Greetings, fellow Internet dwellers. I have come from the distand lands of Poland. I am 15 years old, and in half a year it will be time for me to choose my high school. I didn't know who to ask, but since I've seen Day9's community resolve a lot of inspiration/lifestyle issues, I figured I'll try as well. You see, all my life, since I was like 3, I've loved video games. I've always tried to beat every single game that interested me, and I still do - the newest Thief unlocks tomorrow, and I plan to do a full ghost playthrough. I'm also, of course, a Starcraft maniac. I watch every major tournament as well as Day9's dailes and a lot of other eSports stuff. I also, albeit with less passion, watch LoL tournaments from time to time. But enough of this crap - let's get down to business. I need a job in "the industry". As in - I really need it. I see people like Day9, TotalBiscuit, Jesse Cox, etc. and I think - if they can, why not me? I do not see myself doing anything else, unless of course a life of unhappiness and sorrow can be counted as 'something else'. However, what I need is a college degree. And a job. I've thought a lot about this, and the most brilliant idea that comes to mind is either Computer Science or Software Engineering. What I want to know is if that will satisfy me, or will it just turn my love of games into a strictly work relationship? Can I, after obtaining one of the degrees I've mentioned, get a job that will actually be related to eSports or gaming? Someone, help! Thanks a lot in advance. It really means a lot to me.

DayKnight Time Hangout
By popular demand, we need a new thread for the Weekly Thursday Hangout. The old thread has gotten a bit unruly in size, and the hangout itself has transformed (yet again!). What DayKnights want, DayKnights get! ;)
Sooo I sort of jokingly promoted Kitty4cat for community moderator president, but then I got to thinking that it would be a great deal of interesting to have a mid level between mod and pleb. In live chat this has ...

Meaningful Game Presses (an insight day's point on the daily)
Sean was mentioning today that games are trying to remove as many 'unnecessary' button presses as possible in order to make the game more 'fun' and 'engaging' but that it oddly has a counterintuitive effect where it makes the game ...
