  1. I hate to say it but Battlecry has made a huge mistake associating their studio with Zenimax/Bethesda. Bethesda is fast becoming a laughing stock in the gaming industry, and it will only get worse once Bethesda announces all DLC for the PS3 version of Skyrim are cancelled. Dishonored comes out next week which means Bethesda will be announcing rhe cancellation after the game releases.

    • Is another plan of the Illuminati to disappear with something. Like Michael Jackson you know? for the PS3 a DLC who never comes, causing depression and death. For the singer a lot of remedies and a bad doctor.

      Is BGS a bunch of ancient aliens? A lot of users love the Dragonborn.. a hero with a dragon soul, like the order of Dracul or Dagon.. reptilians! that´s it!

    • Because nobody hires unexperienced people, but you can’t get experience without already having experience. It’s a vicious cycle.

      Although, I’d wager that the gaming industry is one of the easier ones to get experience in- modding and indie games are both pretty good ways to get your foot in the door.
