Raphael Barent, Game Play Programmer from Ubisoft, previewed the intricate story and details behind Splinter Cell: Conviction last week at E3 2009.

The part that'll set off gamer conspiracy theorists --no, it's not anything regarding console exclusivity-- comes somewhere around the middle of the video when Barent says something seemingly innocuous. For those of you who played Splinter Cell: Double Agent, you'll remember that Sam Fisher's daughter died in a car accident. Or did she?

Before you talk amongst yourselves and start picking apart the meaning of his words, watch the interview!

Some of the supporting voice cast from Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, give us an interview at E3 2009, talking about their roles in the game.

Emily Rose (Elena Fisher), says that she's relieved that Naughty Dog has offiicially unveiled Elena's return for the sequel. "In the first game, she's a lot younger, she's a lot more naive, and she looks at things as being very possible, and in the second (game), has seen murders and adventure...the way that any person grows, you see that in her. She's a little bit more hesitant, a little more cynical," Rose says.

Actors Claudia Black (Chloe Frazer), and Robin Atkin-Downs (Tenzin) also provide some perspective on the way the game has changed through the eyes of their characters in it. Take a look, and answer the question below:

 

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves Supporting Cast Interview »


Uncharted director Amy Hennig has said in interviews that the game's characters are visually inspired by their voices more than any particular famous Hollywood faces. Would you agree?

 







We met up with Patrick Bach, Senior Producer from Electronic Arts, to talk about what we can expect in Battlefield: Bad Company 2,such as better vehicles and more multiplayer options.

"I think the team play aspect of the game is key to what we're building," said Bach. "Battlefield has been around for quite some time -- ever since [Battlefield] 1942 we've been focusing a lot on team play in different ways. And this time, on the console, we're actually making it into a true Battlefield experience by having the team play be a part of everything in the game."

Nolan North, who plays hero Nathan Drake in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, gives us an interview about his perspective on the role he plays in the game, Nathan's job as the hero, and the style of the game itself, in this E3 2009 interview.

"It's interesting to come to E3 and walk around and say 'I did that,' but then it blows your mind to see what the animators have done," North says.

Madden NFL 10 Wii E3 2009 Associate Designer InterviewEA associate designer Yuri Bialdskursky previews their latest Wiimote-wielding football game Madden NFL 10. How will this year's game be different?

"We have five different body types and each one of those body types personifies the position that it's meant to capture," said Bialdskursky. "Your quarterbacks have a very heroic build, your runningbacks short and stocky, wide receivers are lanky at best -- they're meant to communicate that speed [and the] characteristics of the position they play."

Darksiders E3 2009 Creative Director InterviewJoe Madureira goes over the concept of Darksiders: Wrath of War, showing us many gameplay elements, as well as a the premise for the game.

At first glance, the game looks like a God of War clone... not so: "There's so much exploration. Not just combat, but there's puzzles to solve," explains Madureria. "There's areas you can unlock as War grows in strength. It's setup more so like an adventure game than a straight-up combat game."

The Conduit E3 2009 Developer Walkthrough »


 

High Voltage Software’s upcoming sci-fi FPS The Conduit for the Wii packs some serious heat in the graphics department. In fact, it might just be the most technically impressive game on the console so far. Well, you won’t have to wait much longer to check it ouf for yourselves, as SEGA has just announced that the game has officially gone gold, and will be unleashing its alien-blasting action on Wii’s everywhere June 23.

I had a chance to play the game at E3 last week, and while the controls took some time to get used to, the game looked fantastic and (eventually) played great as well. Seriously, being able to toss a grenade by making a throwing gesture with the Wii’s nunchaku is a simple delight that never gets old. But I guess we’ll be able to put that assertion to the test in a couple weeks.

Industry Veterans Discuss Their Reactions To E3 2009

It's been over a week since E3. E3 2009 was a weird one; it wasn't the tiny, private E3 from the past few years, but it wasn't nearly as bombastic and over the top as it's been in the past. You watched our reactions to the show all week long, but what did people on the other side of the fence think? I reached out to several industry veterans about their experiences at E3 2009 and asked a simple question: was it a success?

Here's what they told me.

Ever since Peter Moore left Microsoft for EA Sports, he's changed the sport giant from a company that crapped out sequels year after year, to a division that innovated and expanded into different sports such as Tennis and MMA. I got a few moments to sit down with Peter this year to find out why they decided to go after MMA, what it's going to take for sports to succeed on the Wii, and their ever growing mobile and online efforts.

G4: First off, how’s E3 going?

Peter Moore: I’ve barely sampled E3. I mean, when I walked down below and then since then one of the, I say the down side, one of the challenges you have in my role is I also have to answer to investors and analysts. So, for the last two and half hours I’ve been off the floor. I have not been on the floor while the show’s been open. So, I thought we got off to a very good start yesterday. I loved the tone of our press conference. John Riccitiello has been very insistent that we bring on people that make the games and while they may not be the most polished presenters, they’re very genuine and honest and do all the real work and that’s why you’ve got people like Dean Richards from Fight Night and then Tom Singleton from Grand Slam Tennis were with me on stage. We’re a little different in there in that sports segment because we do bring some personalities on, but it just adds to what we think the brand stands for and boy, if you look at how diverse that brand was in that 15 minute segment, with Alison Sweeny and EA Sports Active, and Pete Sampras coming on stage to do a tennis game, which EA Sports has never done before. We’ve come a long way, and then announcing mixed martial arts - it’s a real different brand than it was 12, 18 months ago.

The EA Sport: The Peter Moore Interview

G4: MMA was actually a very big surprise for me because when you came on board to EA Sports you said you’d try to diversify the EA Sports brand, not just continue to do sequels of normal sports, but also do sports that appeal to different regions of the world. So why did you choose to  - tennis I understand that was this year - why is MMA the next step?
