State of Play with Brandon Bales: Kellee Santiago, Part Two

Here's our second episode of State of Play with Brandon Bales!

In this episode, we discuss with Kellee Santiago more about thatgamecompany's "Big Idea," as well as pretty much everything there is to say about their last hit game, Flower.

And next week: we discuss their delicious upcoming PSN-exclusive, Journey!

State of Play with Brandon Bales: Kellee Santiago, Part One

Welcome to the first episode of State of Play.

This show is a new voice in the gaming journalism world. Our interviews are long-form, personal, and in-depth. You should check it out, as I don't think there's much like it on the web right now.

Our first interview is with Kellee Santiago of thatgamecompany, creators of the iconic Flow, Flower, and (the upcoming) Journey. In it, we discuss their company, their philosophies, and their first game, Cloud. If you like what you see, stay tuned: upcoming interviews will include Jonathan Blow and David Jaffe.

I am so super-excited to launch this show, as it's been a real labor of love.

Cosplay: Omi Gibson as Cloe Walsh from No More Heroes

Cosplay: Omi Gibson as Cloe Walsh from No More Heroes

Omi Gibson is known for her stunning Metal Gear Solid cosplay photo shoots. Sometimes she takes a break and tries something else like No More Heroes. As these photos show, whatever she tackles is no less spectacular. These are just some of the Cloe Walsh pics she has posted. Be sure to take a look at her website to see the rest of them as well as her entire collection of daring and authentic cosplay shoots. You will not be disappointed.

A Boy and His Game: Papo & Yo and Vander Caballero

Papo & Yo Screenshot

Now that E3 is a few weeks cold, I'd like to write a little about my personal game of the show, and the man behind it, Vander Caballero, who is inextricable from his pet project. I didn't go into the convention thinking about winners and losers, but Minority Inc.'s Papo & Yo was a definite winner for me, one that has stayed on my mind continuously since the show's end.

Video: Windows: LittleBigPlanet 2 Edition

Now they're recreating (sort of) operating systems in LittleBigPlanet 2? What's next? OS/2? Or maybe some productivity programs like MS Office or Adobe Photoshop? It doesn't sound that far-fetched.

Style Savvy Review

Strong Enough for a Man, Made for a Woman

HIGH Witnessing customer after customer go gaga over my ensembles.

LOW Realizing that their taste was dictated almost exclusively by brand.

WTF There are two men in the whole game: One is the store owner/love interest, the other is his butler.
