So I'm working at Midway, at my desk. And I'm browsing on Gametrailers and Youtube and it hits me. This is the stuff I had to wait till no one was looking to do at my old job. Stuff that I'd get in trouble for, watching gameplay vids & developer interviews, stuff I enjoy is work relevent?!?!?!? No FRIGGIN WAY!!?.

Today I met Ed Boon...



ED BOOOOOON!


Go back 13 years and tell me that I'd meet the guy who is behind the game I played in my sleep.
Yes there are the Yes's and No's about Mortal Kombat, but I dun friggin care He the Noob in Noob Saibot for godsakes.

BTW I'm learning all sorts a cool shit.

This job rocks, I hear it'll get harder


Bring it on.


Finally got internet access, sorry for not being around guys. There be a lot of work to be had and lessons to be learned. I'll get back to your messages whenver I can.

Bro, seeing your name in the production credits of a new MK would be SO AWSOME!
After watching your R.O.A.D. series, old fans (that havn't been keeping up) will be like "NO FREAKING WAY!!"

Monty IS MK DESTUND!!

I also just started my first full game job this week. Working for a game company can be so much fun, and the people are usually the kind of people you would normaly want to hang out with anyway.

But I know things can get very stressful when it's crunch time. So be prepaired for that.

Have fun at Midway!!!

It's alright. I've been pretty busy too. Working a new job. One that is no where as cool as yours however. And broke up with Jeff about 11 days ago. I don't know if I want back with him or not, I kind of like being single. So I've been stressed and stuff lately. Haven't had much time for my art either. But I'm hanging in there. I'm tough, I'll deal. :hug: :heart:

Ha, I see Midway just announced 4 Wii games, congrats. Personally I wouldn't want to end up working on Mortal Combat, was never really into that game.

Remember to be on the lookout for that mentor, you'll soon need him.

Lets make a new Marble Madness
game. ...with blood.

Awesome you're loving your job.
It's the greatest feeling for your
job to be what you enjoy. Not
everyone gets that.

I've heard them say find a job
you enjoy and you won't have to
work another day of your life.
I disagree, but I see the point.

I've never met you so I won't
pretend we're close friends. I
just enjoy what you do and
getting to watch what happens.

I'd love to colab some day, but
so would everyone. I wish you
the best. Take care Mr. Oum.

Aha, I see now. So it is Midway video games... That is cool; especially if he could get to work on an actual Mortal Combat series game. I have a hunch after watching that Halo/Samus video he made, he might make the next MK interesting for the better. :D

So when you say "Midway" you actually meant Midway video game company?
