Our interview with <a href="/games/mksm">Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks</a> producer, <b>Shaun Himmerick</b>, has finally gone live. You can start downloading the video via our <a href="/torrents/torrentfiles/E3%202005%20Shaun%20Himmerick%20Interview.mov.torrent">torrent file</a> served by our <a href="/torrents">torrent tracker</a>. Grab the <a href="http://www.bittorrent.com">Official BitTorrent Client</a> or <a href="http://azureus.sourceforge.net">Azureus</a> if you haven't already.

The interview is <b>9:50</b> long and covers many aspects of <b>Shaolin Monks'</b> development, including the involvement of the <b>Mortal Kombat</b> team, the fighting and adventure gameplay styles, the absence of online play, accessing hidden playable characters. Also checkout the screen in the background as it features live gameplay including many of the game's Fatalities throughout the interview.

We are going to follow up later today with videos of all six of the in-game Fatalities from Shaolin Monks, including two "secret" Fatalities that were not posted on the game kiosk. We also may post up our hands on impressions of the E3 demo of Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks today or tomorrow. And we'll be closing up the show with our fifteen minute indepth interview with Ed Boon.

We updated the torrent list to enclude the file size. Also the more seeders we have, the faster the download will go. We have 3 seeders currently and need more.... +5 Karma to all those who seed atleast to a 1.0 ratio, maybe higher rewards for higher ratios. Lets get seeding!

Like I said, I'll seed for you, I've already got two torrents downloaded. I can seed them both.

Edit: Saw the video, really cool stuff, I was mostly observing the game in action in the background and I really loved how they incorporated the fatalities. This game looks really good, imo. Anyways, how many of our questions did you use during the interview?

Sorry for sounding like a twit but how do you find out your ratio?

Whate program do you use? Azureus?
 
I seeded for a few hours after I was done, but had to stop because Bittorrent simply chokes my connection. We recently downgraded and even though my ping in games is phenomonal, my downloads have all been capped at a pathetic 50Kb/s, don't even want to find out what my upload has degenerated to :roll:

This image is from Bit Comet, but I use Azureus now. Guess that's the ratio, I'm not even sure myself.

I was the one playing the game in the background, so I did a few Fatalities and tried to keep the gameplay interesting. And about 1/3rd of the questions were from you guys.

We will be putting up a trasnscript soon, along with smaller resolutions versions of the interview.

Yes, that U/D Ratio is your upload data compared to your download data. 1.0 or higher would suffice for Karma awards. We haven't decided on how to distribute the awards yet, whether its per torrent or for the entire tracker.
