Don't do online applications. They're a waste of time. Print out like 20+ resumes and visit every store, restaurant, etc. that you would feel comfortable working at and apply in person. If you don't get any offers immediately, don't give up. Return in a week to the locations that are hiring, or even those that aren't, if you especially want to get hired there. Be persistent, but don't be annoying. It helps if you ask to speak to the hiring manager specifically when you go around handing out your resume. It took me like 3 weeks to get a part time job this way last semester.

It is locked at 1080p and should be 60 fps. We should know more later on.

That's not the end of the world. 1080p is a solid resolution. Sucks for people with 1440p or better monitors, though.

There are always those assholes who will get annoyed and try to pass you, no matter the speed you're going. I've gone like 80mph in a 70mph area and still had people going upwards of 90mph trying to get around me.

If you're in the market for a GPU right now, as in within the next few days/weeks, Nvidia is the way to go. High/mid range AMD GPUs are insanely overpriced right now because of Litecoin mining. It's ridiculous. I wanted an R9 280X for the sweet, sweet price of $299 USD, but now they're upwards of $450 on Newegg.

I have an extensive spreadsheet of "to play" games that contains around 2700 exactly 2867 (as of this moment) games spanning the NES to modern platforms (emulation, etc). I'm currently playing:

  • Ittle Dew (Steam)
  • Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS) - what I'm currently focused on
  • Avadon: The Black Fortress (Steam)
  • Grandia (PS1)
  • Shardlands (iOS)
  • Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective (iOS)
  • The Bridge (Steam)

Pffff. Dark Souls never cheats. I never once felt like the game had an unfair advantage over me.

Who says the choices for Games With Gold are rubbish?

Everyone with a playstation!

Or a PC.

Spoiler: Gamerscore has always been meaningless.

I'm moving up from 1280x800 (on a Macbook Pro) to 1920x1080 (building a PC). Maybe even 3840x1080 if I'm feeling adventurous.

iPhone gets far more games than Android. There are lots of exclusive games that never hit Android. I've played a lot of phone games that I really enjoyed, chiefly Year Walk, Sword & Sworcery, Mirror's Edge, Dead Space (both different games from their console counterparts), Waking Mars, Tiny Wings, pretty much every Kairosoft game (e.g. Game Dev Story, Mega Mall Story), Rayman Jungle Run, Mikey Shorts, Polara, Mass Effect: Infiltrator, Ridiculous Fishing, The Room, Punch Quest, etc.
