I'll try to get to it sooner rather than later... but at an hour long, it probably won't be until after the weekend. I've been thinking of getting into it, from the writing perspective mainly. I'd love to develop gameplay ideas and write for games, but I'm not up for programming. I've applied a few times to a marketing position at Bethesda, as I have loads of video and marketing experience.
 
It could be for some... I'll probably want to see the whole thing though.
 
Y'know what would be helpful with these Google+ On Air hangouts? The option to make the video private until we want it published publicly. :/
 
+Sherilynn Macale :
You can't always get what you want,
But if you try sometimes, you get what you need.

Have a great weekend! And thanks for the video interview.
 
Just finished watching it. Great interview , it covered a wide variety of topics around the industry which was pretty neat. Also yay my question got asked :)!
 
Awesome interview +Sherilynn Macale. Big props to Mr. 402 +Robert Bowling for bringing the CM position, especially in the gaming industry to what it is today. Work hard and stay flexible. Semper Gumby!
 
Finally watching. This is very inspirational for me. I am a year out of college and I've realized what I studied in college is not anything close to what I want to do. Definitely want to get into the game industry. Just wondering if I should go back to school for it, or what. Not in a circumstance where I can just up and quit my job =/
