by Coafi

Ed Boon, where's hawkman?!

Posted by fantasyfreak07

I just don't see how Batman would be able to survive Superman's atmosphere punch... anyways I hope Captain Marvel makes the cut.

Gotta love Ed Boon, always genuine.
