Beats me, considering how often i send customers to better stores for things they need. I guess it's because they pay their sales reps like shit and understaff the stores, as well as not properly train the employees in the fields they need to better help people with questions. But dear god if a sales rep in radioshack can't push a new cell phone on you...

I work part time as a radioshack sales rep, and part time as an audio video installer. Radioshack sucks, by the way, with prices far more expensive then most other store and a habit of selling repackaged materials as new. Also, most of the stores, in my district at least, are full of idiots. I get people coming from opposite ends of my neighborhood to visit my store simply because of me and my coworkers, as we have the best service out of our area. I actually offer my installation services over radioshacks' own offers for a better fee and better quality, seeing as my father and I do this professionally and are local allowing for easier return trips for problems or issues with other household electrical problems. I can't mention any names, but on the installation side of things, i've installed a wall mounted sony bravia for a star on the show "gossip girl", and am installing a whole audio/video network for a major actor who has starred in a number of movies over the past 30+ years. It pays okay, better than radioshack for sure, but it isn't steady enough to outright quit shitshack.

I also do stagehanding when i can, and that pays very well. Course, i work my ass off doing it, and always need at least a day after the set of days to recuperate, but i love it.

2) FUCK YEAH i'd make that thing do my bidding though.

1) Have to wait for a server to connect to get your day started

or

2) Have people 20 levels higher than you beat you up when you're trying to do your job.


#2 is trying to find a job in real life
I concur, and man it sucks.

Would you rather have....
A: a revive item (pheonix down, revive, cup of lifenoodles, etc)
OR
B: status effect remover (panacea, remedy, cure-all, etc)?

Yeah she's pretty bad.


I want to see this Hugo movie because Scorsese makes the best films
he makes the best films HE MAKES THE BEST FILMS
That's not true about kristen stewart. She just got stuck being the dumbest bimbo in a movie ever. Check out the one where she plays joan jett, The Runaways, she actually does a good job in it. Also, adventureland was pretty good too, she plays a bored 90's teen, which fits her well. The new snow white movies look pretty good, but the one she's in looks awesome. I hate her in twilight, but it's only cuz the movie sucks in general. Rob pattinson too, he's a great actor, but twilight sucks. Hell everyone in that movie has done something else for the most part that was good, but they all got stuck in this dopey shit movie about a girl who is retarded, and super vampires who don't abide by any logic of vampires in any story book, or werewolves for that matter.

Oh also, recently saw the medallion. Oh god, jackie chan movies were so terribad. I only sat through it for the outtakes, which are always worth it.

Let me help: cute kid.  In all seriousness, I'm jealous.  I'm ready for kids.  I should probably propose first, though...

let's all imagine a world with little parns running around
The trolling would never end.

Definitely eager to see these films. Berserk is awesome, loved reading the manga when i could find it.

The big problems were league chat and randomly not hearing one or two people. They fixed if a few times but i forget if it ever was fully fixed. I know i never had an issue with duos or alerts, and never made it to a raid. If a lot of you guys are playing i'll reinstall and try playing again.

I came, three times.

Nina never looked so good.

I also hate Activision and Kotick, which is why I didn't buy MW3; I rented it, so they got none of my money.
damn skippy.
2755  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: MGS, SH and ZOE HD collections announced on: November 16, 2011, 06:47:30 PM
MGS2 definitely hasn't aged that well. A lot of the control schemes and subtleties are really last gen.
Even snake eater feels a lot more sluggish than i remember. Considering i played the original metal gear online via mgs3 subsistence oh so many years ago, i definitely had a knack for its controls (ranked 450 overall at the time of server close). I may be a bit bias because i'm playing on 360 right now and the controller feels so different compared to a ps3 dualshock 2, but i still think it feels so clunky, even by metal gear standards ( how many buttons do you need to hold down to do a headshot, 50?).
2756  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Modern Warfare 3 trailer. on: November 15, 2011, 08:27:53 PM
I think it was just the fact that you made it sound like mw3 was the only reason you defriended someone. I defriend most people I don't talk to for over six months in all my lists, myself.

No, it just tipped the scales. I'm an asshole, not a moron. Of course, the mindless ones who play mw3 nonstop and play nothing else may be booted in the future, but that won't be til perhaps january or so.

Also, Eusis, you have a point, but skyrim has one thing working in its favor. I don't hate its publisher. I actually didn't like oblivion either which is funny. I liked mw1, before my hatred of one Robert Kotick arose. I'm all kinds of fucked up, i know.
2757  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Modern Warfare 3 trailer. on: November 15, 2011, 07:17:51 PM
Honestly, would you keep a person on your friend list who doesn't play anything besides one game that you refuse to play? Even better, you only got a request because you were just good in the previous game you played together? I understand that many people don't agree with my views on activision as a corporation, but dead weight is dead weight. I don't talk to you, don't play the only game you're going to be on for the next 4-6 months, and only accepted your request because i thought we'd play again sometime. If it were just the mw3 factor i wouldn't care as much, but what the hell, why request me and never play with me again? Played with one of the guys on my list for 5 hours on dead rising 2 and we had a great time. 2 days later he was on mw2, and that was 3 weeks straight. I don't regret using mw3 as the excuse to boot him, if anything it was long overdue.

Course, it's hard to hate when you have commercials like the one with sam worthington and jonah hill. It was pretty funny.


...Fuck cod:mw3
2758  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Modern Warfare 3 trailer. on: November 15, 2011, 01:24:05 PM
I've removed 3 people from my psn and xbl friend lists in total for playing mw3 so far. However they added me for that one time game we played and never bothered to play with me again. Mw3 was just icing on their failcakes.

Update:

It wasn't the harddrive. Sony's gonna charge me 150 to service it, so yeah kinda pissed. Gonna drag my heels on it til maybe after christmas and see about a ps vita first.

4 weeks after release and i finally nabbed it....that's probably the best part of this story.

I'll start with the good. The online handles fairly well. Very little lag, though i have a new and improved internet connection so that could be the culprit. I also want to state that the coop play is pretty well made. If i never played a ratchet title this game would have rocked. There lies the problem.

If you've played any of the previous 6 games, you will feel alienated and significantly hampered compared to even the first title in the series. No camera control, no leveling up weapons or health, no secondary secret items like the box buster or the magnetic wrench booster, NO FUCKING DASH BOOTS ARGHFUCKDAMNIT. The game has lost a huge number of its gameplay elements and i don't understand why. Even the story advancement lost a huge chunk of its awesomness. No side missions, no arena, no mini games. The whole game feels incomplete. I'm dissapointed greatly with this game. And considering how much of a fan i am, that was a difficult task to pull off. Good job insomniac.
