James Pugh is a regular battler and at times an adjudicator on Battlecast, and has won many battles through his use of video game characters and…pop stars. Hit the jump to check out the interview!

PG! Interviews James Pugh of Star Citizen

Yesterday I had the great pleasure of sitting down with James Pugh, Community Manager of Cloud Imperium Games, developer of the highly-anticipated Star Citizen. For those of you that are as yet unfamiliar with Star Citizen, it is a genre-bending mouthful of a game: a first-person science-fiction persistent-world massively-multiplayer-online title with a focus on flight-simulation and first-person combat. At the time of this article’s composition it has reached $81,230,252 in crowd-sourced funds, and as such it is the largest crowd-funded project of any kind to date. But more than that, it’s arguably the most ambitious title in the history of interactive entertainment, and that is incredibly exciting.

This Is a Joke, Right?

This Is a Joke, Right?

There are times, when words are not enough. I am an eternal proponent of the written word, and I am at a loss when I find myself in a position where this happens. I admit this only under times of extreme duress – I am speechless. I am at a loss for words.

This is one of those times. I don’t need to say anything about the above. I don’t need to critique it. Your brain is doing it for you. You have taste. You understand what is acceptable, and what is not.

The question, is, naturally, how and why on earth did this design concept make it past the drawing board, let alone through the approval process? If you have an answer, and if that answer is cogent, and well reasoned, please let us know. Please.

Review: Batman vs Robin – Did anyone read the Books?

Review: Batman vs Robin – Did anyone read the Books?

As one of DC’s most popular characters, Batman has no shortage of excellent story arcs. In recent years though, none have kept me on the edge of my seat quite like Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s run on Batman featuring the Court of Owls. It seemed like the glimmering diamond in the New 52, and when Batman vs Robin was first announced, it seemed like my dreams had true; Court of Owls and the Peter Tomasi and Patrick Gleason run of Batman & Robin would finally be melded into one animated feature. It’s DC Animation; their track record is solid. What could possibly go wrong?
