Where do I apply?

Good to see they are that committed to their job. Hopefully they are continuously given the right nomenclature too, so they don’t keep calling magazines “clips” in games.

Sign me up @ Gearbox.

“We’ve got an arsenal of weapons — from authentic WW2 small arms to futuristic guns that inspired Borderlands to an actual Pulse Rifle from Aliens that fires .45 caliber ammunition.

I have the Brothers in Arms games (I felt like I was in Normandy) if they do their story well like crysis 2 it will be a great game.
