After a lot of work and even more traveling, I find myself sitting in the GameSpot UK offices. While experiencing life in London for the first time, I receive an invite from Guy, Alex, and the rest of the crew. And it's not something I could refuse…especially when my first job is to bring you some brand new gameplay movies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
So what am I going to be doing here? I'm happy to announce that I'm the latest intern on the editorial team and couldn't be more overjoyed at the opportunity. I'll be here for three weeks and will hopefully show the guys that I can cut it at the top level. Already, I'm learning new things and adapting to the intricacies of a workplace that any writer would strive to achieve.
Hailing from Kent, it's quite a commitment taking three weeks out here. Already, the opportunity has begun to pay off. I've spent the day capturing footage from the much-anticipated Modern Warfare 2--a game that, if you hadn't heard already, officially graces store shelves today. The process of capturing footage and getting it ready for the Web site has already implanted itself into the depths of my brain; a good start to what will be an interesting 15 days. The first of my Modern Warfare 2 footage is below:
There's a lot for me to learn here, and I couldn't be more excited to have the chance to show off not only my writing skills, but also all of the other skills required for making it in this business. It's been a busy two months for me, and finally my writing is getting noticed. Moving into GameSpot UK Towers for three weeks is a natural progression that will only add fuel to a fire that is already burning so brightly for success.
