PAX 2012 gave Uriyya the opportunity to check out many titles and one of them was Spec Ops: The Line. Uriyya was reserved, skeptical and almost downright uninterested. Uriyya didn’t really see this title fitting in his go to shooter for this year; the one’s you usually hear about. So, Uriyya approached the well done area for spec ops during PAX east and got the opportunity to speak with the lead writer Walt and had a lot of fun with that. Uriyya played the demo and was not impressed, not because it wasn’t good (it was) it just wasn’t on his radar. The problem was that he needed change my mindset about it and the trigger wasn’t the game demo itself; It was Walt - the writer.
