Hi everyone! Hope you’re all having a great week ^_^ I haven’t had too much time lately to blog because things have been pretty busy for me at work, but today I finally got a chance to sit down and write. First of all… I wanted to let you know that I’m going to be doing a short interview series this month on my blog about girls who work in the video game industry. I interviewed some awesome ladies and I’m looking forward to sharing their responses with you. So make sure to check it out!
I can’t believe I had almost forgotten that E3 was this week! It wasn’t until my manager texted me saying he’d be flying down to LA that it finally hit me… it’s already the middle of June! This morning we watched Nintendo’s talk on the new Zelda for Wii. By far my favorite part was when Shigeru busted out from behind the backdrop. I’m not really sure what to think of the game yet, because the trailer didn’t show that much. I also felt bad for the presenters because they were obviously experiencing some interference that prevented them from showcasing what seemed to be Shigeru’s main platform: its more “natural” control scheme. But that’s alright, I’m still looking forward to playing… after all, I’ve been waiting for a new Wii Zelda since the day we finished Twilight Princess. So what about you guys… were there any E3 announcements that you were particularly excited about? For me it was all about Zelda: Skyward Sword, the 3DS, and Portal 2.
Last but not least… for anyone who is interested in video game music or indie composers, I’d love for you to check out our video game composer chat from GDC over at the Indiegames blog. (Thank-you Atreus for reminding me about this!) Basically, Jeriaska and Yoshi Miyamoto from Gamasutra rounded up Alec Holowka (Aquaria), DannyB (Super Meat Boy), Baiyon (Pixel Junk Eden), and me, to just talk about music for an hour 🙂
Ah, I have to run now so I’ll save my news about the Plants vs. Zombies soundtrack til next time…
