Last week I did an interview with Nathan Hernandez, lead animator for Scribblenauts, a fun and innovative game for the Nintendo DS. Nathan and I went to high school together, and when I found out that he was at 5th Cell, and that I reviewed their last game, I couldn't pass up an opportunity to speak with him. Since game interviews don't really fall under the job description of freelance reviewer for GameSpot, I did the interview for TC Magazine, where I was once the senior editor.
Instead of reposting the interview here, as I did on my GameSpot blog, I'll just refer you TC Magazine's website. I had a great time interviewing Nathan and it was fun to get a peek at game development. I've been following the game industry my whole life, and even though I get to review games for one of the top game news outlets, it's still exciting to see how things work on the other side of the industry.

Also, in case you didn't notice it in my blogroll, The Mecklenburg Times now has a wordpress blog! This is very exciting for us because we can finally share our stories online with our readers. Corporate is working on the real deal site, but until then, I think the blog is great. Check it out!
