Cool, maybe you can overstep your boundaries and recommend amarowaade for the character faces, lol. Don't really understand why they've never noticed him or at least stolen his work.

Me being hired means that anyone from the community can and may get noticed and picked up. Do you know if he's applied and got rejected?

No, but I was kidding about you recommending people from the community... just remembered that amarowaade's English skills are highly lacking, there may be too much of a language barrier to communicate efficiently for work, or they just didn't notice... don't really know, a shame either way. Would've loved to have been able to use his faces on consoles.

It's up to him.

Anyone can apply, and as 2K Sports showed, community work is a big factor.

Congratulations Leftos, hopefully your work can motive 2K to keep the PC release and even raise it to match consoles. You are proof of the importance of the PC gaming industry and that 2K must stop overlooking us.

Thanks bro. Once again congrats on getting a job. (Y) I hope you adjust fast to American style of life and get that 2K14 game best ever. Oh and will your Tools possibly come with the game..like NST and other?

Don't know about that, Rosque. Wouldn't bet on it, but then again, my crystal ball is broken.

Congratulations Leftos!
Back in my days, people with more posts had priority. Unfortunately I got this wrong, my post number is inflated a bit. At least %60 of my replies are non-sense, I had bad English + lack of comprehension back then. Colorful username is from my NBA modding days. Sorry everyone.

Thanks JaoSming for granting me this back.
