Have you ever had one of those gaming moments where you seem to go through a "phase" of either a certain franchise or genre? If you don't know what I'm talking about, maybe it will start to make sense as I go on.
Recently, I've had my plate filled with games that I need to either finish playing, or in some cases, get around
to playing. But with the recent graduation from school comes the not-so-fun-and-ever-time-consuming adventure of job searching. Do you know how hard it is to get a job in the game industry as a Game/Level Designer in San Francisco when everyone seems to be getting into the "social games" business? Not so easy (and before you ask, yes, I've been looking outside of my own area, thank you very much), especially when you've been trained in designing/modeling for triple-A 3D games. That, and I had a contract gig at LucasArts coming up.
With the little time I've been devoting to my own personal entertainment in playing games comes my all-too-common predicament: I simply don't have enough time to play all these games. Just to give you an idea...
I think it's time for some Donkey Kong Country Returns
