I have to end the suspense, I’ve received two many emails and instant messages about this. As you can no doubt tell since you’re well versed in video games and all that, the picture above is that of a Big Daddy from last year’s critastically well reviewed Bioshock. I have accepted a job at 2K Marin to work on the sequel.
I was going to hold out and post this later but Andrew “I only post Valve-related humor on my website anymore” Burke is coming to town this weekend and I would probably have forgotten about this. Then Amila would be mad and that’d be no good.
It’s pretty neat, I wanted to work on a film and I got to do that at DNA. I wanted to work at a LucasFilm company since 1999 and I was able to do that. One of my favorite art styles is Art Deco so I’ll get to work on a project in which that’s featured. I think after this I will simply have to retire as there’s nothing left in the world that could possibly inspire me.
Oh, and my car is dark gray. Also, I counted the buttons today, there are over four hundred and ninety six thousand on the dashboard alone.
My real-life character finally caught up with my World of Warcraft characters and I bought a mount today.
Ever since 2003 I’ve been talking about buying a car. When I moved to Texas, DNA put me up with a car. Then I moved back to the Bay Area and I could either borrow a car or I would just take a bus. Then I bought a bike and I rode that around. But with the job change, my commute changes and requires a car.
So as I’ve grown a bit, my taste in cars has too. It’s gone everywhere from a Mini Cooper to a VW Golf to a Subaru Outback to an Audi A3 to finally a Toyota Prius. The Prius is the lamest looking of the bunch, but it has a lot of buttons on the inside that do things like talk to me and make topographic maps float above my head. It even has a rear view camera so I can see evil ninja tacos approaching from behind. The geek in me, which is a large part of me, is rather satisfied.
And it gets eighty-fiveity billion miles per gallon so I bet I’ll pick up some hot hippie chicks in it. Yay…
Today is my last day at LucasArts. Some of you know where I’m headed but for now I’m going to keep it all hushed up. Don’t worry though, I’ll post about it in just over a week. Think of it this way, if you still visit my website then you’ll have something to look forward to!
So onward I go. Into the sunset. On a horse…
