- According to Wallace, he was asked by Corey May to write some of the material for Shaun Hastings in Assassin's Creed III.
- In Awkward Situations for Men, in the chapter "Typecast", Wallace relates his experience trying out for the role of a videogame character described in his audition script notes as "awkward, nerdy, lonely, intense, and contrary", although neither Shaun nor Assassin's Creed are explicitly named. The chapter closes with "I am furious when I get the part."
- In a 2009 interview with The Guardian, Wallace described it as "weird" that "as the gamer you can just go up to me and start bothering me by just pressing the button, and you know I'll just get more and more annoyed - which I think my wife will enjoy doing."
