    Hi all,

    I am a level and systems designer by trade, currently working in the video games industry and looking to move over to IT at some point soon (getting a bit old for games dev...).

    I am hoping to find some help and advice on the best (and cheapest) way to cross over between the two trades and these forums seem to be a good place to get some help on how to do this.

    I'll not post too much here since this is just a hello, but I hope to get to know folks here a bit better over the coming months. Any advice on which forums are best to start posting up further questions would be appreciated.

    Cheers all,

    /James

    Damn straight, but that's not such a catchy title :)

    The day I stop playing video games is the day my missus accidentally formats my HDD again ("So format isn't the same as defrag?")

    Trouble is, when you work in games dev there is so little time to actually play games, which is what got me into dev in the first place... Dumb ain't it.

    My wife doesn't understand how I can work on computers all day and then come home and... actually WANT to get on the computer!

    Addiction's a beast. :eek:
