Bonus Update: The episode has aired, and you can check it as a re-run all this week here.
A developer working on Midway's Area 51 game is on for the first third of the show, but following that we are treated to some brief video from Tuesday's Psychonauts launch party featuring quick interviews with Scott Campbell, a director at Majesco, and Tim Schafer's dad! Following that Tim appears, and (after the Gamespot guys try to shame him with a story about a short story he wrote in college and never showed his mom) starts talking Psychonauts.
During the Q&A session, Tim also addresses the fan responses to his scandalous remark in a recent magazine interview that graphics killed adventure games, relates elements of Psychonauts to Jordan Mechner's classic adventure game The Last Express, and admits that he doesn't yet own a PSP. Check it out.<:MORENEWS:>
Update: Tim Schafer will be making a guest appearance on tonight's On the Spot, Gamespot's weekly online TV show thing! You can watch the show live (it starts in about 3 hours, 50 minutes) and if you're a Gamespot Complete member, you can harass Tim with your questions during the show through a handy form they provide.
Old News: Will Psychonauts be making a repeat appearance on Gamespot's live weekly "On the Spot" show tonight? Nobody knows! But, artwork from the game does appear in the banner ad Gamespot is using to promote tonight's show, and they generally cycle those ads out every week to reflect the upcoming show's content.
Maybe we'll get a demo of a previously unseen area? Maybe we'll get a glimpse of the PC port? Maybe we'll see some embarassing booze-addled footage from Tuesday night's Psychonauts launch party? Or maybe Psychonauts won't even be featured in tonight's episode. Check it out here live, about 5 hours from now!
Psychonauts and Tim Schafer were previously featured on On the Spot about a month and a half ago, if you missed it. Schafer chatted it up with the Gamespot guys and gave a decently lengthy demo of some early levels. Scroll through the archives on the On the Spot page down to 2/17/05 to watch the rerun.
