Wow. It seems like SEGA now focuses on producing mostly shit, and keeping the few non-shit titles Japan only. It's a great business model. Bastards.

I have never tried this thing, and would like to correct that oversight.

Well of course we'll have cognac and scotch. And e-cigars. We can have herbalists and prescriptions both, we'll be old.

Don't laugh, people, but I'm about to start watching Hercules again.  Yes, the cheesy show from the 90's with Kevin Sorbo. I have the complete box set from Anchor Bay and it's just something about the atmosphere, characters, and the beautiful women, that just makes me love this damn show....especially the women,lol.

I have all of the Hercules, Sliders, and Highlander TV series. No laughing here, that was some good stuff. :D

I'm still techically around! I...just don't post much anymore. Also, I'm not really all that important! I'm just old. :|

Lucca's alive too!

It will be a strange day when we have to start the RPGfan retirement home... but on the other hand, it will be a badass and fun place. I'm imagining plenty of turn-based goodness, since what twitch reflexes we have will be gone; the biggest TVs we can get to soothe our old eyes; lots of pizza/chinese delivery because fuck old people food; and tons of prescription medication because we're old.

Hell, that sounds great. We should get started on this.
21  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: September 13, 2013, 09:32:20 PM
Or just avoid Nintendo altogether. There's not much worth playing anymore, anyway. I still haven't found a single valid reason to buy a WiiU.

Monolith's X.

My test lead asked me how much cremation services cost today.

THIS IS WHY I DON'T NETWORK.

Heh, good times. Just look him/her in the eye with a blank face and say you'll do it for $50.
23  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: September 13, 2013, 07:57:47 AM
I feel like the implication is that, if you're ever content with your job, you're doing it wrong -- if you're NOT trying to constantly get promoted, then just quit, because you have no place in the workforce. I don't even want to seek more money -- I'm making more than enough as it is.

Also I'm pretty sure my lack of networking is going to fuck me over eventually, too.

Eh, yes and no. Being content and comfortable where you are is awesome. When I was in my early 20s I had a paid off house I'd bought cheap as a repo and rebuilt the inside of and a decent car paid off. My bills were extremely tiny and was damned comfortable and blew money left and right and had plenty of time for gaming and whatnots so I was content with it. Then economic crap happened and I lest my good job and had always ignored the networking thing too. after a year of searching i ended up getting a much worse job at around $10/hour. not a fun job, but my bills were tiny so it paid them and left time for fun. Still good.

Then I met the girl who would become the wife. Her nursey job and mine paid about the same, she eventually moved in and we started planning wedding things. Neighborhood had been getting worse, tons of houses being abandoned, drug busts, several shootings very close by. Girl had something go bad at work and it messed her back up and she was off work. With wedding savings and bills on me the crap job I'd been content with wasn't cutting it at all... couldn't find anything else, though. Had no contacts and no replies to resumes sent. Neighborhood was becoming a place we didn't want to be very quickly, house was paid off but because of how bad the neighborhood had gotten had virtually no resale value, didn't have the income for anything better... was not fun times.

Content is awesome and I'm back to a company and position I'm content in and living in a place we're content with. I've just learned to try to keep things lined up to move forward to something higher paid where I am if needed and take the time to keep in general touch with a few former bosses/colleagues I respect. It isn't something that comes naturally to me, but I can no longer be content when I know one or two sudden big issues could pull the rug out.

If you want to grow and advance don't be content writing code or GMing a store

What if you LIKE writing code? What if you have no interest in being promoted endlessly until you end up in a position you hate or can't do?

Quote
By taking on as many tasks from the person above you as you can you're setting yourself up the same way.

1. What if you don't WANT their spot?
2. If you start doing their stuff if the haven't asked you to, you're either going to piss them off or fuck something up.

The article is advice on advancing and making the most of a career. If you're happy where you are and don't want to move forward in the chain... then don't? I don't think anyone is holding a gun to your head demanding you do so. If they are, call the police.

Lord have mercy on the boy from down in the boondocks did I SERIOUSLY just misspell exsanguinate as exangenuate?

--- edit ---

http://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonnazar/2013/07/23/20-things-20-year-olds-dont-get/ As a 20-something with an employed, this is depressing.


