Here’s a quick web update.
We’re less than a week away from Mothership Zeta, and there’s a pair of new interviews with DLC Producer Jeff Gardiner at Go! Gaming Giant and Talking About Games. Here’s a look at a snippet from the latter:
What was the motivation behind taking players onto an alien spacecraft for Mothership Zeta? Did someone on the team have an encounter?
Jeff Gardiner: We thought it would be a very unique environment to explore, a far cry from the dust ravaged wastes of DC. The lead designer, Emil Pagliarulo, and I are interested in Alien conspiracy theory… There’s a lot of information to sift through on the internet, while neither of us is quite sure what to believe it makes for interesting coffee conversation.
Sites continue to give away Point Lookout Codes. GameFocus is the latest with a contest running through tomorrow.
In preview coverage, NowGamer has a new preview for Brink. Here’s a sample:
“Your character will be entirely user-created, giving you the chance to be totally unique. Our short demonstration pointed to a customisation engine that appeared to ensure your character looked damn cool no matter what you did with it â€“ quite a feat.”
For more on Brink, check out E3Coverage.com’s interview with Richard Ham.
Finally, if you haven’t checked out the trailer for The Book of Eli — starring Denzel Washington — you might want to give it a look. On several sites, including Kotaku, comparisons to Fallout 3 are already being made.
Updates: This morning on Kotaku, I spotted some cool Fallout “accessories.” Learn how to put them together at The Weekly Geek.
Elsewhere, you can learn more about the technology for Brink at PC Games Hardware — who has an interview with Arnout van Meer — Splash Damage’s Technical Director.
