[ Company -> Interview ] - News related to Top Story: Fallout 3 news | More info on Company: Bethesda Softworks

Just in case anyone wants to read about it: another interview.

What’s your job at Bethesda?
I am a Senior Programmer in the area of Artificial Intelligence.

What other games have you worked on?
My first game was Morrowind on which I did interface and gameplay. I then did some minor AI, interface and gameplay work on Tribunal and Bloodmoon. On Oblivion I did most of the AI and I did some work on Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles. (...)

Worse job you’ve ever had?
One summer of my teenage years I worked as a cashier for Giant Food (supermarket). I was on my feet for 9 hours or more a day. Paranoid bosses that made you stand around every time you went on break counting your drawer of money while they looked at you as if you are trying to rip them off. Customers who constantly thought you were ripping them off of the sale price or going to scan an item twice.

Senior Programmer of AI? Experience is Morrowind and Oblivion? Oh god, I won't go there. I'm sorry, Ms. Hopgood, but oh my.

And now she's working at Bethesda, how ironic.

The only thing I remember Target for was that I found really nice looking candles there. Everything else is avalible... everywhere else... without the presence of psychotic henchmen/Target employees.
