I came late for PAX interviews so all I got was one interview. Luckily, it’s an awesome one with Rob Yescombe, a screenwriter for Free Radical. In this interview, we talk about their new PS3 game Haze, what else Free Radical is up to, and working in the UK. A XPlatform show is coming up this week so stay tuned.

Well, the Duke Nukem Forever of my career is over and I am very happy it’s out before my next conference comes up in less than 2 weeks. I got a lot of interesting interviews and talked to a lot of great people. I really enjoyed my time at the Game Developers Conference being able to learn more about the industry and the people in it. I also enjoyed seeing all the other podcasters who were there also. Hope you enjoy this one hour show.

To make your listening experience better, here is a Time Log of the interviews.

Well PAX was crazy. Too many people in such a small area and hopefully we’ll see even more vendors and game makers at the next event. I have a Photo/Video Galleries for both days and two episodes of the Daily Game Addiction showing off the attendees and people that make the game industry what it is. So enjoy the media and hope to see you all at PAX 2007

Yesterday, Brier Dudley wrote a column on the new iPod killer that Microsoft is developing called the “Argo”. I got a chance to speak to him and ask a few gaming questions about what it will do for gamers. I’ll discuss the Argo more in the next Game Addict Hotline Podcast. Hope you enjoy.

I screwed up the name in the podcast. I’m very sorry and will remind myself to say it right in the next podcast.
