Been workin in the games industry and freelance for about 20 years and considering 90% of jobs are based on a verbal contract I've never actually been stiffed, A remarkable testament to the Moral fortitude and honesty of most people, that record is unblemished,,,,, untill now.
A kid from deviant art asked me to do a tattoo design for him based on his idea, I charged him a paltry fee, a quarter of what I usually ask cos he's just a teenager, he loved it, loved it so much he's had it etched permanently on his skin, cost him $500 at the tattooists, I however am apparently beneath paying, yes! somebody can respect you're work yet disrespect t
Spent the last hour watching video's on Youtube about the first game i did, Wolverine Adamantium Rage, Everybody was slagging it off, all quoting the mind numbing hard gameplay, I have to agree with them, thankfully most said the graphics are good. makes me wish maybe I'd taken a bit more notice of what people around me were doing rather than keeping my head down and hoping I didn't F it up, that's something to remember for the future.
Christ I could write a book on what you don't know, We wanted Aircraft carriers but Nintendo veto'd it, Originally the game was meant to be more open and freeform but Nintendo wanted a more Level by Level aproach, So many things and I can't remember half of them. John Kerry was the original inspiration for Colonel Austin, he had a pipe that blew bubbles ( pipe veto'd by Big N), then people started argueing about him, I said " If we make him black nobody will complain" ( Sarcastically), the lead loved that Idea. And so on and so on, The F1's about to start so maybe I can try and remember stuff latter, Sooo many years ago .
do you remember anything about the online co-op mission that had tundra and the solar empire in it with the solar dreadnought and spy blimps that was cut it was named MP16 in the files it just skips over it leading me to believe it was cut late in development it goes MP15,MP17
