I was ready to faint when I read this. There's got to be a higher power at work here!



I'm actually being considered to be part of the development team for Halo! This isn't a guarantee I'll have this job, but it's a start. Funny thing though, this was the last job posting I thought I'd ever get considered for, let alone even a response. I guess I had a really strong cover letter (I didn't lie, but just bragged a bit and made some really bold claims and sort of "challenged" the skills of Microsoft's current development team). Keep me in your prayers, I going to need 'em.

EDIT: Got another email. It's looking pretty good IMO :)

Various game related projects and demos. I've also written a fix for Aliens versus Predator. Right now I'm focusing all of my attention on a game featuring Homer Simpson shooting hordes of zombies. I can't say it will match up to Resident Evil, but at least the sound effects are funny :)

@makotech222: Sorry, but I much prefer it as a console game. I'm sure they will release it for the PC, but probably not yet.

@Spyhop: Would you like Halo any more if it were like what it was originally intended to be (i.e. RTS, 3rd Person Shooter, with the original but removed content, etc)? It's amazing how one person can ruin such a great game. The project lead was called "a crack head" by the original devs, and is no longer there (afaik he got fired years ago).

I was going to remove the Cxbx details, but I forgot.

Good luck, blueshogun. Hope you get the job.


(what's with the response, though? It looks like it could use some grammar check or something)

I don't wanna be a pessimist (nor ruin the moment) but the only thing thing that comes to mind when reading that email is "Don't count your chicken until there hatched" expression, the entire subject there is that they would like some clarification on the resume (though that does mean they have some interest), but it never was specified they would want to go hire you just that there are some clarifications they would want. Still don't get me wrong that email is a good step so good luck with getting the job :thumb:
