Shadow of the Colossus also, the boss battles are so unique even to this day although Castlevania LOS did try it's best (but still a poor homage).

We had a dog, a mocap studio, and some spare time. So we thought, why not?

Let's try and see if we can capture some useable data with Uuno, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier belonging to our Junior Cinematographer, Sami Kastarinen. That's how it all started, at least.

Looks like somebody has bought the rights to Telltale's IP & back catalogue:

In an interview with Polygon, Ottilie confirmed that the new business has back-catalog rights to licensed properties The Wolf Among Us and Batman as well as full rights to original Telltale games such as Puzzle Agent. “There are some other expired licenses that we’re looking at,” he said.

Sega Dreamcast: Console of the future, 20 years ago

When the Sega Dreamcast hit American shelves 20 years ago today, on 9.9.99, it sold like crazy – for a while at least. It was Sega’s last chance in the hardware business. The 32X had been a dismal failure thanks to it being announced at the same time as the more advanced Sega Saturn in Japan.

With rose tinted spectacles the Dreamcast wasn't a bad machine, but it's back catalogue of games isn't that great tbh (not a patch on the Saturn IMHO) and to say it was blown out of the water by the PS2 would be an understatement.
