So today I had my performance review at work and while I do have a few tiny things they asked to improve upon, nothing major mostly tiny things that I've been gradually improving year round, But I did get A Lot of major compliments in my performance review. In addition I got a pay raise which by all accounts is a promotion and seeing as how I'm basically in charge of helping out new recruits and telling them what to do, i'm essentially a supervisor now. It doesn't mean a huge amount as assistant managers do everything and we have an ass load of assistant managers but being a supervisor is one step up and seeing as how I worked my ass off all year for this, I think I have earned the right to now gloat at all thee a holes calling me a fat unachieved lazy loose including my father and other jackasses:
How do you like me now bitches!?! YEAH! How's that for some lazy unachieved loose! Ain't got shit on me bitches!
ok Gloating over but in all seriousness this was a huge accomplishment and totally worth it. This basically meIi should be getting paid atleast 600 dollars per pay check (which is every two weeks) which is a huge improvement.

I am curious if Bioware does not understand the fundamentals of making and selling merchandize and if they have a bunch of kindergarteners working for them... and no i don't know how Asian and European school systems work so its basically think of whatever kind of school your 6 to 8 year old children or cousins or nephews go to
what brings this on is this:
"has most romances of any Bioware game"
Ok first off thats not a real sentence.
I think what they meant to say was:
"Dragon Age Inquisition has more romances than any other Bioware game"
Regardless this is of course a lie.
Dragon Age Inquisition has been confirmed for having 8 romances total
As our friend here who can't write, willingly pointed out:
SWTOR had 21 romances
Mass Effect 3 had 10 romances
Mass Effect 2 had 6 - 6 and a half romance options
Mass Effect 1 had 3 romance options
Dragon Age Origins had 4 romance options
Dragon Age 2 had 5 romance options
wait the fuck, Mass Effect 3 had 10 romance options?
you could romance Traynor and Cortez and Diana Allers if that counts as a romance and then any romances u did in the previous games all carried through but mostly it was just 3 new romances ok so scratch that for ME 3 its actually 3 romances not 10
Your probably asking what point am i trying to get at with all this and i advise reading from this point on if u simply want to skip all the math i was doing and analyzing
Bioware is under a lot of... heat you could say right now. Bioware's Mass Effect branch is hiding behind the Dragon Age branch hoping to god Inquisition soars with flying colors so they can come out of hiding and not fear fan retaliation
I would think with that being said it goes without saying that Bioware can NOT fuck this up and needs to nail this as hard as they did the Citadel dlc for Mass Effect 3 less they face an even bigger controversy than DA 2 and ME 3
For those of you who don't know, Bioware has already recieved some deal of controversy in the fact that they refuse to sell their Inquisitor eddition to Gamestop and instead if u actually wanted it, you had to have it sent to your home meaning u have to either pay extra to have it on the day of release Or you have to wiat almost another week just to get the game since Bioware refuses to actually send it to Gamestop
Of course u can just buy the lesser edditions as i had to but thats still very bad sportsmanship to already be offering such edditions only to borderline punish people for buying them
for those who do not know, Varric Tethras is one of Dragon Age's biggest fan characters next to Alistair (for reasons i dont know other than that the guy is able to use his normal voice and yet match the character amazingly well and is a pretty funny nice guy too)
In case your not familiar with Bioware games, normally you make the fan favorites romance options just FYI seeing as how people kind of want to be with the Oh you know,, fan favorites. Kind of common sense really. The Mass Effect branch figured this out but for some reason i have to narrate this for the Texas Dragon Age branch
So already there is a 90% chance the fan favorites of this series are being knocked away unable to be romanced at all period.
and if that was not enough apparently we are introducing racism into Dragon Age where there are certain characters who won't romance you if your a certain race
You know i get Bioware is trying to make their romances more believable and realistic when they don't have to cause
they nailed it in Mass Effect. Cause they got a couple right in Mass Effect but just... Wow...I mean.. i am sorry but no i do not think adding racism to a game suddenly makes it more realistic.
Like lets say this was a modern day game. Let's say Bioware was making a modern day game, would it be ok to have a character say like:"I won't romance you cause your Asian. Or i won't romance you cause your black. Or i won't romance you cause your white or i won't romance you cause your Muslim and i hate all muslims"
i mean the fuck?? Obviously maybe Some people feel that way yeah granted but its not something you go waving around like a flag or else your alienating people. Being open minded and respectful is a GOOD THING
Being a racist one minded intolerant biggot is NOT a good thing
and yet were already introducing the game basing characters on that? Fuck me
THE MORAL OF WHAT I AM SAYING IS BIOWARE IS ON THIN ICE AND THEY SHOULD NOT BE ACTING LIKE COMPLETE INTOLERANT IDIOTIC BIGGOTS BEFORE THE GAME IS EVEN OUT! IF NOT FOR THE DRAGON AGE FANS THEN FOR THE MASS EFFECT FANS WHO ALSO NEED THIS GAME TO BE SUCCESFUL IN ORDER TO GET THEIR NEW MASS EFFECT GAME
I guess you could say, EVERY BIOWARE FAN is counting on this game to be succesful to restore the company's honor so much so that they shouldn't be acting like racist intolerant idiotic biggots and borderline sabotaging their efforts!
If you took all the time tor ead this i appreciate it, if not... well i won't be hugely surprised as i realize this is targetting the Bioware fans

