Developing Cinematics For Dragon Age
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment

BioWare has released a new interview with Jonathan Perry, cinematic lead for the Dragon Age RPG series. The developer discusses working at BioWare, creating cinematics for the games, and offered some advice to those looking to enter the game industry.

Do you have any advice for those wishing to get into the video game industry?

Make something! Make characters, textures, animations, machinima, a mod or whatever you’re interested in doing. There are lots of easily accessible game engines and toolsets out there to play with. The results might not be very good at first, but keep making things and they’ll get better. I love it when candidates have a big portfolio of work that shows they’re passionate about what they’re making and would be doing it even if they weren’t trying to get a job in the industry. And play lots of games! Be able to discuss a variety of games and what they did well or what could have been improved.

LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

AppleTell has posted a new review of Feral Interactive's LEGO Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. Developed by TT Games and LucasArts, it is the latest in the line of LEGO titles to be brought to the Mac by Feral Interactive.

Let’s get the guts out of the way: the cartoon is loosely adapted into a series of action sequences and puzzles where movie characters are transformed into Lego minifigs. You run around collecting lego blocks and fighting using weapons and special abilities. Jedi can use the force and slice with their lightsabers, other characters can climb, use blasters, unlock doors, and open new areas for exploration. You can destroy furniture for more lego blocks or to construct ladders and machines to help you along your way. If you’ve played one Lego movie game, you’re familiar with the mechanic and also the major shortcoming: since these games originated as platformers, the controls are kinda clunky when they come over to the PC.
Check out the full review at the site below.
