I work in the technical support of an power company where I try to help out people over the phone if they have to electricity to see if they need our help or the help of an electrician.
It's not so bad where I'm at, but I do get the feeling that frontline, who takes cares of bills, has it worse, since they often have to uphold the rules until a customer complains high enough in the system and gets their way.
I hate it when people who complain enough get their way... It's not fair that people get special treatment for being jerks.
If someone got hysterical in the supermarket over there was just one register open, would you let them cut in line? Would it be fair to you?
There's a difference between sexualizing women and being sexist towards women.
Sexy women is more than ok in my book, but because they are sexy shouldn't mean that they can't do other stuff well too.
In general, our society celebrates sexy people, which is why they usually are kinda douchy and dumb since people seem to like them regardless of what they do or how talented they are, but there are always exception to the rules.
This all sucks. Especially when you hear in other news what powerhouses like EA are doing to take greed to a new level. The next-gen talk on last weeks podcast was kinda depressing as well with all the talk on future prices.
There's not really been a lot of Japanese games worth importing in this console generation, perhaps maybe because of how all the interesting things eventually get localized or because western games have grown so much.
Anyway, one game that is really worth importing is the recently released E.X. Troopers. It's a part of Capcom's Lost Planet franchise, but because it's "too Japanese" for the West, Capcom currently doesn't have any plans to localize it... On the other hand we do get Lost Planet 3... so... that's nice, I guess.
I put together this video which is a sorta review, but also explains what the game is about. Please check it out!