So i wanted to post my own journal regarding the end of the day with my thoughts opinions ect towards E3's Day 1 or Day 0 idk i am tired and its like 3am.
This has probably been said many times but being kind of a neutral party, i also wanted to cover this.
Microsoft did not hold anything back as it brought out its biggest guns it had, giving us everything we wanted to know and hear about Halo while also adding more information about Dragon Age
Granted the rest of their performance was a mind fuck as everything kept screwing up in spectacular mind blowing ways with them now showing any games we wanted to see and showing many games we didn't care to see
However they were able to convince me to buy a One simply due to the Halo games they are making and how much effort heart and soul they are putting into them
Sony responded in the most dickish aka rudest way they possibly could as they constantly gloated about how many companies they have bought over and got to support them as in giving them huge advantadges over Microsoft, including:
Ubisoft/ Bungie/ Disney/ Techland/ and a few others
My problem is not only is this a dick move to constantly gloat about how many companies are in your pocket but in addition not providing any real meat to reinforce you.
Throughout the entire press conference there were only two PS Only games that really motivated me even remotely and they were both basically the exact same thing. A Van Helsing like Steampunk gothic warrior slaying zombies and werewolves and all other kinds of monsterous creatures.
Sony pulled out its big guns by the end of the presentation as it brought out Uncharted which i know is yes one of their franchises biggest successes but no Killzone? Words can not even describe my dissapointment. Killzone and Uncharted are their two biggest giants holding up the company and yet we only got Uncharted? I am sure all the Uncharted fans see this as more than worthy competition for Halo but idk. I mean if ur obsessed with Uncharted great but even without me being a fan of the series, i dont think its even remotely a match to a series as old as Halo that has numerous times given Microsoft the edge.
Perhaps i was asking for too much, i just seem confused and with a general mindset of.. What the fuck... that Microsoft pulled out its biggest guns and THIS is all Sony has to defend itself, childish retorts of: Neh neh na neh neh we bought over all these companies from you! Neh na neh neh neh!"
and even if u are obsessed with Uncharted, u cant look at that like 30 second trailer and go: Yep i clearly learned everything i needed to know, i mean come on Halo had a giant segment promoting it. Sony's biggest defense, its biggest weapon was only given a few seconds 0_o
Just ignore my rambling if u feel like it, anyone actually reading this
In my mind this press conference has only proven one thing. That Sony has the mentality of a child. They slapped Microsoft in the face last year and instead of having the balls to stand and fight Microsoft as it prepares to beat the crap out of them, they run and hide behind all of Microsoft's partners; too afraid to actually fight Microsoft and try to stand up against them

So i am making this journal as a joke to lighten the mood
I always loved Heart of the Swarm and hugely loved everything they did with Kerrigan. SPOILERS btw if you haven't beat HOTS yet and want to but not sure how you wouldn't have beat it by now
(cut to 3:10)
but upon beating this game for like the third or forth time, i looked at the ending and thought:
Hey wait a minute.... that strangely looks so familiar.....
(cut to 2:33)
Well i guess Blizzard was a big fan of old DC 0_0 but does explain one reason i love HOTS's ending so much haha

