IAMA New guy at Next Games - AMAA!

After my "big splash" on the forums last week, I thought it would be fun to do an AMA-style thread so we can all get to know each other better.

Because there is something of a professional relationship to maintain, however, I need to set out two ground rules:
-I cannot talk about game specifics that are normally off the table. No deep economy discussions, no promises about release dates or far future plans, no discussion of the show that extends beyond episodes that previously aired.
-I reserve the right to maintain my own privacy. I'm happy to discuss my career, what the office life is like, my personal likes and dislikes when it comes to media, etc., but if a question seems fishy or intended to pry, I'm not going to go there.

So, the weekend approaches! I'll try to answer a good chunk of the questions that are posted, likely starting tomorrow after office hours. I'll cap this off at 50 or so answers or Sunday afternoon local time, whichever happens first. If we're all still friends at the end, and we all agree that this was fun, I'll try to cajole some of the others in the office to do an AMA-style thread of their own in the future.

So, who's first?

    @DangerB They do make fun of the forum, I guarantee it. Even some members make fun of others on occasion. @darkfae and I created a game for the NG employees to play at the Christmas party called: Name That Forum Member. I don't even think they thanked us for that one.

    Not only should they thank you but I think they should make it a drinking game right after they spike the punch :)

    What is lunch like @Next?

    (Lunch, what's that? I just plough on, no time for pussies)
    (Does everyone get together? Do you bring your own sandwitches? Company canteen? Hot/cold meal?)
    (Does work talk continue, or do you leave work at the desk and talk sports or what not)

    @Shteevie...

    Oh my... Quit typin to us... We are ruthless...

    Good luck with the surgery for your family ( your cat, of course... )

    Please keep us posted... ( some of the ladies here, would like you to start a " Family Pet Picture Thread " over here, in our cesspool section... )
    I am easily confused by other people's, laziness and sloppiness and greed...

    Any guess who might " now " be on my list, ( in 2017 )
