    I am at the show too, I am always willing to investigate stuff to help PAers.

    Not necessarily the right thread, but might any PA folks at the show be interested in a meet-up at some point, either during the show or after-hours?

    Will the time-travel elements be a gameplay mechanic? Will you be able to move back and forth through time at will to solve puzzles, or is it merely a story device, with time-travel events occuring at specific moments throughout the narrative?

    That would be insomniac, not Sucker Punch.

    I would, but... I'm going to bed now and won't see my computer again until I'm done with it! If you want to come up with a plan and let me know, you can find me on Tuesday or Wednesday right next to the NOA and Sony booths!

    Stop by the Atlus booth to say hello and play some Steambot Chronicles!

    Dev: Ubisoft...Montreal, right?

    SC Conviction: How much of what was initially shown years ago has been retained? Any at all?

    EDIT: Also for Conviction: Any multiplayer?...if yes, cookies to elaborate?

    ...EDIT 2: Same Bat Game, Same Bat Developer - this is if you don't mind digging into them a bit: Was Sam's redesign a direct result of reaction from fans?

    I've got some others probably coming, just need more time for them to percolate.

    If you happen to go to Zipper Interactive to find out information about MAG, see if Andy Beaudoin is there (lead designer). If so, tell him his band rocks, he has a lovely singing voice, and his Mom plays a sweet fiddle. :)

    Anyone from ubisoft:

    Tell me that the Beyond Good and Evil 2 footage was not faked and I won't shank you.

    Also, is it coming to pc?

    Edit: Also, Tim Schaefer:

    Why did you choose to neglect the pc, the platform that was home to so many of your games, for Brutal Legend?

    (you can see a pattern here)

    Arrrg six hours later I come back to this thread, see my post and boggle. I've had inFamous on the mind lately. I edit the post, scroll down... >.< and get called on my foible.

    But yeah I am genuinely curious about the question if you have the time.

    Golden Sun DS:
    Will this new game have a silent protagonist? It was weird when the silent protagonist was switched from Isaac to Felix between the two games, making them speak in one game and not the other.

    Can any details be revealed about the game's story or changes to gameplay?

    Nintendo regarding Super Mario Galaxy 2

    Will it have an orchestra soundtrack?

    (If they say no, keep punching Reggie until they say yes. :P )

    If yes, is it the same orchestra used in the original Galaxy?

    I asked, but I didn't have a chance to interview them I was too busy. The answer is both.

    Also to the rest of you I'm not just going to be throwing out answers like this unless I talked to the person in question but didn't actually get a chance to interview them. I've been able to ask some of the questions, but I've just been so busy I haven't even had a chance to play any games yet. I am so totally brain fried right now. Anyway we are doing a lot of filming and as soon as everything is done being edited and we can start broadcasting online.

    Another one for Nintendo. I'm just not sure how to word this.

    What is going on with the Kirby console game?!

    Didn't this thing exist in the Gamecube days, get delayed, then was never heard of for years, and still there's nothing?

    OK E3 is over, I'm tired and smelly, but I asked a lot of your questions, or as many as I could realistically ask. It will take a few days to edit all the footage and upload it, but when it's up I'll link it and you guys can all watch it and look for your questions being asked.

    Looking through the list I'm noticing a lot I forgot, I printed out all your questions and tried to memorize as many as I could, but there was just, so much that I a lot of it slipped my mind. Also on a few big games that you guys asked questions for, I just didn't have time to check them or couldn't ask questions. Ubisoft was told us they were booked solid for Assassins Creed 2, EA didn't have anybody free for Mass Effect 2 to talk to, etc.

    Oh wow I didn't even notice the bump. Ok ok, here's the answer to everything going on right now. I've gotten PMs, and IMs and notes, etc asking when all the questions are going to be answered and I'm chomping at the bit to see it all myself, but here's the deal.

    We got over 15 hours of footage at E3 and only one guy, ONE is editing it all together along with all the b-roll that the companies gave us, as well as editing hours of footage for some SF4 tourney that I wasn't at. I feel kinda bad for the guy and the amount of work he has on his plate right now, but he's working hard on editing all the footage, it's been more work than he could handle at the time. So the bad news is that it might take another week or two (which means it won't exactly be timely with E3 being over a month and all, but just lesson learned for next year and editing crew planned), the good news is that there will be hours upon hours of interview footage all over E3 with quite a few of your questions being asked, the ones that I could remember to ask anyway. I've been waiting just as much as everyone else, I mean there is nothing I could do to speed up the editing process, I was just the on camera talent.

    Though there is one video nugget I can offer to tide you guys over. Here is a single interview clip from our time with EA that was webcast live. Just a couple of things to keep in mind though, this is low quality, unedited, raw footage that was live webcast over the already stressed EA network, the actual footage that's going up on LAGtv will all be high quality and edited together with game footage and such. This is one of the only bits of raw footage I've even seen myself, but the guy editing everything says that he's been really impressed so far with the rest of the footage and says it's going to be great.

    http://ufragtv.com/recorded/video/20933

    Keep in mind that this event was my first time being the focus on camera interviewing people and such, as well as my first time broadcasting anything live. I'm learning the trade so bare with me and offer up any suggestions you have so that I can improve. Mind you once the real footage goes up and I can watch it I can critique myself as well, I already noticed a few things I want to change about myself from this little bit of raw footage.

    Anyway the moment I hear that the footage is all done being edited and put up I'll let you guys know. Now since there is 15 hours of footage (I don't know what it is going to be condensed down to), I don't know how I would link to everybodies questions individually. So I'm just going to link to the main interview section and you can pick the interview that corresponds to your questions I believe.

    Bottom line though, when everything is done editing and up, it's going to be awesome. I even got plugs from a few celebs like Cliff Blizinski (awesome guy to hang with btw) and Vern Troyer. :D

    Edit: BTW the clip is being hosted on a sister site called Ufrag, which is basically a hosting/streaming site like JustinTV and Ustream, but dedicated directly to gaming. It's worth checking out, and for example a lot of people here like to do (Let's Play)s where they cronical their experiences through a game for PAers, well you could also brodcast live and chat about it while you play.
