So, a few weeks back Three Speach asked for gamers questions for Evan Wells, and here are the answers. The second part of the interview will follow tomorrow.
Well, that's that on that... It don't sound like Uncharted 2 will hit any time soon. Probably J&D "to play it safe" What a joke.... hope you ANAL LEAKS are happy.
His comments re: ratings were interesting:
"[Q] Best physics in a game, but why not incorporate the rag doll physics on downed enemies? I know they are there, but they only react when you run over them. Nothing happens when you shoot them. What was the reason behind this?
[EW] Actually we had the bodies reacting to bullets all the way up until the last couple of weeks of development. It came down to a ratings issue, and we really didn’t think that it was worth the risk of receiving a more mature rating for such a small feature.
[Q] There are beautifully animated fish in the water, but I can’t shoot them?
[EW] Same thing here. We had hit reactions and even some death animations for the wildlife in the game but we chose to remove it. It was flagged as a potential issue by the ESRB and it seemed like a small concession to make in order to maintain our “Teen” rating. It may have also affected the rating in Europe."
