[ Company -> Interview ] - More info on Company: Bethesda Softworks

In this issue of Inside the Vault you can read an interview with Daniel Lee, an Environment Artist:

What other games have you worked on?

The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion and the Shivering Isles expansion are my only two shipped titles. (...)

What would you say is your personal favorite game of all time?

Wow, that’s a hard one. I’m going to cheat and pick two: Mega Man 2 and Sonic the Hedgehog 2.

notice that they are both side-scrolling action games as well. Hmm, this guy, and the last liked Contra 3. Noticing a pattern here? Has anybody who worked on F3 even PLAYED an RPG besides Oblivion?

He looks alot like Gabe from Penny Arcade. Maybe abit less pig-like, but still. Maybe all console fags are starting to look the same to me or something.

Well, with so many video games to play, long hours at work, doing art on my own time, AND having a girlfriend, I have very little time to do much else. When that does occur though Iíll use that time to study some Japanese. I also used to be quite fond of rock climbing, though I havenít done it in years.

what an interesting and multifaceted fellow

i particularly like how it's phrased "...AND having a girlfriend" like he perceives that as some kind of herculean achievement. mudd up!

Does it take the many tards to make a shitty game. Glad Beth pulled out all the stops and hired someone with 1 game under his belt....I can go to bed just that much more assured that FO3 will be the crapper I expect it to be. Fuck, who needs the brain trust here at NMA or DAC. Time to sit Todd and the rest of the overstimulated asses at Beth, and tell them their problem is Denial.

I am noticing a strange trend of malnutrition and paleness in the Bethesda staff. Could they be wasting away because of their "Fucking up Fallout" guilt? The answer and more at 11..

Atoga, for a Bethie boy to have a girlfriend IS an achievement - not only does he no longer have to watch gay midget porn, but there is the POSSIBILITY he might actually get a kiss from a real live woman, instead of just his top-of-the-line blowup doll.

How do you know the 'girlfriend' isn't actually something he created with the Oblivion character editor?

If you own 700+ Consoles Games, you're easily persuaded, are tasteless, live in an unreal twitch world, and have an IQ based on the mature rating of the last game you play. Bottom of the barrel.

Remember when bilbo got all the dwarves outta elf prison in murkwood by putting them in barrels? Man, I sure wish someone would make a video game about that... Radiant barrel... A smaller world than oblivion, sure, but the NPCS are more complicated! There's apple, which has a complex daily routine that involved digging into your ribs and sometimes getting a little mushy... then there's Beard, which is like your father figure in the game, it's attached to the front of your head, so you have to follow it around all the time and make complex moral decisions, like if you want to use the portable nuclear trimmer on it or maybe some wax, all eluded to in the thirty second "ending" animation. The choices you make about apple and beard in the game will totally affect your ending too! Like if you get the "good" ending, then you and apple and beard live a happy life, apple graduates, and then you die surrounded by your dwarf family.. but if you get the "evil" ending, you climb out of the barrel and use apple and beard to rule the world...

Man, I love choices in my games. And that radiant barrel technology is awesome! It has a texture... and, brace yourself... You can see it. Radiantly.

Dan was part of the Oblivion intern class who helped us down the final stretch. Our games are big so we rely on the extra manpower that interns provide. Dan is now a full time artist, working on Fallout 3.

Translation: "We pay zero salary to desperate, semi-competent chimps and people still buy our crappy pseudo-RPG games! It's a win-win-win situation for everybody!"

Seriously, owning 782 shitty console games is what it takes to be a full-time artist at Bethesda? Their hiring practices must be retarded.

Can we expect dust-coloured pikmin in F3, along with jumping puzzles? Great.

I don't have time to read this thread, if you live up to the standards it should all be something similar to what I'm about to say.

What the fuck does it matter? Is this news? The last half dozen have clearly proven that they do not know dick about Fallout. They all love shooters, D&D, "action-rpg's," platformers, or some other choice from a plethora of stupidity. They all worked on Oblolion and Shivering Lols. They all play background roles in Fallout 3's development. THIS IS MORONIC. I'm not flipping JHMN shit for posting this stupid crap over and over or even this asian dude for liking mediocre games and probably never having played fallout; this is Bethesda. WE BOUGHT THE RIGHTS TO FALLOUT BECAUSE WE ALL LOVE IT HERE AND WANT TO DO IT JUSTICE BY CONTINUING IT INTO THE NEW MILLENIUM et cetera et cetera I don't give a fuck. I'm so sick of hearing about this game. I had never planned on hating a fallout game this much. To make it all worse Bethesda picked up on the answer they were getting FROM THEIR OWN PEOPLE and stopped asking "LOL HAEV U PLAIED FALELUT?!" in these interviews. Fucking christ, every new bit of info makes me wish they would've kept their ugly mouths shut about the game so I wouldn't have to be tortured by the ridiculousness of the entire concept, development, and execution.

Would be really funny if Interplay came back from the dead and reclaimed the rights to Fallout through some devilish Herve-Caeny scheme right about now, and made Fallout: Tactics 2. Ha ha ha, how I would laugh.
