If you've always dreamed of working at Shift 2: Unleashed studio Slightly Mad Studios, proving that you have a passion for games is crucial, with Design Lead Andy Tudor revealing that he "wouldn't hire anyone with less than 20,000 gamerscore".
really? they are really looking at gamerscores to hire people to work for them
That's all you need these days >_< Honestly that's quite sad. Below, I don't even know why people care about either of them, I used to try and then I realized ...what was the point? I don't pursue them anyway. Be good if a reward system was brought in. Xbox 720 and Ps4 rewards please/ Then fu** me I would do them all.
lol no one gives a damn about trophies other then us PS fans.
It would be great if you got all the acheivments for a game you got a free movie rental or arcade game.
"I wouldn't hire anyone with less than 20,000 gamerscore" i guess thats why Shift 2 sucked, when a light and small lotus behave like a heavy and giant impalla 77....you know they obviously doesnt know their shit.
20,000? Sweet! I make the cut with almost 3,000 points to spare! Now I have to work on my trophies.
Obviously not the ONLY criteria... but no different then the director reference. I am not going to hire a director to direct my movie if they don't watch movies. Experience in your job means a lot. Some people can bring different things to the table in a job... but you definetly want to find the people that are involved in the actual mechanics of the job itself. A few things I would reference in similar points: Don't hire an Athiest as a preacher. Don't hire a peta activist to work at a slaughter house. Don't have a vegetarian to cook at your next barbeque. Don't have a monk give you marital advice. They could all possibly do the task but they wouldn't be the best choice because they would all lack that something that is needed.
Asking people outside of the norm is a great idea most of the time. It gives you a different point of view that you would have most likely have never seen.
@Chewy102 Never too late for a comment. I think the primary thought was you don't go to these areas for expertise in a field. Asking anyone on the street for help will get you plenty of outside the norm advice too... but I wouldn't recommend it as a pratice. But to hire someone outside of the norm that doesn't have the experience you need to develope is throwing money away.
My gamer score is almost a 20,000, not quite yet I dont think. I wonder if they would be willing to add my trophies(level 6) with my GS(18,000?). Then im totally over 20K. Ohh and I got some steam achievements too. Add them up I got way more then 20K. lol edit-- but I have requirements too. I only want to work for devs that make games that I want to play, unfortunately slightly mad studios is not one of the many.
There goes the PS3 owner developers.... -End statement
They need to hire people that actually know cars so many errors like Honda 2000 listed as a v4 when its a v6 or how they named the gtr specV when its Vspec
A Honda S2000 is not a v6
lol, Honda S2000 is not a V6 or V4 but a naturally aspirated inline 4. And this is the same person that will be telling me how arcady Forza is when they no absolutely nothing about cars.
forza is over exaggerated period how can you put a k20 into a eg and keep the standard transmission same applies for RB26's going into silvas
Have you played Forza at all? First of all, the K20 engine i will assume is the K20 from the Honda K-series. If thats it, then there is no reason why a standard transmission can not fit because it is just a 2000cc engine that outputs between 215bhp and 270bhp in standard tune. As for the RB26, yes it does fit into Silvias and there are dozens of youtube videos to prove it. As for the gearbox, if you have full sim mode active, the standard gearbox will break after a couple of laps. Maybe that,s how you play the game,Tune cars to the max, retain casual difficulty settings and then b*tch when there are no consequences.
its impossible fitting a k20a into a d series transmission also they let you put b18c into stock eg's
When you change the engine, you also take the gearbox with that engine. Upgrading the gearbox just changes the performance of it (i.e. fitting straight-cut gears or fitting a sequential 'box). Oh and you have no right to criticise when you think an S2000 is a V6.
@ Scotracer: You are 100% correct. When you swap engines, you also get the gearbox associated with that engine by default. Only upgrading engines will you be able to retain your standard gearbox and if you don't beef up the gearbox, they will get damaged with time. shikamaroooo just continues to prove that he is just an ignorant fanboy.
yeah but in forza 3 when u change to a k20 it keeps the eg transmission (5speed) where as a k20 is 6
It doesnt have a v6 it has a N/A I4... ... Beaten to it
my bad iv always thought the F20c was a V6 someone mentioned it to me but after looking it up it is a V4
IT'S NOT A V4. It's an inline 4.
