  •                 CCP and White Wolf Invade Game Developer’s Conference!
     
     San Francisco, CA – March 5-9
     
     When EVE Online Publisher CCP out of Iceland, merged with White WolfGame Studio out of Atlanta one could only wonderwhat combineddebauchery these two notorious party companiesmight unleash upon thegames industry.
     
     Well, if you’re interested in working in the game business, moving up inthe game business, or just want to see if your liver can keep up withthe combined might of these two titans of intoxication and party likethere is no tomorrow, here is your chance.
     
     "We’re recruiting, have a drink!" said Mike Tinney, President of CCPNorth America.  CCP and White Wolf invite any prospective candidates tovisit their booth for a party invite. "Ég hlakka mikið til að verða afardrukkinn, varpa fólki yfir höfuð mér og kljúfa það í herðar niður."
     added CCP CEO Hilmar Petursson. What if you’re not able to make it tothe booth?  Well, as it happens, these guys know a lot about hangovers,so all you need to do to get into the party is bring your resume.  And,just to make it nteresting, the highest caliber resume received willwin a one year subscription to EVE Online; a trip to the EVE Online Fan
     Fest and   a complete collection of the World of Darkness book line.
     
     CCP, the lads that are known for bringing a bar as part of their boothto every convention they attend, and, White Wolf, whose cult status asthe guys who brought goths, girls and a never ending supply ofintoxicated hi-jinks to the hobby game industry "might just be the most boisterous combination GDC has ever seen," stated one industry insider who asked to remain anonymous.
     
     Come join us for some food, drink and fun – not necessarily in that order!
     
     
     The CCP /White Wolf Party
     Thursday, March 8, 2007 -- 8:00pm to 2:00am
     GLAS KAT in SOMA
     (2.5 blocks from the convention center)
     520 Fourth Street
     San Francisco, CA 94107

     Sounds like it will be a blast.  If I lived anywhere near there I'd go.
     
     And get drunk of course.

     Yes, that be the one I had in mind.  I took one of him looking all contemplative at E3 2004.  I think it's still listed on the old WoDMod site.  It'd be funny if it is him, because when he comes back he'll be all like...
     "Jesus, within 2 days you psychos have not only figured out who I am, but you're posting PICTURES OF ME?!?"
     
     As I recall, he was like the liaison between Activision and Troika, or maybe Activision and White Wolf.  Either way, I understand the "Maverick" bit since afaik CCP isn't associated with either Troika or Activision.

     In all honesty though, who can come across as good-looking when standing next to Erin as Jeanette?

     I have to echo arathalion's sentiments about the whole "other side of the world" bit.  But I'll be in the US this summer, so if WW/CCP have any plans to set up a booth at E3, I might try to pester them and/or IGN to get me in again this year.  It'll be more of a long shot, given E3's new "less is more" format, but if they build it I will come...and I'll be sure to bring the hotness.  For now, just tell'em to pack plenty of Stoli and Red Bull.
