My store got burglarized last night. Meanwhile, they still want us to spend all week open until 11pm but won't give us enough payroll to have more than one person working past 8pm.

That was pretty amazing.

Though it does kind of highlight how odd it is with the really simple modern look of the cars and then the ultra-futuristic look of everything else, except maybe some of the buildings.

Thank God this game is so short. It may be a lot less frustrating than Sora's story because there's no deck building involved, but they more than make up for it with the 'no reliable healing' thing. Just finished the 7th area, and am really eager to keep going and just get this out of the way.


Working on some item and equipment plans while catching up on Strong/Tough enemies and quests before I start Chapter 6. I'm also really behind on Lily ranks because I've been pretty lazy and just keeping the same team formation. Still getting new characters too. Really my only major complaint right now is the party size. For a game with a three-member battle system, there are just way too many characters to keep track of. Though the cast size does have me looking forward to Hyperdevotion Noire.

I've recently thought of another thing to add to my Zelda 2015 Wish List:

I want Zelda to do something princess-y. I mean, we've seen her get captured, play a harp, and fight, but this time I'd like her to do something different, like... I dunno... rule a kingdom?

I bought a Zelda Amiibo at work today, which is bittersweet because now I have no right to complain about how stupid Amiibos are.

Protip: If you're at like PF Changs and you get a huge chunk of bok choy, check under the goddamn stems for caterpillars.

God my soul is barfing.

I hope you burned down the establishment as a precautionary measure.

That's all well and good, but telling someone that says they're in love "No! You're Wrong!" is just needlessly stomping on their joy.

I'm jaded as fuck when it comes to relationships and think they're all a waste of time and effort, but I'm still optimistic enough to believe that love works in mysterious ways and just because relationships have a certain logical progression for most people doesn't mean it's always going to work that way for everyone.

You can't let relationships stress you out or you end up a social shut-in like me. Just do as you will and if you fuck things up, well at least it was fun while it lasted.

Slow down there Cyrano, You're not in love, not after 4 dates.  (and even if by some horrible mishap you are, don't you dare breathe a word of it to anyone who might know that girl).

That kind of thinking is going to scare her off

If you're still in high school, sure. Afterward people don't get so caught up in the "rules" of romance, and if they do they're not worth anyone's time.

Honestly, you're allowed to be in love with someone the moment you lay eyes on them if they really illicit that kind of reaction. People think love is this finite resource that needs to be buried deep until you find "The One," when the truth of the matter is life can always use more love.

In all my frustration, I left my iPad at work and there are still three more Alliance Duels in Valkyrie Crusade tonight and tomorrow morning. So that's pretty much a bust this month at this point. I really could not tell you why I am still playing that game. Ever since the last update, the power creep has gotten out of control and the disparity between what paying players can do and non-paying players can do is absurd.

It sucks, because it used to be such a great CCG, so now I'm lvl 110 and quitting just seems like a lot of wasted effort. Not to mention I inherited our alliance from our previous leader and have spent the last two months rebuilding it from the wreck it had become.

Really the only thing that makes Gamestop miserable is having at most two people and then expecting them to run the store like a fully staffed department store, with around a hundred weekly price changes, nothing in the store stays the same for more than three weeks (I think the company is run by a board with severe ADD and needs things to constantly change), and constantly shuffle inventory around to different stores like we're playing Pre-Owned Hot Potato.

It's only on top of that that makes things like tonight so frustrating. Argued with a lady until 15 minutes after close that we couldn't take her phone in for trade if we couldn't unlock it. So when we ended up being a large amount over I didn't even bother re-counting anything because we're also told we shouldn't be going over hours so much.

So kind of worried I may not have a job tomorrow. Which I wouldn't really care about, I don't have a lot left in me to deal with it anyway. It would be okay if I had something to look forward to after leaving the place, but all I do is play stupid games and dread the next day I have to come in.

But at least I have the posts here to read and serve as a place to rant into the crowd like this. I don't mean to be so sappy, but I really do not know how I'd survive without RPGfan.

Gamestop... so pretty much a busier day than Black Friday for us.

And the amount of customers isn't the worst part. We're in a fairly wealthy neighborhood so naturally it's full of kids that get $700 worth of gift cards and get all pissy because the $400 console their parents bought them wasn't exactly the one they wanted.

I'm the keyholder at our store that gets to open the day after Christmas.

Just kill me now and get it over with.

English Trailer came out today:

I... errr.... yeah.

Anytime the sub or dub argument comes up, I always prefer dubs, even mediocre dubs are better than experiencing a movie/game through subtitles. So I'm not biased towards original language tracks, and almost never care when a company makes a big deal about their Western release having dual audio, but this time... I don't know why I just really hate the English cast, even the little bit we hear from them in this trailer. Maybe because you can already tell each charracter is a living, breathing JRPG trope. It almost sounds like they're all voiced by the same VA talking in different pitches and different levels of gruffness.

I thought Elf was pretty good, not the definitive Christmas movie that a lot of people think it is, but still an entertaining movie. Only thing I didn't like about it was the scene that did an especially good job at highlighting how freakin' creepy "Baby It's Cold Outside" really is.

That doesn't surprise me as there are plenty of songs that seem a bit easier on Hard than on Normal, Luka Night Fever being the most extreme example I've come across.
