Been meaning to get this up for a while. I have a lot of stuff to giveaway that I snagged for you guys at E3. I’ll be updating this forum topic with a new item each day until it’s all gone. So check back daily! Just reply to that forum topic with the item you want and I’ll pick a winner at random the next morning. Good Luck!
I managed to get a interview with Brian Singh, who is a technical game designer at thatgamecompany. This was a impromptu interview, so it’s not very organized & it was loud in the room. So I apologize for that.
I didn’t get a chance to play the demo before they started to close things down. But it did watch somebody play most of the demo. The demo starts with a low view of the desert and you can see the sand crystals sparkle and it’s a very stunning visually. When you walk around on the desert it reacts kind of like water, it ripples when you go past it. Instead of me just rambling on, I’ll just let the interview above explain it in more detail. But it’s going to be a must buy for me. It looks like another winner from thatgamecompany.

Here’s a list of some things we discussed:
The line for Uncharted 3 at E3 was always long, which was a good sign. More so, I bet, because you got a cool t-shirt and a code to unlock gear in Uncharted 3. The game mode we played was called Hunter Mode. There was an offensive and defensive side. When you’re on the offensive side, your goal is to grab treasure and deliver it to the treasure box. Defensive side, of course, tries to stop you. There are multiple treasures in the level, I’d guess about 5 of them. After the time runs down, you switch from offensive to defensive (or vis versa). Two levels were available at E3, both were fun and pretty large.
You have 1 buddy in the game, which is highlighted by a box over their name, so you want to stick by them, because they are friends with benefits! For example, you have greater firepower when you are together. I’m sure there are other benefits, but I didn’t notice any. One really cool thing is, when you kill an enemy, you can both stand over the body and high five each other! I seem to recall you can sometimes revive your buddy as well. Not sure if your buddy is random or if you can choose them. Seems like, in this demo, it was random. I hope in the final game, you can choose your buddy.
The line for Starhawk was never very long at E3 for some odd reason. I usually just had to wait for the current game to finish for my turn at the game. When you spawn, you get a top down view of the battlefield and you get to choose where to drop your pod in your home base. You can steer it slightly when it’s falling in mid-air. What’s cool is you can actually kill others when you land! I never got to see this in person, though. After you land, you press square to burst out of your pod.
