GWJ Conference Call Episode 91

Conference Call

Wii Fit Fat Bastards, Battlefield Bad Company, Ticket To Ride, EA's Scott Blackwood Tells Us All About Developing Skate For The Wii Balance Board, A New Audio Sponsor, PS3 Mea Culpa...Kind Of, Your Emails and more!

Since the announcement of the Wii Balance Board, we've been sure some kind of skateboarding game would follow soon after. Lucky for us, it's the team behind EA's detailed, realistic Skate franchise taking the first shot at it. Julian grills Scott on developing for the board, how far along in development they are and how it all works. We also have a new audio sponsor from Mike Eberhardt and an audio email from the Lord of Leisure himself!

To contact us, email [email protected]! Send us your thoughts on the show, pressing issues you want to talk about or whatever else is on your mind. You can even send a 30 second audio question or comment (MP3 format please) if you're so inclined.

Is Gorgeous Rob Gorgeous the long lost brother of The Stig? Sounds like Sam Fisher knows something the rest of us don't ;).

But we all know the Stig's American cousin is fat and lives in florida. Canadian cousin?

I guess perhaps that is why we heard so much. I didn't think about it like that before and I didn't think it was possible for Sony to continue to make a balls-up in such a fashion but judging from opinions here, I guess it's deserved. Guess I'll stick with the PC for a while longer (considering games are now forthcoming which are making me drool....Diablo.....hint hint....)

Indeed...

By the way, I "second" that sentiment about your piece, yo...well done!

I was just about to ask that, samfisher was totally channeling the Hamster there, 'Some say... etc etc' Sweet submission.

PS3 hate? What? You guys have been very nice about the 2 decent games on the platform. And saying 'this problem is about to be fixed' regarding the friends list and all isn't a defense. It should have been fixed in the first update, come back to the party when it is fixed.

*edit* Oh wait, they have finally, oh, but it locks up the console. Doh.

And incidentally I'm also hoping that Sony does manage to make a comeback with the PS3, but Like Mr Sands I keep getting disappointed.

Swearing, hmm. While I sympathise with parents not wanting their children to be exposed to Rob on a rampage, your 9 year old is probably using worse words at school.

samfisher, just the mention of your voicemail got my hopes up. The mail itself just ubercharged them. When I get back to London again, just ask for more belly rubbing, you deserve it.

Is Gorgeous Rob Gorgeous the long lost brother of The Stig?

Some people say he can shoot hate right out of his eyes, and that he gets his maple syrup by biting into trees. All we know is he's called Gorgeous Rob Borges.

Yes, I channeled the power of Top Gear, for some reason it seemed to fit.

Great show and great references.

Now I'm even more depressed I'm not going to GenCon.

They mentioned hoop and stick! Take a drink!
