New Inside the Vault feature at the Bethsoft, this time with Mike Lipari:
What’s your job at Bethesda?
I’m a Senior Programmer and the Systems Group Lead. Which is an official way of saying I fix stuff when its broke.
What would you say is your personal greatest game of all time?
Oblivion. I still find myself hooked on occasion. I start it up to look at a bug in GOTY and find myself sneak shotting bandits just to see their corpses tumble over ledges. If we let nostalgia factor in though, then its probably Contra 3 on the SNES. Back in the day I’d beat it in one man, starting on easy and working up through hard while using only the basic gun, just to kill time.
Is the master file currently up or down?
The master file is up. At least until Jon Paul checks in…
