[ Game -> Interview ] - More info on Person: Nathan McDyer | More info on Game: Fallout 3

There's a new installment in the "Inside the Vault" series at the Bethblog. This one is on Associate Producer Nathan McDyer. Highlights:

1) What’s your job at Bethesda?

I’m an associate producer of content for Bethesda Game Studios. I mostly deal in trying to figure out how to get all the environment and special effects art that people want done in the time allotted. Basically I hammer square pegs into round holes.

2) What prior projects have you worked on?

As an associate producer I’ve worked on Shivering Isles and Knights of the Nine. Prior to that, I was a quality assurance tester on Pirates of the Caribbean: Legend of Jack Sparrow, Oblivion, Call of Cthulhu, Airborne Troopers, IHRA Drag Racing 2005, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Bloodmoon.

...

6) How long have you been playing Fallout, and how would you describe your feelings towards the franchise?

Unfortunately I got in to Fallout late. I was unemployed and in high school with Fallout 1 and when 2 came out Starcraft had consumed my free time. So my first foray into Fallout wasn’t until about 3 years ago, I picked up the first one had a blast with it. Who knew that MacGuyver could be such an evil ****?

Read the whole thing here.

Maybe it's because I just woke up (too early, it's still hot as all hell in here) but I get the distinct impression that dude here is the next runner up for Douche Almighty (starring Jim Carrey and Gordon Freeman, crowbar and all). The synopsis is as follows. Jim Carrey is god, and he commissions a shitton of xbox games for this man to work on. Because melanoma, weiner dogs and playing shiesty shootan games are his priorities, Gordon Freeman kills him with three snarks, then in the final climax battle, uses the other two snarks he has to jump over the edge of the level and cut 15 seconds off his HL: Done Quick run.

It strikes me that Beth employs asshats. Anyone notice this trend?

Maybe he took umbrage with Killian wanting to shut down Gizmo's house of fun?
