If you've kept up with news on Crackdown 3 you'll know that actor Terry Crews features in it, and has also featured in pre-release trailers to bring his unique eccentricity and energy levels to the project, something that senior art director Dave Johnson pointed out when we talked to him in London recently.
Now the man himself has talked about the game in an interview with Pedestrian.TV, and says that the size and scale of the game really allows it to reflect him personally.
"It's kinda standalone," he explained. "You don't really have to have played the first two Crackdowns in order to be a part of this one. Right now it's actually, you know, the biggest, most giant, most crazy version, which is a lot like me [laughs]. I tell people it's the Terry Crews simulator."
Motion capture also proved a new challenge to Crews, as he said:
"With this video game, with Crackdown, I had all the motion capture nodules all over my body and the markings, and I was in a big giant empty room, so I had to imagine where everything was, and that was hard, that was a whole different thing."
"They were telling me, 'oh, these are your people in front of you and this is the button, and the council is here,' and I was like, what? That was really difficult."
He also talked about his son that prefers gaming over football. "I was a professional football player, but he's not really into football. This morning he didn't know who was in the Super Bowl, you know what I mean, and that's OK with me," he says. "I would much rather be a part of his world than he be a part of mine."
Is Terry Crews a selling point for this game?
