Allright, I'll try to also cover that up!

Oh, I assumed this would be an anjustable A.I., adapting perfectly to our needs? Maybe just a few tweaks necessary to receive a perfect fitting solution?

Nice post Jeff, like always hehe. This makes me really glad that im not in a gaming industry grin.
Still one thing applies everywhere, there is a ton of people looking for job and you need some edge. For example if I didn't worked throughout my studies I wouldn't probably get a job right after.

Yeah, same here: I'm not someone who thrives in high-pressure environments. I'm good at what I do and put in lots of effort, but having everything turned up to 11 all the time isn't for me.

There's a school in France ( well at least two I think ) that teach videogame design, or something. Supinfogames in northern France and ... And something else, I'll have to ask a colleague of mine who was in the second.

Supinfogames was created some time ago, when I was myself in the "original" school of the group. I think it somehow evolved in something viable nowdays. I'm not sure. I don't think drawing was a prerequisite though : I did an artsy school myself and I don't know to draw for sh!t.

Bottom line : don't dismiss yourself unless you tried really hard. And even then, still don't dismiss yourself. ( hint : I do. I hate wasting time. =) )

Likewise here. When I was at university I already worked in my field of study at one research laboratory... wuuuf I was at school or at work and on free days I mostly helped around house (read farm which was quite far away). I felt quite burned out my last year. ( lol I was so burned I postponed my thesis to this year grin ) ... now I prefer my new quite workplace, lol who am I kidding im still stressing here.

Well, I have a degree in animation but never really did anything with it. Sure a few freelance jobs here and there but never anything stable. I feel like I'm rusty now, the technology and techniques in animation are constantly evolving. And with that, you need to keep up and study.

I finally remembered to bring tea to work! Glorious rooibos tea.

Random thought, I'm on a MMORPG kick lately. Last night I caught myself looking at FFXIV ARR wondering if I should jump in.

Last MMO I played was SWTOR. I only played that cause it was Star Wars (huge fanboy), not really interested in them otherwise. Tried Archage and wasn't fussed.

MMOs: other people, probably all wanting to shout at me. eek. SWTOR wasn't so bad because everyone studiously ignored each other, but I still felt a bit too conspicuous.

Funny : I did finally remembered to bring my tea too. name's " I have a Dream " from Mariage freres ( doh ), black tea - sparkling citrus notes.
With my 500ml vacuum can, it's purrfect. Only drawback is that I have to actually leave the can open or it stays so hot it's undrinkable laugh

Obivously, as a MMO, it is pretty bad, because it was way too SP oriented. With the companions, we could even dual-man most of the dungeons ( we did ! ). However I liked the classes and the stories seemed nice. Planets had a bad bad BAD design though. I quit in Nar Shadaa because the "Vertical City" never felt so horizontal.
Overall a badly designed MMO which was stuck between his Kotor legacy and a real MMO. We even get to meet, fight and kill(!) Revan along with HK47.

That's why GW2 has such a special place in my heart. The elitist jerks are limited to the dungeon speed runs.

Don't really have time now to play GW2 but I will definitely find some time for HoT (heart of thorns). I can dig up my nick later if anyone feels like killing mordremoth minions together grin

Drawing is not the only thing that you can do though :P

I know a lot of people who have any degree of study in any related job who are now doing something completely different because they didn't had any job when they went out of school.
