Next-Gen.Biz writes: "Neversoft's claim to fame is Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, but now that the studio has added another annual franchise with Guitar Hero, studio director Scott Pease is ready to crank it to 11.
"Gaming's always been kind of in my blood," a soft-spoken Pease says in a phone interview. Growing up, he was the typical gamer, playing games like the early Zeldas and having run-ins with his brother over games of Madden on Sega Genesis.
"Like most people at Neversoft, I've been a gamer since I was a kid, growing up with consoles in the house and always diving into whatever game was around," says Pease, who earned a slot at no. 15 on Next-Gen's Hot 100 Developers list for 2008.
