@Sweep: Don't forget about "Titan". 60 people from Titan, SC2 and D3 teams combined. Thats probably not that bad.

Almost every job has highs, but every job has its lows. I have a job that on paper sounds like a lot of fun, but like anything else there are days of toil, days of frustration, days where you have to do things you just don't feel like doing. Attitude towards your job and the people you work with are a huge part of what makes your job great.
So yea, working at whiskey in general could be a lot of fun, but there it's probably not the most amazing thing ever.
There are a lot of games where you can get them just for the playthrough, and then a couple clean up quests/youtube the funny ones. Skyrim, Oblivion, AC2 all fall in this category, but they just take a lot of time and might not be considered "easy" as a result.
I'm cautiously looking forward to Doom4. I think they need new game designers in house more than anything. The fact that the metroid prime designer got the boot off Doom4 saddens me.
id tech 5 had its moments where the art really shined in a way it couldn't in other engines, but the game world seems so static and seems like it might be a huge pain to develop for. I hope they kick a good game out soon, otherwise I don't know how much longer they'll be around for.
I guess it's too much to ask that they just destroy each other.
Yep, thats just what gaming needs two of the biggest, best and most community driven gaming companies going up in flames!
As someone who was slightly over weight for about 10 years and lost about 25 pounds last year I have some slightly bad news for your plan. 80-90% of your results are going to be food intake related both in terms of the types of food you eat and the quantity of them. Until integrating nutrition in to my attempt at weight loss I did a good intensity workout with 3 days of lifting and a day of cardio for a year and didn't budge on the scale. Arguably I probably exchange some fat for some new muscle, but I was still overweight. Sure enough I decided to get my shit together once and for all and signed up for an 8 week program at my gym. Three days of lifting 2 days of cardio and most importantly a nutrition plan. I dropped 22 lbs in those 8 weeks.
The good news is the nutrition wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be. Sometimes it felt like I was eating more food than before, just different food and still yummy. Cutting out evening snacking and candy was difficult a few times, but in general the overall feeling of lots of energy, the knowledge that I was eating healthy, and the noticeable changes made it easy to stick with. So not to discourage any for of physical exercise, I like your plan, but head to a fitness site or fitness thread on a forum get a plan and have you and your wife keep you honest (no cheating!). Cut out bread, pasta, anything sugar related. Eat lots of veggies and meat. You'll be glad you did.
