Punch Out!! Proud

I just have to brag about this a little more. For the last year and a bit I've been leading the animation team on the upcoming release of Punch Out!! for the Nintendo Wii. Now that the game has been announced and people are having a chance to play it, the initial reactions are coming in. This one was posted a couple of days ago by one of the editors for When I read it, it made my day and I'm so proud with the work we've done and glad that somebody out there appreciates it!
An excerpt from the review...
"However, the thing that really struck me—as a Computer Animation major—was the brilliance of this game’s animation. The subtlety of characters’ movements is so nuanced that it borders on the surreal. I honestly couldn’t tell if it was superb motion capture, hand animated from scratch, or (likely) some enhanced combination of both approaches. Whatever it is, my mouth was literally dropped open and left drooling at how gorgeous this game is in motion; someone has definitely put some love into this game. Newcomer Disco Kid is a perfect example; not just his quasi dance/boxing moves, but also his facial expressions and animation. I think saying “OMG I love it marry me please” sums it up nicely."
Thanks CortJezter! Whoever you are...