I feel as if i now need to establish this in bold before i say anything else but this is NOT a rant journal. Again this is NOT a rant journal
This is me just thinking out loud about an issue all countries face regarding TV and while some may argue well this isn't exactly what Putin is doing! No i do not know what that derranged wolf is doing and frankly i question how the Russian leadership process works looking at their track record of Stalin, Kruschev, Gorbochev, and Putin
so no i am not saying this issue is any more serious or minor than any other issue, its just something i want to talk about out loud. Maybe you'll see what i am saying and agree with me, either way i am not trying to cause an arguement just trying to think out loud
Now with all that out of the way,
have you ever wondered the thought process into a show choosing a network? Now i mean i'll get the obvious out of the way right now:
"But Eric some TV networks will cancel shows either because they just feel like it or the show is not getting good ratings or it goes against their Christain beliefs namely with: Johnny Bravo, Fosters Home for Imaginery Friends, Invader Zim, Time Squad, Megas XLR, Samurai Jack, Family Guy was nearly canned several times along with Futurama, Ugly Americans"
Yes your right but that makes me wonder still how does it work
Ok looking at my TV now i know there are some shows that you know who the target audience is for. Like for instance the Amazing World of Gumball and Uncle Grandpa. You know by the titles alone of those shows that they are targetted purely for kids. I mean yeah you can watch an episode of them and see even more that they are meant for kids. Shows that make no sesne at all and are just silly over the top jokes. Its the same formula Loony Toons did when it was made for kids
Ok so thats clear but now what about a show thats made for adults?
It has always bugged me that the show Adventure Time is put on a kids network despite it being entirely an adults show. So why put it on a kids network? and people in the past have ranted at me saying: Oh its clearly for kids! No it really isn't. For those of you that don't know the show please allow me to elaborate every reason the show is meant for adults:
1. It takes place after nuclear war and constantly reminds you of the holocaust caused by the nuclear war (id say that would be ok for kids if this was the Cold War since they showed stuff like that all the time but this isn't the Cold War)
2. There is supposed to be lesbien couples on the show but because the network is run by the Christian Church or Catholic church (i dont know which one) they try to prevent from showing that
3. Hell is in this show and it is so beyond creepy and terrifying that, hell i dont even have children and i know i wouldn't show them this show because it will give you nightmares and make Tim burtons work look timid
4. Everything else in the show that isnt part of hell, is still tremendously creepy including showing people flayed alive with their insides sticking out (which in case you need reminding was something Invader Zim did and got a lot of heat for) and tons of blood
5. Sucking your souls out in the most terrifying way possible (an idea done by an adult anime)
6. curse words and very strong language. They cover the worlds with like glob and lumps but its very obvious they are saying fuck off and oh my god and go fuck yourself just replacing the word fuck with lump but anyone can easily notice that and i question the logic behind teaching your children to curse you off
7. Some characters pasts in the show are so dark and sad that you expect it from some adult drama show or some very amazing great anime like idk Evangellion or Black Lagoon or Guren Lagann but NOT from a kids show
8. they talk about divorce in the show, again i am not a parent yet even i know divorce is the one thing kids are NEVER comfortable with and it causes more damage to kids than anything else i know so i cant see any logic in talking about divorce to kids even in a joking way. Adult audiences understand but not kids
9. The main villain of the show is an undead/ demon sorcerer that was also made to creep you out and make you shit bricks all included with one of the creepiest voices ever that even some major dark villains in video game companies would be like: Daaamn 0_o
10. There are gay men in the show but they try to hide this by for instance masking over their voice despite their appearences still looking like the most sterotypical gays you have ever seen to a pardon my language but a flamboyant degree
11. The idea of Xenomorphs comes in one episode. YES Xenomorphs as in from Alien as in from Aliens as in the Rated R movie that scared the living shit out of most people and there is an actual episode in Adventure Time based on that. They of course change the Xenomorph with a deer but its still beyond creepy and follows the same formula as the Xenomorph
I could go on but ill end it there
so why is Adventure Time put on a kids network?
Well its possible the show's creators dont get along with Adultswim or any other networks like maybe any Japanese ones. Maybe the show's creators hate certain other networks that the show could go on, whether they hate other shows on the network or they just hate the networks owners
either way CN is HUGELY limiting the full potential of the show hugely holding them back and forcing them to try and appeal to kids when they clearly have as minimal interest as possible

I am just leaving a message to all the Warhammer players out there as theres a huge issue going on right now with Unbound.
Apparently from what i have read about rumors with 7th eddition, Unbound armies will NOT be allowed to hold and capture objectives
So in short the simple solution to stop anyone trying to cheat, not follow the rules fairly, and use Unbound armies is to simply play an Objective based game so its impossible for them to win
This is just a quick update i wanted to give for it if it helps calm the situation that Unbound players can be handled whether you choose to face them or not
Thats all i got for now, hope that maybe helps the mood =)
