I'm still working at Microsoft (hah can you guys remember back when I was a struggling college student.. with now-ex-wife created financial problems? god she was a money black hole).  Been having some adventures since kicking cancers ass (https://imgur.com/a/P8sm2 https://www.flickr.com/photos/denidil), etc.

If your wife was a black hole for money, I guess you since got re-married to Star Citizen?  ;7

PS - Congrats on kicking cancer's ass

I got out of testing, and I'm a Game Designer now.  I credit this place as where it all started.

In a lot of the games industry, that means getting laid off every few years and having to move a lot.  A great deal of uncertainty.

That's why it's really great to work at Epic!  I don't have to deal with any of that! While my coworkers are busy with Fortnite, I've been working on Spyjinx, which has been announced and then we haven't said much.  It's good work, I'm mostly doing visual scripting and putting together levels, even though I started out here with art.  Going from finding bugs to making and fixing bugs has been a trip.

For home life, I got married last year, which was great.  We'd been living together for a while now.  Still have the 2 cats, who I should post in the pets thread.  No kids so I can still play lots of video games.

She leaches more of me in a month than i've put into star citizen, and i've put a lot into star citizen.   and she's still leaching me less on alimony than she pissed away when we had a joint account.

Never get a joint account

PS - thanks

Yep, life is good.  Glad to hear Microsoft is keeping Gears alive, I'm looking forward to it.

Hey Kazan. Long time no see.
Karajorma's Freespace FAQ. It's almost like asking me yourself.

What a blast from the past.  Haven't seen that name (Kazan) in over 10 years!
Glad you're doing well :)
What do you do at Microsoft?
