Lunch at Cafe 150.
Max: Over the weekend I was hanging out with my friend Eric, who was a character artist on Tomb Raider 2.
Me: Oh, he'd get along great with George. (George is an engineer who enjoys ample-chested female game characters.)
Max: He didn't create the original Tomb Raider character. He just did improvements based off the original model.
Me: Okay. [pause] You know what, I'm going to write a game where the main character is a guy with a really huge bulge.
Max: [laughing while shaking his head]
Me: That's right. He'll run around in tight pants, and I'll make a level with a bunch of cold water pools that he has to avoid falling into.
Max: Will that appeal to the ladies?
Me: Sure, why not. I'll call it "Battle of the Bulge".
