What game company would you like to work for?
Of course we all want to work with games for a living, but we’re not talking about our oxymoronic positions as “Games Journalist” here. We mean actually working with the companies who make games - big time developers/publishers, stuff like that. Got a company you’d like to end up toiling a 9-to-5 for? Now, bear in mind that Nintendo, Bioware, Capcom don’t hire people purely on the basis of being “huge fans,” so try and think of a specific role you’d be ideal for, one that’d benefit your company of choice just by hiring you. Let us know in our forums and we may read your response LIVE on TalkRadar 136!

    Also if Seth doesn't appear on episode 136, it has been one whole year of him not being present on an episode.
  • TURbo - January 26, 2011 4:18 p.m.

  • EwoksTasteLikeChicken - January 24, 2011 8:40 p.m.

    Sorry Scott, for some reason I thought you were from KOXM. No idea why, since you're Butterworth and the other one's Reyburn(?) As an added thought I think that you should get Ryan McCafrey on here. Or Andy Bowman.

    Please bring Seth Killian back for a podcast. I'm having an odd Skiliian withdrawal.
  • TruckThunders - January 23, 2011 11:03 p.m.

    This episode was great, but I think the show needs some new sound effects.
