How's everybody doing this evening, since I've joined a few days ago thought I'd try and get to know some of the members. :)

I am starting to get into the idea of photography, I recently purchased a bridge camera and am learning to tinker with it! other than that, I just tinker with the car and repairs, but beyond that, the family takes just about every free second :p

Let's see now...

My main hobbies are horse riding and cycling. (Gonna try horseback archery next year!) Anything outdoors-y. I also do a spot of wildlife rescue. I keep tropical fish and they keep eating my bank balance, the little idiots!!

Music is a BIG thing for me, if it's 'left of centre' and loud, I like it. I work a lot in The Industry, so I'm lucky that my job is also my hobby!!

:)

Is doing up my flat a hobby? It certainly eats up a whole heap of my time!!

:D

My main hobby is sitting here :D looking at this forum and trying to be of some use to someone :p

Bit of photography, though, not so much these days as I don't have the time due to my other "hobby" - games programming (which is also my job).

Incontro

My hobbies are electronics, programming, reading, travelling, and obviously into cars.

 

I haven't had a chance to do any mods or tinker around with programming/electronics for quite some time though, too much work as of lately (and little funds too)!  :angry:

Sounds cool, so you work for a games software company then? Or do you work on your own? What platforms and languages?

jamesm182

For me it's cars and spending time with the wife, friends and family. Used to do quite a lot of drumming too although not so much these days. When I was younger I was also a competitive swimmer so that took up a lot of my time back then.

 

I'm also a bit of a geek at heart. I love technology. Smart phones, tablets, home cinema etc.

 

I have spent the last few days messing around with NFC tags!  :P

Helping out at the Charity, helping out at an animal rescue centre, playing with my Serval, going on stupidly long hikes, driving like a loon when possible, and learning about all sorts of sciencey things and animals :P

 

Hoping to walk about 500 miles over summer, so about 50 - 60 a week :P

Stoney871

Currently sorting out components for a self built gaming PC, working/walking/training my two Police dogs and my pet collie too,  hiking, reading, modding and driving the car, big sci-fi/action film buff, helping run this club, cooking, DIY, instructor with a Cadet unit, DofE Trainer, First Aid Instructor and of course loads of hours at work in between ;)

I want a collie, but my cat disagrees with the idea of dogs :c

Not sure, Serval's are statistically the best hunter's of all mammals I believe :P

She just goes into a strop and hides away at the top of the shelf when there's a dog in the house for a visit >_>

 

Someone tried braking in the house before Christmas and she saved the day, so I have to keep her happy for that :P

ive a friend with cat & a labrador & the cat bullies the dog she even kicks him out of his own bed lol ...how did your cat scare of the thief?
b1g_dav3

They broke in the front door, and whenever she hears the door she runs to the porch door (which is also locked as we've had people try to break in before) and sits on the shelf that is level with the glass at the side of the porch, and she's over twice the size of a large house cat, and she jumped at the glass and the pair of plonks couldn't get away quick enough, one of which fell flat on their face over the step out of the doorway. 

 

Got back and she seemed very proud of herself, all caught on camera and sent to the police :P shame there wasn't any audio, that'd have been priceless to hear.

 

Cats usually are the boss, they have claws :P

My Collie was brought up with cats but hates them with a passion now.
My Mali loves cats, when she had a litter a couple of years ago a cat got in the whelping box and curled up with the pups.
She let it stay and even groomed it.
The Springer chases them out of the garden and then sits there looking chuffed with himself.

Ooo!! Who for? I do on heck of a lot of games industry stuff, so if you're UK-based, I may have trundled past you at some point...

For myself, now.  I used to work at Gremlin Interactive (Sheffield) in QA, then motion capture.  I was one of the first casualties of the Infogrames takeover.

 

I take it you're at Lionhead?  I saw a sign to Lionhead Studios in one of your pics in another thread. ;)

Pretty intresting stuff :)

I enjoy sight seeing and taking snap shots, while I'm working away instead of heading stright home, I'd stay and explore the area and the pleasure of driving. :)

of course I enjoy working on cars if it its maintence, modifications, spraying and restoring. :) I did kickboxing for four years, stopped in 2011 still enjoued it a lot, recived my black belt that same year.

Oh cool! Well, if you're ever in the Guildford area, watch out for a small, black fiesta van hurtling by...

:D

Are you still in games or another tech industry?

I was at EA for three years on contract, but am now freelancing for pretty much every games company in the area via a client of mine. So Lionhead is a company that I do work for every now and again. Same with EA.

Prior to that, I was in the TV and music industries - which I still dabble in from time to time... I'm a video editor/sound engineer, so I get about!

:)
BigD

Yeah, I still write games, but I'm the boss now. :)

 

Three of mine:

 

Magicville: Art of Magic (2010, PC/Mac)

Crime Solitaire (2011 PC/Mac/iOS)

Dr Mal: Practice of Horror (2012 PC/Mac)

 

I didn't get anything released in 2013 - I was working on a project with this guy in San Antonio.  He went way over timescale, then stopped replying to emails.  It should have been done last February.  He only started replying again when I got a US lawyer involved back in August, and he promised the job would be done "by the end of 2013".  It still isn't, and I'm thousands out of pocket.  It'll cost me even more money to get it back, and that's if I win, which I might not.

 

So I'm plodding along now on a little project of my own, and hoping I can get it finished before the money runs out (which unfortunately, isn't long).  If this doesn't get the cash flowing soon, it's curtains.

Cool!! I'll go check 'em out!

And yes, being your own boss is the best plan of action: no corporate politics cowpoo to deal with. Urgh...

Good luck (and I genuinely mean that!!) on all your future (and current!) projects, it's a mad-arsed industry, but we love it!!

:D
