Kombo Breaker - Episode 50: We Celebrate 50 Episodes With John Davison (Gamepro), Jeff And Dan (Totally Rad Show), And James Stevenson (Insomniac Games)
This week on Kombo Breaker we're celebrating our fiftieth episode which means that we're pulling out all the stops. First we check in with John Davison to discuss how he plans to relaunch the GamePro magazine and website brand early next year and how gaming journalism as a whole is evolving to meet the needs of the community, plus ancient composite reviewer Scary Larry is invoked. Then gaming meets film with Jeff Cannata and Dan Trachtenberg of the Totally Rad Show as we discuss why movies that become games and games that become movies both, as a whole, need work. Finally, we talk with James Stevenson of Insomniac Games about Ratchet and Clank: A Crack in Time. We cover the return of everyone's favorite Lombax, the amount of work that goes into writing and recording dialog for the twisted Dr. Nefarious, the origin of Clank's time-based puzzles, the greatness of the Insomniac Moon, and weapons that were left on the cutting room floor. Set aside a few hours for this episode. We're running into overtime here. Download this week's mammoth episode directly from Kombo or subscribe via iTunes.
