Definitely want to check that fanmade Skyrim expansion after having finally solved this ball busting unknown follower "interloper" bug freezing me outside the vampire castle. I gave up on the game for months because of it.

Poor guy, he doesn't know what's coming for him. He's going to be rudely awoken from a dream-world that he envisioned AAA game development to be.

He could have been living his dream life if he instead had focused on creating and producing his own games and selling them.

Steady paycheck, millions of people anticipating, large bonuses when those millions preorder, etc., vs no paycheck, knowing that you're one flubbed release away from bankruptcy, having to personally finance your games, etc.

It isn't like creating and producing your own games is lucrative for many, or as rewarding as many make it out to be. It's ridiculously stressful and, like with restaurants, most people fail at it and end up in huge debt.

There are advantages to both sides.

So instead we'd have more mod projects turn into full retail turds? Or have to wait a decade? DayZ and Black Mesa Project come to mind.

Cool that another excellent modder landed himself a job in the industry, though going to Bungie is like getting drafted by the Cleveland Browns...

Anyway, good luck to him.

Ok I can understand the Bungie-Console hatred, but the last 'dud' in Bungie's career was ODST, which was still good. Not often you hear of a company buying itself back from a publisher.
