EPIC GAMES UNIVERSE Interview With Monte Brown: All About The Unreal Engine

By
Posted on October 4, 2012 AT 08:31am

We’re here with EPIC GAMES Universe, a community that is all about the Unreal Engine. Joining me for this interview is Monte Brown, Owner and Operate at www.epicgamesuniverse.com.

AntDaGamer: Hello Monte! Can you tell us a little about Epic Games Universe, how long its been around, and you vision for this project?

Monte Brown: I launched Epic Games Universe back in May 2012 after being a part of GCON for over two years, hosting and live streaming events, then became the official live streamer for The EGFC. It was time for me to show the community the love and passion I have for video games and mostly the Unreal Engine.

AntDaGamer: I wanted to create a site that fans of the Unreal Engine franchise can get the latest news, previews, and reviews of their favorite upcoming video game titles and be able to spread the word about these amazing titles.

Monte Brown: My vision of the site is to eventually really grown into a professional press site for video games and hardware reviews and make it a one stop place for all your Unreal Engine needs.

Incredible Gears Of War Judgement Art That Even Monte Brown Can Love

AntDaGamer: Do you feel your vision has been met?

Monte Brown: Not even close, we’re just starting out there is is tons of work ahead for Epic Games Universe ever to get where is needs to be and the hardest thing is to get known out in the gaming community’s.

AntDaGamer: What about Monte Brown? Can you tell us a little about the man behind the vision?

Monte Brown: I just love video games been playing since I was just a little guy and really stepped away from then until 2006 when I saw a trailer for Gears of War. I couldn’t believe my eyes what I was seeing a horror/shooter with mechanics I have never seen before in a game, I think that next day I went and pre-ordered Gears of War and that’s when I fell in love with the Unreal Engine.

 AntDaGamer: Are you excited about Gears of War: Judgment?

Monte Brown: Yes!  I love what they are doing with taking Horde and Beast Mode and blending them into an multi-player game mode. I’m also excited to about FFA in Judgment, pretty much just blast anything that comes in your way and try to stay alive. The other thing I like about Judgment is of course the new Campaign story and to see where Epic Games takes us this time.

AntDaGamer: What are you looking forward to most in Gears Of War: Judgment?

Monte Brown: Everything Campaign, multi-player, new characters, weapons and everything in between.

AntDaGamer: What scares you the most about Gears Of War: Judgment?

Monte Brown: Nothing really I just hope Epic Games takes what they’ve learned and problems they’ve found in the past games and try to correct them. I think they’re going down the right path with Judgment and should be a great game.

AntDaGamer: What is Monte B’s current favorite game?

Monte Brown: Has to be Gears of War 3, been playing the franchise since 2006 and haven’t stopped yet to this day and will continue with Gears of War Judgment.

The Incredible Gears Of War 3

AntDaGamer: Besides yourself , who are some of the major guys at EPIC GAMES UNIVERSE and what exactly do they do?

Monte Brown: It’s just me at the moment and sometimes I feel slammed with things but I get things done.

AntDaGamer: AntDaGamer is all about giving back to gamers not just providing news but by providing entertainment. I see you guys have a live stream like myself. Tell us about it.

Monte Brown:I have two live streams I have the official Epic Games Universe channel http://www.twitch.tv/epicgamesuniverse and my personal channel  http://www.twitch.tv/ev0l0ne The Epic Games Universe live stream is for events, tournaments or when we’re showcasing  a new game that just came out and getting ready to write a review about it. We also have a Epic Games Universe Team Page http://www.twitch.tv/team/epicgamesuniverse it features casters that live stream games made from the Unreal Engine and just help viewers get a wide variety of different streams.

My personal live stream is where I mostly stream at least 3-5 days a week playing Gears of War 3 and really just love showing people the passion and love I have for video games.

Ahh The Beautiful Gears Of War Judgement Day

AntDaGamer: I played once in one of you guys Free Agent tournaments and got slaughtered. Who came up with the idea for these Free Agent events and how can people get in on the next one?

Monte Brown: I’ve never been a part of the Free-Agent-Tournaments, that was after I stepped down from GCON.

AntDaGamer: What is your personal favorite game based on the Unreal Engine?

Monte Brown: Come on, it’s got be Gears of War franchise,  beautiful graphics, amazing game-play and it’s awesome story and characters.

AntDaGamer: Have you met Cliffy B or any one involved in an Epic Game or game based upon the Unreal Engine?

Cliff Bleszinski You Will Be Missed , Please Come Back Like Jordan In Your Prime!

Monte Brown: Sadly no, I haven’t and I would love to meet anyone from Epic Games. I have always tried to make it down to Comic-Con but just have never been able to. I’ve worked with them many times with events and stuff that involves the online community but no haven’t meet any of them face to face.

AntDaGamer: Just yesterday, Cliffy announced his is taking a breaking from his career and Epic Games. What is your take on that?

Monte Brown: We’ll I was shocked when I heard the announcement that Cliffy was leaving Epic Games Studios, didn’t expect it at all. I did notice he seemed not as involved with Judgment but I was just thinking he’s busy with getting married and all. Someone that has been with the company for over 20 years and has helped design, playtest, and discuss some of the most amazing video games to be released, that are still being played to this day. So yeah I was kind taking a double look at the announcement.
I can understand why he wanted to leave, to get a fresh start some where new and exciting and to start a new chapter in his life, with just getting married I’m sure he wants to feel have that excitement again, the air probably feels a little stale after being with a company that long. Cliff will probably miss all the amazing and talented people over at Epic Games Studios and sure he will be missed to. But that’s the way it is and Epic Games will be fine without Cliff.
Now I just hope he stays in the gaming industry cause Cliff is amazing at was he does and being the face of Epic Games Studios and pretty much making what it is today. I’m sure he won’t have a hard time finding that new chapter in his life and can’t wait to see what’s next from Cliff Bleszinski.

Well, as you can see Monte Brown is one crazy Gears Of War fan that has also fell in love with the Unreal Engine. Don’t forget to check out his website and links below.
