Coverage from EA’s GDC Event Incoming!

I’ll be linking here as I find them, feel free to link to anything I’ve missed in the comments:

GDC Trailer at IGN

Escapist Interview

Great interview, a little light on gameplay footage, but you get to see what I actually do at these events! Tim from EA2D makes an appearance, also at 2:28. Look closely, 4 player Snailshell Golf is being played in the background!

GameStop Interview

I should have a catchphrase…

GameSpot Preview

A great preview, but Shaun seems to believe that Fancy Pants Man’s original orange pants aren’t so fancy! At least not compared to all the great textured pants you can earn later on!

IGN Preview

Another great preview from longtime Fancy Pants fan Hilary Goldstein. Click to check out his impressions of 4 player Snailshell Golf!

    Haha, yeah. It looks sooo amazing. I’m starting to think I’m going to have to buy an xbox or something (fancy pants is probably the only thing I’d use it for, so i’ve been trying to resist. Also, I’m bad enough about getting stuff done as it is…). My friends all think I’m crazy for obsessing over this so much, haha, so maybe with the multiplayer mode I can show them how awesome it is…

    @jackhall: Yes, multiplayer is fully online ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m sure I don’t have to tell you how crazy our tech has to be to get that working properly.

    @KCreator78: Looks like that was Outer Squiggleville. There’s very few changes from the outlines that I’ve shown before, I don’t think I showed off the bottom subway part, though.

  3. KCreator78

    A subway?! Nice!! Will there be a train inside of it too, and will it be able to move? :mrgreen:
    It looks like all the pictures you have shown us so far seems to fit in with the different levels, except from the icy level with the orange flag… but that’s just a remake of the ice level in fpa 2, right?

    Also, I just played that level in fpa 2, just to check about that picture, and I just noticed a sign in the roof, which says: Hey -Brad ๐Ÿ˜›


    @brad: awesome!!!!! so, when do ya get back home to teach us whats gonna happen for the next (days, weeks, maybe month?)

    @applewarrior: what you said in the last video, I can sometimes sound like a really older guy, and sometimes, i can sound like a 7th grader. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜› ๐Ÿ˜† :mrgreen:

  5. smileylover

    Of course the orange pants are fancy!! Is that an insult to Worlds 1 and 2??

    @ICARAX: You’re in 7th grade? That make me feel better, I thought I was the youngest! (8th grade)

  6. Brad

    @Policeman655: Yep, that’s the King, I know I’ve shown off some test footage of him before. Isn’t there a new characters page around here somewhere?


    @Smileylover: you are older than alot of people here. same. there are some 10 year olds and 11 year olds. im 12. ๐Ÿ˜€ but i dont necessarily sound like it though.

    @Brad: this is looking Amazing man! The multiplayer (from what I’ve seen of it) is probably the most well done multiplayer in a platformer ever! I can’t WAIT to play this thing. It looks SO amazing.


    @DaxterSpeed: Hey that was my idea!!!!! no, im serious, it was, so i think i should be mentioned for making the idea, and then the best contributor is announced for the post.

    @brad: i have seen most of them! ๐Ÿ˜›

    “Seeing a more fully realized downloadable version is kind of like waking up to find your dream was real. One of the new improvements? Online multiplayer. It’s nuts. The entire game, from start to finish, can be played with up to three others both online and offline.”


    [EDIT] The question is of course, will it work with XBOX 360 vs. PS3?

  11. ICARAX

    @Brad: Well, after watching the shaun mccinis interview, i got a BIT confused. Is it gonna be in the stores as well, or just downloadable??? ๐Ÿ˜ฎ please tell me soon!!

  12. Brad

    @DaxterSpeed: I’m almost positive that it’s against regulations to do that. You don’t follow the rules, they don’t post your game online. EA uses separate servers in most of their games, and I’m pretty sure they still haven’t done that yet.

    Each system has different rules for, well, everything, and of course, we would have to require a separate sever log in.

    hey Brad, Ithink you’ve had a catchphrase all along:

    Why be realistic when you can be fancy??
