It feels so good to have the podcast crew reunited that we had to do one better. Our special guest this week is Cory Lewis, formerly of IGN, Nintendo PR, and Pandemic Studios. He even recently did some work on Cave Story for WiiWare, a topic that comes late in the show. We start, however, with a big New Business covering more Mario, Spirit Tracks, both DJ and Band Hero, Excitebike: World Rally, Final Fight 3, F1 racing vs. NASCAR, Mass Effect, and PixelJunk Shooter.
The episode's latter half focuses on Cory's fascinating journey through the gaming industry. You'll learn how he got hired at IGN (twice), what it's like working public relations for Nintendo of America, and how game producers juggle management tasks with broad creative input on a huge project like The Saboteur. Cory is a true insider who also happens to be a huge Nintendo fan.
