Erm... GTFO of there?
Eventually, the mold is going to kill you all.

It took me 3 years to get a job, I'm not leaving until I at least get get cashier experience...which I was supposed to get 6 months ago, I'm really gonna have to get on their ass about that.

Don't mean to pry, but why did it take you 3 years to get a job?  Is it because of something obvious and unfortunate (and American) like you're a minority/physically handicapped?  Are you a felon? Long term illness?

Because I live in an area where everyone was looking for jobs at once and there are very few jobs here that don't involve working for the state in some capacity, unless you know someone, and all my friends left this area because they knew how terrible this place is...it doesn't even have a decent bus route anymore, so I need a ride a lot of the time.

I mean I even had a job councelour, yet I was lucky if I got an interview more than once a season. It got to the point where I was this close to quitting the search before...I guess other people gave up and there were actually some jobs I could apply for. At least I've been competant at this so hopefully if I do need to look somewhere else, it won't be as hard.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope was the only Star Ocean I really liked. It did a lot of little things (as well as some big things) that went a long way in improving almost all the problems I had with the series, especially the pacing. That said, Valkyrie Profile 2 gets my vote for best Tri-Aces game, as well as the 3rd most improved sequel I've ever played in any series (horray for the covetted bronze medal =P). The story was structured better, the writing felt more polished and focused on an actually interesting protagonist I could connect with, and the gameplay was a complete 180 from the last game (which is good, because VP1's gameplay was everything I hated in a game). Even the platforming sequences were...barable. Platforming still does not belong in an RPG, though (unless it's just making a platformer with RPG elements, so the whole game is designed around the platforming elements, but then I'm just gonna call it a platformer and say fuck it to the RPG part).

I actually really didn't like Kingdom Hearts 3D (though I'll admit I quit early on, so take that for what you will), and in fact, I've always heard very split opinions on it. Some thought it was great. Some thought it was the worst KH since Chain of Memories (then again, I actually thought Chain of Memories was okay until I got the Axel[?] fight about halfway through...). I'm surprised I haven't noticed more of the latter on this site since I've been here.

I have a bad habit of forgetting extremely important words when I write stuff...

Anyways, yesterday was great outside...and I was inside most of the time at work. But I had to work outside all last week when it was snowy, windy, and below zero out there. I swear, stores are busier when the weather's terrible than when it's actually nice out...

Also, the grocery store I work at is in a brand new building (only two or three years old) and the roof in the entranceway leaks something fierce, yet you know what upper management's answer is? Buckets. Lots of buckets. We tell them it's leaking more, they give us more buckets. Yet we never have enough or the buckets overflow, because there's aleays water on the floor. We've been having this problem since October, so they can't even blame the weather. I mean, these are the same cheapskates who hired the sucky contractor that half-ass their work and lead to this mess, but still, it's getting to the point where customers are afraid they might slip or the ceiling might collapse on them. The answer? Squeegy - get a big-ass squeegy and make the cart guys periodically push the water back outside (thus wasting time that could be spent getting carts so people can actually shop, time that is very necessary since there's only 3 corrals in the whole big-ass parking lot very close together, corporate won't let us have more than a minimum amount of carts at the store, and half the carts are fucking useless and can't even be put with the other half because they're 10 years old. I swear, I work for fucking geniuses...). It's like we're trying to bail a sinking ship...

...I don't like complaining about work, but I had to get that off my chest because it really is annoying and potential dangerous...

I'm 6 episodes into Aldnoah.Zero. Very exciting stuff so far. I'll try to post more tomorrow. #placeholder

I should note I'm basically grinding for Persona skills, which takes an absurd amount of time. I'm more or less one-shotting everything when I have the right skills, but every time I get a new Persona, it's more or less useless until I rank it up...
68  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: February 22, 2015, 08:57:37 PM
Still mostly playing Persona. The clock says I played 172 hours, and while that's a glich, it certainly feels like it. I've been grinding a lot, and the dungeons are long and mostly uninteresting (like, they're just long, windy hallways with nothing in them...). That said, I've been enjoying it. I don't mind a game that makes me want to grind.

I hate comment sections under reviews...

Comment sections under any sort of article is up there on my list of "things the internet really needs to get rid of".

The douche part of me wants to be happy the creator of some of my least favorite games is more or less getting the death nail...but I can't. They made some good stuff, too, and always seemed to take criticism to heart and improve with every other sequel. This is actually very depressing. I hope their top directors and game designers get together and either form another company or at least go to a decent studio where they can continue to make interesting games...

Not just the subject matter but that has to be one of the worst written books I've ever tried to read that wasn't self published.

....:-\ Why do people do this?

Y'all know it's bad beforehand. It was written to be garbage. It was marketed specially as garbage. It will never be anything other than garbage.

Yet they still ignore the other legitimate writers, who're very much fighting to stay sane all the while, out there and burn their finite time (and possibly money) on something they know will make them miserable.

Not sure people know exactly how much mental damage this causes struggling novelists every time they have to see yet another "Oh I just read the WORST book ever...on purpose. Lawls."

(Not picking on you specifically Au, you're hardly the only one who does this.)

To be fair, I have the same reaction when people tell me they played Goat Simulator. =P

I listened to a few Mystery Skulls songs after that. Ironically I feel they have better songs than what they chose for that video (commissioned?). But all-in-all, they're not my style - feel kinda like the 70's music I heard so much of in bad movies (and hear almost every single day at my current job...), especially with the lyrics. Without going on a rant, their lyrics tend to feel shallow and petty, especially in Ghost. Basically, they have a nice tune, but I need to be distracted because the moment I comprehend the lyrics, it just makes me angry. :/ Thankfully the music video did just that.

Of course, different tastes and all that. I still feel they have better tunes. Definitely check them out if you liked that song.

Huh, it was called a cash box: https://www.google.com/search?q=cash+box&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=JpjmVKTwDYyWNsuegYAO&ved=0CAkQ_AUoAg&biw=1280&bih=588

EDIT: Wrong thread...

Um...Joystiq and Engadget are teaming up with a new focus: http://www.joystiq.com/

That's interesting I guess...

Oh neat, I like the Carpenters, if only because I listened to them a lot on the radio as a kid (yay 80's music stations).
