Caved and bought the Mass Effect Trilogy for PS3 last week.
Pros: Much of the DLC is included right out the box.
Cons: Load times are killer, audio doesn’t always sync up and sometimes sounds louder/softer than it should in certain situations.
I’m only on ME1 right now, but that’s what I’ve seen so far. The 360 definitely performed better thanks to the ability to install the games on the hard drive, but saving money on DLC is a huge way to numb that pain.
The past month has been taking its toll on me. While it’s had its share of high notes, it’s been mentally exhausting. May not be a big deal, but idk. Anyways, after tonight, I’m not gonna be on Tumblr for at least a week or so. I doubt that anyone will be devastated by my absence, but whatever.
For anyone that wants to reach me during that time, get at me through these methods:
Text: if you have it.
So what are you thinking as for your job? By taking the 50 cent pay cut, you also save gas money, so it works out, but if you took the managerial test and passed, why not apply? Stress? I mean you KNOW what can be improved and how to treat people with respect better than the current a-holes (or at least they sound like a-holes) in the position, you could revamp it so instead of putting everyone down, you could actually be working together as you should be.
I don’t personally feel like a leader. Hell, there’s a guy I work with who failed the test, but some of the managers still want to push for him to get a position. There’s no competing with that bullshit here. If you aren’t a brown-noser, you’re stuck where you are until you quit or get fired. That’s how it works here.
I don’t mean I was down a bit. I mean it got to the point where I was bawling my eyes out in front of 2 of my bosses. I was originally having a good day, but being left alone to let my mind wander had been exhausting me. Then, one of the CSM’s came to me asking if I was transferring to the new store 2 miles away from me (as opposed to the 10-ish miles I drive now). The issue with this is I’d be taking a $.50 pay cut. Trust me, I’d love to be able to just have a 5-minute drive as opposed to near-30 minutes away. But I can’t afford losing money; I have trouble as is making my paychecks last 2 weeks.
Anyways, he tells me that I should just try and put in for a higher-paying position, possibly even lead in the back room. I’ve been working there just shy of a full year, and while I have general knowledge of it all, I don’t quite feel like I’m qualified for the position. I actually took the management test last month and passed it, so that plus my degree definitely helps, but I still don’t feel it will do anything for me. It got to the point where I was venting out my frustrations from the past month (mostly about management) and then the tears flowed freely.
With 3 hours left in my shift, I was so close to just leaving right there. It was embarrassing, because I’ve tried to be a team player here, but right after the holidays ended, nearly every manager has been busting our balls in the back. We don’t get the respect that we should have earned by now, with doing the store’s most difficult job and getting shit pay for it. Here’s a harsh truth: respect is earned. Not just by the workers, but by the leaders. Just because you have a title of leadership does not mean I have to respect you. If you’re treating me like shit, I will respond the exact same way. Your paycheck is probably more than twice what I get. That makes you better than me? If you’re a prick, I’ll tell you that you are, boss or not. We put up with too much shit that having to deal with a complaining manager just isn’t worth our time.
Basically, I’m at another low point. I had just gotten out of one from last week, but today just brought it all back. Just when it seems like things are starting to go well, something has to send it all to hell.
1. Is the Mass Effect Trilogy for PS3 as good as the Xbox 360 version? Haven’t touched my 360 since Christmas so I keep contemplating getting it again, but don’t know if the investment in that and additional DLC is worth it.
2. I keep hearing about the next installment in the Mass Effect universe and apparently the movie. We know that the next game won’t involve Shepard (duh), but details about the film are confusing at best. How about this: THE FUCKING FIRST CONTACT WAR?!?
it’s weird playing mass effect 3 because you come across all these feuds between different races of aliens that have existed for centuries and seemingly nothing can possibly get them to reconcile but then shepard steps in and it’s like
