As I prepare to take my license exam, I am doing freelance translation/interpretation. Unfortunately being self employed in this manner leads to shitty benefits so I sent a resume to Lion Bridge.

My girlfriend's looking to do some Chinese translation.  She got an internship at the Cleveland Clinic, which is pretty big, but not sure if that'll result in a job immediately following her undergrad graduation.  Tips?

Graduate assistant slave.  I spend much of my time reading pdfs, taking inadequate notes, or looking for pdfs.  Or copying books for class readings.  GLORIOUS, I KNOW, YOU ARE ALL ENVIOUS.  En route to school psychologist.

For those unaware (I'm unsure if this was posted elsewhere), there is an OnLive deal going on.  The first game you purchase there is $1.  The catalogue sucks, and the site/application are difficult to navigate, but $1 is $1.  Highlights include the Batman games, Deus Ex, Borderlands, King's Bounty: Armored Princess, and some others I can't remember right now, but that's just about it, heh.  Limited time, of course.

Poor Tooker takes a lot of our less-than-adequate games for review.  You can see that in that he thinks mid 60s is middle of the road.

Also, I like the new grading scale.

For those interested in research-based editorials, I've actually been doing some light research in my off time regarding some editorial topics I'd like to write about.  Those will go up, just a matter of when.

Also, thanks to everyone who's had something to share about this topic.  Positive or negative, I love seeing the feedback.  Glad you've enjoyed it!

Good or bad, I really appreciate everyone's input.  I'm glad we were able to produce such debate and conversation.  Heartheart RPG culture.  These have been a treat to read.

Har, too funny.  I just linked to this yesterday on our staff forum.  Some real gems in here!  Thanks for the heads up, by the by.

I'm a PhD student.  And yes, I consider that work seeing how I get paid for it.

What are you PhD'ing in?

Ja, I tend to "enjoy" the games I buy, and by that I mean I don't rush or skip stuff.  I'm pretty obsessive-compulsive, as well, so every treasure chest must be found, and most sidequests should be satisfied before I even attempt the final dungeon.  I've never found such stats on other sites helpful at all for this reason.

Plus, most of RPGFan's reviews allude to the length of the game in the text itself.  Good ideas, though, keep 'em comin'!

Keep the input comin', guys.  This is all good stuff.  :)

Found this on a blog about teaching English as a foreign language.  Supposedly, this was made back in 60s or 70s by an Italian musician who wanted to simulate what English sounds like to a foreigner.  I'd ignore the subtitles, but I'll be damned if this ain't catchy.

I'm a huge fan of instrumental covers on YouTube (acoustic and piano, mostly), but it's hard to find someone who consistently updates with quality work.  Here's one of my favorites:


He's been doing this for a while now, and he definitely deserves more subscriptions.  He tends to add very small tweaks to anime and RPG stuff (mostly FF and DQ).  If you're into the same kinda thing, check 'im out.  Heavenly Flight is probably one of his best works:

This just makes me sad for probably every conceivable reason.  Feels similar to those "breakdown" videos where a gamer goes nuts after not being able to pass Through the Fire and Flames.
