Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

I know it's highly unlikely because Konami is the worst, BUT.....

 

I would love to see Konami kick out a nice little Castlevania collection for the Switch, especially since Symphony of the Night has never been released on any Nintendo console (granted, neither has Final Fantasy 7 for that matter).  I think Castlevania Chronicles (since 1 and 4 are on the Classics systems), Rondo of Blood and the PSP rework of Symphony of the Night would be a solid $40 from me easy.  Hell, make it a remaster of the PSP Dracula X Chronicles (with the option of playing the classic 2D versions from the outset) plus PSX Chronicles and they could just port the damn thing to everyone else.

I have to wonder if some of the Castlevania NES games arn't going to be one of the ones on the Online services.

And yes.. I'd love a few games to make it.

And I've been replaying SotN and I just got Rondo of Blood up and runing on my PSP emulator.

I'm probably in the minority of people who want an updated Harmony of Despair with better character balance (just so you don't constantly see 5-6 Somas online :wtf) and additional characters like SotN Maria, Stella and Loretta - maybe Chronicles Simon, too.

Just had an idea for how to either please or completely troll the people still demanding Waluigi as a playable Smash Bros. character.

 

Instead of an "Echo Fighter", release him as an "Echo Boss" of Crazy Hand and Master Hand.  Just add the Γ to the backs of his gloves and play some of his audio clips during the battle.  Bonus points if this this iteration of Smash surprises us by bringing back the "Challenge" mode, so we can title the fight something like "Not Happening" or "Let It Go".

 

Then again, I'm the one who kind of wants one of Simon's palettes to reference Castlevania: Judgment because... well... it was a Wii exclusive, wasn't it? ;)

 

Edit: Heh, my finger slipped and so I hit "s" twice instead of "d" when typing "add". XD It... almost made sense in context. >.>

Well, not only, but definitely centered around it.

I don't think my Charlotte could ever absorb ten Hellfire and ten Dark Inferno had there been five Somas slamming their head into Dracula at the same time.
