Re: Languages you know
I had to use it acouple of times, mainly when working on new engines. I did more AI and engine development. I never went into graphics too much, physics was another aspect I worked on (and often used Assembly). But you are right, I only used it if I had to take apart an engine to optimize it better (which is what I mainly did during my time at EA). I also had to learn it alot just so I knew how to read it, often I had to "clean" code (such a bitch job).
