It's pretty easy to look at Tim Schafer, the mind behind Brütal Legend, and see the stadiums full of adoring fans, the stretch limos, the diamond studded fingernails, and forget he too was once a man just looking for a job. Tim recently started his 20th year in the games industry, which not only makes him able to sport antique license plates, but also gives him a chance to reflect on his humble beginnings. To mark the occasion, he has posted a collection of letters that chronicle some notable job correspondence. Just to drive home that this is really two decades ago, may I note, that these are actual letters...on paper. Personally, I'm really glad Tim isn't currently working on printer drivers.
Check out the rest of the madness!
Also, in the spirit of unlikely career turns and to add a bit of perspective, here's a little something I shot with my little brother probably around the time Tim was wrapping up his probationary period at Lucasfilm. This version was retouched some time in the 2000s, when I could fully realize my vision...releases in 2003!
* Note: Yup, that's me as the tauntaun.
Not sure if this is posted somewhere already, but check this out:
Ha, you guys are good! I like the diligence. Here's a screen cap of the game credits in case you guys were still curious. I was really happy to try and add a little love for the colorblind folks out there and help Chris anyway I can, he is a great guy.
[SPOILERS...but also an answer]
It's in the same room as the scuba mask. Jump over the rack where you got it and it's under the water. Doesn't show up on the map as a "?" because the mask is in the same room. I had trouble with this one too.
Hope that helps.
Find that last missile or armor pack!
Happy item hunting!
I'll tell you straight out that I feel bad for Brad and Ryan, I really do. Between me running around the office screaming "BLACK FROST HO!" and Jeff going insane running his own private Persona 4 investigation, Atlus has penetrated our offices pretty deeply. With our 45-minute Quick Look of the upcoming Persona PSP release behind us, I think the rest of the boys were hoping to get a little Bufu respite, but alas, Atlus has to go and keep fanning those flames with some pretty strong evidence of a Persona 3 PSP release surfacing out of Japan.
This week's Famitsu is reporting that Persona 3 Portable will hit Japanese store shelves and Japan's PSN on November 1st, the same day as Japan's launch of the PSPgo. While I don't see any mention of when this will be available outside of Japan, there's really no reason to think Atlus wouldn't bring this over at some point. Personally, Persona 3 is where I got my first taste of the series, so it holds a special place in my heart and even though Jeff and I have spent over 80 hours during our Persona 4 Endurance Run, I'm still ready to head back and finish what I started in P3.
It also seems like Atlus is adding some extra content on top of 2008's Persona 3 FES edition. Apparently, you'll be able to choose a lady instead of a male as your main character, which will obviously offer different interactions with the rest of the cast. Some other changes sound like they are being made to make the game mechanics a bit more comparable to Persona 4. There are also reports of visual changes to the Personas no matter what gender your main character is, but if that means I won't be popping myself in the head with an " Evoker" to summon a Jack Frost, then count me out!
So, while we wait for the official word from Atlus, and we all hold our breath for Persona 5, are there any old or new fans ready for some evoking on the go?
Thanks to user PandaShake and rest of the GB community for sending this in. Also, check out this IGN article for a few more details.
Ok, this might be old news to some of you out there, but it's pretty fresh to me and I wanted to bring it to the surface it in case anyone else has missed it. So, with that being said, check out this video:
As little as I know about it, it looks like it's being submitted for Microsoft's Dream-Build-Play Challenge. If so, I hope this makes its way to XBL in the near future, even though furries with swords might not be my favorite thing in the world, this game certainly looks beautiful, much in the style of Odin's Sphere and Muramasa: The Demon Blade. You can find out more about the project from http://www.noogy.com, which also makes it look like an animated feature is in the works. I would love to know more, but for now, I've got to finish TANG!
Thanks to Mr. Gallup for sending this my way.
