That Kotor pic made me happy then the title made me sad :(

Greed and EA killed Kotor.

More like LucaArts, there is actually a chance Kotor could come back.... even more so with the fact EA did actually make a mmo in that universe. Still a small chance though.

If it's from Drew, take it. But then again prepare to have any creativity you have to be sucked out of you like they did to Drew's Mass Effect.

EVERYONE! Listen and THEN complain about it.

He talks about the process, not nearly as oppressive as you may imagine

Anyone could get a job writing for infinity ward.

Terrorists + WMDs + Russians = any Modern Warfare campaign.

But I will admit they've shaken things up for ghosts, now it's terrorists + WMDs + a doggie.

I am a writer, and I play games constantly. I write books and some screenplays mostly. Anyone know of a way I can apply for game writing? I would totally be down in helping mold a world... mostly RPG (my stories are fantasy or post apocalyptic genre).
