    IGDA to investigate ‘crunch time’ activities at Team Bondi

    It probably sounds like fun to make a game like L.A. Noire, right? That may not actually be the case. The game’s Australian developer, Team Bondi, as well as its founder, Brendan McNamara, are about to have to answer a few questions. Brian Robbins, chair of the International Game Developers Association (IGDA), has said that the group would fully investigate claims from developers which indicated several problems at the studio, among them the fact that “crunch time” for the game would typically involve 100-hour work weeks, some staff were omitted from the credits of the game’s final release and many staff members performing multiple jobs at once for extended periods of time. Robbins added that any Team Bondi employees or family members with comments relating to the investigation, positive or negative, should email qol@igda.org. McNamara has repeatedly stated that the policies at Team Bondi are not unfair. Apparently many employees,

    ‘World of Warcraft’ is sort of free-to-play, if you’re into restrictions

    Once upon a time, you could get a trial World of Warcraft account and only play for 14 days. That’s not long enough to really get a feel for it, I think. If you wanted it to go on even longer, you had to pay $20 for a copy of the original game, which would include a 30-day trial period, as well. That helps, but you still have to shell out the cash. Not anymore, thanks to the new WoW free-to-play system. You can play any kind of character (minus those added in Cataclysm) up to level 20…for free. For as long as it takes. Did you get your character to this “max”? Create another. If you’re fine with going from 1-20 over and over, this could be fun for you. And if you decide that you’re willing to make the commitment, $19.99 gets you the original game as well

    Interview with Pro-Gamer, Justin Wong of the Evil Geniuses

    Being an avid fan of fighting games all my life, I’ve always had an interest in the fighting game tournament scene, and pro-gamers who are considered to be the best of the best. I decided to catch up with Justin Wong, one of the best gamers in the country, since the fighting game genre and tournaments for professionals have been on the rise. Justin is considered by and large one of the best Street Fighter players in the country, along with placing well in tournaments for games such as Marvel vs. Capcom 2/3 as well. GamingAngels: We noticed that the Street Fighter series seems to be your game of choice. For you, what sets it apart from other fighting games? Justin Wong: I grew up on Street Fighter at my local arcade. It was the most played and the most competitive in New York so I wanted to be the

    David Jaffe is your PAX Prime keynote speaker

    Every PAX kicks off with a keynote, and PAX Prime will be no different this August. Twisted Metal and God of War‘s David Jaffe is headlining this time. No clue what he’s talking about, but I’m sure we’ll find out soon. Over 100 exhibitors will be at this year’s show, including 2K Games, Activision, BioWare, NCsoft, Capcom and Turbine. If you’re into tabletop games, don’t worry — exhibitors like Wizards of the Coast will also be on hand. As far as activities go, Microsoft is hosting Halo Fest, concerts are happening every night, competitions will be held and there are constant panels. (Really, you’ll probably find something interesting in every timeslot.) PAX Prime is scheduled for August 26-28 at the Seattle Convention Center. If you don’t have a pass yet, you’re not getting one, because they’re completely sold out. None of this last-minute stuff this time. They’re all gone for
