[ Person -> Interview ] - More info on Person: Emil Pagliarulo

There is a "bit different" interview over at the bethblog with Emil Pagliarulo from Bethesda Softworks - producers of the upcoming Fallout 3 game for PC, XBOX360, and PS3.

Finally, describe a typical day in the life of Emil Pagliarulo.
Lately, considering where we are in Fallout’s development, my days have been less than typical, since I’ve been in something of a self-imposed crunch. But if I were to average everything out, it would look something like:

  • Get up between 7:00am and 8:00am
  • Help get my kids dressed and fed
  • Take my two older boys to school at 9:00am
  • Get to the office around 9:30am
  • Worktime! Days at the Bethesda offices lately have been ranging anywhere from 8 to 16 hours. In that time, I:
  • Write and edit dialogue
  • Play the game and report bugs
  • Fix my own bugs
  • Work with the designers on any issues they may have
  • Attend meetings
  • Run my own crazy ideas by Todd Howard
  • Sundry other tasks

When I get home, it’s family time — I play with my kids; help with homework; watch my wife make dinner and nonchalantly ask, “Do you need any help?” and then get the kids drinks after she rolls her eyes.

The kids are in bed anywhere from 8:00pm to 9:00pm, and after that my wife and I usually watch a movie, or I play games while she watches crappy reality TV about people whose lives generally suck.

Add into that mix some weight lifting, some reading, a lot more game playing, maybe some writing, and that’s my typical day.

Definitely not the regular style of interview to come out of the bethblog, as there isn't much about Fallout 3 at all. Acheng apparently wouldn't mind some feedback, so if you have an account over at the Bethesda forums, maybe let 'em know how you feel about this change of pace.
