Morning Q&As

  • Age of Conan
    The Age of Conan Q&A on MMORPG.COM chats with Craig Morrison of Funcom about Age of Conan, their upcoming barbaric MMORPG: "Well, we can't second-guess the various rating boards in the different territories, but we certainly expect Conan to be an M rated game in the US. In terms of the other part of the question the answer is pretty much the same as the last question! Conan is being designed to be friendly to as many play styles and timetables as possible. It will certainly be possible to still play the game on people's everyday schedules."
  • Inferno
    The Inferno Q&A on FiringSquad talks with FXLabs CEO Tony Garcia about their coming action/adventure game: "Amanda is a reluctant female heroine who is trapped in a world that is full of deceit and trickery. She has to learn who she can trust, and how to reach her daughter before it is too late and she gets trapped in Hell for eternity. She is not alone on this quest; she learns that she is a “Vessel”. This means she can invite certain characters inside her, allowing them to travel with her through the various circles of hell. Amanda is able to assume the guise of these “hitchhikers” and use there unique abilities to surmount the demonic obstacles in her path. They also offer their diverse perspectives through internal dialogues that help Amanda to make sense of this postmortem world."
  • Introversion
    PC Gamer's Introversion Software Q&A Part 2 of 3 talks further with Chris Delay about the indie developer's work: "Finally, people are sitting up and taking notice of the games we’re trying to produce, and that’s both incredibly gratifying and rewarding for us—we’ve worked so hard to earn some merit in this industry, and it can be a very tough path. In addition to this, IGF enabled us to gain much more credible coverage and exposure, something that was really important in the run up to DEFCON."

Chris Delay's views on steam make interesting reading, for a full sized boxed game that is also going to brick and mortar stores Steam just doesn't seem to make sense - the same product will likely come with more stuff and it'll just keep getting cheaper while steam prices stay static, however as a tool for delivering indie content it seems to work well for both sides.

However you can't say the same for the second hand games on steam for example Jagged Alliance 2 was shipped to steam broken and missing bits they advertised as present, I really don't know why no one kicked up a stink about that because it was everything the naysayers ever warned about comming true.

What the heck?

This is clearly Irrational Games' "The Lost".

Stranger and stranger...

For a promo maybe they could get (pay) the Gov. of California (Ahnold!) to playtest the game.
Too bad Funcom isn't a California company, the Gover-nator would do it for free!
Howabout this - setup a free account for Schwartzennooger, have him be a real in-game character!!!
