I'm really excited to see this game at PAX, It was my most anticipated game at last year's PAX but all I got was a poster.

Cool beans. I remember Jeff's interview with him being really good.

Edit: Oh wow, this one's in the office.

Jeff is sporting the pebble.

Patrick, you must remove that excuse for a beard, in deference to the magnificence of Ken's.

I still love Ken Levine. His enthusiasm is infectious. He sounds really tired here, unsurprisingly.

Ken Levine would make a great character on The Walking Dead that shows up and gets killed off in the same episode.

He's just got the red shirt look about him.

On the main page "Infinite" is spelt wrong. It is correct when you click to go to the video page but on the main site it is not.

For a site that focuses primarily on video content, the video player sure is shitty. I wanted to watch this on the site for once rather than downloading it and watching it through VLC, but this thing kept... wow. It's amazing really that it's so bad.

Does anyone else think Patrick came off as the little kid who kept piping in when the adults were talking?

Is he drinking his own kool-aid now? I'm not sure that's how it works.

Also, cue Patrick interrupting guest in 3...2...

@npfeifer: Yeah, Patrick felt like a fifth wheel the whole interview.

Jeff on-point, though. Very slick performance, enjoyable discussion.

Jeff was great, you can tell he really wanted to go into an in depth discussion on details but couldnt. Seeing his emotion about the game has me pretty excited for it.

The facial hair on display here is tragic. Maybe if all three of them worked on one beard they could squeeze-grow a Van Dyke by E3?

Okay, now that I've got that out of my system I can enjoy the rest of this interview. It's actually quite interesting so far, if slightly awkward.

Don't like having more than 1 person interviewing, takes away the flow.

For example Levine is giving his answer and Patrick interupts and answers the question himself, he should pay attention to how Jeff does it, he has been the best interviewer in the industry for a while.

It seemed like it took forever for Patrick to bring that little discussion about the t.v show Girls back to bioshock. Seems like odd dots to try to connect.

I really love the way Jeff has been around for a while and these developers really have a connection with him where it's not just another fuck off interview.
