Truthfully I'd take it if you can. It can be really hard to get your foot in the door, and having industry experience makes a huge difference.

Guru, Congratulations, have you decided on a name? :)

Nice to see some good news! I've got a PS3 and am playing TFU right now. (Imperial felucia atm) ;) Plus somewhere to live, etc.

Congrats, Marth, Guru and ARC! :D

August and September I got an awesome new PC with top of the line equipment running Windows 7 (I refuse to download the virus called "Windows 10" and Windows 8 is for tablets. :P), along with EA Battlefront and Battlefield 4 for it, and my mom got a new job.

My phone interview with Monolith is on Wednesday! I'M SO UNPREPARED LOL :runaway:

Congrats to your mom! Also hit me up on Origin (username is GT-Marth8880) so we can do some BF4! Heck, it'd be great if a bunch of us could squad up together at some point. (And don't forget to join the GT platoon haha)

If your reason(s) for not wanting to upgrade to Windows 10 is related to privacy concerns or compatibility with the mod tools, I can totally agree with and support that. If that's not the case, however, you're going to be much better off with Windows 10 - especially because Windows 7 doesn't support DirectX 12 (and likely never will). Personally, I absolutely love almost everything about Windows 10 and I've had zero regrets upgrading (and I LOVED Windows 7).

Hey, I just bought that game. :P


Goodluck with the interview, I wouldn't be surprised if we see your name in the credits for the next gen battlefront, :P just remember, you are as awe inspiring to us, as they are to you!

Sounds like a plan. Though don't expect much out of me at this point. :P

Those are my main concerns, yeah. As for DirectX 12, I may have to come up with a dual-boot system at some point, so I can use 10 for newer games and game development, 7 or XP for mods and other stuff.

It would be even better with a population greater than 0. Image

But seriously though yeah it's a gorgeous area, the mountain backdrop reminds me of Vancouver. Also, your friendly neighbor Washington says hello! (Yeah, that's right Idaho, I'm ignoring you. :u)

Congrats guru!

Well, it's been a bit more than a month, but I moved across the continent to San Diego and got a job as a game developer for a small company that makes high-end simulations. #Livinthedream

That's great, TW! I'm assuming it's a programming position of some sort? Also, which studio? :o
