And now a drastic turn to the left.

or maybe the right?  I don't know. 

So last week I found out that my job is being outsourced to India and the only thing I could think was how am I going to pay for my game subscriptions... oh yeah and eat.  Maybe it's a good thing, maybe I need some of that giant glowy thing out there...

Anyway recently, I started playing Age of Conan and I really like it.  I'm playing a Herald of Xolti.  It has come to be my favorite class of any fantasy game I've played.   It suits me the best I suppose is why.  Though I find myself yelling a the screen a lot.  It really is a thinker class.  You have to think and plan you attacks.  I think that is what I like the best about Conan.   

So going on about Conan wasn't really my intention in writing this... it was more to focus on what do I do now.   I'd really love to work in the game industry but there doesn't seem to be two many companies here where I live.  And I don't really have the luxury of relocating.   So I am at a cross roads with no clue what to do next with my life.  

I'm gonna go cut some heads off in Hyboria...

Coming from the MMO industry myself, it's extremely hard to get into. And even easier to get out of, meaning that your job is always ready to be cut. In the several years I worked in the industry I never once felt like I had job security, and it wasn't for my lack of skills, that's just how the industry is. I could tell you what degrees or what skills you need to have to break into the industry, but I knew people that didn't even have a high school diploma helping to create games.
