This week, Player Attack tries something a little bit different, stepping away from video games for just a moment.
While at Oz Comic-Con recently, we had the chance to meet Tim Rose, the puppeteer behind iconic characters like Admiral Ackbar and Salacious B. Crumb from Return of the Jedi and Tik-Tok from Return to Oz. Jonny Robot had planned to catch up with him for a just a quick chat, but Tim is an amazing storyteller, and the time just flew by…
So: This week, we’re featuring that interview in full – Tim touches on how he got his start in puppeteering, his thoughts on the rise of CG animation, and what it was like working with Jim Henson.
If you still want your gaming fix, we also introduce Jackson, who’s spent some quality time with Child of Light.
Plus! We have all the week’s latest gaming news for you, because this is Player Attack!
Each week, we take the biggest and most interesting news to hit the pages of Player Attack and wrap it all up into a half-hour show. Player Attack is screened Friday nights on Australian subscription TV channel Aurora and in New Zealand on FaceTV. The following Monday, the video is released online as a handy-dandy Player Attack vidcast.
Each episode is available via YouTube, Blip.tv and iTunes – and we hear rumours we may be dotted around the place in other online locations. Hit play, subscribe, and let Jessica and the team bring you up to date.
