21st-Aug-2012 04:08 am - Serious, dead of night thoughts

What would happen if I actually changed jobs, changed career right now? Would it be viable? Would I still be able to support my family? Would I truly be any happier?

I don't know. And yet the thoughts won't leave my head. I've known for a while now that the latest iteration of my IT job is more difficult than I imagined. Well, that's not entirely true, I can do the work. But the expectations attached to the job are always expanding in ways I'm not sure I can keep up with.

Plus, I'm just plain unhappy. Perhaps it's my lazy streak that wants a less challenging job, but I'm tired of beating myself up over it. I'm not required to hold onto this job to prove something. I think I've already proven something to myself by hanging on about 2 years longer than I thought I would! Just because I can do something doesn't mean I have to do it.

Yeah, heavy thoughts tonight. Need time to think some more!

Seriously, grave isn't for me anymore. I find myself wanting a life in the daylight, and I hope after next week I can have one! Let someone else take this shift for a few weeks.

Ok, working nights again this week. I sometimes feel like a Whitney kid with how I go on about "bouncing shifts". After all, lots of people have crazy schedules and manage just fine. On the other hand... Waaaah!! Pout, stomp, tantrum!

Ok, now I feel better! Oh, loving my new "Ghost White Ale" t-shirt. I love how few people are getting the reference to Jon Snow's Direwolf. Then again, that proves the wolves are almost non-entities in the show, which I find tragic. I'll have to post my Instagram link to the shirt later... Once I figure out how to do it on a mobile device, lol!

Bigpoint has unveiled a short teaser for their forthcoming GAME OF THRONES mmorpg. I thought the gamers out there might enjoy a look

If the scenery and music seems familiar, that's because this game is being produced under a license from, and with the cooperation of, HBO and is based on the TV show, whereas the previous Cyanide videogames were based on the books.

Moreover, I'm informed that BigPoint will be previewing the game this weekend at the San Diego Comicon. To have a look, visit the Dark Horse booth. I know I will... I want to see what they're doing just as much as you do!!

Here's the BigPoint press release:

July 2, 2012 – San Francisco – Bigpoint – a global leader in online video games – today revealed the official name of its upcoming free-to-play (F2P) fantasy massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG) as Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms. Bigpoint has partnered with HBO® to develop the game inspired by the network’s critically acclaimed television show, Game of Thrones®, adapted from the bestselling fantasy book series, A Song of Ice and Fire, written by George R.R. Martin. Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms will be set within the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, giving players the chance to experience epic moments from the television series. At the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con, July 12-15, Bigpoint will release a new exclusive video trailer for Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms.

“Selecting a game’s title can be quite an arduous process, especially in the free-to-play space where games must be easily discoverable by players around the world,” said Max Pfaff, Producer, Bigpoint. “By selecting Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms we’re confident that we’ve chosen an identifiable name that will resonate with the global community of diehard Thrones fans.”

In context of the lore, the Seven Kingdoms were originally independent countries which rose up over thousands of years until the Targaryens ruled over them as one nation of Westeros. Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms begins after the deaths of King Robert Baratheon and Ned Stark. The Starks of the north declare war on the south and Baratheon’s two brothers both make claims to the throne. Players are challenged to form alliances through Player vs. Player (PvP), Siege combat and politics to control Westeros.

Fans attending San Diego Comic-Con (July 12-15) will also have the opportunity to get a first look at the exclusive new Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms trailer by Bigpoint which can be viewed at booth 2615 (Dark Horse). The teaser captures the essence of gameplay and visual fidelity that players will get to experience when the game is launched.

Bigpoint is collaborating with Norwegian development studio, Artplant, on the development of the forthcoming Unity-based project. Bigpoint and Artplant have previously partnered on the production of Battlestar Galactica Online, a breakthrough F2P space combat MMO that recently celebrated its first birthday and 10 million registered pilot milestone.

Game of Thrones Seven Kingdoms beta testing is slated to begin later this year. Fans are encouraged to visit: for more information and to follow the latest Twitter updates @GOTMMO.

If there's one thing I hate, it's being made to feel inadequate. I do that by myself already, I don't need anyone else doing it for me. But here I am, pacing the office area and feeling nervous because I had a slow shift. My supervisor got after me because, apparently, the manager says that I always say my nights are easy or something. The implication being that I slack off all night. I don't! I try to stay busy, but some nights there's nothing I need to do. When I say there's no issues, I mean "nothing is broken"!

Ugh, typing this on my phone. Too hard, will vent more later.
