If anyone's curious, "Kiss mode has two singers performing gestures together. When duets are performed well, the on-screen avatars will get closer and closer until they meet in the middle to share a kiss." (Joystiq) well, isn't that adorable

well to be fair, it looks like both the "what platform" and "when is is released" questions are always asked (and they are probably required to ask them), not everyone watching E3 is familiar with the game and these 2 questions are really stuff that has to be asked and I think everyone so far got these 2 questions asked.

But that's just stupid. "Average Joe" doesn't watch these interviews. What's targeted at him, are the adviertisments and the short trailers. If a guy decides to watch a 15 minutes interviev with a developer, it's safe to assume that he knows the very basics about the game he's interested in, isn't it? When listening/talking directly to the developer, you hope to receive some exclusive information, not that generic data found in the every single press-release. That's why interviewers should not only be pretty (and that girls isn't, really), but also know something about the game and even more than that - they should show us that they do.

Well, there are other ways to ask which platforms a game appears on without possibly sounding clueless. For example: "..and this game will be exclusive to the PS3, right?" (she appropriately mentioned this after the Flower demo) and "For those at home who don't know, what platform will this game appear on?" I just think it shows the interviewer has done his/her homework, or at least paid attention during the press conferences. Just a minor slip, I guess. :-)

As an interviewer, Don may seem to be a little green and rough around the edges, but I've seen him in other interviews/game shows where he appears totally comfortable onstage, demonstrating a confidence and self-awareness that others sometimes lack. I'm sure this Dawn of War segment was initially meant to be driven by the guest's agenda and audience questions, since you guys know most about the game. He responded to the technical difficulties by making the interview process more transparent (mentioning the tech. difficulties, asking the guest to basically go through his list of talking points, exaggerated excitement, etc)--a choice which could be funny for co-workers watching behind the scenes, but may be interpreted as "inappropriate" to unsympathetic Dawn of War fans. Oh well, live and learn! "Don of War" is cool nickname, anyhow.

lol.

i also thought this girl that's interviewing the bioware guy for dragon age is pretty bad. she messes up in the first part, and the guy she's interviewing looks at her, like, 'is this girl for real?' and she totally overreacts to everything, almost sensationalizing what's going on in the game - clearly, she has no real interest in the game.

My favorite "Is she for real??" reaction comes at the end of the InFAMOUS stage demo (skip to the 13:15 mark). She asks the game director on what platforms InFAMOUS (a PS3 exclusive published by SCEA) will be released. Dude was like "PS3!!!" and sounded a little offended and amazed that she would even ask. Awkward. Granted, there's not a whole lot of fanfare around InFAMOUS, but I think people expect interviewers to know their stuff, especially when it comes to exclusives.

Are they releasing this version as Soulcalibur or Soul Calibur? Or SOULCALIBUR? I think the DC title had a space, which I prefer.
