The HotSpot - Uncharted 3, Mirage - 3/7/2012

Uncharted 3 and Mirage are up for their own respective Visual Arts awards tonight, but The HotSpot pits indie versus AAA developer here and now.

Both Uncharted 3 and Mirage are up for Best Visual Arts awards at the Game Developers Conference tonight, but that's not all that links the two wildly different games. Naughty Dog FX lead Keith Guerrette joins one-man-show Mario von Rickenbach and Tom Magrino to discuss how developing a "realistic" production like Uncharted 3 is kind of the same, kind of different from making a highly abstract indie game like Mirage.

This weeks program is very enjoyable. Great idea with bringing guests from different departments and making a few podcasts.

did the naughtdog artist say that these days games (from major publishers) are more creative and less about a "sure sell?" Isn't that the exact opposite of what everyone who talks about video games think?

Lava Lamp is still off. =( why is there a red flash at the end of every episode? Are you trying to give me a seizure or subliminal message?
