Why does every damn website want to send me notifications? NO, no one wants your popups! Quit asking!

@  Echowarrior : (18 October 2019 - 09:19 AM)

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....

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)

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'm halfway tempted to pick up that Deux Ex director's cut, even though I have the original.

 

I urge everyone to pick up Enslaved if you haven't played it yet. Such an underrated game.

Free weekend for Saints Row 4 on Steam from now until Jan 20th. The game itself is 50% off, and franchise pack at 60% off. If you haven't tried the game yet, now would be your best chance. I can't recommend the game enough, it's pure over-the-top chaotic fun. With super powers!

 

Also free weekend for Company of Heroes 2 on Steam. Game's 66% off too.

Dude, hit me up on that if you like. I've got Sr2, haven't played yet tho. I love doing those games in co-op, my usual buddy has been reluctant for some reason. 

 

Maybe he burnt out on playing and re-playing SR3, only to do it again in SR4 thanks to a corrupted save file.

New weekly humble bundle is up https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly , not bad for $6 you get 

 

ARMA: Gold edition

ARMA Tactics

ARMA 2

ARMA 2: Op. Arrowhead

ARMA 2 Day Z mod (ok this one is free anyway, but nice they included it for convenience)

Alpha Prime

Take on Helicopters

UFO: Afterlight

Carrier Command: Gaea Mission

 

There's also the Humble Bundle X https://www.humblebundle.com/ for less than $6

To the Moon
Joe Danger 2: The Movie
Papo & Yo
Runner2 
HOARD
Strike Suit Zero
Toki Tori 2+
Reus
Surgeon Simulator 2013
 
Been interested in trying out ARMA, tho they'll likely sit in my pile of shame for a while, and a few games I'm interested in the X bundle. 
 
I'd also HIGHLY suggest anyone who hasn;t already done so to bookmark https://www.humblebundle.com/ and check it weekly. Some really great games tend to pop up at dirt cheap prices which all benefit charities.
 
It's feel good gaming at its best!

So... If I get SR4 this weekend, do I have to pay for it once it's over?

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Will totally do that.  I love playing with friends.

Well...looks like I'm adding 'use my Gamestop gift card for PSN network credit' this weekend....



When you find yourself standing on the brink of surrender, know that many in the past faced trials such as your own, but overcame them with their great conviction.
No matter the greatness of your desperation, the failures of your efforts, or the injustice of your treatment, at least a few men have stared into the same challenges and emerged victorious from these tests.
Such men are not only a great source of inspiration, but also the very foundation upon which modern society rests.

I already have the game, is there any way to upgrade it to the Game of the Year Edition - or transfer? I'm trying to figure out if I should buy the Season Pass, or if that's a less impressive deal than doing it another way.

The included DLC bought separately at it's current sale price would run you $37.50, so technically it's cheaper to just buy the GOTY. 

 

I'm picking up the last of the headhunters pack's I was missing, otherwise I have all of the DLC (minus the skins/heads packs). 

 

Oh and there's no way to upgrade to GOTY, it's just a bundle that you already own part of.
