That's quite a misrepresentation of the situation :D

Nice attic.

So you told your team leader you would rather work on a different project with a different leader.
Yeah. You hurt his feelings.

Whelp, quit my job today. (to be more precise, I quit earlier, today was the last day of my notice) Starting new one on Monday.

I only worked there for two short years and while I learned a lot and liked most of the people there, I was getting increasingly frustrated by a few things which I feel I need to write down to maybe reflect on them in the future:

- Basically all of the software development we were asked to do was tightly controlled by business people without long term vision

- Most developers have been there for over 5 years and were all promoted to team leads, technical leads etc even if they were not necessarily the most qualified people to be in those positions

- One team, working on technical architecture instead of web applications, seemed hugely appealing to me - I mentioned it to my teamlead but he himself wanted to be part of that team as well.. He quickly gave me a negative review which I can't help but feel was for a large part office politics. Especially cause when I handed in my resignation I was told they were always very happy with my work. While I don't think I'd do the same if I were in his position I don't take it personally. But it meant I was going to be stuck in a role that was slowly but surely killing my passion for software development.

So now, I'm going to a large (5th largest in the world, I think) consultancy company where in theory they should have multiple clients all over Belgium, as well as other countries. The best case scenario is that I get put on clients near where I live (I asked for it, and they'll definitely try to do that for me, but they couldn't contractually promise it). At the very least, I hope to get more projects, clients and technology stacks under my belt... And maybe I might even end up in a company that fits me like a glove. Maybe. Not holding my breath though. :)

I've picked up No Man's Sky. Not sure what it was like at launch, but it's been enjoyable. Some bugs, but it works in multiplayer + there's a base building component to it so it's alright

Zodiac is my favourite and recreates the style of the original game really well and is a lot of fun (has no voice acting though, if that's a sticking point)

Nihilum is also pretty good, and that does have full voice acting (including some by myself in the training/prologue parts)

Was about to uninstall the first Deux Ex but then I thought if there might be any good single-player mods for this, you know, mods featuring a new story and new levels. So, any recommendations? Preferably nothing that changes the gameplay mechanics too much.

It might be the enemies or the art style, I'm not sure.

Oh yeah, the Arkane artist for the game (and Dishonored) seems to have an affinity for ugly, grotesque people.

but have I become better as a player if later on I can kill the same enemies with ease for no other reason but by having boosted my character's stats? It's an illusion of skill, like in the old Final Fantasy games.
This is part of my problem with a lot of action games these days, the gameplay itself doesn't evolve or change at all you just get 'better' through being more powerful in-game. It's why I've loved the Dark Souls series so much; you can level up and beat everything that way....but if you're good enough you can beat the game naked with your fists.

Prey should be up my alley anyways but something about it just puts me off. It might be the enemies or the art style, I'm not sure.

Yeah man, for sure.

Weird to think that until December last year that place looked like this:

To Catch A Thief is a very lame movie by Hitchcock's standards. No suspense, I don't buy the chemistry between Grant and Kelly, boring, etc. The only reason to see this movie (and that's still a damn good reason) is the opportunity to see the most beautiful woman ever, Grace Kelly, in various dresses.

Epic. So that'll become the rape dungeon?
