Sometimes I feel disconnected from the world. Like I want to tell my co-workers about how one of my players completely murdered a black dragon in my Saturday game, or the cool new anime I found last night about a game developer that got sucked into his MMO, but they would at best give me polite smiles. It doesn't help that I'm pushing 50.
@daHob man I didn't talk to my co-workers about my interests and hobbies, I mean, they're not friends? That's what you do with friends. Co-workers are for work chat, current events and the occasional philosophical digression that makes them slowly edge away.
@daHob no advice on that, but did you catch lay season's Knights & Magic, or as I was calling it Mecha Otaku Saves Fantasy Land. The setup is essentially game developer dies and is reincarnated in a fantasy world that has magic powered giant robots which he sets about turning on its head through a combination of treating the magic as programming and an utter enthusiasm/obsession with mecha. The season apparently condensed the first few light novels it was based on.
