CC Powerslam: The Ninth Wonder of the World

por Philip Federico

This isn't exactly the time to put up a new episode of Powerslam, but sometimes you have to say what is on your mind. That is what this episode is about. Chyna has passed away at the age of 45, leaving a legacy behind that cannot be forgotten. In this episode of Powerslam, Dustin and Fletch talk about Chyna's career and post-career, and pay tribute to one of the biggest hearts in sports entertainment.

por Philip Federico

Welcome to the 26th episode of CC Powerslam, Capsule Computers Official Wrestling Podcast!

Today, we had a great opportunity to speak with the wonderful, generous and talented Cleveland, Ohio native Bill Watterson - voice of Lost Planet 3's main protagonist Jim Peyton; a miner on a NEVEC contract to join the crew on E.D.N. III, drilling for the natural resource known as T-Energy.

We spoke for over an hour, talking about his work on the game, first experience with video game performance capture in L.A. Noire, collection of He-Man action figures, unadulterated love for Marvel and of course, what makes him character tick and just why fans will come to love him in the upcoming Capcom published, Spark Unlimited developed title. Did you know early on in development - talking vertical slice/pitching days - this prequel to the original Lost Planet had a more stylised look? Imagine an almost cel-shaded Lost Planet?! (although we're sure it wasn't planned to be that cartoon-ish).

We also found out how he thinks he would actually fare in the extreme conditions of the icy planet.
