  • One of the reasons experts suspect North Korea has decided to close its doors on their nuclear program is that their underground mountain in which they were doing testing is, well, gone. As in it caved in on itself. And now North Korean leaders fear of nuclear radioactivity. gizmodo.com/north-korea-s-nucl…d-in-geologist-1825576845

Bungie isn't making the perfect game of my dreams (I mentioned before that I want to work on single-player stuff), but they're too great of a company to pass up. Stable, never had a layoff, they're not a one-hit wonder like Riot is, they actually make games unlike Valve, consistent history of making good stuff.

    You know, if this were some alternate timeline, I might have gone off to design games. I have this bad habit of occasionally contemplating on the what-ifs. Indulge me! How often do you consider working at other companies or seeing if the grass is greener elsewhere? I have a friend that works at Riot, and let me tell you, I've contemplated switching careers on a few occasions because of how amazing she makes her workplace out to be. Beer on tap, lounge zones, personal and creative freedom. Does B…

What do you do with 25 million people that have been brainwashed for generations and have little to no education and understanding of the way the world works? It would completely destroy South Korea's economy. There would have to be a multi-countr…

    So my work has infinite, free coffee. They like to keep their researchers energized and in the labs awake. It is only recently with age I have began to appreciate the taste of a nice, hot black coffee coupled with a cigarette. There's truly nothing quite like it. For a while my diet consisted of cigarettes and coffee (I was one of THOSE guys; inorite?). I've since cut back on smoking, but the appreciation for black coffee stuck. And so that's the story of how I significantly reduced my Starbucks…

    I had to uninstall it because I had almost 2k hours clocked in. That and I kept going back to it as my default "to play" game. My backlog was piling way too high. That being said, I'm pretty good at the game. Especially sniper. Not sure now though, it has been a while.

  • Capcom has somehow managed to disappoint me time and time again for the last few years. DLC controversies, botching series', failure to import games people want in a timely manner or at all, failure to develop games. They did okay with SFIV. But I haven't been too happy with them for a while. Mainly I'm just really salty about Megaman Legends 3 though.

    Quote from Bruce Leeroy: “Quote from Xeno: “ Quote: “Unless he professionally microwaves that to.” I won't lie. I'd actually be tempted to watch that. ” *sigh* Ahhh, and the cycle never ends. In all honesty, to me, an LE edition New 3ds XL is the same as any regular ol New 3ds XL. I refrained myself from getting frustrated only for the sole fact that there are still Majora's mask copies out there. Which, to me, is really all that matters. But then again, what about the collection value if you we…

The first two issues weren't all that good, the humour either mostly wasn't good or didn't translate well, and the light tone didn't gel well with the Madoka universe. The final three were much better, though I still had some issues with some of the magic in play. It made it like a mystery novel where you aren't given enough pieces to come to the right conclusion. That said, I can't actually say that that's inconsiste…

There isn't a lot I can tell you (because I haven't played GEB) other than try all the weapon types, see which one resonates with you the most, then stick with that one. You could watch a tutorial on whichever weapon to learn the finer points and secrets so you get a head start on using it properly. The tutorials will have stuff the game doesn't tell you. Other than that, I dunno how much grind GEB has, but if you want equip…

    I should probably mention that playing Devil's Advocate a lot tends to get oneself in trouble from time to time. You tend to be painted as the bad guy even if you might agree with the other side. So it isn't always the best way to go about things. But it is fairly straightforward. And those attentive enough to realize what you're doing typically respect it, especially in a setting where a lot of people are (unfairly) ganging up on someone else.

  • Some folks are able to keep a job and still actively look for a 'better' one, but it definitely requires a certain mindset that others lack. Once bills start coming and the cash starts flowing, one might feel less inclined to pursue other goals and settle for where they're at. Not necessarily at any fault of their own, it could just be circumstance or their personality. In the end you just have to ask yourself if you'll be content with going back to the pet store. If you're going to be miserable…

    I tend to play Devil's Advocate a lot. One might think this has no relevancy towards 'speaking up' for someone else's defense when he or she is not present, but actually I tend to play it the most when the odds are against a topic or a person. Moreso when there's an obvious 'disadvantage' where the topic or person in question isn't being 'fairly' represented in the conversation -- be it in a group setting or a conversation with one other person. So do I speak up when I hear mean things about oth…

    Once you purchase an item, you're free to cause as much damage as you want to it. So I won't get mad at the person for exercising his or her right as a consumer. On the plus side, his microwave will forever have that new Majora's Mask N3DS smell.

    I'm new to Monster Hunter, but not new to the genre. I played the crap out of Gods Eater Burst (which was often said to be a sort of easier MH clone), so I was hoping that some of those skills would carry over. Probably the biggest difference between the two franchises is how much more free roam MH is compared to GEB. Sometimes I get lost in the map and forget where things are in MH; whereas in GEB the missions were much more focused on, well, the missions. I'll get accustomed to it with some mo…

    Probably none of them. I haven't repeated the Zelda games too many times for pleasure sake (only for writing up guides and recalling lore). If I had to choose one, it'd probably be Ocarina of Time. Although I'd imagine with Majora's Mask 3DS on the ready, I'll soon find myself playing that several times over.

How do you normally go about finding a job and have you ever thought about changing your strategy?

I don't know what your housing situation is like, but if you're in a position where you can take a little time off to find a better job that…
