In this episode I chat with Shawn about his history with the game industry, and we also discuss the differences between been a games journalist compared to working in the development side.

That Shawn Elliott guy needs to use his sweet development money and buy a laptop that doesn't heat up as much. :-D

Is there a famous American with the surname Davidson that causes no one to be able to spell John's name correctly?

Shawn was really great, but I was disappointing by the breadth of questions or the follow-through on some questions.

For instance, Elliott clearly doesn't have much to say about achievements, yet the interviewer spieled about it for so long, relating his own experience with little regard for what Elliott had just said. He was on a whole other wave-length.

I think it would have been more interesting to go into how developers go about designing something addictive in a broader sense. What pressures cause those design decisions. How they skew the game away from the initial vision etc.

Saying that, Irony from BioShock was my personal favorite achievement. I hope there are some surprising ones next time around too.

Yeah, no offense Paul, but I thought during the John Davison interview you talked too much about yourself. Didn't notice it during the Ashley Riot and Jeff Green episodes though.

WHERE DID SHAWN'S PODCAST WITH N'GAI and JEFF GREEN GO? It just dissapeared and we never heard anything again.

Out of the Game needs to come back.

When he said he had things to say about what he hopes happens in gaming I was hoping you would ask him about that.

So was this a big joke? How come nobodies mentioned the drowsy, half-assedness of the whole thing? I'm sure it was agreed upon to sound like you're both on sedatives but man it got annoying after a while. I'm sure that was all by design, though.

Good grief, no wonder Shawn kept his hat on so much!

Time to beat that receding hairline by shaving the head and growing a stylish beard, Mr. Elliott. :)

I was confused at first reading the thread title, and thought this was Irrational's PR podcast. I clicked with crazy thoughts of Elliott interview himself in a bizarre piece of editing.

It is coming back, but scheduling a time that's good for everybody is hell.