With an employed? o_O

There's some great advice in the article, but it's missing my favorite piece... don't just do your job, do your job and as much of your bosses job as you can. If you want to grow and advance don't be content writing code or GMing a store, try to get involved in showing the new coders or GMs the ropes and helping get them fit in and productive. Train the people under you to be able to do your job and take over as needed, this takes work off of your shoulders and gives you space to take on higher tasks while also training them up for the promotion to take your spot. By taking on as many tasks from the person above you as you can you're setting yourself up the same way. When that supervisor is promoted or leaves the company and you've been doing half his/her work you're an easy person to bump up to the spot, especially when you've already trained people under you to take over your spot.

*edit*

And to add my the haps, just got my pay stub and it's $700 more than expected. Pleasing.

You can't look at that picture without this song. You just  can't.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krAtlzo3ZTo

Grand Cross!

I have the soundtracks for all the old PS games... think my favorite song is Generations of Fate, even though PSIII was my least favorite of the main series.
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Phantasy Star Nova (developed by Tri-Ace) on: September 11, 2013, 05:32:35 PM
Why? A single player focused PS game, finally.... and it just sounds worrisome more than exciting.




It's Phantasy Star, you don't need to have a planet where existing skill sets won't work. There's nothing wrong with having an alien priest, a guy with a sword, an android with giant cannons, a genetically engineered girl with cat ears, and a wizard all working together.

"But we need to create a realistic world. Why would someone fight with swords when such amazing magic and cyborg-cannons exist?"

Fuck you guys. Some people suplex trains.

Will I buy it? Almost certainly. Will I gripe about it? I have since PSO came out, I'm not going to stop now. Give me back my Algol solar system, damn you.

Yes, it hit the stretch I hoped it would get to... fully explorable world map. Not sure entirely what it entails, but I like exploring, worlds, and maps so it HAS to be good.
29  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: September 10, 2013, 01:40:15 PM
Back in Phoenix.

Training for a new promotion... which is a great thing. The down side is it has me staying in Phoeonix for 12 days, then 2 at home, repeat until Thanksgiving.

Annoyances: Flew in yesterday and the hotel I was set to be in wanted to charge me $15/night for net (which I need for work) and put a $50/day hold on my personal debit card on top of $140/night for a room. With the 60+ nights I'm staying until the end of Nov... they're getting $8,000+ of room rentals from just me. There were 3 of us staying here for that length of time, all in separate rooms. $24,000+ in room rentals.

Last trip there were no issues, comp internet, and no mention of personal cards. This trip they hit us with the net thing and then when the first of us went to check in they asked for her personal card for incidentals... which was declined, because they tried to put a hold for $600 ($50/day x 12 days) on for incidentals and she didn't have it. I sent an email to have the company update info to accepting the hold for that and refax the authorization form so we could check in. An hour later, no fax. Called corporate and was told it had been sent. Asked at the desk and was told their fax machine had been down all day. WTF? Why not tell me that an hour ago?

Got pissed, called and had us rebooked to a place on the other side of our daily training point. New place is $80/night with comp internet and free breakfast, dinner, and cocktail hour. The first place lost over $24,000 in room rentals on this trip and was blacklisted by a company that holds this type of training almost continually. lol.

Happy things: Rental place was out of full size when I showed up so I got bumped up to a 2014 Mustang convertible that they just got in the night before for this 12 day stay. Not bad. Also brought my PS3 this trip and managed to disable OnCommand hotel BS and change inputs. I have 3-4 hours a night and a day off in the hotel free, and Phoenix is hot as hell, so plan is to unwind by grinding the hell out of Graces and Disgaea 4.

Wait... what?

Another in the PSO/PSU series with offline play..... or... Phantasy Star V? O_O!


*edit* http://www.siliconera.com/2013/09/08/phantasy-star-nova-announced-for-vita-tri-ace-developing/

Quote
Sega announced Phantasy Star Nova which takes place in the same world as Phantasy Star Online 2. It will be an offline game and sold in stores unlike PSO2. Players can connect together through ad-hoc play. The biggest surprise is tri-Ace is the developer of Phantasy Star Nova. Sega also showed a giant monster called Gigantes, which players will fight.

 

Phantasy Star Nova is slated for release in 2014


Tri-Ace... Phantasy Star. Sounds like a great combo. Hey, Tri-Ace actually ports some game to English in NA, too. Maybe there will be a game in the PSO2 world released in NA before PSO4 is released after all.