I have a s2000. fastest 4 cylinder out
A Ford Focus RS is faster.
I would never do this. Since when should chivo's conflict on real life?
Bit of an odd approach..
Wouldn't it be more interesting to ask what games the person plays or check where the achievements come from. If it's all Barbie Horse Adventures and Kinectimals I wouldn't want that person involved in a racing game.
Honestly, I don't even talk to people with less than 20k gamerscore.
Same here but it's 20 platinum trophies for me. That way they would have had to actually finish 20 games and not just run up a shitload of f=random achievements to add up to 20K. :P
It was a joke people. That's why thee was a ":P" at the end.
thats why this games is trash
Another "quality" way to benchmark people ! Next we will need to own one of their t-shirts :D
Their knowledge of cars is a complete joke. Thats why Shift is so unrealistic when it comes to the cars. They should consult Polyphonic Digital they know their stuff when it comes to cars. Since i mentioned Polyphonic Digital i probably will get bashed by 360 owners. But its the truth they know a lot about cars.
20thousanjdn ot that hig anywy. tewnty thouands a noob. don't want my games made by anyoe ess than 100000 cvore or trophies!!!
I SAID… 20thousanjdn ot that hig anywy. tewnty thouands a noob. don't want my games made by anyoe ess than 100000 cvore or trophies!!!
ooooooooo thanks for clearing that up for me!
So, comparitive to Trophy Level, what is that? Like...Level 12?
Not that high. 9-10 maybe, I think.
Thats good, means I qualify :)
That's retarded. Some of us game on all platforms, not just one.
He probably didn't mean it as only xbox achievements. HE probably just meant to say he wouldn't hire people who hardly ever play, whether they use steam, psn, or live doesn't matter... I bet he just said achievements cause it's the better known system.
Well Achievements > Trophies. His comment makes sense.
I prefer trophies myself. I like the platinum trophy that shows you have earned all trophies for a single game. To each his own I guess.
Do you have a platinum trophy yet for MGS4.... No? I rest my case. But I agree. To each his own.
^^Do you have any achievements for MGS4...... No? I rest my case. But I agree as well. To each his own.
Do you even have MGS4 on 360? Achievements for MGS4?? That was probably the worst example you could have come up with. I also didn't disagree with you. I even added the "To each his own" part because it really is up to personal preference.
What he's really trying to say is that he wouldn't hire a person who's not an avid gamer. It not like the job requirements for a position would say "Minimum 20000 Gamerscore"
It's obvious what he meant but it will be taken out of context by most people here. Others just like to have fun in the comment section. :)
I dunno. "wouldn't hire anyone with less than 20,000 gamerscore" That doesn't seem like it can really be taken out of context. Unless they went in and changed the quote. Or left off the entire beginning, but I can't think of one that would change what he said. Unless he was like, "I would never say that I --- ."
It just shouldn't be taken literally. If he was in charge of a newspaper he could have said "I wouldn't hire anyone who doesn't watch CNN", it doesn't mean that if you watch BBC news you have no chance...it means you're supposed to watch the news...
I think that's a dumb thing to do. Stuff like that should never be black or white. What if someone doesn't care so much about achievements at all? Or plays on PC, without Steam? I personally don't care at all about the M$ peeing contest, and only try to get all the achievements for a few games. As in, L4D and L4D2. & this summer I'm going to get all of Portal 2.
I have 33644 gamerscore :P
I don't play 360 that much but I have 1500 Trophies which is a great amount of games and 6 platinums.
People obey like sheep's they don't have balls. Ok i have 1.000.000 gamer-score and i don't want to work for the shift game if the developers don't have a 9 inch D..k and a monkey in their asses. Pff who the hell they think they are? Just a bunch of rich people who like to toy with others. FK off.
Still...it boils down to what you play. You could probably rack up an impressive gamer score with just sports games and shooters alone. I would be more interested in what kinds of games and how many you've played instead. The breakdown of your gamerscore is much more important than the total...
I've played 300 or so methinks.
that CAN just mean achievement whore. so you may get a few OCD's in there
