Exclusive Interview: Furi Creative Director Emeric Thoa & Executive Producer Audrey Leprince

At dinner, some people don’t want to eat their entre, they just want to skip to dessert. And it’s the same with gaming; some people don’t want to have to fight their way through tons of grunts just to get to the boss battle. It’s for those people that The Game Bakers are making the upcoming third-person action game Furi (PlayStation 4, PC). Earlier this week, I had a chance to see the game in action, and to ask Emeric Thoa (the game’s creative director, producer, and game designer) and Audrey Leprince (its executive producer and writer) about how the game is played, what story it’s going to tell, and how they got Takashi Okazaki — who wrote and drew the original Afro Samurai manga and worked on both animes and the first, but not the second, Afro Samurai game — to design the Furi‘s unique-looking characters.

Exclusive Interview: Tetris Ultimate Producer Adrian Price

You’d think after thirty years that there’d be nothing new to do with Tetris. Which is why you’re not a game developer. In honor of the game’s thirtieth anniversary, Ubisoft have released Tetris Ultimate on the 3DS, with versions coming next year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation Vita, and PC. Though in talking to the game’s producer, Adrian Price, while Tetris may have hit the big 3-0, it’s still young, it’s still young.

Exclusive Interview: “The Amazing Spider-Man 2” Mobile Game’s Tatiana Nahai


With The Amazing Spider-Man 2 coming to theaters on May 2nd, it was inevitable that there’d be a video game adaptation as well. But along with the one Beenox are making for the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, the WiiU, and the 3DS, there’s a unique one coming to iOS, Android, and, later on, Windows devices, too. I spoke to Gameloft’s Tatiana Nahai about what it took to bring Spidey and his super friends to smaller screens.

Exclusive Interview: Skylanders SWAP Force & Beyond: Two Souls Composer Lorne Balfe


You’d have a hard time finding two games with as little in common as Skylanders SWAP Force and Beyond: Two Souls. Unless you pay attention to their music, since both feature the musical stylings of composer Lorne Balfe, who’s previously worked on 2009’s Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, 2011’s Crysis 2, and, last year, both Assassin’s Creed III and Skylanders: Giants. And yet, when it comes to Skylanders SWAP Force and Beyond: Two Souls, Balfe also thinks they have little in common, which is how he likes it.

Star Wars Pinball for the 3DS Review


As someone who loves Star Wars, pinball, and video games, but is not a big fan of playing games on systems with tiny screens, the idea of playing Star Wars Pinball for the 3DS is…well, let’s just say even C-3PO could feel the conflict within me. And he can’t feel anything.

But while Star Wars Pinball for the 3DS has its issues — most of which, admittedly, have more to do with the 3DS than the game itself — it’s still fairly addictive.

Skylanders SWAP Force Review


Skylanders SWAP Force (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, WiiU, Wii, 3DS) is the third installment in what is easily the most popular new series since the first Call Of Duty came out in 2003. But what if, like me, you’ve never played a Skylanders game before, or only played one of the others ones briefly, and are intrigued by all the positive press?

As it turns out, you shouldn’t believe the hype. Well, okay, maybe a little.

Sonic Lost World Preview


With a little more than a month before it comes to the WiiU and 3DS, Sega held a media tour for Sonic Lost World where they showed off some new aspects of this upcoming game.

But while the developers are obviously striving to appeal to longtime fans of this series, they’re also adding new ways for this speed freak to satisfying his ring addiction.
