This week's Media Consumption, a weekly column that digs deep to find out what our favorite games industry personalities have been consuming in the four basic media food groups of sound, film, written word and games, speaks to Vicious Cycle president Eric Peterson.
In this extract, Peterson - whose console game, Curious George
, hits shelves this week - waxes poetic about his favorite rock band, KISS (guitarist Ace Frehley is pictured with Peterson to the right):
"My favorite band has to be KISS. And anyone who knows me already would tell you that I also have lots of KISS memorabilia sitting around my house – I am still searching for those perfect display cases for my cards, puzzles, albums, CDs, DVDs, Mego dolls (yes, I said dolls), action figures, comic books, cars and my prize possession – one of Ace’s guitars, signed by the man himself! As to why I like KISS...well, they are a great stage act, they wear kabuki makeup, breathe fire and blood. What isn’t there to like?"
