Sad to say that even though this update is months since my last post, its only a single post inbetween (or I would have just edited the other one).

Curentlly on 50% sickleave becose my arms is starting to cause problems again, so I'm calling it quits before it gets anywhere near as bad as last time.

Plan is to stick to this for over xmas, and arange for finding annother job in the mean time, that can be adapted for my problems with arms.

I curentlly have the *grand* problem of having way to much time on my hands (pun was rather random), and my arms beeing to bad to actually use it for any kind of gaming... Rather annoying as this last year or two are the first time since 2000 I was really hooked to gaming.

And I would rather recomend the lot of you to keep your shotguns and katannas close at hand, as the only way you will ever exorsice me from these boards, will be by divine intervention! Muahahahahah!!!!!!*cough*eehhrr.... damn coffee.

You know, you could always try and outscore Killer Roach at DDR, providing he's still into that scene...

Still am, somewhat... just am losing overall "quick movement" agility as I start looking more and more like a football linebacker (a couple of my classmates are convinced I must've played football for WMU, even though I didn't even play in high school... besides, helmets don't fit me usually).

Most of my rhythm gaming anymore is through Rock Band, although I will still fire up the PS2 for DDR every now and again (especially when I have friends over and all of us have been drinking).

I'm finishing up university with a mathematics degree in 6 months... ski bum does sound pretty good after that.

Seriously though, the economics scene, IT scene and math academic scene all fail to interest me, so I really don't know what I'm doing with my life after I finish school.

Although it's pretty close to economics in some ways, you may want to look into some business fields. Having a combination of management skills and good math sense could prove itself useful.

Otherwise, there's always the classic standby for those who don't know what to do next, that being law school...

Hah, yeah, I've had law school in the back of my mind for a couple years.

I'm not in the mood for more school right away, but if I'm still feeling aimless in a couple years, I could very well give law school a shot.

Yeah... one of my professors is telling me to consider going to law school and get into antitrust or trade law... although that would probably result in me having more formal education that most people would have any idea of what to do with it.

It's an option in case I don't get into a school for doctoral work, though.

I noticed that despite my original post asking what DE was doing, people started going off and giving their own status updates, but hey, that's cool! I'll do that too.

I'm finally at uni now (after spending some time just doing not much), studying Chemical/Process Engineering - halfway through my second year (of four). I've got chronic laziness though, so my attendance is terrible, but thankfully it's all just maths, science and English which I'm great at, so my performance is excellent, considering.
I spend much of my free time (that isn't taken up by my other addictions) thinking up ideas for movies, novels and small games; jotting down and fleshing out those ideas - but I've yet to take that first actual step to writing or creating. But I hope that I eventually do.
Oh and, facebook. _
I also go to this thing called the gym, but not many of you would know about that. (Just kidding.)
And at almost 21 years of age, I'm embarrassingly starting to learn to swim... Oh well. Smile

In terms of gaming...
I play Heroes of Newerth regularly. My username is Shinaider.
Alien Swarm (it's free and it's fun) I played recently as well, but I pretty much played it all the way through with a friend and now we've stopped playing - hard to get my friends to hop on the bandwagon with me, but I guess I could cave and play with strangers. It's disappointingly short in length - I'm hoping for some updates, a new campaign or two; maybe I'll try out some of the fan-made content.
My steam username is L1woLf, if you wanna look me up.
Purchased the Natural Selection 2 special edition pre-order... but I can't get the Alpha to run (:<) I think I need to do a clean update of my graphics drivers, but I'm too busy (read: lazy) to do that right now.
Might buy SC2, or might not. Everyone seems to be playing SC2 these days, to the point where they have no time for anything else. It makes me very sad.
Looking forward to Worms Reloaded which is coming out soon on Steam; going to get a bunch of friends to roll with me, so we can split the $60 4-pack. Razz
So what are you all playing these days?

Last time I posted was...2007? Lot has happened.

Alot of you guys seem to be current or former college students. Last time I was here, I was in community college in my local area near Washington, DC. Did about 1 1/2 years there then transferred to a university out in Cincinnati. Did 1 1/2 years there studying Philosophy but left in the Spring without getting a degree. Was involved in alot of local politics there, worked in public access, (helped do a documentary on autistic artists) and I gained a new appreciation for the American midwest. Work-wise, just temped and worked at this pizza place.

In a 2 month period, (May-June '10) the greatest man ever (my father) passed away, I got arrested for the first time, (trumped up charges, I swear) I had a personal collapse at school, and I moved back to my mom's place. I recovered mentally and I'm back on a track with this burst of energy that's a welcome from the depressive state I was in near the end of my last semester there.

Right now, I'm working on a documentary for a DC-based non-profit and looking for part-time work. I'll be continuing my studies in Jan. back in Cincinnati but at the public university, and I'll probably be going only part-time but I'm not sure yet.

Far as gaming is concerned, I'm still a gamer at heart, but sometime around early '09 or late '08 I just found myself quitting, at least not being on the level I use to be. Nonetheless, I'll play whatever game is 'big' at a friend's house like CoD or Halo. Also, I'll play an old favorite of mine once every blue moon like Fallout 2/Syndicate/Dreamcast games or some Source mods if I have Internet. Any sequel to a pastime I'll least give a shot like Fallout 3 or Street Fighter IV. (the last game I bought) And make no mistake, I WILL check out the Syndicate sequel whenever it comes out.

Best wishes to everybody, stay safe.

Syndicate is awesome, though I couldn't get into Syndicate Wars at all. Sorry to hear about your father, I know how you feel.

Yeah I'm curious to see how the new sequel will work out. A Syndicate done in the vein of Freedom Fighters-type gameplay with more freedom and the Syndicate mission system would be nice.

I'd consider Syndicate Wars to be a worthy sequel, but it took out some of the joy of running your own evil corporation and it sort of had more of an action feel. Also, Syndicate's graphics imo aged better. Nonetheless, Syndicate Wars was still fun and it also had better multiplayer if anybody was willing to use it.

I agree with the graphics statement. The art style in Syndicate looked really cool, almost artsy. The music was simple but totally awesome and more engulfing than standard techno in the second game.
