Default I got an interview with EA

Yeah, I know they're the devil, but I'm a lowly derp. Applied for user interface position (considering my web design background and indie game dev stuff, I figured I could be a potential candidate for that sort of thing).

Kind of excited. Even though. You know. the devil. And all that. It's my first interview with a studio of any kind, so regardless of outcome, it's a neat first step.

Holy shit, congratulations, and good luck!

Grats!

Perhaps if you offer them other people's souls, they'll spare your own?

When you get in let us know which developer they've targeted next for destruction, so we can save our wallets ahead of time

Or maybe "take a Grandpa to work day"?

Congrats, and welcome to the dark side when you get the job. Devil or not, that's one hell of an impressive resume bullet if you can get it.

congratulations wigz! Though i'm sure you'll have to trade in your scripting knowledge for witchcraft or something.

Good luck with working for the (voted) worst corporation in America!

Still an epic opportunity. And on the upside, you might get free cupcakes!

Hehe, let's just say if I get the position I don't start until next May. In the mean time I can hunt around for more options. Disney and ILM are hiring in a couple months. I would actually like to work for some smaller studios if I can help it, though. Gots to do the research.

In any case, interview is tomorrow, so I'll tell you guys how it goes. Thanks for the words of...dis...enc...er....words. Thanks for words!

Gave you advice? Not "You got the job", but advice?!

He was pretty open about the fact that big studio = corporate idiots giving bad/counterintuitive demands on production to fulfill some quota/goal based on a statistic. That's all part of it.

The more I think about it, the more I'd love to work at a smaller studio anyway. BUT, that being said, I won't turn down an opportunity at this point. :B
