And fairly informative to boot.
Ill say, game lot to think about, and the whole idea of it all been in one place is a great idea for development purposes!

I had a major lol at the guy at 2:55
Many times when people hear that you work on video games for a living, the inclination is to think that we sit around and play games all day, and that's not true.
I mean, we play games well into the night as well!

It took them over a minute to mention where research triangle was (for some reason they think there's only one in the US??). THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT NORTH CAROLINA!!!

Care to guess where Escapist HQ is located? I'm building a collection of Escapist swag from all the events I run into them at...

I'm scratching my head, are they trying to get me to move to North Carolina or something?

I think the intended audience was missed here.

Yeah, that was my impression. You wouldn't have gotten away with putting something like that in the forum. I guess the Escapist's just looking for more ways to make cash?

Nope not jealous. I live a few miles from Bungie, Microsoft, Nintendo, Popcap games, Nc Soft,and a few others I'm sure that I'm forgetting. And have a few friends in those various companies that I talk to regularly. Its nice having these contacts as I would like to get into the gaming industry. Getting my degree in computer animation at the moment.

Nice to know there is another hub for this stuff. Just in case I ever wanna move to the east coast.
