Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
For those that don't know, three main points:
1) not by the original makers
2) visuals done by Square Enix
3) it's a prequel
The trailer is here
My brief thoughts on each of those points...
1) I'm not really that upset by this. I'm not someone who believes that the original creator of a series also has the best idea of what to do with it. Deus Ex 2 is a good example of this.
2) This I'm excited about. SE has recently proven to me that the one thing they continually excell at is graphics and visual design. If SE did more graphics and less story, I think the world would be a better place.
I picked up a copy of this game so I could play it for the first time in 6 years. Goddamn it is a consuming game. With just the single player I've been spending hours a day on it. I feel drained. Amazingly how well this has held up.
Cause I'll eat you.
(This is a picture of me being a zombie extra in a local film. This was the day I got the cops called on me when I went to use the bathroom at a Burger King... in full makeup)
Having worked with a publishing firm in the past I can tell you that most often books get rejected for technical reasons and not because the book is actually terrible.
Seriously, though, go read stories of Vonnegut or Twain or Hemingway's publishing history... every great writer has faced rejection.
Just keep on trying! I'll be the first to put down money for a copy of your book when it's released!
I'm putting out a review for it tomorrow. I played it when it was fresh off the Blu-Ray Burner, but it's taken me a long time to put the proper words to it.
So what do you think I'll be giving it? I bet people here have got me pretty pegged...
