Uh oh!

Just saw that this blog got linked to on Massively. Does this mean I have to start updating it for real?

Here’s the quick update: Assassin’s Creed II: Buy it. But not until you’ve forced yourself to play through the first one. The first gets a bit repetitive, but the payoff is worth it to play the second, which is just amazing.

After I beat ACII, I immediately switched over to the first Mass Effect and finished that up. Excellent game, but I was sad to see that I killed off two of my party members. Wish that had gone differently.

And now, I jumped right into the sequel. I hear it’s much better, so it remains to be seen.

That’s the quick gaming update. Yes, it’s true, I’m no longer with Cryptic. I wish them nothing but the best, as I love everyone in the company. In the meantime, if anyone knows of some awesome Community position anywhere, please don’t hesitate to let me know 🙂

  1. Bioware Austin has an Assistant Community Manager position open. Dunno if that’s too junior or not for you.

    Good luck on the job search!


  2. Hey, David. Sorry to see you go, but just know there are those that still care. I don’t know what is best for you, but try out ArenaNet. They have plenty of openings. I don’t know where your talents lie, but at least take a look. All the best.


  3. I’m not sure if they are at that stage yet, but Jeff Strain’s Undead Labs is looking for a range of positions.


    Or maybe try 38 Studios, since they will need to get working on some community infrastructure worked out when Copernicus gets unveiled.


    Best of luck, Daeke.

    • Best of Luck Daeke,

      Honestly i think this is a blessing given the mess that Cryptic are now in.

      The community will miss you.

  4. […] outright venom at times. Daeke did quite a bit with what he had and if anyone is looking, in fact, he wants another CM job (so must have unlocked that “Glutton for Punishment” perk in […]

  5. I was saddened to hear that you have left Cryptic as their CM. You did an admirable job considering the state of hate that the forums were roiling under. I have always admired the patience and tact that you dealt with vitriolic threads. A company would be fortunate to have you as their CM. I don’t think you will remain jobless for long and if so, it will be by choice. Your tact and reputation precede you and in your case, it’s admirable.
