Mail von Aaron "Apoc" Kaufman bei EALA; kurz gefast: post Eure Fragen an Mike Verdu und Louis Castle für das nächste Podcast bis 21:00 Uhr Heute, Dienstag 7.2.2006. Sie werden vermutlich eher über Visionen und große Ideen rund um Echtzeitstrategie diskutieren, als warum Patch 1.04 für Spiel X nicht ein Grafik-Bug auf der linke Panzerturm erhoben hat.
This Wednesday we will be featuring a Podcast with Mike Verdu, Executive Producer of BFME II, and Louis Castle, VP of Creative Development and co-founder of Westwood Studios, creator of the Command & Conquer franchise. Together in the same room for an exclusive interview! These brilliant RTS creators will discuss the Command & Conquer and The Battle for Middle-earth franchises, looking at the similarities and differences between the two, as well as sharing their vision for the future of RTS games. Louis will also discuss the upcoming Xbox 360 version of The Battle for Middle-earth II, while Mike Verdu will focus on the soon to be released PC version.
This is the first time Louis Castle and Mike Verdu have collaborated to share their vision of RTS games together, so there’s no telling what kind of interesting facts and revelations will be brought to life.
While I will be hosting the Podcast, I wanted to extend an opportunity to the community to submit questions that they would like some answers and insight on. I can not guarantee your questions will be answered during the Podcast, but we will absolutely provide community feedback as best as we can. Please consider information that is already out there in official interviews before submitting your questions as we want to try and keep this Podcast fresh and exciting.
Please submit your questions by Noon (PST) tomorrow (Feb. 7) and please include your name, fansite affiliation, and location. The Podcast will be published later this week thru our official site.
This is a very unique opportunity to hear what two of the men leading the RTS charge at EA have to say about the past, present, and future of their franchises.
I look forward to hearing from you.
