Evening Q&As

  • Mark Rein
    The Mark Rein Q&A Part Two on Computer and Video Games continues their talk with the outspoken Epic Veep about integrated graphics, Wii, the DS, and Vista: "Well I think Vista will ultimately be good for games, it's going to get us a lot closer to the hardware, much in the same way you can get significantly more power out of an Xbox than the same piece of parts configured into a PC. And that's partially because Windows wasn't designed for games originally, so one of the things they've done is they now have Direct X powering the desktop, so we have less competition between the GDI layer and Direct X for resources. That's good. On the other hand I'm bitterly disappointed that they're shipping a 32-bit version of Vista; I think that's very short-sighted, I really don't see the point of it. I think they kind of capitulated to Intel; you know Intel was going along really well making 64-bit chips until their original core chips which are 32-bit, and then I think Intel put the squeeze on Microsoft and said 'we're still going to do some 32-bit chips, you've got to do a 32-bit version'."
  • Hellgate London
    The Video Interview With Bill Roper on the Forums is described as "a 24-minute, candid interview conducted with Bill Roper in the back of a van during his trip to China a month ago."
  • Legend: Hand of God
    RPG Vault's Legend: Hand of God Q&A talks with Jan Beuck of master creating about their upcoming action/RPG: "Legend - Hand of God is a 3D action role-playing game in a new fantasy setting. After completing our work on Restricted Area in 2004, we decided to stay in the same genre, but instead of developing a sequel, we wanted to explore a new scenario. What sets Legend further apart is that we have more than 10 times the budget, an experienced team, and a new, outstanding engine."
  • The Rock
    Celebrity Q&A Actor The Rock admits he's a gaming geek (thanks Neutronbeam) is a Reuters Q&A with the wrestler-turned-actor also known as Dwayne Johnson touching on Spyhunter: Nowhere to Run and his long-standing love of games: "Hmmm. If I could buy something that I just can't buy it would be time. There is so much to do and so many responsibilities. I always makes sure that I have my Xbox set up wherever I go. I have one in my living room, in my office, one in my trailer. So whenever it hits me, I can play the game Madden '06 or '07. If I could play every day I would but I just don't have the time. I know it is a little excessive to have one in every room just in case it hits me."
