Mark Rein Sets The Record Straight 19

from the hearsay-is-the-best-say dept.
Eurogamer had a chance to sit down with Mark Rein, president of Epic Games. He says that many of his recent comments have been taken out of context, and need a little clarification. From the article: "I actually said Nintendo's going to make amazing games. I never really passed a judgement on the controller itself. I think the controller's cool! ... I wasn't bashing Nintendo, I wasn't bashing the controller, I was really just saying that a byproduct of having a device like this is that people are going to make games that possibly are just there because of the controller, as opposed to being great games of themselves, and I said it badly... I regret that." We've previously reported on some of these statments.

    Stand behind what you said, dude! The Revolution controller IS obnoxious, and while there will be some great first party games from Nintendo, there will be lots and lots of third party crap.

    If that controller is used well, it will be awesome. A lot of the games on the original EyeToy disc were great and worked well.

    But did you ever play EyeToy Antigrav? Nicktoons Movin'? Operation Spy Toy?

    This controller will create a few great games, but, like Rein said, it'll also create a lot of stupid games.

Be sociable. Speak to the person next to you in the unemployment line tomorrow.
