Great stuff! And here in Georgia, it lasted 35 cards past midnight! What did you all think?


P.S. I got to talk to Chris and Aaron! :)

The online audio ended before the phone. But I recorded the last minutes with my mic. Horrible quality of course. Some lovely words from AC and CJ.

EDIT:
Nevermind! The site download has it all!

Thanks for setting this up, good times all around and a sweet little show.

Edit: If anyone can post a link to the whole thing, I'd appreciate it. Lost the feed for several minutes right in the middle.

The whole show is up now.

I'm off to sleep. Thanks everyone for participating. We'll try and get the guys back the day of release like we're doing with a couple other games and their designers.

I take it that cute american girl was you Jen :D.. nice work.

I wish I could have spoken with them :( I would have let them know they're the reason why I even work in the industry today too lol. If they go to GDC with a Tex Murphy I am SOOooo going! It'll cost a $#it load but it'd be worth it.

The host did call me cute, but I don't know if it was a compliment or not. I messed it up the first time because I forgot about the delay between the phone and the internet. :cry:

Still I can't believe I spoke to Chris Jones and Aaron Conners. My hands were shaking when I hung up. :D I wasn't brave enough to ask another question on the same call, as being allowed to speak one was enough of a gift.

I hope the do come back! An hour and a half just isn't enough. I have a few more questions.

Oh, and I loved what the host had to say about his experience with the Overseer DVD. So very familiar! :lol:

I wasn't around last night to listen to it, so if there's a link to the recording, or a transcript or something I'd be interested in checking it out.

Otherwise, any chance someone could summarize any of the big points?

I would be the one calling in from Montreal.

I can't believe he spent nearly two years in my city and I didn't know about it! I suspect he was here while I was gone though. Still!

Well, for one, the game will be sold from their trunk in a McDonald parking lot near you after midnight :P

Unless I'm mistaken, I believe Aaron still works for Ubisoft, and alternates with SLC spending roughly a half to two thirds of his time up in Montreal - this taken from one of his earlier posts last year :)

Additionally, I had no idea how high-pitched and silly my voice sounds until I re-listened to the interview :oops:

It was Set to be an Hour and A Half originally {90 Minutes}, they ran over by about 6 minutes of their scheduled time limit that's all...

They should have scheduled it for 2 Hours... :D
