The Joystiq Show - Gamescom 2011 Day 3


Day 3 is here, and don't you dare go looking for Day 2 -- seriously, there isn't one. It's a special edition of the Gamescom 2011 wrap-up with guests from the development and publishing sides of the fence, as the boys are joined by GRiN co-founder Ulf Andersson and ex-creative director Simon Viklund, both currently of Overkill Software, developer of Payday: The Heist, as well as ex-Capcom director of production Adam Boyes, current head of Beefy Media.

The guys hit the history of GRiN, Ulf and Simon's new studio, Adam's insights into the problems with games publishing, and a host of other rarely discussed issues on the business-end of games. Outside of big reveals and a slew of trailers, inside industry talk is one of the best parts of these big conventions, and we have that covered in spades.
