what's this about Hot Rod?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 October 2019 - 10:36 PM)

Ex-Bundeswehr personnel, eh? Fascinating.

TF Roll Out Hot Rod's Presentation is coming real soon!!

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:05 PM)

So whenever he addresses his troops, he keeps cracking jokes. Sometimes these jokes are about the blunders he himself had made in his speech the previous day.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:01 PM)

At the moment, I'm blessed with a pretty nice superior. He's got a military background, but he takes an oddly entertaining approach to it. Imagine a stand-up comedian who accidentally enlisted as a drill sergeant.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Another type of everyday absurdity: Imagine you're leaving your workplace for your lunchbreak. Upon your return, you discover that your workplace has been cordened and/or gated off during your break, with "construction site" warning signs everywhere. You go to your superior and tell him: "I can no longer access my workplace! Why is there suddenly a construction site?" Your superior takes a surpised look and says: "I don't know, first time I see this." You figure: "Must be a Tuesday, then."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:51 PM)

It's kind of surreal, really.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:50 PM)

They agree that things are less than ideal, but they acknowledge that their scope of making decisions is limited. Oddly, I keep getting that regardless of how high up the chain of command I bother people.

What's it like to have management that's willing to listen to things they don't want to hear? I've never seen that.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:41 AM)

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

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.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

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.

@  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)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 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!)

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 09:22 AM)

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 am so hugging disappointed with FF Dissidia it hit all the wrong buttons with me a FF fighting game from Team Ninja should be a no brainier well they completely screwed the pooch.

First the character selection is a mess because when I think of Final Fantasy I think of a flat chested girl with a stick wheres Yuna or Tifa? Quistus?

Second the fighting a mess hampered by controls that make little cense attacks are repetitive and bland

 

I have the PSP games I love them easy to start and play a hell of a lot better selection and the controls aren't a broken mess

 

So disappointed this one goes back

Is it true that FF IX, X/X-2, and XII: The Zodiac Age are getting XB1 releases?

They are definitely coming to Switch and XB1, although not until 2019.

I am very happy to hear this as i too want some classic FF, but do not want to buy a PS4 to play it.

Switch and Xbox One are getting Final Fantasy XII: the Zodiac age.

 

It's a pity nothing came of Final Fantasy V and VI remakes that were considered for 3DS.

So Tabata has "resigned" from Square-Enix (which most likely means they asked for the resignation), all the FFXV DLC after Ardyn has been cancelled, and SE took a $33 million loss due to cancelling it.  Makes me wonder how badly they were coming along if they went that far...

 

https://www.gamespot...mpaign=homepage

 

Still, I have really enjoyed FFXV a lot, and have been looking forward to the new DLC, but, alas, hoefully it means they are now working or are a good deal into FFXVI, at least.

I still need to know time table and price point before I get excited. Last time I got excited over a trailer for this thing it was years before hearing anything else and I'm tired of getting hyped over nothing.

I got Final Fantasy XII Zodiac Age for Switch last night. It was a bit of a pill to swallow because I already had it on PS2 and got pretty far on it.

But you know how sometimes you buy a used system and it just feels dirty and gritty and for some reason the hookups work but not quite so you have a system that works, but just isn't much fun to play? That was me and my PS2.

So here I'm hoping that starting over from scratch, I can actually make something of this game. I only got to the first save point last night. Can't wait to get into this thing full force.

My most prominent memory of playing FFXII is the two days it took me to beat the first Demon Wall.

 

Which was an optional boss, a fact I didn't find out until years after playing the game.

 

Also Balthier is great.

Well I don't know how I feel about the more specialized license boards of Zodiac Age vs the every character can do everything boards of the original. But I'm definitely having more fun with this and it much prettier. Portability is always nice. I think it also helps to realize beforehand that Vaan actually isn't the main character. Plus I can always use more Viera in my life. Like, seriously, we either need more non-MMO Ivalice games or make Viera a race outside of Ivalice.

I actually thought XIV would've already had Viera. But then it's not only an MMO, but doesn't it also have a subscription above and beyond the PS+?

I'm afraid I'll have to pass. That's why I specified non-MMO games.

It was a good one. I didn't expect to like the real time combat, but it really was pretty fun.

 

It takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do it tends to be pretty fluid and fun.

 

Also it being more open world, I find myself running on Fallout logic... Sure I COULD take the ship to go to my wedding, but here I am for some reason exploring an abandon mineshaft...

 

EDIT: Okay, that was total bullshit. Sure fill the mine with goblins which are just the right level of annoyance for my party... So of course I think this will be doable... then I come across the boss and get my ass handed to me on a silver platter... Turns out that the boss of this place is goddamn level 50. what the literal hug? If you're gonna have a stupidly strong boss in a dungeon that's not hard to find... then give some warning like enemy enciunters that DON'T lull you into a false sense of security...
