GameBanshee Interviews

Postby Brother None » Thu Sep 06, 2007 9:54 am

Interviews

This thread is for keeping track of interviews: what we're looking for, sharing good ideas, discussing who we're on good terms with and who less so.

So, any starting ideas.

General interview with Afterfall? The game's shaping up ok, but their team is a pain in the neck to get in contact with and to get to keep their promises.

An introduction interview with the Legend: Forge Your Destiny. It doesn't look that interesting, but it's getting some attention here and there, might be a good chance to sneak in through the cracks.

Cornering Brian Fargo to get him to drop some hints about his intentions with the Wasteland franchise. Might be too early, might not be very interesting in the end.

Drakensang; I might get a via via translated interview with the Drakensang people. Not sure what I'd ask 'em, tho'

I think it would be a good idea to maintain a list of the interviews that are currently being worked on and the interviews we should work on getting. At the moment, I have questions submitted for:

Mass Effect
Elveon

These are the games I think would make good choices for upcoming interviews:

Auto Assault (about its demise)
Avencast: Rise of the Mage
Dark Messiah of Might and Magic: Elements
Deus Ex (if we can track down some original developers)
Drakensang: The Dark Eye
Dungeons & Dragons Online (about its current state and upcoming plans)
Dungeon Hero
EverQuest 1 or 2 (about their current state and upcoming plans)
Fable 2
Fallout 3 (is this a conflict of interest for you?)
Guild Wars 2
Hellgate: London
King's Bounty: The Legend
Legends of Norrath: Oathbound
Mythos
Project RPB (Pirahna Bytes' next game)
Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords (why not?)
Rise of the Argonauts
Space Siege
Spiderweb Software (any of their games)
System Shock 2 (if we can track down some original developers)
The Broken Hourglass
The Lord of the Rings Online (about its current state and upcoming plans)
The Witcher
Ultima Online (about its current state and upcoming plans)
Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning
ZeniMax Online's Project (Bethesda's new sister division)

Err... I must have been typing the other thread while you were doing this one. Afterfall or a possible Wasteland followup are fine with me. I think Fargo would actually talk about it if you started the interview as a Wasteland retrospective or something.

Merge with my thread, please

Fallout 3 is not a conflict of interest, because Bethesda is not answering NMA's questions anyway. Don't expect anything from them, tho', especially not if it's me contacting them

Well, I could try setting it up and we could compile a list of questions here. I'd just put us both down for credit on the interview. I don't think Bethesda would get pissed off unless we asked questions specifically designed to put the game down or if we submitted the questions through GameBanshee and then posted the answers on NMA (why they wouldn't do an interview there is beyond me, though). If we just do a standard, casual interview with them and post it on GameBanshee as usual I don't see any reason why they'd have an issue with it.

In the meantime I'll do some preliminary research into the Auto Assault and Wasteland 2 interview ideas

I need some time to get to know some games for good questions, anyway
