Hi,

I might meet Warren Spector tomorrow. I'd like you to post questions you'd want to ask him or to send them through PM.

It's for tomorrow so make it quick. ;)

Thanks.

Sweet! :cool:

Okay, I'd like to know if Warren is still into his music?
I think I read once that he liked bands like the Rolling Stones & Velvet Underground.... and that he plays guitar? :)

So, yeah, I'd like to know more about his general hobbies/pursuits/interests today, other than computer games.
Thank you.

Can I get his autograph?

No, seriously. Have him sign something, and get it to Rene. He has my mailing address. :D

I want his autograph in my Deus ex copies :P

I have a question about his future in gaming industry, why he wants to go to the "casual" games instead of trying to make what he can do the best: games for hardcore gamers like system shock and deus ex ?

I want to know if he is working for the Grays or the Rosicrucians. :)

We know that Warren Spector has seen Deus Ex 3 and has given it a thumbs-up. What did he like most about the Deus Ex 3 concept?

Also, if I'm allowed two questions, I'd like to ask Mr.Spector what he feels is the best game he's ever worked on.

Is Bambi trapped in a box with life support devices like Lucius DeBeers? Is it possible to kill Bambi?

Ask him where the source code for System Shock is.

Could you ask him how does he feel toward Deus Ex 3 at this point? As far as I know, he actually works for Disney on an unannounced project and I think he said he was tired doing games about guys with guns. Is he trying to make teen games with emergent gameplay :D ? If he does have the possibility to work right know on a brand new Thief 4 with today's technology, how would it be like? I'm really interrested to hear what he could say as answers about the two last questions actually :whistle:.

Hey, yeah. Thief is very much not about guys with guns. We need more Thief.

Make it 3...oh, how awesome that would be.

Ask him the Chicken or the Egg question

I'll answer that for you with another question:
What came first? Man or infant?
Eggs need chickens. Not the other way around. :)

Birds evolved from reptiles. Reptiles lay eggs. No matter where you want to draw the boundary between the last reptile and first chicken in the chain, there was still an egg in between. Egg came first. No question there.

Wait...


Fox Atomic will release the film and Warren Spector will executive produce.

Is it a game or a film? Or is it both? Is this what those concept images on the junction point website were about?

Sounds intriguing I guess...

PS: the answer is still 43 :thumbsup:

What a load of steamy poo.

But this is not an evolutionary debate. Lets talk about good old Warren.

Here's a question I'd like to know. What were the work hours like for the original Deus Ex crew. At what time did they come in and at what time did they leave. Just kinda curious how games where made back then. :)

MODS -- When I open a MIGS thread please export everything under that message to the latter thread and close that temporary one, thank you very much --

OH MY GOD WHAT A DAY !!!

I have tons of pictures to share but I'll need to do all that in front of a free computer.

7.30 registration, I was one the first. Then Warren walks among the crowd and sees my t-shirt "I want that t-shirt" he tells me laughing then leaves to prepare. I say "ok i can get plenty (thruth is no I can't)". I take it off (I had the simple EM t-shirt under, I planned it all) and ask a guy from the event staff to go with me to the tribune where Warren will speak so that I can put the t-shirt aside the microphone!! :lol: 5 minutes pass and Warren goes back to the main room, checks the microphone and from afar I see a broad smile. :D

Doors open, front row and, the conference starts and loads of pictures. Then a present, pictures and a few words. I also captured the moment where he and M.D'Astous met. :thumbsup:

The following was great conferences and the final one by EM's GM was incredibly detailed and very interesting. (You will see what happens to a producer who drank too much).

All good so far. Sorry for the lack of text and pictures but it's a 3$/hour computer.

Thank you for reading.
