Is it just me or does the pulldown menu now only say Giant Bomb's Interview?

Thisll probably be the first game I'll actually buy with actual money for my iPad.

loving these, this is the ideal stuff right here.

Jake solomon could definitely become one of gamings greatest devs down the line.

Fuck yes. Ultima V and Jake Solomon? Well I knew this was a great thing before but now it's a FANTASTIC idea.

@pudge: on Chrome it says Giant Bomb Interview for me and on Internet Explorer it says Giant Bomb Interview Dumptruck

The story about Jake's daughter trying to poke a computer screen was pretty funny. It is really interesting to think about what games kids are growing up with these days versus my generation.

I'm not getting Dumptruck on Firefox.

I haven't listened to this yet, but I just wanted to stop in here to say the Ultima V is probably my favorite game of all time. Everybody talks about VII, but V was where it was at.

I'm loving these quick little interviews, Patrick. Keep them coming!

Also, by coincidence I installed and patched Ultima V today but then decided to play some XCOM: Enemy Unknown instead. I'll get to Ultima V soon.

Good stuff Patrick.

Just, dumpin'.

The graphics of XCOM are surprisingly poor on iOS and I don't know why, the iPad 2+ is capable of very nice looking games.

On the livestream yesterday, they talked a little bit about how the size of the game was one of the challenges. Reducing fidelity of the graphics must've been one of the ways to tackle that challenge, I bet.

That is a shame, on the bright side though these are the types of console games that should be getting iOS ports, turn based stuff is such a great fit.

If I didn't just get XCOM for free with my BioShock Infinite copy on Steam I'd probably have considered buying it if the price is right.

Yet again people lured away from the best input devices! Pretenders to the throne never stop crawling out of the woodwork!

Neither does it appear in Opera. Just tried IE9, and it doesn't appear for me there either.

@fisk0: interview appears for me on Internet Explorer 8 on Windows XP

Good to hear some blunt talk about a developer accepting and adapting to touch based devices becoming part of the industry as a whole. Thanks!

@patrickklepek Should have brought in Greg Kasavin for the Ultima V talk.
