That was very cool.
And fairly informative to boot.

That was...cool.

Je ne comprende pas "the point" of posting it here, but at least it was interesting.

What was our first "science" game? I want to say it was either Civilization or SimEarth...

Ill say, game lot to think about, and the whole idea of it all been in one place is a great idea for development purposes!

They had me sold @ 0:51

"Tobacco Road" is the name I normally see attached to this region. Not PC enough anymore?

Why is there a five minute commercial advertised as a escapist video?

Go go Gadget advertising revenues!

I had a major lol at the guy at 2:55

Many times when people hear that you work on video games for a living, the inclination is to think that we sit around and play games all day, and that's not true.

It took them over a minute to mention where research triangle was (for some reason they think there's only one in the US??). THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT NORTH CAROLINA!!!

Hey it's my town! Hey it's my old school! Hey it's my old professor Dr. Young! Hey it's that convention I go to every year!

Seriously, love this area. I mean, take a look: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gamedevnet/4579481167/sizes/o/

And there's QUITE a few more.

Care to guess where Escapist HQ is located? I'm building a collection of Escapist swag from all the events I run into them at...

I'm scratching my head, are they trying to get me to move to North Carolina or something?

I think the intended audience was missed here.

I actually live right next to research triangle park...
everyone jealous now?

It will take more than a pretty advertisement to coax me out of Sunny California.

Yeah, that was my impression. You wouldn't have gotten away with putting something like that in the forum. I guess the Escapist's just looking for more ways to make cash?

Nope not jealous. I live a few miles from Bungie, Microsoft, Nintendo, Popcap games, Nc Soft,and a few others I'm sure that I'm forgetting. And have a few friends in those various companies that I talk to regularly. Its nice having these contacts as I would like to get into the gaming industry. Getting my degree in computer animation at the moment.

Nice to know there is another hub for this stuff. Just in case I ever wanna move to the east coast.

I supose it follows a behind the scenes theme? but did it actualy tell us anything new?

Finally, someone realizes how awesome we are...
