I'm no longer with EA. I got lured from LA (where, in hindsight, I had it pretty good) to work in EA's Montreal studio. It was a crap 10 month experience. Promises that were made to me were broken, and I just got fed up with the company. I left and joined another company, which, in hindsight, I should not have joined so quickly. Sigh. Fuckin' Montreal.

Hey Sspad! Still living in the midwest?
Hey Dole! Still work for the BBC?
Hey Carnivore! Still slapping your forehead over the Bruins' collective ineptitude?
Hey Cosmo! Still doing whatever you did when last I was on here?

1. I went to school and got a teaching degree and it has been the most rewarding chapter of my life thus far working as a teacher

2. lied about getting a teaching degree on a message board just now

3.

I just read a stupid newspaper article about EA. There was this line about how "EA's Rock Band is going to compete with Activision's Guitar Hero" except Rock Band and Guitar Hero are DEVELOPED BY THE SAME FUCKING COMPANY YOU CORPORATE JERK PUBLISHERS WHO THINK YOU OWN EVERY GAME JUST BECAUSE YOU PAY SOME MONEY TO PUT IT ON THE SHELF

Yeah, I know EA actually has a hand in the development of Rock Band, but Harmonix is obviously the main contributor. :/

Sorry Mr. Buffalo, I don't mean to hijack your thread. Welcome back.

Sucks to hear about your job, BT. I have a friend in Vancouver who turned down a job with EA because he didn't like what he heard about them from everyone.

Yeah, EA Montreal was pretty shitty. They told me I'd work less hours than I worked in EA Los Angeles, which was a complete lie. A girl I was dating at the time ditched me because I was working so much. I'm still bitter about the experience.

Sorry to hear about the job probs man...

Would you come back to EA here if they had a decent job for ya now that you said you had it pretty good there in hindsight, or are you done with that company forever now?

I'd only work for EA if the job was in one of their California studios. The Canadian studios seem to suck ass.

Yeah that's why I said the EA studios here as opposed to the ones up in Canada. So since you're not happy with your current place, are you looking for game industry jobs elsewhere?

Most definitely. I want to work with people I like, and with whom I've worked previously. Plus, I was crazy to leave California for Montreal. That place is a dump.

Shit, you're right. But I'm going to pretend that I was only talking about Guitar Hero 1 and 2 so my argument is still valid.
