Cheats and Walkthroughs
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon has been aggressively covering videogames. The show has already reported on E3 2009 and interviewed Double Fine's excellent Tim Schafer on Brutal Legend. The gaming goodness isn't stopping there though. 1Up's Sam Kennedy (Mr. Kennedy!!!) has reported that Microsoft's Kudo Tsunoda will be on tonight's show to demo Project Natal.
I'm thrilled that Late Night with Jimmy Fallon is giving a lot of time to videogames. The exposure is brilliant for the business. Schafer and Tsunoda are both fantastic spokesmen for gaming. Certainly the exposure is great for Double Fine, EA, and Microsoft, but everyone involved in gaming should be happy that the industry is getting this type of coverage.
How do you feel about a late show covering games? Is it a sign of how far the business has come? Do you think it's just the flavor of the week? Or is it simply a matter of Fallon's team (hi Gavin!) being the right age and the right demographic? Most importantly, can Fallon possibly use Project Natal without looking like a tool?
