I have left Holland for Canada. Yesterday, I arrived in Vancouver where I will be working with Slantsix games as a developer. I just arrived at the office for the first time (I had my interview via webcam) and met the people here. They are a very friendly bunch. The office atmosphere is nice, and it really feels like a game studio, although there are no segways parked here :-) This morning I bought a bicycle to get around town. Some bad news about my PS/3 console: it died. It survived the shipping, as I had played on it here in Canada yesterday evening. Today, it will not boot up. I hope I can get it fixed. About my new employer: they recently announced SOCOM: Confrontation. I need to hunt for permanent accomodations now (currently I'm on 1600 Beach Ave), and get myself a social security number. The trip from Holland started with engine trouble, and me almost missing the connecting flight from London to Vancouver, but the second leg went very well. The plane landed 30 mins ahead of schedule. The Canadian immigration officer was much better than the Berlin staff. I had my workpermit quickly. So far, jet-lag is mild.
