The SML Podcast – Talking About Amplitude With John Drake Of Harmonix And Elder Scrolls Online

By Joe Cammissa



Monday night is here and it's time for The SML Podcast Episode 65: The John Drake Amplicast here on Bleeding Cool!

This week on the show we are joined by the one and only John Drake of Harmonix. Oh. And Save/Continue Editor Kyle Gaddo.

In a nice hour-long interview we talk to John Drake about the brand new Kickstarter for the new Amplitude game planned for PS3 and PS4. We discuss the process of the game, why they turned to Kickstarter despite people thinking they are rolling in that fat Rock Band cash, and we share our favorite P.O.D. memories.

We finish up our time with John by talking about what he's currently playing before he needs to depart to do an actual important podcast. Then Kyle needs to leave to see some bands. Then Kris and I talk about DRIVECLUB, Elder Scrolls Online, and what WE'VE been playing!
