"Hey! Do you have any promotional stuff for SHAR and RR from back then or Any Cut content you would like to share while working on The Simpsons Game?"
Oh boy, well, yes for SHAR... but nothing I can share at the moment. It's nothing too exciting, just some assets from the web marketing. I should figure out what to do with those files someday.
As for TSG, I surprisingly don't recall much that was cut. I joined as a tester in June when they planned to ship in October, so there wasn't time to make big changes. I can tell you about the time I worked a 23-hour shift to test all the cutscenes on Nintendo Wii because someone at Fox didn't like the 3D-animated cutscenes and wanted to replace them with 2D-animated cutscenes. The new cutscenes look great and it was absolutely the right creative choice, but I just about lost my mind when I couldn't complete the final boss battle after playing it hundreds of times. I had to take a walk at 3 in the morning around the dark test floor to calm down. It's a funny memory now but oof, a brain can't run for that long. And you know, those 3D-animated cutscenes still ended up in the NDS version because they needed to get that game through Nintendo submission first.
Oh! And if you go to the downstairs closet in the Simpson house on Xbox 360 and PS3, you'll notice that it's a menu for the DLC. Well, that DLC never happened. It never even made it to the test department, so they must've dropped it early on.
"Figured I'd also stop by to say hi...though you may want to consider researching something else. Like the wise Jeff Albertson taught me, video games are a waste of money. Now, to go online, and bid one thousand dollars for Itchy & Scratchy Corncob Holders! Terrific, terrific expense!"
I live in sarcasm! After all, I grew up on The Simpsons and spent a lot of time on Simpsons forums. I'd say the show formed the backbone of my sense of humor. So no worries about that. But it really can get expensive. I own a physical copy of every port of every Simpsons game ever made, and some of them were far more expensive than they should have been. Inflation in the video game collector sector is wild.
"GG hojala saquen un nuevo juego de simpsons"
Un nuevo juego? Pero no les cuesta nada a simplemente mantener TSTO. Bueno, solamente el interes del publico, de los fans, de jugadores... Pero en serio, estoy esperando que alguien que trabaja con Disney tenga una nueva idea.
"Appreciate the response, did you find them in a magazine on a disc or on the internet? 2002 was a long time ago though, so I'd be surprised if you remember. I'm very interested in that game in particular."
Those Skateboarding videos probably came from some online outlet, like Gamespot or IGN. But yeah, I can't recall for sure.
