This Side Up 013: Edmund McMillen & The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

OK, so promising a weekly show might have been a bit ambitious. But! We'll still be posting episodes whenever we have an interview for you to enjoy, just like we do this week -- Edmund McMillen, co-founder of Team Meat and creator of games like Super Meat Boy and The Binding of Isaac. Edmund comes on to discuss the upcoming release of The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, which is a built-from-scratch enhanced version of the original game for PlayStation 4 and Vita. He also talks about how his religious upbringing influenced the game's development, I mention a crazy pastor I saw on TV in El Salvador ten years ago, and we both marvel at the longevity of Magic: The Gathering. Host: Joe Garcia (@Wons23) Music: “Dubstep Daycare” byGeorge & Jonathan

This Side Up 012: Ed Boon on Injustice: Gods Among Us

This week's interview is actually from C2E2 -- the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo -- back in April, right when NetherRealm Studios were primed to show off the very first DLC for Injustice: Gods Among Us for the very first time. Still, there's plenty of good information to be parsed; art director Steve Beran and creative director Ed Boon join a roundtable postmortem discussion on the game's development. Topics include the back and forth between NetherRealm and DC Comics on story and character designs, as well as the challenges of catering to both hardcore fighting game fans and casual players that just want to mash action figures together.
