45w ago - Ghostbot Co Founder and Director Alan Lau has posted up a video today proclaiming that the Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time animated short steals the show!
Below are the details, as follows: When Ghostbot was first approached by Sanzaru to work on the next installment of Sly Cooper, I had to do a double take. I was already a big fan of the original games, and I couldn't believe what a great honor it was to have an opportunity to work on it.
Being a lifelong gamer myself, I have a lot of respect for Sucker Punch and the Sly Cooper story. There are legions of devoted Sly fans, so we wanted to make sure our addition to Sly's journey respected the fun and charm of the original games.
At the same time, we wanted to push the quality of the art and animation to the next level as well as bring the audience something they hadn't seen before.
Working on the 2D cinematics for the game with Sanzaru was loads of fun. One of our goals was to convey the twists and turns of their story in an entertaining way. We also wanted to inject some real thought and dimension into each character's personality.
277w ago - Now here's an interesting one, a man robbed a video game store claiming that he needed a PS3 in order to have his family released as they were being held hostage.
The suspect asked the clerk to call the police as his family needed help, but the suspect fled the scene shortly after. Oh, and he was carrying a gun...
To quote: The suspect went into the store, picked out a video game and approached the counter to check out. He pulled out a small handgun and told the store clerk that his family was being held hostage and that he needed a PlayStation 3 in order to have them released.
As he left the store, the suspect told the clerk to call the police, because his family needed help.
Police arrived shortly thereafter, but the suspect had fled the scene.
