What's your name?

Dan Levin.

What's your job description / position?

Game Designer. On Fallout Tactics I've been pretty busy. My main job is to write all the dialogue for the game but I also do mission design, storyline and movie/cut scenes with the other designers (Ed Olson of Micro Forte and Fallout Guru Chris Taylor.

How long have you been doing this stuff?

I've been in the industry for 3 years and doing design for 1 ½ years. I was in the military before that so I realized that a job that I can enjoy yourself and be creative is more important than anything.

What stuff have your worked on in the past?

I just finished Start Trek New Worlds recently. I also wrote dialogue for Y2K the Game (a very small game).

If you could make any game you wanted, what'd it be?

Well, something along the lines of an FPS with RPG elements. I love the action and I'm real big on storyline.

What are a few of your favourite games?

StarCraft, Halflife, M.U.L.E. (for you old timers), EA's NHL games, Golden Eye, Kingpin, Ultima 2 through 4.

What do you usually do outside of work? (Extra-curricular activities?)

LA nightlife, inline hockey, play games, and follow the NY Rangers.

What are a few of your favourite films?

Braveheart, Matrix, Friday (not the sequel), True Romance.

What was the last film you saw?

On video it would be Mystery Men, which I thought was very funny. I don't go to the movies much but I watched X-Men on the big screen, which was very good considering I feared the worst.

Is there anything worthwhile on TV?

Family Guy, Simpsons, news. I gave up on cable for 3 years but I can now feel it calling to me.

What kind of music do you listen to?

Trance/Hard House, Rap, Rock.

What are a few of your favourite musical artists?

Christopher Lawrence, Ice Cube, Smear (local O.C. band)

What are a few of your favourite books?

Stainless Steel Rat and Bill the Galactic Hero by Harry Harrison. All the Dark Elf books by R.A. Salvatore. I've read so many books that many of them are lost and forgotten in the timeless void.

What celebrity would you be interested in meeting?

Hugh Heffner, Adam Sandler, Patricia Arquette.

What's in your home computer rig?

P2 350 with a TNT 1, 128M Ram and the worst modem on the planet. It's definitely time for an upgrade.

What electronic 'gadget' do you wish you had?

I've always wanted a top-notch digital camera and I would also like a MP3 player for my car.

What type of car do you drive?

A 93 Cougar XR7 that has seen better days but it did get me here from New York City.

What type of car do you wish you drove?

Anything but my 93 Cougar XR7

Coke or Pepsi?

I don't drink soda unless I'm in a bar and then its Coke as a mixer.

Boxers or briefs?

Boxer-Briefs. Very comfortable, good support and the ladies love em.

Thanks Dan!
