    Part 3: Interview with Brutal Legend’s Tim Schafer

    Here’s the last part of our interview with Tim Schafer. It’s been pretty epic so far. Here we go! Q: As the world opens up beyond the tutorial, can you give examples of some of the missions in there and will there be cool metal stuff to unlock or uncover? A: The references are woven into it. If you are familiar with metal you’ll see bits and pieces mixed together and placed in the world. Some missions are just Eddie and his ax focusing on combat. On other missions you start building your army and use the dpad to control these guys. Eventually you have such a big army that you have a whole army on the battlefield at once and you get to pick and choose which ones to add to the battle.

    Japanese 360 owners start petition over PS3 Tales of Vesperia

    Japanese Xbox 360 owners feel jipped and they are starting a petition over it. They seem to be upset that Tales of Vesperia used to be a 360 exclusive but that it’s coming to the Playstation 3 in Japan soon. The petition has 560 signatures. “The games should not be dispersed across multiple platforms, they should be consolidated onto one platform [i.e. Xbox 360]. The games should be complete and properly made. From now on, the porting of titles like Tales of Symphonia and Tales of Vesperia should be abolished. An official apology should be made to Xbox 360 users for the abnormal number of additions made to Vesperia only a year after its Xbox 360 release.” [source via sankakucomplex.com] Follow
