    • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Sven Nietzsche I'm glad I could help some of you guys. I for one have no interest in entering the 'Video Game Industry', but I found the articles I read interesting enough to create this.[/quote]It should also reduce the requests for repeat interviews.

    • Hey! You're a pretty cool guy! Thanks for this; while I have real interest in getting into the game development field (barring some miracle, well-paying job in a writing department), its a nice to look through them all in a much more organized fashion. Cheers! °°°
