Nice. One of the things Simon introduced at Touchwork after starting a couple of months ago as the Development Manager was the concept of the Employee of the Month award, basically a recognition of one singled out office dweller (generally of the Dev team) who receives a nice little gift from the company, usually a R200 gift voucher from Kalahari.net.
The good news is I managed to walk away with the prize for September (the second time I’ve come away with it), completely irrelevant to us developers because of course we ALL pretty much work our hardest at the company, but perfect timing for me because as you can imagine, the whole house buying thing has pretty much tied up all my cash, meaning I have absolutely no idea when last I actually bought something cool for myself!
So it goes without saying that I instantly hopped on Kalahari.net and selected some absolute classics in the form of good old animated DVDs to keep me entertained, two from the West and two from the East.
First up is the brilliant Superman: Doomsday which I have been itching to lay my hands on in DVD format for absolute ages now, while the second from the West is Dead Space: Downfall, a game-related sampling from Studio Roman that providing such excellent work in Dante’s Inferno. As for the two from the East, I picked up two bargain bin classics in the form of the original Blood: The Last Vampire and Street Fighter Alpha 2: Generations.
Cheesy I know, but man I am I looking forward to those sweet, sweet sounds of the footsteps of the deliveryman coming up our stairs once more!
It’s been a while you know! :P
